Sources and package

Demographic Data Server is a maven project. Sources are available on the INRIA Source Forge at the following URL:

https://gitlab.inria.fr/gazelle/applications/test-design/DemographicDataServer.git

If you’d like to checkout the sources on your system you might want to use the following svn command, provided subversion is installed on your system.

git clone https://gitlab.inria.fr/gazelle/applications/test-design/DemographicDataServer.git

Note that the latest executable can be extracted from our nexus repository as well  at Nexus Repository Manager.

Important, if you download the ear from Nexus it will have a name such as DemographicDataServer-ear-X.X.X.ear, then be sure to rename it to DemographicDataServer.ear otherwise the deployment will fail.

Installation

This tool is to be installed in a Jboss 7.2 application server and runs with a PosgreSQL database.

If you do not have yet a Jboss installed in your environment, proceed as described in General consideration page.

Database creation

Your database must have a user gazelle.

  1. Download the SQL scripts archive from Nexus Repository Manager (search for DemographicDataServer-ear-X.X.X-sql.zip).
  2. Unzip the archive into a folder DemographicDataServer-sql
  3. Connect to your database
    psql -U gazelle
    
  4. Excute the SQL statement to create the database.
    CREATE DATABASE "demographic-data-server" OWNER gazelle ENCODING UTF8 ;
    
  5. Initialize database by running :
    psql -U gazelle demographic-data-server < DemographicDataServer-sql/init-x.x.x.sql
    

Deployment

To deploy Demographic Data Server:

  1. Paste the archive DemographicDataServer.ear in the JBoss deployment directory ${JBOSS7\_HOME}/standalone/deployments/
  2. Display JBoss server logs, start JBoss and wait for ear deployment.
  3. The application can be browsed at http://localhost:8080/DDS. Port could also be different whether you have modified the JBoss configuration.
  4. WARNING : From version 4.2.0, datasources have been extracted from the ear. The template file can be found in /src/main/application/datasource in the source or in the file DemographicDataServer-X.X.X-datasource.zip from the nexus. For more informations about how to manage that externalization, please refer to general considerations for JBoss7.

Datasource name : DemographicDataServerDS

Database name : demographic-data-server

Update from a previous version

  1. Download the new ear and its associated update SQL script from our Nexus Repository Manager (search for DemographicDataServer-X.X.X.ear and DemographicDataServer-X.X.X-sql.zip). Not each version has an update sql to execute.

  2. Unzip the SQL archive

  3. Execute SQL statements. Check that the database is correctly updated.

  4. Deploy the new ear

Due to the update mechanism of the database, it is important to not skip any version of the application in an overall update. You cannot go directly from 2.0.0 to 2.3.0, you will have to repeat the process from 2.0.0 to 2.0.1, 2.0.2, 2.0.3 and so on.
