provides a bundle that includes Tomcat version 7.0.35 65
and has the
web application, the database connector web application and the Google connector web application pre-deployed and pre-configured. The bundle works on Windows, Linux and Mac systems without any further configuration. If you are evaluating
, we strongly recommend the bundle.
Although we recommend Tomcat 7, we realize that you may have a customized tomcat environment and just want to drop the v5.x frevvo.war into it. If it is a tomcat 6 installation, here are some tips :
- 5.x requires JDBC4. Tomcat 6 ships with DBCP 1.3, which is compatible with JDBC3 not 4. Update the tomcat-dbcp.jar file in your installation with the tomcat 7 version.
- The v5.x frevvo.war file requires a javax.transaction implementation jar in the servlet container. This file is not bundled with the war. For Tomcat installs, you can copy the jta-1.1.jar, included in the Tomcat bundle, into your tomcat/lib folder. Full J2EE containers already have the jta jar in the classpath.
Your Live Forms server installation is complete. You are now ready to create your firsts tenant, users, forms and workflows. See the documentation for creating a tenant and users.
