Preparation

Tomcat Setup

Install Tomcat 6.0.x binary distribution (don’t use its Ubuntu package).
Do NOT use Apache 7.0!
(Hendy’s note: maybe should try to use JBoss AS)

a. Extract Tomcat distribution as $HOME/openbravo-tomcat (do not use the apache-tomcat-x.x.x folder)
This folder will be referred to as $CATALINA_HOME.
b. Set CATALINA_HOME environment variable in ~/.bashrc because it will be used by Openbravo Setup Ant script
c. Set CATALINA_OPTS environment variable in ~/.bashrc as follows: (to fix PermGen error)

export CATALINA_OPTS="-Djava.awt.headless=true -Xms384M -Xmx512M -XX:MaxPermSize=256M"

d. Copy the tools.jar file (from JDK in /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk/lib) to Tomcat’s lib/ folder.
e. In order to avoid Tomcat from auto-reloading itself, comment the <WatchedResource> line in $CATALINA_HOME/conf/context.xml
f. Create administrator user
g. Start Tomcat

PostgreSQL Setup

Install PostgreSQL 8.4 with UUID support : install Ubuntu packages postgresql-8.4, postgresql-contrib-8.4
Do NOT use PostgreSQL 9.1 with Openbravo (yet)!

a. Check if 8.4 main cluster exists. If not, create 8.4 main cluster at port 5433.
b. Start PostgreSQL 8.4
c. Set password for postgres user in the 8.4 main cluster

Installation

1. Make sure Apache Tomcat 6.0 is running
2. Make sure PostgreSQL cluster 8.4 main is running

3. Download the setup binary (setup-properties-linux-x64.bin) corresponding to your system
and put it on config/ folder.
It is available at Bippo intranet Nexus, search for setup-properties-linux-x64.

Internal note: If you want to download setup-properties directly from Openbravo upstream, run:

ant setup

4. Run the downloaded file in the config directory. For example in
amd64 Linux:

config/setup-properties-linux-x64.bin

Internal note: If there is no setup binary for your operating system and architecture,
send a request to <staff.rm at openbravo dot com>.

5. To install it run:

ant install.source

It creates the database structure, builds the core, compiles
Openbravo and generates a war file.

Deploy this war file into the tomcat/webapps directory.

Eclipse Projects Setup

1. Copy classpath.sample to .classpath
2. Do a Git Import from each of these folders in ~/git/openbravo :

a. /
b. src-core/
c. src-trl/
d. src-wad/

You should get 4 Eclipse projects named:

a. openbravo
b. OpenbravoCore
c. OpenbravoTrl
d. OpenbravoWAD
