Running locally

This project uses the Maven Cargo plugin to run Essentials, the CMS and site locally in Tomcat.
From the project root folder, execute:

  mvn clean verify
  mvn -P cargo.run

Access the Hippo Essentials at http://localhost:8080/essentials.
After your project is set up, access the CMS at http://localhost:8080/cms and the site at http://localhost:8080/site.
Logs are located in target/tomcat7x/logs

Building distribution

To build a Tomcat distribution tarball containing only deployable artifacts:

  mvn clean verify
  mvn -P dist

See also src/main/assembly/distribution.xml if you need to customize the distribution.

Using JRebel

Set the environment variable REBEL_HOME to the directory containing jrebel.jar.

Build with:

  mvn clean verify -Djrebel

Start with:

  mvn -P cargo.run -Djrebel

Best Practice for development

Use the option -Drepo.path=/some/path/to/repository during start up. This will avoid
your repository to be cleared when you do a mvn clean.

For example start your project with:

  mvn -P cargo.run -Drepo.path=/home/usr/tmp/repo

or with jrebel:

  mvn -P cargo.run -Drepo.path=/home/usr/tmp/repo -Djrebel

Hot deploy

To hot deploy, redeploy or undeploy the CMS or site:

  cd cms (or site)
  mvn cargo:redeploy (or cargo:undeploy, or cargo:deploy)

Automatic Export

Automatic export of repository changes to the filesystem is turned on by default. To control this behavior, log into
http://localhost:8080/cms/console and press the "Enable/Disable Auto Export" button at the top right. To set this
as the default for your project edit the file

Monitoring with JMX Console
You may run the following command:


Now open the local process org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap start
