3 =Apache Geronimo Installation=
4
5 {{info}}
6 * This was written for version **//2.2//**. There is no reason why it wouldn't work on other platforms.
7 * The default username for Geronimo is **//system//** and the default password is **//manager//**.
8 {{/info}}

10 Out of the box you will have issues with Geronimo, but these are not hard to fix. This was the error I got that lead me down the path to writing this deployment guide for Geronimo:
11
12 {{error}}
13 Error 500 org.apache.commons.lang.StringUtils.replaceEach(Ljava/lang/String;[Ljava/lang/String;[Ljava/lang/String;
14 {{/error}}
15
16 == Quick Steps ==
17
18 For the impatient, the steps to get it working are:
19 * Add Apache commons language to the repository
20 * Create a ##geronimo-web.xml## file and add it to your war file
21 * Make your changes as per a normal installation (i.e., to the ##xwiki.cfg##, ##hibernate.cfg.xml##, etc.)
22 The optional steps I did were:
23 * Add a higher version of commons-beanutils to repository
24 * Add a higher version of commons-fileupload to repository
25 * Add a higher version of commons-io to repository
26
27 === Minimum XML Changes ===
28
29 Modify your ##geronimo-web.xml## and add the following library to match how you installed the library into the repository:
30
31 {{code language="xml"}}
32 <dependency>
33 <groupId>apache-commons</groupId>
34 <artifactId>commons-lang</artifactId>
35 <version>2.5</version>
36 <type>jar</type>
37 </dependency>
38 {{/code}}

137 I saw these in the log files and apparently you can just ignore them.

139 == Using a JDBC Datasource ==
140
141 Navigate to Geronimo -> Services -> Database Pools and click the //Using the Geronimo database pool wizard// link.
142
143 === Step 1: Select Name and Database ===
144
145 Name of Database Pool: {{box}}<Pool Name>{{/box}}
146 A name that is different than the name of any other database pools in the server (no spaces in the name please).
147
148 Database Type: {{box}}<Database Version>{{/box}}
149 The type of database the pool will connect to.
150
151 === Step 2: Select Driver, JAR, Parameters ===
152
153 JDBC Driver Class: {{box}}<driver>{{/box}} (e.g. //org.h2.Driver//)
154 Driver JAR: {{box}}<jarfile for the driver>{{/box}} (e.g. //jdbc/h2/1.2.136/jar//)
155 DB User Name: {{box}}<username>{{/box}}
156 DB Password: {{box}}<password>{{/box}}
157 Confirm Password: {{box}}<password>{{/box}}
158
159 === Step 3: Final Pool Configuration ===
160
161 JDBC Connect URL: {{box}}<url>{{/box}} (e.g. //jdbc:h2:tcp:~/~/localhost~/xwiki23//)
162 Make sure the generated URL fits the syntax for your JDBC driver.
163 Driver Status: Loaded Successfully
