Very glad you finally got it running!

I have no problem running Roller 4.0 using JDK 1.6 with Tomcat 5.0.? but 
I'm rebuilding Roller from the source.
Tomcat has Xerces-J 2.6.2 (xercesImpl.jar) in its common/endorsed and 
that doesn't seem to cause any worry.
I haven't upgraded any other Roller JAR aside from the Spring ones since 
I'm happily experimenting with that.

On a WAS related topic, I'm curious to know if someone ever tried Roller 
on Websphere 6.1 - which is J2EE 1.4.
I've noticed that by default Websphere 6.1 won't allow JNDI lookups from 
a Thread that is not created by WAS itself, so I'm not sure of what's 
going to happen with the asynchronous processes in Roller if using the 
JNDI datasource and how WAS handles javax.concurrency.* used by Roller.

Any light from anyone on the matter?


I have succesfully deployed ROLLER 3.1.1 with WAS 6.1, JDK 5.0, DERBY 10.1,
but failed to deploy the same WAR to WAS 6.0.15, JDK 1.4 an get this crazzy
Can anyone help or give me a hint, how to work around this problem.
In WAS i used the jndi-name:jdbc/rollerdb as Derby embedded non-XA  JDBC

I tried to changed the hibernate.cfg.xml, but got <init> Error
