Notes on Sakai

Here are some working notes on getting all the parts running with Sakai.

First, dav realm wasn’t found in the server path. So I added server/lib/*jar to the common path in the catalina.properties file. I’ll post a complete listing of that when everything is working. Doing so got rid of the dav* loading errors.

Second, jsf/ myfaces stuff is failing because it is missing the commons-el dependency. According to the Tomahawk project, it requires commons-el to compile and run. That *should* be in the maven pom, but apparently it isn’t. So I looked in Maven2 repository, and surenough it is tagged as compile only in the tomahawk pom.xml:

<dependency>
      <groupId>commons-el</groupId>
      <artifactId>commons-el</artifactId>
      <version>1.0</version>
     <scope>compile</scope>
</dependency>

Third, I also needed to drop in commons-codec jar in /usr/share/tomcat-6/lib/. That fixed some problems with calendar looking for Base64 and not finding it. Too lazy to hunt down that pom.xml mistake at the moment. Maybe later.

With those, I still have problems loading samigo, and

With those fixes, I’m getting close. I still have problems loading samigo, sakai-poll-tool.

Samigo seems to have a problem with its configuration.

The poll tool has a stranger problem with this as the output:


ERROR main org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoader - Context initialization failed org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'scopeAlterationWrapperProxy' defined in class path resource [conf/rsf-config.xml]: Cannot create inner bean 'RSACBridgeProxy$child#8a7d8b0' while setting bean property 'value'; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'RSACBridgeProxy$child#8a7d8b0': FactoryBean threw exception on object creation; nested exception is null
org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'RSACBridgeProxy$child#8a7d8b0': FactoryBean threw exception on object creation; nested exception is null

at least, I think that is the correct bug in the logs. More tonight.
