Default Cloudscape

On page 41 of Beginning j2EE 1.4 it says I need to test to see if Cloudscape runs by typing in the command
cloudscape -start
This does not work in my Win2k partiton. The server starts fine with domain1 but I cannot get to the cloudscape part.

Can anyone advise?

My java compiler works as I have compiled and run java code and I have set up the enviornment variables.

I'm having the same problem. Cloudscape is missing for me as well. I'm going to contact Wrox support about this.

FOLLOW UP: Wrox is out of business and the "official word" from Wiley is that we are out of luck regarding support:

"Thanks for writing. The former Wrox Press Company was liquidated 60 days
ago and the assets (books) were sold to various companies. Wiley acquired
34 of the over 350 books in the liquidation proceedings. You'll find a
complete list of books now owned by Wiley at
http://www.wrox.com/misc-pages/booklist.shtml

Unfortunately, Wiley does not own your Wrox Press book and has no further
information available. It may have been acquired by A Press at
www.apress.com

Sincerely,
Wiley Product Support"

Apress doesn't have the title Beginning J2EE listed on their site.

Hmmm, no wonder they went bust if they wrote books teaching things that aren't even there. I'm going to see if Sun can help! If I get anywhere I'll post it here for all and sundry.

I wrote to writers of the book about this and he kindly replied in just 2 hrs. Here is the reply:

There is a FAQ from Kevin Mukhar at
http://home.earthlink.net/%7Ekmukhar...2EE/index.html that
deals with this issue. Here is an excerpt from the site:



6/12/03 - I have just learned that the latest version of J2EE, J2EE 1.4
Beta 2, no longer comes with Cloudscape. The email that told me about
this mentioned some dispute between Sun and IBM. After looking at the
download, it appears the latest J2EE comes with PointBase as the
database. In general, you should be able to use PointBase as the
database for any of the examples in the book that need a database.
Specifically though, using PointBase may be easy or hard, depending on
the example, and your Java and JDBC abilities. If you read the beginning
of the JDBC chapter, you will learn that the whole point of JDBC is to
make changing databases as easy as changing the driver and connection
url. So, to use PointBase with the examples in the book, find the
PointBase driver, add it to your classpath, and use the PointBase JDBC
URL format in the book examples. You can find full documentation at
PointBase's web site. Looking at their documentation, here are the
driver and url strings:

Driver string: "com.pointbase.jdbc.jdbcUniversalDriver"

Connection url, PointBase embedded: "jdbc:pointbase:embedded:<db_name>"

Connection url, PointBase embedded, server option:
"jdbc:pointbase:server://<server ip address>/sample"

Connection url, PointBase emdedded, server option:
"jdbc:pointbase:server://<server name>/sample"

At the moment, I am unable to provide more specific help than that,
because I have not had the time to install or test J2EE 1.4 Beta 2.

I guess we have to check that site for problems.

Regards to all

Depmod13 - thanks a bunch for posting that useful bit of info! How nice it was of Kevin to provide his own page for the book. What a bummer that Wrox went out of business. I really liked the format of most of their books. They seemed to really have their act together. These are tough times even when you've got a good and successful product...

I had already planned to just forget about Cloudscape and change the examples to work with one of my favorite databases, MySQL. I figured this would be a good learning exercise anyway.

:)

Thanks for the info. I think I will use MySQL, too. It's pretty easy to set up, and it's pretty powerful. We built an entire e-commerce application based on it once.

I didn't know Wrox had gone out of business. That explains why the book was 30% off at Borders. I still like this book better than the J2EE 1.4 Tutorial on the Sun website even if the exercises require a work-around or two. The book appears to be very well-written and organized so far.
