The FlexDeploy Virtual Machine provides fully configured and executable samples, enabling users to examine the features and use as reference for full implementation.
Download and Install Oracle VirtualBox from https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads. Next steps will explain how to use FlexDeploy OVA image file with VirtualBox. Make sure Virtual Box Extension Pack is also installed.
The steps shown use Oracle VM VirtualBox for the Host, but there are other options. Feel free to use any host capable of importing OVA images. You may need to unzip the file you downloaded before you are able to import it.
Once the virtual machine has started, FlexDeploy tomcat server will also automatically start and you will see screen shown below and you can login using http://localhost:8000/flexdeploy. It takes some time for Tomcat server to start application, so give few minutes before you launch application in browser.
FlexDeploy can be started using start_flexdeploy.sh script as well. Login using flexuser/flexdeploy1 credentials. You can do this on Virtual Box window or using Putty (localhost with port 222).
