Polypheny Control allows to easily setup and monitor Polypheny-DB. It takes care of pulling the required repositories and executing the builds.
Originally, Polypheny Control has been designed as a tool for automating the evaluation and benchmarking of Polypheny-DB. Its integrated REST interface allows to easily integrate it into complex benchmarking scenarios.
Due to its easy to use user-interface, Polypheny Control is the recommended way for setting up Polypheny-DB.
This section describes how to setup Polypheny Control to build and run Polypheny-DB.
To build and start Polypheny-DB using Polypheny Control you need to have Java JDK in Version 8 or higher installed on your system. Thanks to JGit, Polypheny Control contains a pure Java implementation of Git. Therefore, it is no longer required to have Git installed on the system.
Download the latest polypheny-control.jar from the release section.
On systems with a desktop environment, Polypheny Control can be started by double-clicking the JAR file. Polypheny Control then adds itself to the system tray.
Alternatively, you can also execute the JAR file with the argument
java -jar polypheny-control.jar tray
Polypheny Control can be started in healess mode by specifying the parameter
java -jar polypheny-control.jar control
The browser-based user interface can now be accessed on port 8070. This port can be changed using the parameter
java -jar polypheny-control.jar control -p 8070
We strongly recommend not to use any port between 8080 and 8089 as these are the default ports of services offered by Polypheny-DB.
After starting Polypheny Control, open the dashboard in your browser of choice by navigating to
localhost:8070. If Polypheny Control is running in tray mode, the dashboard can also be opened by clicking on the icon in the system tray and selecting
In order to start Polypheny-DB, we first need to trigger a build. This can be done by clicking on the
You can now open the Polypheny-UI by opening
localhost:8080 in your browser.

Polypheny Control builds upon the great work of several other open source projects:
- ansi_up.js: Converting text with ANSI terminal codes into colorful HTML.
- Font Awesome: A set of web-related icons.
- Tooltipster: jQuery plugin for modern tooltips.
All these libraries are imported using WebJars.
- Airline: Annotation-driven Java library for building command line interfaces.
- Apache Commons: A bunch of useful Java utility classes.
- GSON: Convert Java Objects into their JSON representation and vice versa.
- Javalin: A simple and lightweight java web framework.
- JGit: Pure Java implementation of the Git version control system.
- Log4j: Fast and flexible logging framework for Java.
- Project Lombok: A library providing compiler annotations for tedious tasks.
- SLF4J: Provides a logging API by means of a facade pattern.
- Typesafe Config: A configuration library using HOCON files.
- WinP: Windows process management library.
These projects are used "as is" and are integrated as libraries.
