Anyway, one thing I didn't like of late was the results for my attempt to install a plugin for OpenBD. Specifically, I was trying to drop a language add-on for Twitter functionality only to discover that OpenBD's automatic plugin detector was awry. After much digging, investigating, head/desk contact and ScoobySnack consumption, I was relieved to encounter someone today who could guide me to a pretty damned easy workaround. Because such has not been documented on the web (that I could find), I provide to you now, free of charge, my quick and easy 7 Steps To Installing A Plugin On OpenBD:
- Drop the pertinent openbd-XXXX-plugin.jar file into the /opt/openbd/lib/ folder.
- Edit the bluedragon.xml document (found in the /opt/openbd/conf/ folder) and add the following entry under <server><system> (same level as <buffersize> and <licensekey>): <pluginjarpath>file:///opt/openbd/lib/openbdplugin-XXXX.jar</pluginjarpath>
- To add more plugin files, simply comma-separate them within the single <pluginjarpath> tag
- Login to Kloxo
- Go to Admin - Server:linux - Command center
- Type: /etc/init.d/openbd_ctl restart to reboot the server
- Login to OpenBD admin and click on Log Files under Debugging and Logging
- View the log file for bluedragon.log
- You should see an entry in the log (2 lines) that looks something like this: 25/03/11 12:08.40: -] PluginManager Manual Loading ...
25/03/11 12:08.40: -] PlugIn.Load.Installed: org.alanwilliamson.openbd.plugin.spreadsheet.SpreadSheetPlugin; SpreadSheet; Version=1.95
And that's pretty much it. Further explanation as well as some insight into why I needed this, who helped, how they helped and why Adobe CF isn't the only game in town on my latest blog entry here.
