Standalone Squale installation

The standalone version of Squale uses an embeded HSQL DB and an embeded Tomcat to ease its installation.
The database is already filled with data:

  • configuration and quality grids already inserted
  • an example application configured and ready to be analyzed
  • 3 accounts to connect to the web portal :
    • user1/user1, a "project manager"-like user
    • user2/user2, a "developer"-like user
    • squaleadmin/admin, a "admin"-like user

The aim of this standalone version is only to help you test Squale rapidely.

Installation instructions

To install this standalone version, you just need to double-click on the JAR file that you have downloaded and follow the graphical installer instructions.

Note: if double-clicking does not work, you can launch the installer by running the following command:

java -jar squale-standalone-X.Y-installer.jar 

Note for Windows users

  • To start Squale, click on the "Start Squale" shortcut: 3 command windows will open, which is normal.
