Let us get Rolling
As I said earlier for the corporate world Roller type java blogs make a lot more sense. Sun’s decision to use Roller also cemented these thoughts. Finally I installed Roller 0.9.8 at my present client and boy that was a breeze of an install. While it can not be compared to the 5-minute install of WordPress but for a multi-user blogging application deployed on a solid J2EE based scalable architecture it is great. It took me about 40-55 minutes to install excluding the download time for various components. Install was in a Windows environment. The only place where I stopped to think was Search Engine index settings. I had to make Tomcat service run as a named user account instead of the default LocalSystem Account.Overall I am quite happy.
