Hi,

Has anyone built a headless EMFStore installation. Will appreciate if someone can share insights on what is involved in creating an headless installation of EMFStore.

thanks in advance.

Hi Namrata.

sorry for the delayed reply. You can build a headless EMFStore product
following this tutorial:
http://www.eclipse.org/emfstore/documentation/buildProduct.php
Let me know if you have any more questions or issues.

Cheers,
Maximilian

Thanks Maximilian,

The instructions helped.
I'm not stuck on how to launch the instance from a terminal. How can I launch a EMFStore instance from a terminal. Please advise.

thanks

If you exported the product like the tutorial said, then you end up with an executable file emfstore.exe (or just emfstore on Linux) in the exported application in the "eclipse" folder under the root folder you exported to, assuming you used the defaults from the export wizard. I tried this on Windows and it executed fine, I can't try it on Linux right now because my VM is broken. Mad

This is less than ideal for a production application, because at least on Windows you get no feedback really that the app is running unless you open the task manager. For linux it would work fine, since it's much easier to run daemons, but on Windows you would want to use a service wrapper of some kind. Even better, create a WAR file and deploy it on Tomcat or something, then you have some management capabilities. You can use the WAR Product builder from the Libra project, or use one of the many examples on the net for building WAR files with embedded Equinox instances. I usually go with the method described in Jeff McAffer's Equinox book.

Hi,

sorry for the late reply, I overlooked your reply. To start EMFStore you
launch the generated product executable, e.g. on Windows
<product.name>.exe. Often it is useful to wrap this into a service on
Windows, the following tool helps to do this:

Anyway we will provide support to generate a war file with one of the
next releases.

Best regards,
Maximilian
