Hi all

Am pretty much new to JForum and i want to develop a discussion forum for my website and am thinking of using JForum for the same. I dont have much information on how to configure/deploy Jforum for my website.

It would be graet if someone could help me out with few of my queries:

1. How do i link JForum with my website?
2. I am using JBoss to host my Portal/website, how to i deploy Jforum in JBoss, do i deploy it as a WAR ?

Hi,

i work with JBoss and it�s pretty simple to get your jforum run on your App. Server. Just copy your unziped jforum installation in a "forumname.war" folder. Then copy this folder into your deploy directory.

"sourcedrive"\jboss-4.0.1\server\default\deploy for example

the whole path looks like this :

"sourcedrive"\jboss-4.0.1\server\default\deploy\forumname.war

in a few seconds your JBoss see the new application and deploy�s it.

Hi

Thanks a lot for the information. Actually, i came to know about JForum only today and amazed by the work.

i understand that i need to do some DB configuration before i deploy this as a webapp in JBoss. Please let me know if i can use the inbuilt DB HSQLDB for my application and the configuration settings for the same.


Congrats to who ever is involved in the development. This is awesome work.

Hi,

yes you have to choose a DB first. I�m not sure if you can use the internal DB of JBoss, so i haven�t tried it right now. But you can use the MySQL DB instead.
You can download it at http://www.mysql.de/ for e.g. just follow the steps in the installerguide of MySQL.

HI JunkzTheGobliz,

I created directory myforum.war and copied all the contets of directory JForum-2.1.6 under myforum.war directory. But I got following error -- org.jboss.ws.WSException: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: net.jforum.InstallServlet --

But when I looked at the classes folder under META-INF it does have the net.jforum.InstallServlet directory.

Please advice on how I can get this up and running,

Here is a description of my working jboss deployment:

deploy/
deploy/jforum.ear
deploy/jforum.ear/META-INF
deploy/jforum.ear/META-INF/application.xml (only redefine jforum root)
deploy/jforum.ear/jforum.war
deploy/jforum.ear/jforum.war/images
deploy/jforum.ear/jforum.war/templates
deploy/jforum.ear/jforum.war/upgrade
deploy/jforum.ear/jforum.war/upload
deploy/jforum.ear/jforum.war/WEB-INF
deploy/jforum.ear/jforum.war/index.htm


Sranka, the net/jforum/installservlet directory you are searching for must be under web-inf/classes.
Deploying on jboss i noticed that some doployment issues are related to duplicated libs (jar) in web-inf/lib (some default libraries are already present in lib directory of you jboss server). Useless for sranka problem but maybe an useful tip for others.
