Manual Installation: Individual Components

If you are using a non-Tomcat servlet runner, check the following before you extract the individual component files:

  • A JRE must be installed on your computer.

    If you do not already have one, download the latest JRE from the Oracle web site. You should download a version of the JRE that includes the server JVM. The JRE that is provided with the JDK includes the server JVM.

  • The JCE Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files must be applied. See Applying the JCE Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files.

  • The computer must have a servlet runner.

    The Administrative Server, Metering Server, and Terminal ID Manager must be installed as servlets within a servlet runner. Follow the installation information in the documentation for that servlet runner on where to install web applications and what settings to configure.

The following archive files for individual components are provided for installing on systems with a non-Tomcat servlet runner:
