Hi!

I'm trying to deploy JForum on JBoss AS 5 without success, I've receive some exceptions. There is any experience about deploying in JBoss?

Regards!

You need to do the following for JForum-2.3.2.war to be successfully deployed on JBoss AS 5.0
Here I use jboss-5.0.1.GA as an example.
1.Create a new directory jforum.war under C:\jboss-5.0.1.GA\server\default\deploy
2.Unpack the jforum-2.3.2.war into C:\jboss-5.0.1.GA\server\default\deploy\jforum.war(You can use 7-Zip or other unzip tool)
3.Modify jforum.war\WEB-INF\web.xml
3.1 Remove <distributable/>
3.2 Remove DataSource jdbc/JForumDB
<resource-ref>

<description>DB Connection</description>
<res-ref-name>jdbc/JForumDB</res-ref-name>
<res-type>javax.sql.DataSource</res-type>
<res-auth>Container</res-auth>
</resource-ref>

The rest of web.xml should look like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<web-app id="JForum" version="2.4"
xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee"

There are some version conflicts of the jboss-xxx.jar which JForum used between different JBoss AS versions.
Solution: Just remove the three jboss-xxx.jar jar files under jforum.war/WEB-INF/lib:
For JForum 2.3.4:
jboss-common-core-2.2.19.GA.jar

jboss-logging-spi-2.1.2.GA.jar
jboss-transaction-api-1.0.1.GA.jar

And restart JBoss, everything will be fine.

Please make sure that you can start JBoss normally before deploy JForum 2.3.4.
I see some error message about JBoss itself:
Caused by: java.io.FileNotFoundException: E:\Software_path\jboss\server\default\deploy\jbossweb.sar\server.xml (The system cannot find the path specified)

OK, please follow my steps:
1. Download jforum-2.3.4.war
2. Unpack jforum-2.3.4.war into jforum.war directory under D:\jboss-6.0.0.Final\server\default\deploy
3. Go to D:\jboss-6.0.0.Final\server\default\deploy\jforum.war\WEB-INF\lib, and delete the three jboss-*.jar
4. Open a cmd prompt
5. Change directory to D:\jboss-6.0.0.Final\bin
6. Execute run.bat
7. Wait for JBoss to load each war and show the message:
21:16:02,167 INFO [org.jboss.bootstrap.impl.base.server.AbstractServer] JBossAS
[6.0.0.Final "Neo"] Started in 3m:40s:877ms

8. Open a browser, and visit http://localhost:8080/jforum/

PS. I'm using JDK 6.0 Update 35 on Windows 7 32-bit.
