 java -jar bot-bot-server-standalone.jar


This will start the standalone bot-bot server. The server can be accessed using the url "http://localhost:8080/index.html".

  • On an servlet supported webserver:

    Bot-bot server can be deployed to any of the servlet container like Apache Tomcat, Jboss, etc.To deploy the war do the following:

    • Create the war as mentioned in the Build the war section.
    • Copy the war from the target folder under the bot-bot/server to the webapps folder of your serrvlet container.
    • Start your server.
    • Access the server using the following URL
http://<localhost or systemip>:<port>/bot-bot-server/index.html


Note: In case you are deploying the war on a servlet container server. You need update the "SERVER_NAME" under the recorder.properties file in the "recorder" section. The recorder is currently configured to record on the standalone bot-bot server deployment.
