Chapter 1: Getting Started with EAServer

Starting the server

Before you can work through the tutorials, run the sample applications, or develop EAServer applications, you must start the preconfigured Jaguar server.

NoteThese procedures start the preconfigured server with the default configuration, which is adequate for running the tutorials. There are many other options for server start-up not discussed here, such as selecting a different Java virtual machine or running EAServer as a Windows service. For these details and more, see “Starting the server” in the EAServer System Administration Guide.


Starting servers on Windows platforms

You can start the server from the command line or using the Start button.

StepsUsing the Start button

  1. Select Start | Programs | Sybase | EAServer 5.1 | Jaguar Server.

  2. The server starts and runs in a console window.

StepsUsing the command line

  1. Change to the EAServer bin subdirectory, and run the serverstart command. For example:

    c:
    cd \Program Files\Sybase\EAServer\bin
    start serverstart
    
  2. The server starts and runs in a new console window. To run the server in the same window as your command prompt, omit start from the command.


Starting the server on UNIX platforms

Start the server from the command line.

StepsStarting the server

  1. Change to the EAServer bin directory, and run serverstart.sh. For example:

    cd /opt/Sybase/EAServer/bin
    serverstart.sh
    

    The server starts and runs as a foreground process in the current console window. To start the server in a separate window, specify the -xterm option. For example:

    cd /opt/Sybase/EAServer/bin
    serverstart.sh -xterm
    

    The server starts in a new xterm terminal window. X Windows must be installed and configured to use this option. In other words, the xterm command must successfully launch a terminal window in the shell where you start the server.
