  1. Hi all,

    I have some trouble compiling joget source code...

    I'm trying to log against an external database and it looks like I would need to implement a Directory manager to do so.

    I tried to, following the tuto but I can't manage to make it work...

    I have a working version of joget workflow, JDK6, mySQL5 and I installed maven and the svn client (which I'm not sure it is a client, I couldn't find where to execute the svn checkout command).

    By the way, I unziped the attached on my joget installation directory and try to deploy it with the ant command but I get a few warnings and errors...

    Here is part of the error log I get :

    C:\Joget-v2>apache-ant-1.7.1\bin\ant -f setup-maven.xml
    Buildfile: setup-maven.xml

         [exec] [INFO] Scanning for projects...

    ugin:2.5 or one of its dependencies could not be resolved: Failed to read artifa
    ct descriptor for org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-deploy-plugin:jar:2.5Downloadin

    what is this warning I get ? (has anyone ever got it ?)

    I'm not shure I understood the installation process... What is the normal way to implement custom plugins in joget ?



    PS : I'm a bit lost in here, I've been trying a few different tutos on ways to log against an extern table without success... (any help would be more than welcome :) )

    1. get the same error as you do. Wondering what's your finding on this?

      1. Hey Chong,

        What version of Maven are you running on?

        1. i am using Maven 3.0.4

          1. Hi Chong,

            Please try again using Apache Maven 2.2.1. It should work.

            Good luck!

            1. It's work now. Thank you very much. :>

  2. When executing:

    mvn install

    I get the following in my cmd window:

    Cannot execute mojo: resources. It requires a project with an existing pom.xml, but the build is not using one.

    Any help?

    1. Hey Ahmed,

      Be sure that you are pointing to the folder "wflow-app" first before running the command. Hope this helps.

      And just in case that if you are asking this question in respect of the version 3, then you need to post in the Discussion Forums.
