Local run

  1. Run dev_server.bat from project directory. Wait until server started;
  2. You can test appliication by visit locahost:8080 in your browser. Actually it is fully functional application but without cron jobs because they are not supported by GAE development server;
  3. If server started and application works you can stop it by Ctrl-C and deploy it on GAE server.

GAE deploy

  1. Stop local server by Ctrl-C if it is run;
  2. Run ant update from project directory and wait while it is completed;
  3. Test your Orb server by visit %application.identifier%.appspot.com

  1. Stop it by Ctrl-C;
  2. Run ant rollback from project directory;
  3. Repeat GAE deploy steps.
