Install Java JDK 11

You can choose between Oracle JDK, OpenJDK or AdoptOpenJDK

Oracle JDK

Go to the Oracle Java download site and select to download the Java Developer Kit (JDK) 11, latest update.

When the file has been downloaded, execute it to install Java on your system using the setup wizard.

OpenJDK

You can download the OpenJDK (free) version from the following site: https://openjdk.java.net/
Just keep in mind that LogicalDOC starting from version 8.3.4 requires JDK 11. You should avoid newer versions because LogicalDOC has non been tested yet on those.

You should wait until you see a message on the console similar to the one shown below

INFO: Server startup in 8423 ms
  • Restart Tomcat for the 2nd time
  • Wait that the startup complete
  • On a client browser, open the URL http://localhost:8080/logicaldoc/.
  • You should see under the login form a triangle of warning, click on the link to the right to activate the setup procedure
  • Perform the LogicalDOC Setup procedure using admin/admin as username/password in order to access the protected setup section
  • Define a folder (on the filesystem) to use for the document repository (in some systems it may be necessary in advance the creation of the folder setting the correct write privileges)
  • Select the type of database to use, the fastest procedure is to select the internal database (of course you can decide to use a more efficient database, the only thing is that you first need to proceed to the creation of a database schema)
