Subject [jira] Reopened: (GERONIMO-1900) Sample app links on welcome app are broken by default

Prasad Kashyap reopened GERONIMO-1900:

I tried the Continuum build from 05/23/06 that i downloaded from

The examples mechanism is broken. It installs but the startup is broken. The apps show up
on the list of Web App WARs in the console but you cannot start them. There is a "Lifecycle
operation failed" exception.

Another issue is that just about anybody can install the examples now. It does not have to
be an authorized Geronimo user. There is no authentication before the example is installed.

> It would be nice to take users to a page that would prompt them to install the sample
if they click a link to it and it's not present. However, automating this would require us
to be able to construct a link into a portlet, which does not seem easy. 
> For now, the welcome app can include pages at the locations where the sample apps will
be bound, with text to the effect of: 
> This sample has not yet been installed. To install it, visit the (URL)console(/URL) and
select the Plugins page, click the Search for Plugins button, and select the (NAME HERE) sample
to install. Then visit this same URL again to view the (NAME HERE) example.
