I tried GeoServer 1.2.0 rc2, rc1, 1.1.1... None of them is compatible with Sun Application Server Platform Edition 8 (bundled with J2EE 1.4 SDK). Am I missing anything? Why the J2EE server by Sun is not supported? Or, does GeoServer completely follow J2EE specifications?

Chris Holmes

OS: Win XP, Java version 1.4.1_07 Jetty 4.1.27, Tomcat 4.1.30. Also tested Resin 3.0.6, but I have problems with the Login page looping, never recognizing that you actually logged in, and I've heard reports of it freezing up on the FeatureTypeEditing, which I've never tested myself, since I use Resin rarely. I'm testing with the latest cvs builds.

Jody Garnett

OS: Win 2000, Java 1.4.2_04 with JAI 1.1.2 and image_io, Jetty from the cvs, Resin 3.0.6 is broken although Resin 2.x works. Tomcat 5.0.19 and Tomcat 4.1.30

Swapan Mazumdar

Tomcat 5.0.19 working,
And yeah, tomcat4.1.12 had some major problems. I am not sure what specific module was inconsistent.


does somebody has some experience with solaris and geoserver? i would like to know if geoserver works on solaris???

  • I have heard no reports of it, but don't see any reason it would not work as GeoServer is all Java. Please report back if you test it out. - cholmes

OS: SuSE Linux 9, Java 1.4.2_04 with JAI 1.1.2, Tomcat 4.1.30 - Made some changements, that it runs in top level - not as /geoserver

OS: Win XP, Java 1.5.0 with JAI 1.1.2, JBoss 4.0.1 - working
OS: Win XP, Java 1.4.1 with JAI 1.1.2, Websphere 5.0 - geoserver war deploys and starts but admin page returns ServletExceptions in actionator.jsp, locator.jsp, and menuator.jsp. Already tried changing the quotes as mentioned in the comment. Will investigate further and update as appropriate.

The same problem occurred in Editor.jsp while adding a feature type.

Craig E. Oaks

OS: Win XP, Java 1.5.0 with JAI 1.1.2, Tomcat 5.5.7, PostgreSQL 8.0.1 + PostGIS 1.0.0-RC3 - working
OS: Fedora Core 3, Java 1.5.0 with JAI 1.1.2, Tomcat 5.5.7 - working
Note on WinXP: these files must be included in Tomcat's "common/endorsed" folder: xercesImpl.jar, xml-apis.jar, xalan.jar (see GEOS-292 for details.)

I just downloaded the war file and ran it in an OC4J (Oracle) container. There were some problems with the demonstration jsp pages with constructs like

<bean:message key="<%= array[ index ]+".label" %>"/>

If I change the double quotes around the attribute value to single quotes it works:
<bean:message key='<%= array[ index ]+".label" %>'/>

I do not know whether this jsp compilation problem is specific to OC4J, but anyway, just thought I should report it. The files I edited (to get the first page right) were:

I use j2sdk1.4.2_05 and Oracle Application Server Containers for J2EE 10g (
