Plugins not hot deploying

using 2.1.2 on redhat 9. Drop the plugin-search.jar file into the jive_Messenger/plugins directory and wait… Using the Admin tool, I see that no plugins are deployed.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi rdonath,

Are you seeing any error messages in the log viewer?

Thanks,

Ryan

no messages in any logs that seem appropriate.

Hmm… are you able to conduct searches?

nope… I placed the plugin-search.jar file into the /plugins directory. I think the problem is that it doesn’‘t have the plugin.xml file to go with it. Did I deploy it incorrectly? I have the zip file I downloaded but I didn’'t think the JEtty hot deploy knows how to handle the zip file.

Did you download the plugin from url=http://www.jivesoftware.org/messenger/plugins.jsphere[/url]? The file name should be search.jar, not plugin-search.jar.

Hey Rob,

You need to drop the url=http://www.jivesoftware.org/messenger/plugins/search.jarsearch.jar[/url] file in the plugins folder. Messenger will unpack the jar file and create a search folder which will contain the files included in the jar.

It seems that you are trying to use the plugin-search.jar file instead of the search.jar so nothing will happen in that case.

Slap me stoopid… It is now working. I had the wrong pieces in the directory since IE downloaded the jar file as a zip, I unzipped it an put just a subset of what was needed on the system. All fixed now. Thanks!
