JAMWiki with H2 database Setup[edit]

Windows XP[edit]

Note that software versions may vary. I'm just specifying the exact setup which worked for me.

  1. Install Java 6 (JRE 6)
  2. Get the Apache Tomcat 6.0.18 installer (
    1. Run the Windows Service Installer
    2. Make a Full Install (and leave all other settings) tomcat1.gif
    3. After successfull installation stop the Tomcat service from the Windows taskbar
  3. Get the JAMWiki 0.6.7 WAR file (
    1. Move the WAR file to C:\Programme\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\webapps\jamwiki-war-0.6.7.war
    2. Start the Tomcat service in order to explode the WAR file; now there's a new directory C:\Programme\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\webapps\jamwiki-war-0.6.7
    3. Stop the Tomcat service again
  4. Get the H2 1.1.107 installer (
    1. Run the Windows Installer
    2. Copy the H2 JAR file from C:\Programme\H2\bin\h2-1.1.107.jar to C:\Programme\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\webapps\jamwiki-war-0.6.7\WEB-INF\lib\h2-1.1.107.jar
    3. Edit the file such that the statement on lines 167/168 becomes
    CREATE UNIQUE INDEX jam_u_wuser_login on jam_wiki_user (login)
    1. Create a directory C:\Programme\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\webapps\jamwiki-war-0.6.7\JAMWiki-Systemdateien
    2. Start the Tomcat service again
  1. Open the Internet Explorer and point it at http://localhost:8080/jamwiki-war-0.6.7
  2. Fill in all entries in the JAMWiki setup form except for the database password jamwiki1.gif
  3. Voilà, you are a JAMWiki on H2 user!
