From "Scott T Weaver (JIRA)" <jetspeed-...@portals.apache.org>
Subject [jira] Resolved: (JS2-447) Documentation for using Installer doesn't work, and I can't find any installation procedures that do work.
Date Wed, 14 Dec 2005 18:51:48 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JS2-447?page=all ]
Scott T Weaver resolved JS2-447:

    Resolution: Invalid

It must be your browser converting the extension to .zip (I have seen this happen in IE before)
.  Just change the extension back to ".jar" and follow the instructions.

>      Project: Jetspeed 2
>         Type: Bug
>   Components: Installer
>     Versions: 2.0-FINAL
>  Environment: Windows XP SP2, with Tomcat

>     Priority: Critical

> I am attempting to install Jetspeed-2 using the installer, not building from source.
> The instructions at http://portals.apache.org/jetspeed-2/getting-started-installer.html
seem to have no relationship to the actual software, and I can find no install procedures
that work.
> For example:
> -- The instructions say that I can download  Jetspeed2.0-derby-install.jar.  But the
actual download is a zip file that does not include any jar by that name.   I can find no
> -- If I unpack the downloaded zip file,  I find an installpack.zip.  However, this appears
to be a tomcat directory, not installation tools.  Also, the README and RELEASE-NOTES talk
about JGOODIES, not jetspeed or tomcat., and provide no guidance.
> -- The installpack.zip contains two files called "zipsucks", one of which is in webapps\jetspeed\WEB-INF\deploy,
which interferes with the execution of JetSpeed's war file under Tomcat.
> -- If I unpack the installpack.zip and try to use it as a tomcat installation, startup.bat
fails because it uses my pre-existing CATALINA_HOME (from a tomcat installation already running
on my machine)
> -- If I fix the above problems and startup tomcat, Jetspeed fails at Tomcat startup due
to SQLException: "No suitable driver".  This cascades into a springframework.beans.factory.Bean
CreationException: Error creating bean with name "jetspeedDS'.  Presumably, this is happening
because there is no JDBC connection information to point to the pre-installed database (is
it Derby or Hypersonic?), and I can find no documentation on how to provide this connection
> Is there an intention that it should be possible to run JetSpeed 2 without building it,
or is it expected that everyone will build?
