Installing Reflection

Servlet Runner (Tomcat)

If you are installing on a platform for which an automated installer is not provided or if you cannot run the automated installer for any reason, use tomcat.zip to install Tomcat (located on the CD-ROM for your platform in the \install\nonautomated\ directory).

Installing tomcat.zip

Extract tomcat.zip into a ReflectionServer directory on your computer.

Configuring the servlet runner

Enter the JAVA_HOME variable in the appropriate files. (You must have a JDK installed on the computer.)

Windows:

  1. Open the [installation path]\jakarta-tomcat-[version number]\bin\setenv.bat file in a text editor. Search for java.exe on your computer and enter the path to the folder above the \bin\ folder in the JAVA_HOME line in setenv.bat. For example, the JAVA_HOME line might be:

       set JAVA_HOME=C:\Sun\AppServer\jdk
    or
       set JAVA_HOME=C:\Java\j2re1.5.0_01

  2. Save your changes.

UNIX or Linux:

  1. Open the [installation path]/jakarta-tomcat-[version number]/bin/setenv.sh file in a text editor. Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable path so it corresponds to your directory structure. Search for java on your computer and enter the path to the directory above the /bin/ directory. The JAVA_HOME line in setenv.sh might read, for example:

       JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/j2re1.5.0_01

  2. Save your changes.

  3. Set permissions on the .sh files to allow full access for owner, and read and execute permissions for group and other. Use the following command:

       chmod 755 *.sh

After you have installed Tomcat, install and configure the Reflection management server.
