Required Software

Before map.apps can be installed, Apache Tomcat and Java have to be installed on your system. Supported versions of that software can be found in the system requirements.


To install Java, go to the Java Download page .

Apache Tomcat

At first download Apache Tomcat . If you do not know which file you need, download "32-bit/64-bit Windows Service Installer" for a Windows installation. Further information about the installation process can be found in the Tomcat setup documentation .

If your system environment requires special proxy server settings, these might have to be adjusted in Tomcat as well.


By default a local HSQL database is created in the file system. For production environments it is recommended to install your own database. For more information read the section about database configuration.
