Squale installation


Before installing Squale on your system, you must make sure that your configuration meets the following requirements :

  • JDK 1.5 or above
  • JAVA_HOME variable exists and is set to the location of the JDK, and the "bin" folder of the JDK is in the PATH.

To check if your configuration is correct, execute "java -version" in a shell. You should have something like:

bellingard@xxx:~$ java -version
java version "1.5.0_16"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_16-b02)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_16-b02, mixed mode, sharing)

Installation instructions

You have two options:

  • Use the standalone Squale
    • Easy install thanks to a graphical installer
    • But recommended for test purposes only (because it uses an embedded database)
  • Install Squale manually
    • Needs a web server (Servlet > 2.3) and a database server (MySql or Oracle currently supported out of the box)
    • Recommended to set up a production ready Squale platform
