Requirements

Installation

  1. Edit pom.xml file and change the version tag to reflect the Sakai version. Also make sure that the full profile or the open meetings profile is activated by default.
  2. For Sakai 2.6 or lower, edit …/tool/pom.xml and change JSF dependencies.
  3. Run Maven to compile the tool:

-      maven sakai

-      mvn  clean install sakai:deploy

Edit your sakai.properties and add the following lines:

External database

The video conference tool needs a database to store all the information. Nowadays, only Oracle and MySql servers are supported by the tool.

You don’t need to create a new database or tables. The tool will use a Sakai database and will automatically create the tables that it needs.

If you are using a MySQL database and the SAKAI_USER, SAKAI_SITE or SAKAI_SITE_GROUP tables are not established with InnoDB engine, the script will fail. In that case, after deploying  the tool (and a new open meetings-tool folder was created) rename the file …/TOMCAT_SERVER/webapps/openmeetings-tool/WEB-INF/classes/mysql/sakai_videoconference_openmeetings_no_references.sql to …/TOMCAT_SERVER/webapps/openmeetings-tool/WEB-INF/classes/mysql/sakai_videoconference_openmeetings.sql
