Creator 2 Applications @ Oracle OC4J 10g – A new Episode

By | February 16, 2006

After I finished the first deployment to Oracles Application Server a coworker asked me about how to configure Data Sources in that setup. So finally yesterday evening I booted my second laptop up into SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 SP3 to start looking at that. The first problems I encountered were “How did you start… Read More »

Joel Brown's Blog

By | February 15, 2006

Joel left the Creator team and Sun:-( I wish him all the best in his new area. His blog entries regarding the database side of Creator are still useful. But the link to his blog was removed from the Creator lists. So I hope this will serve as a anchor for now. Good luck, Joel.—… Read More »

Creator 2 Portlets in the JBoss Portal

By | February 13, 2006

OK, after I found the solution for the JSF API classes (See the entry below), I hoped to get a Creator 2 Portlet project deployed to the JBoss Portal as well. It worked;-) It was just a matter of removing the WEB-INF/lib/jsf-api.jar and adding all the needed configuration WEB-INF/jboss-*.xml files. Then just deploy the war… Read More »

Creator 2 Apps @ JBoss + Portal – One Step at a time

I found the solution for my problem from last Friday. I simply had to remove the JSF API classes (WEB-INF/lib/jsf-api.jar) out of the war file. Then that application will work in a JBoss + JBoss Portal bundle. Apparently, the Portal adds those javax.faces.* packages somewhere very global? Next step, try a Creator Portlet on the… Read More »

                                              I played with Creator 2 applications on JBoss. So far I was partially successful. See the JBoss wiki for more information. The good news is that it seems to work just fine as long as you don’t have any other applications which want to use the bundled… Read More »

Creator 2 Applications and Glassfish;-)

By | February 9, 2006

It simply works. I like that;-) In Creator export your application as a *.war file for a J2EE 1.4 compliant container. Download Glassfish (I used build 9.0-b32f) and get it up and running. Bring up the admin console and deploy your war file as every other war file. Point your browser at the URL and… Read More »

Creator 2 @ Gentoo Linux ;-)

By | February 9, 2006

First the standard disclaimer:  That’s not officially supported but it’s just Java, right;-) This came up on our Creator Forum. People tried to install Creator 2 on Gentoo Linux and that did not work so well. I’m using  Linux since somewhen  in 1993 /1994. I used to copy stacks of floppies for the installations. So… Read More »
