Current antville/antclick package out for testing

Hi there, I updated the antville/antclick build environment and put out up-to-date packages: (*nix) (Windows)

Gotta run and cook dinner now, so I'll keep it short: Antclick is an integrated Helma/Antville package. It comes with an integrated web server and SQL database. It should run out of the box although you may have to modify the start script. All you need to run it is Java 1.3 or higher.

This version of Antclick comes with Mckoi as embedded database now, which should be able to scale to a few hundred megs of data (I said should, haven't tried yet). Basically, the only weak spot left now is the embedded web server. I'm currently investigating into what it would take to replace it with Jetty.

Please let me know what you find!

Update: Just to avoid a common misunderstanding, although Antcklick comes preconfigured with the Mckoi database, it is perfectly possible to reconfigure it to run it with other databases (just as it is possible to configure it to run in a servlet container like Tomcat instead of the built-in web server). All you have to do is update the file in the apps/antville directory and add the JDBC-driver for your database to the classpath. Currently, Antville supports MySQL and Oracle out of the box, but there's no reason why it shouldn't be possible to add support for other db products.

Update 2 (July 31): The Mckoi database that was packaged with this Antclick prerelease has a bug that causes trouble with large text items. If you do anything serious with it, please replace the lib/mckoidb.jar file in your installation with this patched version (right click and save-as):

mckoidb (application/octet-stream, 647 KB)

Make sure that you stop and restart Antclick if you update to the patched version!


The Antville Server Fund has been a great success. Thanks to everybody who contributed!
