roo initial issues
I have downloaded latest release of roo and installed on CentOS 5.3.
JAVA_HOME and ROO_HOME environment variables are appropriately set.
I have observed following differences compared to documentation.
1. when I start roo I do not see "roo" logo.
2. When running project --topLevelPackage com.webex.try, I see log.roo, pom.xml and src directory but do not see applicationContext.xml file.
3. Creating Persistence setup works persistence setup --provider HIBERNATE --database HYPERSONIC_IN_MEMORY
I can also see no failed messages in log.roo file
4. Creating entity fails as follows. entity --class ~.Timer --testAutomatically
I see following message in log.roo file..
entity --class ~.Timer --testAutomatically
I think I am missing something here...
Any hint is appreciated.

Sorry you had such a unpleasant first experience. My guess would be that your JDK is currently OpenJDK which does cause the problems you are describing. See the known issues section in our documentation and ROO-106
Can you please install the Sun JDK 6 and let me know if this resolves your issues?

I can confirm. I'm on Fedora 12, which also has OpenJDK by default. Roo behaves similarly as Raj described. When changed to Sun JDK, everything works fine.

Indeed that was issue
Problem eclipsed after using SUN JDK as suggested. Thanks for quick turnaround.
