Hi Carina,

The Junit sanity test creates and runs a job several times, testing to be sure that crawling
does the right thing each time.  There's a version of the sanity test for both direct java
configuration, and another one using the new LCF API.  So it is expected to take some time
(perhaps up to 2-3 minutes in fact).  How long are you waiting before giving up?

If you are canceling out of the main ant task, it is conceivable that some ant process didn't
finish.  But it is also possible that the massive changes needed to build the jetty-based
quick-start and API have destabilized something - I haven't personally tried tomcat deployment
for a couple of weeks myself.

Can you try the following:

(1) Run the following ant command under "trunk/modules":

ant clean
ant run-tests

Once it starts jetty, wait 10 minutes at least.  If you still wind up killing it, there's
something not right with your build setup we should figure out, so let me know.  If *that*
works, then:

(2) Try running the jetty quick-start version by hand.  The instructions are under the build-deploy
wiki page.  Let me know if that succeeds.  If it does:

(3) Let's look for some error output in the tomcat logs and the LCF log.  There should be
an exception trace somewhere that would give us a clue.

Meanwhile, I'll be sure later today to try a tomcat deployment.  But that will take some time.

Subject: Beginner's question


I'm trying to configure LCF and get it running.
When I access the lcf-crawler-ui on tomcat, I can view every single page, even create connections.
But if I add a new job, after specifying name and connection I only receive an empty screen
(e.g. for the tab Scheduling). The same happens for the example application. There are no
error messages in the log file.

When building the project ant does not completely finish the build but gets stuck at a jUnit
"Started Socket Connector@". I cancelled the task. May this be the mistake? What
can I do to allow ant perform the build sucessfully?

As I'm using LCF with Windows I set the environment variable LCF_HOME. For tomcat I used the
path to the properties.xml. Did I miss anything?

Thanks in advance.
