Download the latest war file and deply it to your favourite servlet container. The latest build
is tested on Tomcat 6.0.20 but there is no reason why it would have problems on any 2.4 compliant
Because of the way the flex aplication swf is compiled, you will need to deploy express to the root
of your domain. This means that if you are simply deploying to the localhost in the Tomcat webapps
directory you will need to unzip the application war and rename it ROOT.
Express requires a relational database. By default it uses postgres and was developed against 8.4.
It will work against most relational databases as persistence is done via JPA and database management
through Liquibase. In order to use a different database, at this stage, you will need to add the
database driver to the lib directory and change the properties accordingly (see config section below).
Most configuration is done in the application.properties file which is located in the exploded war
file under theWEB-INF/classes folder.
At a minimum you will need to add the properties for your smtp server. Without an smtp server you cannot
register as express sends a confirmation email to ensure that the user has a valid email address. You
will also need to change the entry for the applicationUrl to your domain name as the link in the
confirmation email uses this.
