OHF Bridge Installation [message #33766] Wed, 03 October 2007 15:03 Go to next message

Hi,

I'm a starter user of OHF.
My first step is install the OHF Bridge, but I’m having difficulties in
doing it.
I follow the installation guide (at
http://www.eclipse.org/ohf/components/bridge/install.php), but in the end
of process the web service is not available
(http://localhost:8080/bridge/services/ohf-bridge?wsdl) (the port is
correctly defined).
For a better overview I explain what I’m doing:
- I have Tomcat 5.5 installed. I stop it and delete the folder Catalina
from .../Tomcat 5.5/work directory;
- I don't know if i got the correct OHF Bridge Installation Package (is it
"org.eclipse.ohf.bridge-install_0.2.0M2-incubation.zip"? There are other
pre-requisites? );
- I download the "org.eclipse.ohf.bridge-install_0.2.0M2-incubation.zip"
and extract the files (obtain 2 folders (conf and webapps) and 2 files
(notice and epl-v10));
- Then, I copy the files from conf folder to .../Tomcat 5.5/conf and the
file bridge.war from webapps to .../Tomcat 5.5/webapps
- Finally I start Tomcat again and test the web service but it aren't
there.

Can you please give me some help?
Thanks in advance,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,

Could you please attach more information. Look for a bridge.log file in
the home directory of Tomcat. If that does not exist, please look in
your Tomcat logs to try to find a stack trace.

Also, please verify you're using Java 1.5.x. That's the only supported
version of Java right now with the OHF Bridge.

Thanks,
-Matt

Hi Matt,

Thanks for the guidelines.
I'm using java 1.5.0_11.
I didn't find any bridge.log file, but there is a logs folder with a
stdout.log file where I found the following message:
(...)
INFO: XML validation disabled
- Unable to find config file. Creating new servlet engine config file:
/WEB-INF/server-config.wsdd
- Unable to find required classes (javax.activation.DataHandler and
javax.mail.internet.MimeMultipart). Attachment support is disabled.
(...)

In the "installation from scratch" (i tried it too) there is a step that
mentions this file (server-config.wsdd) and it doesn't exist on my Tomcat.
"12. Copy the Web service deployment descriptor (server-config.wsdd) from
the [tomcat home]/conf/ directory to the [tomcat
home]/webapps/bridge/WEB-INF/ directory."

Do you have any ideas?

Other problem is:
When I start Apache Tomcat with bridge.war in my Tomcat 5.5/webapps folder,
it creates a folder named bridge (that's expected).
After this, my Tomcat stops and i can't start it again. I have to delete
bridge.war and bridge folder to start it again successfully.

Thanks for help,
Daniel.

Hi Daniel,
Are you installing in Linux or Windows? I've installed it in both and
Windows is easier, but only if you install tomcat in the exact path:
C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5

Otherwise, it doesn't find the bridge.properties file in the conf
directory for some reason. I got around this in linux by adding a -D
switch to my tomcat startup, I don't remember the exact line, but if
you're using linux I'll look it up. Otherwise, if you're using windows,
save yourself some hassle and install tomcat to this exact directory.

As Matt suggested, problems like this require you to send a stack trace
when you try to start tomcat and it fails. Otherwise, no one is going to
know why it failed and won't be able to help you. It should be in the
tomcat logs directory, in a file named "catalina.<today's date>.log".

As for the server-config.wsdd, it's in the webapps/bridge/WEB-INF
directory after that bridge.war file expands. You should be able to stop
and start tomcat as much as you like, it works fine on both my linux and
windows installations without deleting anything.

I haven't tried the install from scratch, as it wasn't necessary.
Unzipping the org.eclipse.ohf.bridge-install_0.2.0M2-incubation.zip worked
for me.

> INFO: XML validation disabled

I have this first line about XML validation disabled, but not the other
two. The attachment support one I doubt is a problem. The "unable to
find config file" one I'm not sure about. I deleted my webapps/bridge
directory to force the war to expand again, and I didn't get that error-
so my guess is that there's some config problem.

The other log file to look for errors in is "tomcat 5.5/bridge/bridge.log"
(not under webapps, directly under the tomcat 5.5 folder).

Just to be totally clear, my first suggestion is to verify that you're
installing in that exact path on Windows. It should be smooth sailing if
that's the case.

thanks,
Jesse

I'm using Windows Vista Business, and I think this is the problem.
I install Tomcat and OHF Bridge on a Windows XP and it works fine (allways
on: C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5).

On Windows Vista I can't find this log files.

Does anyone know anything about using Tomcat on Windows Vista?
I think this is the main question, rigth?

Hi Daniel,
If you can get it working on XP just fine and not on Vista, then it's
clearly some difference on Vista. I'm sorry I can't help you there, I'm
using it on XP and Red Hat Linux. One quick point (with the caveat that
I've never used Vista myself) is that I thought Vista services are
slightly different than XP- have you tried using the zip file installation
of tomcat? If you're using the service installation version, I'd give the
zip version a try. You just expand it in a directory and run the
tomcat5.exe manually- could help, could be a waste of time...

Jesse, thanks for the excellent advice below. In general, I recommend
everyone that is starting to use the Bridge (at least in the first
iteration) to use Tomcat from the command line and not as a Windows
Service. This involves invoking it using the startup script, catalina
script, or invoking the bootstrap JAR directly from the JVM.

