Installing Blojsom on OracleAS 10g (10.1.3)

| Comments

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.

1-Download

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

2-Deploy

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…
