Which authentification method are you using? I had the same problem you are
experiencing when I was using ssh connection with ssh-agent forwarding. But if I
provide the password it works fine.

Probably there is a bug somewhere connected with passwordless


Probably I understood which is your problem. Each module has to be checked out
on the web server before you can browse it with your browser.
After you create the new view you have to click on My Home and then you should
be able to the list of all the existing views. Click on the green circle with a
tick mark inside. In this way you are asking at webapplication to checkout on
the server the module so that it can be browsed afterward. You don't need to
check out manually all your projects, otherwise this webapplication would be
completly useless...


The solution of my problem was very simple... After installation you have to be
sure that the Tomcat server is working and that the firewall settings are such
that external connections are allowed on port 8080.
On my system port 8080 was already used for something else (don't ask me why) so
I changed the configuration in order to make tomcat listeing on port 8000 (a
free one) and finally it worked!
To be honest jcvsweb is not exactly what i expected. For example an important
feature still missing is the possibility to download a entire directory or a
module locally on your machine, possibly targizzeped.

Bye for now (toto)
I'm sure that JCVSWeb is able to check out on the server machine the cvs
repository content. I saw it with my eyes... but then you CANNOT get a copy of
the cvs machine on your local coputer, or in other words, the jCVSWeb can be
used only to browse the cvs repository - nothing else! I think that can be
improved !
Just adding few buttons like "download a tarball of the project" should make it
and it shouldn't be too much complicated. Unfortunately I have no time at the
moment, otherwise I would like to invest some time and effort to implement it!

Let me know your opinion...

Sorry for the stupid question. I've solved the problem by my self!

thanks the same

Dear all!
I managed to install jCVS on my web server and I created my first
project with its first view. Everything seems to work nicely... but I would
really appreciate to have the possibility to click on a button and download
locally on my computer the cheked - out files.
Do you know if something similar has been already implemented by
someone? Can you help me?

Thanks a lot!


Dear all!
I'm very new in this field. Few days ago I was looking the web for a
useful, easy-to-use and to administrate web interface for CVS, and I found this
java web application. I'd say that this is my first trial with a java web app!
This is what I did:

1. I've installed j2sdk1.4. And it seems to be fine
2. Since I've already installed apache on my machine, I installed tomcat 5.5 and
I think I did all necessary configuration
3. I've put jcvsweb.war in the webapp dir and restarted tomcat. The war file was
automatically exploded into the jcvsweb dir. In such a dir there are two other
dirs (META-INF and WEB-INF) and a single file (index.jsp)
4. I've type the address of mydomain/webapp/jcvsweb and for a while a page
appears and then suddenly disappers. The location is redirected to
mydomain/webapp/jcvsweb/home that doesn't exist.

Could you help me? It would me very kind of you!
