Hi All...

I have my tomcat running on port 7070 and i have successfully installed jforum on tomcat's webapps directory.
I was able to access jforum using link http://localhost:7070/jforum/install.jsp to install jforum and afterwards i was able to access the forum main menu with http://localhost:7070/jforum

And then i tried to integrate jforum with my existing project(SimpleProject) in Eclipse but i was not successful.
Im able to access my project webpage by http://localhost:7070/SimpleProject but i am not able to access the jforum page which i have placed in WebContent directory of my project folder(SimpleProject)

I get below error when i access the link http://localhost:7070/SimpleProject/jforum/install.jsp

================================================================
HTTP Status 404 - /SimpleProject/jforum/install/install.page

type Status report

message /SimpleProject/jforum/install/install.page

description The requested resource (/SimpleProject/jforum/install/install.page) is not available.
================================================================


Can someone please help me to fix this issue and have this jforum integrated to my project.


PS: I am still a beginner and still learning about how eclips/tomcat works, so please provide me full steps to fix this issue.


Thank you.,

Welcome to CodeRanch!

I'm not sure what you mean by "integrate with." Do you mean that the jforum jar is in Simple Project? That the jforum java code is in SimpleProject? That SimpleProject extends the JForum code.

You have two choices:
1) Copy/paste the files in.
2) Place the jar inside the project and use the binary.

I still feel like I'm not understanding/answering the question though.

when you are downloading jforum....download jforum src code and extract it..
in the eclipse you import the extracted project and build it....its simple
