Hi

I'm very new to all this servlet stuff only ever really using an HTTP server and HTML, Javascript etc. I'd like to try JFORUM, but all the installation instructions assume you know how to register the application with the servlet container. Can anyone tell me, or point me in the right direction on how this is done?

Thanks

Hi

If you are using Tomcat this is what you need to do;

Unzip the JForum zip to a known place.

In the Tomcat manager; http://localhost/manager/status click on 'List Applications' lnk. At the bottom of the page is a 'WAR or Directory URL field. Paste in the location where you unzipped JForum.

In the Context Path use /forum

Then press Deploy. JForum should then be added to the list of applications.

The above is assuming you have installed Tomcat correctly. I recommend the O'Reilly Tomcat Definitive Guide if you need to setup tomcat; www://www.ora.com.

Hope this helps

Gary

I'm actually using Oracle's Application Server but I'm toying with the idea of running Tomcat on the same server, but with Tomcat I've only ever deployed WAR files and Oracle's iAS also talks about deploying WAR or EAR files - but I thought if I knew how to deploy with Tomcat then I might be able to figure out how to deploy with Oracle

Hi

Tomcat is a good place to start. I started with Tomcat then progressed to Sun's Application Server.

Tomcat is perfect for JForum - straight forward to setup and get running. And easy to maintain.

You will see that WAR files can be deployed, with Tomcat, easily enough.
