Subject RE: Struts installation notes
Date Mon, 29 Jan 2001 18:29:33 GMT

Hi Ted,

I would like to submit installation notes for Weblogic 5.1, however I have
not installed on Weblogic 6  yet (which was released this month). I will go
ahead and write the notes for version 5.1 this evening (if anyone else has
already submitted, then please let me know). I will post it to struts-dev
tomorrow and perhaps someone could add to this specifics for WL6?

Threads like these are usually posted on the Developer's list, but
since this definately something anyone using Struts could help with,
I'm cross-posting it here.

Following are updated installation notes that Martin Coper and Colin
Sampaleanu have contributed for installing Struts under Resin
stand-alone. Adding these types of notes for other platforms is one of
the remaining documentation challenges for the 1.0 release. 

Right now, we have notes for Tomcat 3.x, Orion, and (now) Resin. If
anyone can submit something in this format for their own platform, it
would be very much appreciated. Ideally, someone else using that
platform should volunteer to test any new notes (preferablly starting
with a clean install), and confirm that everything works "as

We'll also be moving these notes from the install text file, and
merging it with the installation.html so that everything is together.


* In the steps below, $RESIN_HOME refers to the directory in which you
  have installed Resin, and $STRUTS_HOME is the directory in which you
  unpacked the Struts binary distribution.
* These instructions have been tested with the default resin.conf
  in the 1.2.2 release (16-Jan-2001).

* Copy the Struts applications (*.war) from $STRUTS_HOME/webapps to
  $RESIN_HOME/webapps directory.

* Restart Resin if it is already running.

* You should now be able to access the Struts applications (assuming
you are
  using Resin's default port number of 8080) at, for example:


* When developing your own applications, you can create a new folder
  $RESIN_HOME/doc and modify the file "$RESIN_HOME/conf/resin.conf" to 
  recognize your application, for example:

    <web-app id='/struts-myapp' />

  Resin will then read your application's configuration from
