Operating Systems

SyMBA can be installed on either Windows or Linux, but we highly recommend a Linux system, specifically Ubuntu.

If you use Ubuntu, it is simple to apt-get the components required. Alternatively, you could create a Virtual Machine and install the latest Ubuntu Server (or Standard) release on it. Ubuntu has the advantage that it has PostgreSQL and Maven 2.x in its package repository. During the Ubuntu server installation it even asks whether you want to install a database server.

Web Server

SyMBA produces war files for upload onto a server such as Apache Tomcat or Glassfish . Please ensure you have a suitable system in place for the upload of the SyMBA web archives.
