Error Installing on JBoss w/HSQLDB

Hello,

I'm trying to install JForum on JBoss. I've unzipped the distirbution into a .war directory under my JBoss deploy directory. Then I bring up the install page. I configure JForum to use HSQLDB and accept the default values. Go through the confirm page and then I get the following error:


Error while trying to configure the database. Please check if parameters like username, password and host are correct and try again.

User not found:


I'd appreciate any pointers.

Thanks,
Ray

Hm, when facing installation problems, I suggest to manually install jforum, as described at http://www.jforum.net/install_no_wizard.htm

I was going to give that a try, but I do not know how to go about running the SQL scripts against HSQLDB.

Also, JBoss comes with HSQLDB, so it might be possible that there is a conflict (or not).

Thanks,
Ray

hmm..
Well, I registered this as a bug, but I don't know when I'll have time to work on it. :roll:
You can always install Tomcat, or try with jboss and mysql, for example.

FYI, I tried to install on Oracle 9iAS and was successful. (After getting past a small XML problem; the built-in parser tries to interpret Windows-style filenames (C:/blah) as URLs with the drive letter as the protocol. Installing xerces fixed that issue.)

JBoss was going to be the development environment for me with 9iAS as the production environment, so this is not a big problem.

Thanks for the help (and for the cool product)

Wow, that's good news. I was aware of this problem, but never installed oracle AS to check this out. So, you just put xerces in the lib directory? or did you changed some code as well?

I know some users whose have been running jforum under jboss, but with mysql. Anyway, that's good the ideal situation works for you.

No code changes necessary. You just put the xerces jars in the lib for the OC4J server and then you need to configure the JVM to use xerces with the standard switches:
