Guide to Install Continuum on Geronimo

Instructions for installing, deploying, configuring Continuum for Apache Geronimo.


Datasource Configuration

Continuum uses two datasources (jdbc/continuum and jdbc/users). You can create one or two databases for them.

Here, we create only one database 'continuum' used by both datasources. Look at Configuring database pools in Geronimo User's Guide.

Deployment Plan

When your datasource is created, before you install Continuum, you must create a Geronimo Deployment Plan like this one (Geronimo 2.0.2):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>




The 'continuum' string used in console.dbpool and <resource-link> is the name of the datasource created in the previous part.

commons-lang 2.2 is required by Continuum and must be installed in the geronimo repository.

org.jaxen. needs to be added as a <filter> in the <hidden-classes> section because of GERONIMO-3894

Install Continuum

To Install Continuum, you'll need the Continuum war and the deployment plan.

Look at Installing and removing applications in Geronimo.

Continuum Configuration

By default, the 'working directory' and the 'build output directory' are stored under the WEB-INF directory. If you want to change them (necessary on Windows due to the path length limitation), you can configure them in the Configuration page.
