Just Want the Tars?

The download includes Tomcat 5.5.27. Services will be deployed into this Tomcat by default. NOTE on Ports: the packaged build uses port 9090 by default instead of the usual 8080.

  1. Download the services package. You may also check it out anonymously from our SVN. This allows you to easily obtain updates and bug fixes.
  2. Unpack and change directories: cd ogce-axis-services
  3. Check properties in ogce-axis-services/pom.xml
  4. Run the installation command mvn clean install
  5. Start your tomcat server as usual, or use our convenience scripts ./startup-tomcat.sh and ./shutdown-tomcat.sh.
  6. Point your browser to http://localhost:9090/axis2/ and verify the services can be listed.

The Resource Prediction Service requires some additional configuration. Detailed instructions are here. In summary,

  1. Install MySQL and create the RPS database and users.
  2. Start the RPS agent: cd ogce-axis-services/rps-agent; ./rpsAgent ./rps.properties
  3. Check rps-agent/var/services.log to see if the agent started correctly.

To build/rebuild individual services, use the command mvn -o clean install -f rps/pom.xml (to rebuild the RPS service, for example.)
