Redirection Notice

You need three things to check, before starting to install Compound Registration: minimum system requirements, existence of a home directory and if the database is properly set up.

1. Environment

It is assumed that the application server is properly set up with a compatible version of operating system, Java environment, and Apache Tomcat. Please make sure your system meets the minimum requirements to run Compound Registration.

2. Compound Registration home directory

Home directory must be set up using the environment variable REGISTRYCXN_HOME. Since CompReg version 17.06.12-1738 external resources of the registration system will be loaded from the home directory of the application. 

Home directory must be an existing directory with read and write access rights. In case the home directory is not provided - or not meeting the requirements above - the application will start, but the user interface will display an error related to invalid application state. The log will contain the error entry of the exact problem related to the home directory settings. You can specify any location on the disk, but please be sure to specify an absolute path. If Tomcat was running while you defined the environment variable, a restart might be required. 

How to set up the environment variable?

On Unix based systems, type into the command line interface: export REGISTRYCXN_HOME=/Users/johndoe/.chemaxon

On Window, type: SET REGISTRYCXN_HOME=C:/path/to/any/directory

License files

This step is just optional. In the following you will have the opportunity to upload the suitable license file.


License files
 must be located under the directory  $REGISTRYCXN_HOME/licensesIn the case of a missing license file, the logs will contain the error of the problem, and the user interface of the application will display an error upon user login.  

Application properties

Optionally the property file that the application uses can be located at $REGISTRYCXN_HOME/config/registry.properties

3. Database

Prior to starting the application itself, an empty Oracle or MySQL database schema has to be created. A proper database user account has to be created with the appropriate privileges to be able to create, alter tables, indexes, sequences, etc. For the detailed description please visit this page.
