Installing Hybris

At ASICS, we’re now running the Hybris e-commerce platform (recently purchased by SAP) on and soon on other country sites across the world.

In order to get the most out of the platform, I’m learning all I can about it, and that means installing it on my laptop… First time playing with a Java application.

First step was to get the Java Development Kit (JDK) installed, because the Java Runtime Environment (JRE, aka Oracle Java, which you get from “installing Java” on isn’t setting the proper environment variables and the command-line version of Java is Apple’s own 1.6 (whereas Hybris requires 1.7).

Total time: 3 minutes 5 seconds

And now…

Aug 27, 2013 5:55:28 PM org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina start
INFO: Server startup in 164638 ms

Hah, it worked:

FINISHED. The initialization took: 0d 00h:40m:37s:781ms

Gosh, I might need something a bit more sturdy than a MacBook Air.

Might seem obvious to everyone, but to stop the application:

./ stop

I might continue posting as things progress…
