Install gCore

In order to install D4Science Portal, you need to install gCore. You can download the last version of gCore from here.

Install Tomcat

If there is no tomcat installation on your node, you need to download and install it. We sugest that you use tomcat v. 5.0.x or 5.5.x. You can download tomcat from here.

Setup Tomcat

In order to enable tomcat to consume WSRF services, you have to apply some changes on tomcat's files:

  1. modify $CATALINA_HOME/bin/setclasspath.sh => Remove the line where the classpath is reset (CLASSPATH=)
  2. add the [ http://software.d4science.research-infrastructures.eu/tomcatJars/mail.jar | mail.jar] in $CATALINA_HOME/commons/endorsed

Applications Needed

Apache Tomcat 5.5.26. You also need to download a org.postgresql.Driver (download jdbc driver from http://jdbc.postgresql.org/).

Install the GS Portal

You may want to follow instructions from http://www.gridsphere.org/

You should also place the required JDBC driver jar file in the $CATALINA_HOME/common/lib directory of Tomcat.

First Run Of the Portal

GS will ask you to decide which database you want to make it using. D4Science is going to use a centralized PostgreSQL DB. Ask me directly for its location and connection data.

Changing Gridsphere DB Location once portal is installed

You should stop Tomcat, change the file located in $portaluser/.gridsphere/database/hibernate.properties Startup Tomcat

For info on the Authorative LDAP DB please refer to the next section in this guide.
