——————————————————————————–

Hi,

has anyone tried deploying Alfresco (any version) in WebSphere 6.1? WebSphere6.1 comes with native support of Java 5, but brings some other complications. So far I have discovered:

- clash between JSF implementations provided by Alfresco vs. the implementation supplied in WebSphere distribution. This was mainly because of AlfrescoFacesServlet extends the FacesServlet, which is final in the IBM JSF. This, however, seems to have been fixed in the Alfresco HEAD code, because Alfresco no longer uses the AlfrescoFacesServlet. But there is still a classloading issue outstanding.
- Alfresco restart. Again with the Alfresco HEAD code there seems to be a problem with application restart or redeployment. I think the metadata cannot be re-read due to some java.nio.BufferUnderflowException (don't have details at hand now).


Please let me know.

Regards
