Subject Re: seeking help with jackrabbit-jcr-servlet component
Date Tue, 22 Jul 2008 18:56:48 GMT
Hi --

So, here's what I tried:

I created a servlet that extends ContextRepositoryServlet,  for which the 
init-param "path" is set to the context path of the
source servlet ("/jackrabbit").   In the init() for this servlet, I did a 
Repository rep = new ServletRepository(this).

Then, when I tried a session = rep.login(), I got the following exception:
javax.servlet.ServletException: javax.jcr.RepositoryException: Invalid 
repository: Attribute javax.jcr.Repository in servet context Jackrabbit JCR 
Server is an instance of 
org.apache.jackrabbit.commons.repository.ProxyRepositoryAm I even on the 
right track?

Thanks

Betty
