Software requirements, client side

  • Java: JRE 1.6 - 1.8 (needed when using MarvinSketch applet in all browsers, and in Internet Explorer 11 also for the file uploads)
  • Web browser: a recent version of Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, or Internet Explorer 11+
  • ChemDraw 14 or above has to be installed locally (which installs the browser plugins) if chosen as a structure editor   

Hardware requirements, server side

  • Depends mainly on the database size
  • At least 2-4 cores are recommended
  • 4-8 GB RAM or more, at least 3 GB should be provided explicitly for the Tomcat JVM.
  • Cca 500 MB disk space for the application, additional 1 GB during deployment for temporary files; data storage disk space requirements highly depend on the number of structures, approximately 5 GB / 1 M structures

Hardware requirements, client side

  • Standard office hardware that can run Java applets and a modern browser with JavaScript support with a decent performance 
  • At least 4 GB RAM suggested if large (> 10000 structures) SD files are processed during bulk upload
  • Recommended minimum display resolution 1366x768
