    Hello. I am new to Openppm and greatly want to try it out. After following and installation guide as best i can, i always get a tomcat servlet error when i point my browser to localhost:8080/openppm
    I also noted that tomcat7 cannot start when setenv is executed.
    Could anyone offer some assistance as to how to get Openppm functional in Ubuntu 14.10, MySQL and Tomcat7?

    Hi Ronald,

    can you post the content of the setenv file and the error?

    Hi Joan,
    The contents of my setenv file as below:

    set JAVA_OPTS=%JAVA_OPTS% -Dfile.encoding=UTF8”%CATALINA_HOME%/conf/jaas.config” -Xmx1024m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m -server

    but when i put this file in the /usr/share/tomcat/bin folder, tomcat cannot start.

    so i edited the tomcat7 file found in /etc/default/ to include the following:

    JAVA_OPTS=”-Djava.awt.headless=true -Dfile.encoding=UTF8“/var/lib/tomcat7/conf/jaas.config” -Xmx1024m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m -server”

    but when i try to access the installation on :8080/openppm i get the following error

    type Exception report

    message Servlet execution threw an exception

    description The server encountered an internal error that prevented it from fulfilling this request.


    javax.servlet.ServletException: Servlet execution threw an exception
    root cause

    java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Could not initialize class es.sm2.openppm.utils.hibernate.SessionFactoryUtil
    note The full stack trace of the root cause is available in the Apache Tomcat/7.0.56 (Ubuntu) logs.

    Any advice?

    Solve the issue by using MariaDB instead of MySQL
