Launched the iConnect Portal Server

Today I launched iConnect Portal Server, a data presentation and delivery system for building enteprise portals over the iConnect Web Application Server. Users of the platform have a customized single point of access to the company’s information system and resources.

iConnect Portal Server is covered by the Mozilla Public License.

You can download iConnect Portal Server from the Carthag Projects download page.

 

INSTALLING iCONNECT PORTAL SERVER
=================================

Requirements
————

In order to run iConnect Portal Server the following requirements must be met:

– PHP 5 (http://www.php.net/)
– Carthag 1.2 (http://www.carthag.net/)
– iConnect Web Application Server 1.0
(http://projects.carthag.org/index.php/?content_page=/was/index.html)
– Apache (http://httpd.apache.org/)

Installation (UNIX)
——————-

Installing iConnect Portal Server can be done in few easy steps.

1. Unpack your distribution file.

You will have downloaded a file named something like portalserver-x.y.tar.gz.
Unzip this file with a command like: gunzip portalserver-x.y.tar.gz

Next you have to untar it with: tar -xvf portalserver-x.y.tar

This will create a portalserver-x.y directory.

2. Install the files.

Simply copy the extracted directory in the target directory, like
/usr/local/iconnect/. You may want to rename portalserver-x-y to portalserver.

3. Setting up Carthag.

The procedure in step 2 should have done most of your
work for you. Now, you need to add iConnect Portal Server classes directory to Carthag’s
classpath in the classpath directive in Carthag’s carthag.ini file.

eg.: classpath = “/usr/local/iconnect/portalserver/classes/”

Once you have made these changes you should be ready to run
iConnect Portal Server based applications.

Installing iConnect Portal Server under Windows can be done in few easy steps.
