Hey all,

in trying to get JForum to work on Sun App Server I have come across a few bugs of varying annoyance or incompatibilities with SJSAS.

Base info: I am deploying JForum to a stand alone instance server which means the app must be a war file. I am also running against Oracle.

Great work on what is there thus far but I have lost a little bit of hair getting it to run!!

Notes:
1) when you restart a server instance App Server resyncs files from a central repository. This means that the jforum-custom.conf file gets overwritten with default values (By design according to Sun).

2) the uploads directory that JForum stores attachments in *must* be changed to something like /var/data/jforumAttachments in the SystemGlobal.properties file; otherwise the attachments will be deleted on server instance restart.

3) the hard-coded avatar pathname needs to allow for the same flexibility as the attachments (eg. avatar.store.dir) so they don't get deleted on server instance restart. There are references in UserCommon.java, post_show_user_inc.htm, user_form.htm and user_profile.htm

4) the removal of the DB drivers from the .war package; this is violating the EULA of the drivers and is an extra step in deployment.

Awesome work otherwise!!

E/.
