Roller on Geronimo

Geronimo Homepage Jeff has posted a nice tutorial showing how to run Roller on Geronimo. Note that he's using a HEAD build of Geronimo, so you might have to build Geronimo yourself or wait for the next release. I've heard rumors the next release will ship with a Web-only version (i.e. Tomcat and JMS), so that might be a good fit for Roller. As for pre-compiling JSPs, that's on my to do list.

There's been a few "how to run Roller (or AppFuse)" on X server lately. IMO, the best howto is no howto - it just works. I recently tried AppFuse 1.9 on JOnAS and it ran w/o any changes. Since it uses a Spring-managed connection pool and doesn't require any server configuration, this is how things should work. I've had similar results with AppFuse on Jetty and JBoss (and Tomcat of course).

There's already web+jms and minimal tomcat assemblies available in Geronimo HEAD here:

Is pre-compiling JSP really worth it? Assuming you are using JSTL/EL and not got carried away with include directive the runtime seems more expensive so with faster hardware the compilation seems less significant.

Here's an interesting article on JSP and precompilation.
