AstRecipes » Installing XC-ASTTo install XC-AST, you need:
Java 1.4+ working on your machine (if you don't, download a Java SDK from Sun)
A modern JSP/servlet container, like Apache Tomcat 5 or Jetty
MySQL version 4 These components should be already working before attemping an installation. As these components are quite OS independent, the software should work on most modern operating systems; we have tried it on both a Win32 system and on various flavours of Linux. If you are using Jetty as the servlet container, there is a detailed recipe here. Installing
Unpack the XC-AST tar archive, look for instructions within xc-ast/WEB-INF/README
Deploy the files in the webapp area of your servlet container
Download third party modules (see Adding third-party modules to XC-AST)
Create the required database (see Creating XC-AST database).
Start or restart your servlet container
Point your browser to http://YOURSERVER/xc-ast/
