Installing Blojsom on OracleAS 10g (10.1.3)

I am using internally Blojsom for blogging about the product I am taking care of: OC4J and especially the Web Services stack. In this post I am quickly documenting, as the title says, how to install Blojsom on OracleAS 10g.

The first thing to do is to download the product itself, just download the Blojsom quickstart from sourceforge.

Since, Blojsom is distributed as a WAR file you have nothing special to do, just deploy it. Anyway I have created a viewlet  that shows step by step deployment using Oracle Enterprise Manager.

So the application link will be: http://localhost:8888/blojsom/

Note: if you want to use the command line utility (admin.jar) or the Ant deployment task, you should package the Web archive in an EAR file.

3-Update the home page
The easiest way will be to just change the index.html page to redirect to the default blog. The index.html page to be modified is in:

  • $ORACLE_HOME/j2ee/home/application/blojsom/blojsomXXXX/index.html
where blojsomXXXX is the name of the Web application generated during deployment.

4- Start blogging...

This is it...
