Difficulties setting up

Message Hi,

I checked out the source to Eyebrowse from CVS today, intending to switch to
it from Debian's lists-archives. I liked the design info I saw.

I have never used the Tomcat/Jakarta stuff before, so maybe that is a
problem, but here are the problems I encountered:

1. docs/EyeBrowse-Tomcat-4.0.txt were wrong in several places. There is no
Makefile, so make does not work. The included web.xml and
eyebrowse.properties do not work well at all, giving all sorts of frustating
errors.

2. src/sql/eyebrowse-cr​eate-postgresql.sql has many problems. Evidentally
nobody has even TRIED to run it with Postgresql. Especially notable -- all
the inserts into eb_DateRange at the end are syntactically invalid. Here is
what you'd have to do (as a snippet):

INSERT INTO eb_DateRange VALUES ( '1997', '1997-01-01', '1997-12-31' );
INSERT INTO eb_DateRange VALUES ( '1998', '1998-01-01', '1998-12-31' );
INSERT INTO eb_DateRange VALUES ( 'Jan 1999', '1999-01-01', DATETIME '199
9-02-01' - INTERVAL '1 DAY' );
INSERT INTO eb_DateRange VALUES ( 'Feb 1999', '1999-02-01', DATETIME '199
9-03-01' - INTERVAL '1 DAY' );
INSERT INTO eb_DateRange VALUES ( 'Mar 1999', '1999-03-01', DATETIME '199
9-04-01' - INTERVAL '1 DAY' );
INSERT INTO eb_DateRange VALUES ( 'Apr 1999', '1999-04-01', DATETIME '199
9-05-01' - INTERVAL '1 DAY' );

3. When I finally got it all running, it complains of a syntax error near
SET. Apparently it is trying to SET big_something (sorry, forgot exactly
what) as a SQL query. This is obviously not going to work in PostgreSQL,
yet there seems to be no way at all to disable it.

I'll try again with MySQL and let you know how that goes. However, since I
already use PostgreSQL and prefer it, it seems annoying and silly to have to
run a separate database considering that there is JDBC support for it all.
