I'm doing the same thing here. Same error.
I expected to see a .war file in the download.
Think I may write a quick build script to package it into a *.war or *.ear so appservers can deploy. If I do I'll post here
To anyone wanting to deploy to JBoss... (and who knows ant ;o)
This is a simple build script that will package and deploy to JBoss (or create a war suitable to deploy to a J2EEservlet container). Download the JForums, extract it to a folder, create a build.xml in the root with the following in it and modify the jboss.deploy.dir to point to your JBoss installation. Run it et voila.
(I think they distribute this incorrectly - they should have a source distribution and a bin distribution not a jumble of both - just my humblke opinion)
Fair point (but it does come from the Jboss App Server code repository and pedantically speaking isn't a lib if in source format). But that's just a stupid discussion - your code is v nice to work with! Thanks [originally posted on jforum.net by Anonymous]
