I downloaded the demo using git (version in pom says 2.0.0-M1-6). I am building the code from command line (outside any IDE). The code built successfully with mvn install however in order to get it to run I had to alter the pom for the context like this:
due to this issue: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/JETTY-1072
I also had to alter the port number for the admin site because port 8081 is already in use on my machine. I chose 8082 instead.
The actual demo site comes up fine, but the admin site using url http://localhost:8082/admin
fails to launch getting the error:
The page isn't redirecting properly
Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.
afterward the url in my web browser looks like this:http://localhost:8082/admin/admin/admin ... min/admin/
