thanks for the feedback. I've tested the module on Windows with a fresh
OpenCms 6.0.2 Installation, without any major issue.
The preconditios are:
1. Install OpenCms a opencms.war (and not ROOT.war) under webapps.
2. Select opencms as DB-Name during the installation of opencms.
3. control mvncore.xml for the following entries
use first root as opencmsuser with appropriate password, also:
(I guess your problem is here!)
4. the mysql-connector-java-3.0.15-ga-bin.jar must be under
at least it works for me, if you are using MySQL 4.1 on windows,
download the latest mysql jdbc driver (I think
5. Touch your module and publish all files.
6. restart tomcat
If this doesn't help, please provide the follwing infos:
your jdbc driver
trace log (opencms.log and catalina.out)
does your opencms installation work properly?
Looking to hear from you.

Subject: AW: [opencms-dev] Forum Module (mvnForum) for OpenCms 6.x
first of all thanks for the module, althought it does not work here
But the reason why is just peanuts (almost for sure ... ;-))
Tried to install it with ocms 6.02 according to your description. But it
does not work because the mysql jdbc driver could not be found ... (as
far as I understand the error message further down).
In my installation, there is an actual jdbc-driver under
"%catalina_home%\common\lib" (3.1.11) additionally to the version which
comes with opencms in the WEB-INF\lib directory (3.0.15-ga-bin). As far
as I understand the one under the common directory should be found (and
should be usable) by all deployed webapps. Additionally the one in the
opencms tree should be used first... So I do not get what's the reason
How the modul is "looking up" the driver? Is it possible (or perhaps a
must) to use the tomcat connection pool ???
If so, what exactly do I have to include in the mvncore.xml file?
As you can see, these are the questions of a non programmer ...
Hopefully interesting to otherones too... ;-)
regards and tia for your answer!

You should NOT change the DATABASE_TYPE below
By default, DATABASE_TYPE = 0
NOTE: If your database/driver doesnt support scrollable
(such as some version of Interbase/Firebird), set
DATABASE_TYPE = 2
Set the below options if you want to use default connection
This is applied if you set USE_DATASOURCE = false
MINUTES_BETWEEN_REFRESH is the minutes between built-in
Connection Pool refreshment
Some time your database server is set connection timeout
too low, such as
5 minutes, that cause the connection auto disconnected.
In this case you should
set MINUTES_BETWEEN_REFRESH lower than the server
connection timeout value
NOTE: These values can be obtained from the header of the
sql script for your database
NOTE: For compatible with future release of mvnForum, we highly
recommend that use config your database/driver to use
unicode utf8 encoding
Set the Data source name if you want to use Servlet Container
This is applied if you set USE_DATASOURCE = true
