1.0 Distributions

JERBO-1.0-RELEASE is the latest release of the application and it is available in two distributions: web application archive and GUI installer.
 

JERBO Web Application Archive

This distribution is more generic and platform agnostic distribution format. It contains JERBO web application archive only and requires installation and configuration of the following additional software: Java Runtime [version 1.6 or above], Tomcat server [version 7.0 or above], and MySQL database [version 5.1 or above]. This distribution becomes helpful if you already have Java, Tomcat and MySQL already installed on your computer or for Linux or Mac OS users who cannot use Windows installer.

Installation Instruction

To be able to run JERBO web application you will need download and install the following software:

Please follow installation instructions and ensure that your can start-stop Tomcat and MySQL instances before you proceed to the next step.

Database Configuration

Before you deploy JERBO you have to create MySQL database and user accounts which will be used by the application. If you are planning to use values other than those provided in the example [which is strongly recommended] you will need to update the JERBO application property file stored in the following location:

<TOMCAT_HOME>\webapps\jerbo\WEB-INF\classes\app-config.properties

Tomcat server must be restarted for the change to take effect.

Default database configuration properties are:

Database name: jerbo_db
Host:localhost
Port:3306
User name: jerbo_db_user
Password: jerbo_prod_#

  1. Open command line and connect to the database server as the MySQL root user:
  2. mysql -u root -p

  3. Create a database:
  4. create database jerbo_db;

  5. Create a user:
  6. create user ‘jerbo_db_user’@’localhost’ identified by ‘jerbo_prod_#’;

  7. Grant permission and privileges to the user:
  8. grant all on jerbo_db.* to ‘jerbo_db_user’@’localhost’ identified by ‘jerbo_prod_#’;

Application installation

Unzip and copy JERBO ‘war’ file into the Tomcat’s ‘webapps’ directory…

<TOMCAT_HOME>\webapps\

  1. To avoid out-of-memory type issues adapt JVM heap size by editing [create if it does not exist] the following file in the ‘bin’ directory in the Apache Tomcat directory…On Unix, edit [create] ‘setenv.sh‘ file and add:

    export CATALINA_OPTS=” -Xms128m –Xmx768m -XX:PermSize=64m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m”

    On Windows, edit [create] ‘setenv.bat‘ file and add:

    set CATALINA_OPTS=”-Xms128m -Xmx768m -XX:PermSize=64m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m”

  2. Start Tomcat server. A directory containing the content of the WAR file is created in the server’s ‘webapps’ directory.

If you need to modify database configuration properties, stop Tomcat and update the following file:

<TOMCAT_HOME>\webapps\jerbo\WEB-INF\classes\app-config.properties

Open browser and open the following url: http://[your_hostname]:[port]/jerbo-[version]

http://localhost:8080/jerbo-1.0-RELEASE

If installation and deployment went well you will see the JERBO login page. Login as administrator with the default credentials:

Username: jerboAdmin
