Two Methods of Installation
Welcome to the Activiti BPM Suite installation module, presented by Alfresco University. In this module, we’re going to discuss how to install and activate Activiti 1.4.
There are two methods of installing Activiti. The first involves using the Alfresco Activiti Installer, which is a simple, step-by-step installer program that walks you through the installation process.
In Lesson 1, we’ll take you through this process and show you how to download and apply your Activiti license file.
In Lesson 2, we’ll explore the second (and more advanced) method of installing Activiti. If you choose, you can do this using two Web Application Archive files (or “WAR” files). This allows you to use your own web application container and database, if you decide that method meets your unique needs.
In Lesson 3, we’ll go over how to quickly start and stop your Alfresco server, which will also start and stop Activiti.And finally, in Lesson 4, we’ll verify that our installation was successful by starting up Alfresco and logging in to the Activiti BPM Suite. By the end of this module, you should know how to install Activiti via two different methods, how to start and stop your server, how to configure multiple tenants post-install, and how to verify that your installation was successful.
