Requirements for all layers of the archetecture

  • Tomcat or other servlet container to run the CDS and CMS for Cofax. These instructions are Tomcat specific, your mileage may very.
  • If Tomcat is installed to d:\usr\local\tomcat installation is greatly simplified.
  • Your servlet container(Tomcat) should already be operational. For Tomcat you must get to the point where you can run the examples from the default install at http://localhost:8080/
  • You need the JRE or JDK version 1.3 or higher installed.
  • You will need MS SQL Server to store your content. Note that you can change this default behavior by overriding the org.cofax.DataStore class.
  • If you have created a server alias called LOCALHOST using the SQL Server Client Network utility, installation is greatly simplified.
  • You will need a JDBC database driver installed. Microsoft provides a free JDBC driver at This particular driver will make installation easier since the default configuration in the downloads use this.
  • Prepare yourself and your servers. Make sure you know where you want to install Cofax, and you have all the machines ready to go, you have the right set of access to the file system and you have pleanty of free space to work with. Cofax itself is very small but its always better to have lots of room to grow.
