jForum and JBoss 4.0.2

Hello Everyone,

I'm a bit new to J2EE/Java Web Tier applications, but I am learning rapidly.

I've created a few applications for use within my company's Intranet and would like to add JForums for certain groups to discuss various products and such.

At this time it is not important that I integrate it with the current SSO. JForums as a single standalone application would be satisfactory for now.

I am using the following environment:

1. MyEclipse 4.0M2 for Eclipse 3.1
2. JBoss 4.0.2 (default config)
3. SQLServer 2000
4. jTDS JDBC connector

Has anyone used a similar environment and gotton JForums to work?

I think many of the issues I am having are due to a lack of understanding as to how to install this application.

I've tried using the install docs, but the areas of interest were a little sparse.

If I could get some clarification and assistance on getting this to work with JBoss 4.0.2 and said environment, I would gladly document the process and contribute it back to the JForum community.

Thanks,
John

Well, the only problem is sql server, since support for it is very imcomplete.

I have tested JForum with JBoss 4.x and it worked in the defualt configuration.

Besides the sqlserver thing, are you having any other kind of problem?

Hi Rafael,

Sorry for the delay in my response. I was out of town on business.

Since using SQL Server sounds like its a work in progress, I'll simply use a MySQL database until such time that SQL Server support is complete. Then hopefully, migrating to SQL Server will be mostly painless. ;-)

Thanks for your help.

Hi Rafael,

With regards to using jForum with JBoss 4.0.2, was there any special setup required? Is there a document that you can point me to that documents these differences or does the standard install process apply here?

Thanks,
John

Hi Rafael,

I've been successful in using jForum on my development machine. I've even themed it to taste.

My DEV machine specs are

1. Windows XP Pro SP2
2. MySQL 4.1.12a (Win 32)
3. JBoss 4.0.2
4. JDK 1.5.0_03

However, when I attempt to install on my production server I get the following error:



The environment on the production server is:

1. Linux Fedora Core 3 (Kept up to date)
2. MySQL 4.1.7
3. JBoss 4.0.0
4. JDK 1.4.2_06-b03

Unfortunately I am not currently in a position to upgrade the production machine at this point as we have many users using it.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
John

Let me clarify a bit.

I get the error message AFTER I fill out the initial wizard screen.

Thanks,
John

The problem is not related to JBoss itself, but to some imcompatibility between commons-fileupload. You have version 1.0, and JForum comes with version 1.1-dev.

The only way to solve this problem is to get version 2.1.5 from CVS (if you want to get the forum up and running right now)

Any progress on this one yet? I am currently installing 2.1.4 on our production JBoss system (4.0.1sp1) and having this exact problem.

Is the only way to fix it still by upgrading to the unstable CVS version? If so, how well-tested is it at this point?

Thanks for the help...

A quick note: I have upgraded our production system to use JBoss 4.0.2. So far I am no longer receiving this error message. I did a manual install of JForum, so I don't know if that makes any difference.

I'll post back if I encounter further problems.
