Subject Roller 4.0 RC9 installation problem on OAS (OC4J)
Date Mon, 12 Nov 2007 21:00:04 GMT

I'm new to Roller and am trying to install roller 4.0 RC9 on Oracle Application Server
(i.e. OC4J) and Oracle database on OEL/RHEL R5 Linux.

I'm using a straight JDBC connection for now - my file is:


In roller.log I'm getting:
INFO  2007-11-12 20:06:45,654 DatabaseProvider:successMessage - SUCCESS: Got parameters. Using
configuration type JDBC_PROPERTIES

setting, substituting default VM locale

I can see that the tables haven't been created by the auto install which presumably is a symptom
of another problem. When I ran the oracle/createdb.sql script manually as the roller user
from sqlplus that worked fine (I dropped the tables again afterwards). Whenever I do http://myserver/roller/
I get a roller message box "Roller has encountered and logged an unexpected exception." (i.e.
from the container).

I saw the change to add the "Roller Weblogger startup INCOMPLETE, user interaction required"
message, just not sure where I go from here...

Any help gratefully received!

PS. I'll contribute to the OAS/OC4J instructions if I manage to get it working ;-)
