This is the README file for Resin 4.0(tm)
The documentation included with Resin is in XTP format starting at
For more information about configuring Resin, the full documentation is
also available online at:
Questions should go to our mailing list or forums. -- mailing lists -- forum -- bug reports
I) Licensing/Support
For pricing and licensing information for Resin 4.0 Professional,

II) Preconditions
1) Resin needs a Java JDK before it can run. Resin 4.0 works with
JDK 1.6 or greater.
Some locations for JDKs include:
2) On Windows, you'll need an unzip tool available at
3) A HTML 5 browser is needed for some features of the /resin-admin tool.
III) Getting Started
The included HTTP/1.1 server makes it easy to evaluate Resin, JSP
and servlets. Just start it up. The default configuration
file is found in resin-4.0.x/conf/resin.xml.
1) On Unix, you'll want to build the JNI libraries:
resin-4.0.x> ./configure --prefix=`pwd`
resin-4.0.x> make
resin-4.0.x> make install
2) To start the server:
unix> bin/ start
C:\> java -jar lib/resin.jar start
The server listens to port 8080. Port 8080 is the default specified
in the configuration file resin-4.0.x/conf/resin.xml
Log files are in resin-4.0.x/log
3) Usually, Resin can find the JDK, but you may need to set JAVA_HOME in some
Starting Resin with -verbose is a great way to see what environment
Resin is running.
4) Browse http://localhost:8080 or equivalently
5) Go through the documentation at http://localhost:8080/resin-doc
IV) Application Deployment
1) You can use the command-line to deploy a .war file:
unix> bin/ deploy foo.war
2) You can also copy the war file to the webapps directory.
To deploy a war file, place the file in resin-4.0.x/webapps/foo.war
Resin will expand the war file, and the application will be available
with the url http://localhost:8080/foo/
3) Resin supports the development of applications without requiring a war
file deployment. Create a directory resin-4.0.x/webapps/bar to
correspond to url http://localhost:8080/bar/. Java source files
placed in resin-4.0.x/webapps/bar/WEB-INF/classes/ are automatically
compiled by Resin.
--> http://localhost:8080/bar/
--> http://localhost:8080/bar/index.jsp
-- servlet/jsp configuration file
-- Resin specific configuration
-- java source file, automatically compiled by Resin
4) For PHP, create test.php in resin-4.0.x/webapps/ROOT/test.php and browse
IV) PDF Reports
With Resin-Pro, you can get a PDF snapshot report of the server with the
unix> bin/ pdf-report
You can also get a watchdog restart report with the -watchdog option
unix> bin/ pdf-report -watchdog
V) /resin-admin browser-based administration
An administration application is available at
