VisKo Installation Instructions =============================== Prerequisites ------------- - apache ant (http://ant.apache.org/bindownload.cgi) - apache tomcat v6.0.* or v7.0.* (http://tomcat.apache.org/) - java jdk v6 or v7 (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html) - privilege to modify files under $tomcat/* - privilege to startup and shutdown tomcat Installation procedure ---------------------- STEP 1: Download visko-src.zip from http://sourceforge.net/projects/visko/files/visko-src.zip/download and unzip it in a local folder (${myfolder}). STEP 2: Open a command line environment in your computer and test that you can issue java and ant commands. From the command line, type 'javac -version' and Java should show the version of your java compiler. From the command line of a folder that does not have a file named build.xml, type the command 'ant' and ant should say 'Buildfile: build.xml does not exist!'. STEP 3: Navigate to directory ${myfolder}/visko-build STEP 4: Customize property file server.properties in visko-build according to your preferences and system settings. The critical properties to set are server-url and server-base-path, which should point to your local tomcat home folder. For folder names in property files, use forward slashes regardless of whether your operating system follows unix or windows conventions. Use backslashes to identify spaces in propery names (e.g., in folder names with spaces). STEP 5: From the command line, type 'ant' This command executes the build.xml script in visko-build responsible for installing a collection of basic visko modules and a visko server. The installation of a visko server includes the deployment of a visko web application named visko-web to your tomcat. STEP 6: Launch tomcat and browse '${yourdomain}/visko-web' Launch tomcat by running $TOMCAT_HOME/bin/startup.sh or $TOMCAT_HOME/bin/startup.bat on a linux or windows machine, respectively. In a default tomcat installation, ${yourdomain} is typically 'localhost:8080'. You should be able to access your local visko application by browsing http://${yourdomain}/visko-web (e.g., http://localhost:8080/visko-web) Testing Installation -------------------- If you can see the visko query form at http://${yourdomain}/visko-web, that means that your visko application was properly deployed. Cookies MUST be enabled on your browser in order for visko-web to work properly. If the class instances at http://${yourdomain}/visko-web/knowledge-base.jsp are not all 0 (zero), that means that your visko server has a knowlegde base and that the server should be able to execute visualization queries. Typical installation errors are reported during the execution of the ant script in STEP 5. A successful execution of the ant script in STEP5 is often a sign that the visko installation was also successfully completed. Using your Visko Server ----------------------- Follow the instructions and example available at http://openvisko.org/ql/ You will also find many examples of visko queries at http://iw.cs.utep.edu/visko-web/query.jsp that you can actually run using the visko query interface at http://iw.cs.utep.edu/visko-web/ More detailed instructions for installing VisKo will be available soon. Enjoy VisKo! Openvisko.org team.
