Subject Notes on getting Cocoon 3.0.0-alpha-2 sample app running
Date Thu, 28 Jan 2010 14:24:27 GMT
Here are some notes I made while trying to get started with the Cocoon 3 
alpha 2 sample apps running under Windows XP using Maven.

Hopefully it might help others like me starting down the C3 road and 
serve as a record of the corrections needed to the current documentation ;-)

The place to go for documentation on running the sample apps is the 
Cocoon 3 download page [1].  The simplest way to get the sample app up 
and runnning is to use Maven to do the heavy lifting.  As the 
documentation mentions under the 'Maven 2 archetypes' heading you have 
to type the following line to create the sample block: -

  mvn org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin:1.0-alpha-7:create


Note: you have to place everything on one line before pasting it into a windows DOS box or
else only the first line will get executed.

This should proceed correctly and a new directory will appear called 'mysample' which you
should change into for the next part.

I tried typing 'mvn jetty:run' to execute the sample app but I kept getting a couple of Maven
dependency errors: -


Never having heard of Jersey[2] before (the new Restful API reference implementation and not
the place or the item of clothing!) I looked it up and noticed the dependencies page[3] which
led me to add the following to the pom.xml file just below the <packaging> tag: -

    <name> Repository for Maven</name>
    <name> Maven 1 Repository (legacy)</name>

After this I could successfully run the sample app... but only after 
looking in the correct URL ;-)  The documentation[1] gives the wrong 
one.  The Jetty server is set up to actually run at http://localhost:8888

Hope this helps.
