#7 java.lang.NoSuchMethodError on IMPORT


I am running a Windows XP machine with 2 GH P4, 60 GB
HD and 512 MB RAM.

I use Sun Java 1.4.2.b3, JBuilder 9 and sometimes
Eclipse 2.

I have Apache 2.0.47, Tomcat 4.1, Cocoon 2.1, Xindice
1.1 all installed and running. I am looking at dbXML
because I suspect it to be a superior version of Xindice.
(although I like that I can run Xindice under Tomcat as a
web service)

There are multiple symptoms for what I think is a
common problem. Basically dbXML is unusable for me at
this time.

I tried both install methods: InstallAnywhere and un-zip
archive to a directory.

In either install case:

1. After install, if I issue: startup.bat, I get an Exception
in Thread Main and the command prompt locks up. I
have to ^C to get back to the command prompt and the
DBXML server is not running.

I started the server as an NT service using 'install-ntsvc
install' which seemd to work just fine.

I can run 'dbxml' and get a database prompt
I can LSCOL, LSUSER, I can even ADDUSER, MKCOL and
COL to the new collection.

2. If I try to grant R/W rights to my new collection
to 'scott', I get a NoSuchMethodError exception thrown
and I am taken back to a DOS command prompt.

3. If I IMPORT a file into my collection, I get a
java.lang.NoSuchMethodError exception and I am taken
back to a DOS command prompt

I can COL to system/SysConfig and SHOW the
database.xml file.

I can use REST to view the database.xml file in the
system/SysConfig collection through a web browser.

I can use the Administrator to view the same XML file.

But I can't add any content to the database or set
security levels for collections.

Any ideas?

    Absolutely no ideas as I'm able to do all of these things in
    both Windows and Mac OS X. The only difference being that
    you don't assign permissions to the user 'scott', but to
    their associated role, which would be 'admin'.

    Have you tried the version of dbXML that's in CVS? This may
    be more useful to you. Mind you, you'll have to
    re-bootstrap the database if you fetch it from dbXML, but
    it's worth a try.

    I plan on officially releasing RC1 very soon.
