Subject Re: Liferay as a Geronimo Plugin
Date Sat, 28 Jun 2008 19:28:17 GMT
Hi Arnaud

I just added the plugin console stuff to the tomcat server and a mysql 
db plugin. Last time I tested It worked fine to switch database and 
running from mysql but things may be in a flux as I am currently 
rearranging things.

As you are building from source you should be able to install the mysql 
db plugin from your local repository.
 From here on you should be able to add what else geronimo plugins you 
have in your repos :).

The docs are not yet updated with instructions for the db switching.
