<title>eXist-1.4.x: Installation Notes</title>
<para>eXist 1.4.x requires the Java 1.6 JDK from Oracle for installation; the Java JRE
does not suffice, nor do versions earlier than 1.6. See Oracle's <ulink
url="http://www.java.com/en/download/help/index_installing.xml">Installing
java</ulink> page for instructions on installing the Java 1.6 JDK.</para>
<para>The Mac and Linux versions of eXist 1.4.x lack the menubar/toolbar icons for
starting, shutting down, and restarting eXist.</para>
<!-- TODO poll the devs for other differences -->
</section>
<section id="v1.4-repository">
<title>eXist 1.4.x: Installing Sample Applications using the Admin Webpage</title>
<para>eXist version 2.0.x comes with an application repository, which allows users to
download and deploy eXist-db based applications with a single mouse click. Most of
the examples can be installed from the application repository. If you are using
eXist 2.0, continue with the section describing <ulink url="app-repository.xml"
>installation via the repository</ulink>.</para>
<para>On eXist 1.4.x, the repository was not yet available, so you have to use the admin
web application to download and install data.</para>
<para>To begin using the database system, you must first create document collections and
import files into eXist. To help you in learning these and other basic database
operations, a number of simple XQuery web applications have been included with the
eXist distribution. These applications are designed to allow users to experiment and
query sample XML documents using the eXist database system. </para>

<tgroup cols="2">

<para>To start using these sample applications, you must log in to
the eXist database administration page. To log in, go to the
<ulink url="http://localhost:8080/exist/admin/admin.xql"
>Administration Âť Admin</ulink> link located on the sidebar
menu on the <ulink url="http://localhost:8080/exist/">local
eXist homepage</ulink>.</para>
<para>You should now see the login screen as shown on the
right.</para>
<para>Enter the username "admin" and the password you set during
installation (or which you have set by other means). </para>

<tr>

<para>Once you have logged in, select Examples Setup from the menu
on the left. Most of the example data is shipped with eXist, but
some files need to be downloaded. Check the "The XML Acronym
Demystifier" and "The Mondial Database (Europe)" in order to
download these files. Click on the "Import Files" button to
import the example data into eXist.</para>
<para>After you have imported the files, you can access the
collections they are imported into by clicking on "Browse
Collections". Here you can upload and delete individual files,
as well as view the contents of them.</para>

<tr>

<para>After the example data has been imported, you can go back to
the <ulink url="http://localhost:8080/exist/">Home</ulink> page
and you will now be able to query the imported files through a
number of small web applications listed in <ulink
url="http://localhost:8080/exist/examples.xml">All
Examples</ulink> in the "Examples" tab.</para>
<!--"All Examples" should be moved up to the top in the Examples tab. "Bibliographic" should read "Bibliography". Jens Petersen-->
<para>The simplest of these applications is the <ulink
url="http://localhost:8080/exist/sandbox/">XQuery
Sandbox</ulink> shown on the right which allows users to
submit queries to the XML files imported into the database. The
XQuery Sandbox provides the easiest way to start experimenting
with eXist and XQuery.</para>
<para>A number of sample queries are furnished through the dropdown
menu. After modifying the queries, you can store them in the
slots on the left. Click on an empty slot to store the query in
the main query field. If you click on a slot with a stored
query, the contents of the stored query and the main query field
will be swapped.
<!-- Users have complained that they do not understand this mechanism. Perhaps it would be an idea to have separate store and display buttons. Jens Petersen -->
