Jsp/java/struts Problems


Recommended Posts

(I moved this post from the customer service forum)




I requested java to be activated a few days ago, and it was/is... the jspTest.jsp page works, and I tried another one (http://roundboxes.he...jspDateTest.jsp) which also works.


Here's the problem -


I created a very basic STRUTS (1.3) application which runs successfully on my local server. I searched everywhere trying to find instructions on how to upload it to my heliohost directories, and came up with some vague descriptions of how to do it... first I used netbeans to generate a .WAR, then I copied the war file into a new directory and unziped it via "jar -xvf loginProject.war", and then uploaded the files into my public directory.


When I navigate to the application, the .JSP pages load, but they don't behave as they should...


The application is supposed to be a simple login form, which I have (allegedly) attached to a mySQL database, and there is a little bit of form validation via jQuery... **none of it works. Clicking the submit button on the page does exactly nothing!


I frankly had expected the thing to blow up in my face and tell me that it couldn't find the database, or throw a bunch of server exceptions or something... anything! But it doesn't do a thing. Nada. Zippo. Zilch.


So, my question is (questions are): do I have to do anything special to get struts to work on heliohost? Is there any way to set things so i can just deploy a .WAR file rather than uploading it's contents individually?


(there are 3 pages associated with this web app: roundboxes.heliohost.org/login.jsp, success.jsp, failure.jsp)

they run on my local server - i have never tried running java/struts on anything other than my own hardware... heliohost was/is an experiment to learn how to deploy this stuff elsewhere. It seems like there is very little information on how to do it though.
