Subject [jira] Resolved: (JS2-1189) Jetspeed installer does not seed database when selecting "Initialize Jetspeed Portal Database"
Date Sat, 24 Apr 2010 15:27:50 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JS2-1189?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Randy Watler resolved JS2-1189.

    Resolution: Not A Problem

The initialize database installer option is not intended to seed the database. The goal of
this option is to prepare the target database to import previously exported seed data. The
intent was to use these data manipulation installer operations like this:

1. Export the portal configuration using either the administrative portlets or the installer's
export operation.
2. Initialize the target database using the installer's initialize database operation.
3. Import the exported portal configuration using the installer.

While your workaround is fine for a default configuration, these options are primarily for
ETL migration of installed portals with heavily customized/extended configurations. Using
the default seed data is often not appropriate in these cases.

See http://portals.apache.org/jetspeed-2/guide-etl-migration.html for more information.

> Database is seeded correctly when using the "Install Jetspeed Portal" option but the
"initialize jetspeed portal database" option did work as expected. It did drop and recreate
the database but the seed script does not appear to have been run. I believe it has to do
with the new demo/minimal and jetui/classic options. I am using Oracle 11g database (ojdbc6-
for the driver). As a work around I have been running the installer with the "Install Jetspeed
Portal" option and configuring the oracle connection there. Once the installer finishes i
just blow away the installation directory.