When starting Tomcat from the command prompt:

- Open a command prompt
- Change directory to your tomcat home (say C:\tomcat) (this allows the
Bridge to find its configuration files)
- Set your JAVA_HOME or JRE_HOME if needed (path to a Java 5 JVM)
- Execute "bin\catalina.bat run"

This is the safest way to get everything up and running and to verify it
works. After you feel comfortable that the Bridge is working, if you
want to run Tomcat as a Windows Service, it'll run fine from there as well.

Hi Daniel,

Could you please attach more information. Look for a bridge.log file in
the home directory of Tomcat. If that does not exist, please look in
your Tomcat logs to try to find a stack trace.

Also, please verify you're using Java 1.5.x. That's the only supported
version of Java right now with the OHF Bridge.

Thanks,
-Matt

Hi Matt,

Thanks for the guidelines.
I'm using java 1.5.0_11.
I didn't find any bridge.log file, but there is a logs folder with a
stdout.log file where I found the following message:
(...)
INFO: XML validation disabled
- Unable to find config file. Creating new servlet engine config file:
/WEB-INF/server-config.wsdd
- Unable to find required classes (javax.activation.DataHandler and
javax.mail.internet.MimeMultipart). Attachment support is disabled.
(...)

In the "installation from scratch" (i tried it too) there is a step that
mentions this file (server-config.wsdd) and it doesn't exist on my Tomcat.
"12. Copy the Web service deployment descriptor (server-config.wsdd) from
the [tomcat home]/conf/ directory to the [tomcat
home]/webapps/bridge/WEB-INF/ directory."

Do you have any ideas?

Other problem is:
When I start Apache Tomcat with bridge.war in my Tomcat 5.5/webapps folder,
it creates a folder named bridge (that's expected).
After this, my Tomcat stops and i can't start it again. I have to delete
bridge.war and bridge folder to start it again successfully.

Thanks for help,
Daniel.

Hi Daniel,
Are you installing in Linux or Windows? I've installed it in both and
Windows is easier, but only if you install tomcat in the exact path:
C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5

Otherwise, it doesn't find the bridge.properties file in the conf
directory for some reason. I got around this in linux by adding a -D
switch to my tomcat startup, I don't remember the exact line, but if
you're using linux I'll look it up. Otherwise, if you're using windows,
save yourself some hassle and install tomcat to this exact directory.

> After this, my Tomcat stops and i can't start it again. I have to delete

As Matt suggested, problems like this require you to send a stack trace
when you try to start tomcat and it fails. Otherwise, no one is going to
know why it failed and won't be able to help you. It should be in the
tomcat logs directory, in a file named "catalina.<today's date>.log".

As for the server-config.wsdd, it's in the webapps/bridge/WEB-INF
directory after that bridge.war file expands. You should be able to stop
and start tomcat as much as you like, it works fine on both my linux and
windows installations without deleting anything.

I haven't tried the install from scratch, as it wasn't necessary.
Unzipping the org.eclipse.ohf.bridge-install_0.2.0M2-incubation.zip worked
for me.

> INFO: XML validation disabled
> - Unable to find config file. Creating new servlet engine config file:
> /WEB-INF/server-config.wsdd
> - Unable to find required classes (javax.activation.DataHandler and

I have this first line about XML validation disabled, but not the other
two. The attachment support one I doubt is a problem. The "unable to
find config file" one I'm not sure about. I deleted my webapps/bridge
directory to force the war to expand again, and I didn't get that error-
so my guess is that there's some config problem.

The other log file to look for errors in is "tomcat 5.5/bridge/bridge.log"
(not under webapps, directly under the tomcat 5.5 folder).

Just to be totally clear, my first suggestion is to verify that you're
installing in that exact path on Windows. It should be smooth sailing if
that's the case.

thanks,
Jesse

I'm using Windows Vista Business, and I think this is the problem.
I install Tomcat and OHF Bridge on a Windows XP and it works fine (allways
on: C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5).

On Windows Vista I can't find this log files.

Does anyone know anything about using Tomcat on Windows Vista?
I think this is the main question, rigth?

Hi Daniel,
If you can get it working on XP just fine and not on Vista, then it's
clearly some difference on Vista. I'm sorry I can't help you there, I'm
using it on XP and Red Hat Linux. One quick point (with the caveat that
I've never used Vista myself) is that I thought Vista services are
slightly different than XP- have you tried using the zip file installation
of tomcat? If you're using the service installation version, I'd give the
zip version a try. You just expand it in a directory and run the
tomcat5.exe manually- could help, could be a waste of time...

Jesse, thanks for the excellent advice below. In general, I recommend
everyone that is starting to use the Bridge (at least in the first
iteration) to use Tomcat from the command line and not as a Windows
Service. This involves invoking it using the startup script, catalina
script, or invoking the bootstrap JAR directly from the JVM.

When starting Tomcat from the command prompt:

- Open a command prompt
- Change directory to your tomcat home (say C:\tomcat) (this allows the
Bridge to find its configuration files)
- Set your JAVA_HOME or JRE_HOME if needed (path to a Java 5 JVM)
- Execute "bin\catalina.bat run"

This is the safest way to get everything up and running and to verify it
works. After you feel comfortable that the Bridge is working, if you
want to run Tomcat as a Windows Service, it'll run fine from there as well.

Thanks all!
-Matt
