JasperReports Server requires an application server. The installer is configured to run with the Apache Tomcat server. When you run the installer, two options appear on Setup — Please select the Tomcat configuration you want to use:
|•||I want to use the bundled Tomcat|
If you choose this option, the installer puts an instance of Tomcat 8 onto your system. Later, after choosing a bundled or existing database, you're prompted for the server port and shutdown port Tomcat will use. You can accept the default values or enter alternate values.
|•||I want to use an existing Tomcat|
If you have an instance of Tomcat on your system, you can choose this option. Later, after choosing a bundled or existing database, you're prompted for the location of Tomcat.
|•||Browse to the folder where you installed Tomcat.|
After selecting a PostgreSQL configuration, you're prompted for Tomcat's server port and shutdown port. Accept the default values or enter alternate values.
