Extract sbtsdk-1.0.0.xx.zip to a convenient location such as C:\temp
. See http://ibmsbt.openntf.org
for instructions on how to obtain the SDK.
Make sure that you have Java
™ 6 or later installed on your system, and that the environment variable JRE_HOME points to the JRE. If you previously set the CATALINA_HOME variable to another Apache Tomcat instance, you must reset it to this one.
Also, make sure that you have no other services using port 8080.
The server is configured to use the Connections 4 instance in the Connections QuickStart Image. Have the Connections QuickStart Image installed, running, and available at https://qs.renovations.com:444
before trying the sample applications. If you are not using the QuickStart Image, or are using a different URL, you must modify a file called sbt.properties
such that the connections.url
property is equal to the IP of the correct connections server. Other properties can be changed as needed. This file is in the conf
folder of the Apache Tomcat server supplied with the SDK. For more information, see Connecting to other systems
The instructions assume that you have extracted sbtsdk-1.0.0.xx.zip
to the folder C:\temp
- Locate the Tomcat archive in the SDK that you extracted. If you extracted to C:\temp, the Tomcat archive is C:\temp\sbtsdk\tomcat\apache-tomcat-7.0.30-sbt.zip.
- Extract the Tomcat archive to a convenient location, for example, C:\Apache\apache-tomcat-7.0.30 on Windows or /var/lib/Apache/apache-tomcat-7.0.30 on Linux.
- Run the Apache Tomcat startup script.
In Windows, if you extracted to C:\Apache\apache-tomcat-7.0.30, the startup.bat script is in C:\Apache\apache-tomcat-7.0.30\bin.
In Linux, if you extracted to /var/lib/Apache/apache-tomcat-7.0.30, the startup.sh script is in /var/lib/Apache/apache-tomcat-7.0.30/bin.
To verify that the SDK was installed correctly, open a web browser and go to http://localhost:8080/sbt.sample.web
. If the The Social Business Toolkit - Samples page opens, the SDK is installed and operating correctly.
