Apache - Continuum - Installation

Apache Continuum is a continuous integration tool.

You can download a copy on the official webpage of Apache Continuum:
http://continuum.apache.org/

Or with one of mirrors with this Apache mirrors' page:

Installation of Apache Continuum on Windows

We will take the apache-continuum-1.4.0-bin.zip version.

It will be installed by the console with the JVM.
And of course, you need a JDK, who do not have it?

I extracted all files, from the .ZIP, in this directory:
C:\soft\apache\continuum-1.4.0.

I suggest to change the port to reach your Continuum application.
To change it, open this file:
C:\soft\apache\continuum-1.4.0\conf\jetty.xml

And at line 69, there will be something like this:

<Set name="port"><SystemProperty name="jetty.port" default="8080"/></Set>

So I suggest there to change the 8080 port by 8090 for example.

OK, now go in this directory:
C:\soft\apache\continuum-1.4.0

And I write with the cmd tool (or the shell of your choice):

$ .\continuum.bat console

Normally you will have some lines like this:

If you have no error, then your Jetty server is running and you can reach the address of your Continuum instance:
http://localhost:8090/continuum/

Good job, it is installed! laugh
