Installation

SimpleEPT is a pure-Java server-side web application. It runs on any platform (Windows, Unix, Linux ) and supports most Relational Databases (Oracle, MYSQL, Microsoft SQL).

Requirement

In order to install SimpleEPT, you’ll need a server environment that meets the following requirements:

  • A servlet engine with at least JSP 1.2 and Servlet 2.4 support.
  • JDK 1.6.x or later.
  • A supported database with a JDBC 2.0 compliant driver.

We bundle with Apache Tomcat 6.0.35 and HSQL DB 2.2.8 with the distributed zip/gz file.

Installation

Please follow the steps below to deploy the application

1. un-pack the zip/gz file in a folder, eg. app

2. open a command console, set the JRE HOME if JRE HOME is not set yet
 for example, in window:
     set JRE_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_20
 in unix/linux:
    export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-sun

3. go to the unpacked folder (eg.app).
 then cd to tomcat bin folder, run the startup command
 cd freetrial\tomcat6\bin

 startup.bat (window)
 ./startup.sh (unix/linux)

4. you should be ready to go.

 open a broswer (ie,firefox,chrome)
 http://servername:8080/ept/Main.html

 change the server name with your server name or ip address,
  or localhost if it is in the same machine
 eg. http://localhost:8080/ept/Main.html
