This is going to be a long one because I'm looking for help [bold]and[/bold] I want to document my problems for whatever good it might do in showing Allaire what we're going through. First some facts: Running NT Workstation 4.0 Netscape 4.7, no proxy server DSL-connected CLASSPATH=.;d:\java;d:\java\other classes;d:\java\other classes\JavaRanchCommon.zip;d:\j2sdkee1.2.1\lib\j2ee.jar;d:\java\jaxp.jar;d:\java\parser.jar As you can see, all my stuff is installed on my much larger D: drive -- C: is full. The first time I installed JRun, I took all the defaults EXCEPT I changed c: to d:, and I unchecked the box for starting JRun service at startup. Before I could even get signed on to admin server, both servers abended. I restarted admin and was able to bring it up, but couldn't alter port for default server -- admin server wouldn't stay up long enough. I decided to take the old "do it over" approach, and un-installed JRun. Six installs later I just seemed to be in a hole, no success. Then it dawned on me to look at the Allaire directory AFTER un-install, and lo and behold, everything was still there! Nothing deleted by un-install. I deleted the whole folder and re-installed, and voila! Everything seemed to work as follows: - changed default server port from 8100 to 80, rebooted server, OK and stayed open. - directed browser to http://localhost/demo and played with demo servlets. - directed browser to http://localhost and got a view of d:\java contents. - created index.html file in d:\java that said "loaded index.html at /Java" and pointed browser to that file - text appeared. Then: I created TestServlet.java, compiled it to TestServlet.class in d:\java\WEB-INF\classes, and tried to access http://localhost/servlet/TestServlet and got the following:
So, basically, I can run all the little demo servlets, but can't seem to run any that I create myself. I'm getting pretty good at the default installation, though. So far I'm at 5 hours invested and still not quite there. Any ideas?
You might want to try renaming JavaRanchCommon.zip to JavaRanchCommon.jar Also - are you sure you need these in your classpath? d:\j2sdkee1.2.1\lib\j2ee.jar;d:\java\jaxp.jar;d:\java\parser.jar Doesn't JRun have its own J2ee and xml libraries? Bill
