XPlanner setup

I like XPlanner, but I am also very suspicious on beta’s being frozen for years (ok, GMail being a nice exception :)). Anyway, today I was happily changing XPlanner configuration to get around a known bug in XPlanner, which fortunately didn’t cost too much time to find solution for. XPlanner on Tomcat 5.5 + Java-6 on Ubuntu 8.04 apparently result in an exception during startup. The following explanation (thanks Alex!) gives a quick fix.

  1. in /xplanner/WEB-INF/classes/sbring-beans.xml
  2. for Find the bean id="metaRepository"
  3. replace
    <map>......</map>
    with

    <property name="repositories">
    <bean class="java.util.HashMap">
    <constructor-arg>
    <map>.....</map>
    </constructor-arg>
    </bean>
    </property>

Arrgggh, I feel I am hacking too much just to get get things working while I already expect them to work out of a box. Is this the way all admins feel?..

  1. it still has issues for me. After you do this restart Apache Tomcat and then it will work. Or at least it did for me but with a footer error.
