Subject [jira] Created: (CONTINUUM-527) Getting Started Documentation omits JAVA_HOME requirement
Date Fri, 23 Dec 2005 13:55:45 GMT
Getting Started Documentation omits JAVA_HOME requirement

         Key: CONTINUUM-527
     Project: Continuum
        Type: Improvement

  Components: Documentation  
    Versions: 1.0.2    
 Environment: RedHat 9, Sun JDK 1.4.2_01, java in PATH
    Reporter: Jamie Flournoy

The documentation says you can just unpack the tarball and execute but this is not
accurate. I had to define JAVA_HOME. ./bin/linux/ failed with a not very descriptive
error message:
Running continuum...
wrapper  | --> Wrapper Started as Console
wrapper  | Launching a JVM...
wrapper  | Unable to start a JVM
jvm 1    | wrapper  | Unable to start JVM: No such file or directory (2)
jvm 1    | wrapper  | Critical error: wait for JVM process failed (No child processes)
wrapper  | <-- Wrapper Stopped

So either should check for whether JAVA_HOME is defined, or the docs should say it's
required, or (even better!) both.
