NEWS after a long time ...

I know,
it has been quite some time, that i've put my last news here on my blog ..

This has been due to several trips .. related to our bpel engine, that kicked me from town to town ..

So.. what's on this time ... It's about ilearning and BPEL in the next steps ..

1) Setting up a secure content server for ilearning .. with apache tomcat ..

At one of my ct's in austria, where content scorm-content needs to reside on different sites, we needed to setup some small version, that can be easily cloned, as has a tight footprint.

Not to much work, forking a small version of iLearning, that contains the EditorDirectoryServlet, into a war file, deployed with context root /ilearn .. and voila a new content server has been created ..

Here are the steps ..
- create a new project - for web usage .. (include a web.xml in WEB-INF dir)
- copy the ilearning.jar to WEB-INF/lib directory, which contains the needed servlet
- copy bc4jmt.jar/bc4jct.jar to WEB-INF/lib directory - for having the correct exceptions
- create a war file, and deploy it to tomcat ..

Note: Since the version 5.5.x tomcat has, per default, disabled the /servlet mapping - which you need to turn on in $CATALINA_HOME/conf/web.xml! You need to uncomment the invoker servlet and the /servlet mapping which reference the servlet.

What you need all this for? ilearning LMS expects a servlet called oracle.ila.contentserver.EditorDirectoryServlet running on a secure contentserver / that has scorm-content deployed .. otherwise it will not work ..
