Installing LC ES 8.0 trial - ReaderExtensions error


Not applicable

I installed LiveCycle ES 8.0 with JBoss service. Everything works fine when I try http://localhost:8080/adminui and http://localhost:8080/workspace, but when I try http://localhost:8080/ReaderExtensions I get an error in my web browser, a null pointer exception:

It's running on Tomcat 5.5, JDK Win XP SP2, Core2Duo, 2GB RAM.

Someone can help me?

Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately, Tomcat is not enough for LiveCycle ES 8.0

Tomcat is only a Web Container, meaning it can provide services only to JSPs and servlets. LiveCycle also has EJBs which need the services of an EJB Container. Therefore, you need a full-fledged J2EE application server such as JBoss 4.0.3SP1, IBM WebSphere AS or Bea WebLogic AS 9.2

Please note, JBoss actually has Tomcat 5.5 as its Web Container implementation.

I've got the same error. Using the turnkey installation with JBoss. Anyone have a workaround for this?

I have the same problem with ReaderExtension but I was installing it

on a WebSphere application server.

I've created one process in which dropping the file to the watch folder,

the form is enabled for usage in Reader.

So, the RE works, but the RE web console is not working..

any idea?

with mozilla I can access to RE console, but with

IE it is not working..

he found the bug, and the right address is:

We have installed LiveCycle Reader Extensions using the turnkey installation with JBoss. I dont't know how to process the watch folder mechanism in Reader Extensions. Could you please help me how to use the built-in Watched Folder mechanism and also could you please provide any other Documentation available for this mechanism
