Installing HCL Launch

An HCL Launch installation consists of the HCL Launch server, a database, and at least one agent.

About this task

Typically, the server, database, and agents are installed on separate systems, although for a simple evaluation they can all be installed on the same system.
Installing HCL Launch usually involves the following general steps:
  1. Add licenses to the server. For more information about the licenses that are available, see Managing licenses.
  2. If you are using a database other than Apache Derby, install the database before you install the server. See Installing the server database. Apache Derby is appropriate for evaluation installations only. If you choose Apache Derby, the server installation steps install Derby automatically, so you do not need to install it manually.
  3. Install the server. See Installing the server.
  4. Install agent relays. See Installing agent relays.
  5. Install one or more agents. See Installing agents.
  6. Start the server. See Starting and stopping the server.
  7. Optional: Install plug-ins. See Installing plug-ins.
