Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-4208) Eliminate individual sample references from Geronimo Welcome Page
Date Mon, 14 Jul 2008 19:58:31 GMT
Eliminate individual sample references from Geronimo Welcome Page
-----------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: GERONIMO-4208
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-4208
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
    Affects Versions: 2.1.2, 2.2
            Reporter: Joe Bohn
            Assignee: Joe Bohn
             Fix For: 2.1.2, 2.2


Currently there is an issue with the specific samples listed in the Geronimo Welcome Page.
 The 3 samples are the Servlet Examples, JSP Examples, and the LDAP demo.  In addition to
this there is a link to the wiki pages describing the complete set of samples.  These samples
present several problems and therefore should be removed for the following reasons:
1) There is always a period of time when the links to install the samples will not work because
the samples themselves are not yet released.  It is necessary that the samples are released
after the server release.
2) The LDAP demo requires a directory implementation either install in Geronimo or external
to Geronimo.  In the past this was not an issue because directory was embedded in the Geronimo
server.  However, that has since been removed and is delivered as an independent plugin.
3) It is implied that the samples are readily available with the server image by having them
directly referenced on the welcome page.   However, the samples are not included in the server
image.  Therefore, even if the samples are already published they still require network connectivity
to download and install.

Rather than include these specific samples with links we will instead just include the link
to the wiki pages with direction for installing and working with the samples.

This was discussed on the Geronimo dev list:
