Standalone installation

Instructions on how to install JAQPOT3 as a standalone web application. The standalone installation is usually preferred over the use of the deployed instance of the services at opentox.ntua.gr:8080 either when one needs extra security (having the whole OpenTox network running on a local network or even on a single machine that is disconnected from the Internet) or for testing, debugging and development.

Here we provide an easy-to-follow guide on how to install and run JAQPOT3 locally. Briefly, what one needs to have installed is a MySQL server and a Java Virtual Machine. Maven2 proves to be very useful in order to compile, build and run JAQPOT3. Additionally the installation of a git client facilitates the download of the source code of JAQPOT3.

The installation guide that follows refers to Unix-based systems. In particular this tutorial has been tested on Debian, Ubuntu and Mac OS X operating systems. Jaqpot3 can also run on Windows but it has not been tested yet.
