Hi Jakob,

Excellent! The team of people who are looking into deploying AB consists 
of 3 members - you, Saraswathi and me. Is there anybody else? ;)

It would be much appreciated if AB could be successfully deployed before 
Geronimo 1.0 is out.

Well, to be honest, there was not much information on how to get thus 
far. We kept getting emails from Saraswathi that the work is ongoing and 
some success reported, but nothing more technical involved.

I think we should consider working with AB 1.0.3 instead. Since it's the 
latest release of AB, I assume there're some bugs fixed, so we won't 
have to spend ages to sort them out. See I'll update the wiki and dds if 
necessary soon (probably later tonight).

Why? I'm all ears to hear/read a better solution.

Take a look at maven.xml file. That's where you'll find out what modules 
are deployed. It's worth to change it a little to add the missing 
functionality you described.

Hmm, what do you mean by "an already installed server"? Is it the one 
built by assembly? If so, please note that adventure builder is supposed 
to be deployed without the full source code checked out (although 
there's a "feature" where it won't without the top-level etc directory).

I haven't yet figured it out what's wrong. I guess it depends on other 
modules to be deployed. So, the first step would be to deploy other 
modules and give it a try again.

Positive. I hope Saraswathi will publish the plans soon.

They're not in the repository. They need to be build from scratch.

Hehe, I guess it *does* require the other modules to be deployed.
