Subject Re: [C2.0rc1] Cocoon installation fails on IONA iPortal App Server
Date Thu, 25 Oct 2001 11:31:29 GMT
Hi,
I am working with HP-AS it is newly released J2EE platform app server.
Cocoon cannot be deployed as WAR unless WAR is extracted!!!!!!!

Tomcat has a configuration parameter to specify if the WAR should be
extracted before "usage".
The default is set to "true". What does it means is that as a first step WAR
is extracted then the rest of initialization happens.
Internal Cocoon classpath is set, sitemap is compiled and life is beautiful.

When the WAR is not extracted we have some problems. The problem is that the
result of getRealPath() method is undefined and
classpath cannot be correctly set and everything relying on classpath is
failing - compilation of the sitemap is the first victim.

In fact this problem is on my to-do list. I hope to fix Cocoon code to
surpass this limitation very soon.

Other minor problem is that I need to override HP-AS xalan.jar and
xerces.jar with those shipped with Cocoon.
Regards,
Kinga
