Subject J2 weblogic login problem
Date Fri, 29 Apr 2005 16:21:59 GMT
I asked this question on the users list already.  I thought I would
ask it on the develpers list.  I didn't know where the appropriate
place would be.

I am having an issue with the j2 head.  I installed it on Weblogic and
I can't login.  the login form is trying to post to
security/login/proxy.  What is happening is that it is getting the
context root of the war (security.war) which in weblogic you are
required to supply a /web-inf/weblogic.xml that specifies the
context-path of the war.  This is required to be distinct to weblogic.
 It is set to security therefore security is being placed in the
context-path of the form instead of jetspeed.

I have found this earlier issue.  Is anything being done other that
what is listed below.  I mean, is there a permanent fix? It appears
that the jira issue isn't fixed for weblogic.

I still encouter a 404 error, even after a CVS update.

The URL is still missing the "/jetspeed" context:


I guess I have the latest version of the *.jsp in security portlet:

<c_rt:set var="requestContext"
<a href='<c:url context="${requestContext.request.contextPath}"

I think (hope) I have fixed your problem with WebLogic.
Please check out the latest version of Jetspeed-2 from cvs and let me
know if you have any more problems.

See issue: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JS2-203.
