If you are using Tomcat as your webapp container, then AstroGrid provides a number of graphical installer applications that manage downloading,
installing and configuring AstroGrid components.
These installer apps are executable jar files and require only that JDK1.4+ is installed on your machine. Once downloaded, double-click on the jar file (in Windows Explorer) or execute
java -jar installer-name.jar
from the commandline. As well as prompting you for any configuration settings, the installer will give you the opportunity to save your settings to allow easy reinstallation.
Follow the links to the left to download the latest installer for each component.
If you can only access the internet through a proxy then you run the installers with:
java -jar install-name.jar -p proxyhost:port [-u username:password]
The installers use a Swing-based GUI. If you're installing on a headless machine, then run the installers with a -c switch to use text-only mode.
