Automated installation?

Tue Nov 17, 2015 3:39 pm

Hello!

I'm trying to install LogicalDOC Community Edition 7.3 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. When I finish the manual installation (via a console over ssh), the installer asks me if I want to create an automated installation file, and when I agree, it creates an autoInstall.xml.

I'm unable to make automated installation work:

java -jar logicaldoc-installer.jar autoInstall.xml

fails while trying to create a directory called $INSTALL_PATH (literally, dollar capital-i capital n ... etc. -- I double-checked with strace!).

Is automated installation supported? (If not, why does the installer offer it?)

This option comes from LzPack but we do not support it.

As far as I understand, IzPack provides two options: a FinishPanel that asks about writing an automated installation file, and a SimpleFinishPanel that doesn't:
http://izpack.org/documentation/panels.html#finishpanel

The LogicalDoc Community Edition 7.3 installer uses FinishPanel.

May I request that you switch to SimpleFinishPanel in upcoming releases, to avoid user confusion?

Hi mgedmin,
thanks for your suggestion,
in the next release we will check the possibility to activate the automatic installation,
if this will not be possible we will replace the last panel with SimpleFinishPanel :)

By the way,
if you are interested in, the source code of the installer is available

Have you considered switching to GitHub? I'm afraid SourceForge is beyond my pain tolerance.

In fact we had thought, but I don't know if GitHub provides support for SVN, you know?
Or how else offers GitHub to manage versions of source (with an Eclipse plugin)?
