[edit] Trying out Virgo

First download the virgo tomcat server and unpack the downloaded archive to a directory, which we will refer to as $SERVER_HOME, ensuring there are no spaces in the path of the directory. On Windows unzip to a directory, which we will refer to as %SERVER_HOME%, again ensuring there are no spaces in the path of the directory. We recommend 7zip for unpacking on Windows as the built-in zip extraction utility sometimes fail to unpack reliably.

Then start the Virgo web server. On Unix, issue the following commands from a shell:

>cd $SERVER_HOME
>bin/startup.sh

On Windows, issue the following commands in a command prompt:

>cd %SERVER_HOME%
>bin\startup.bat

Virgo should issue event log messages like this:

You can then log in to the Virgo admin console (user "admin", password "springsource"). You should see the welcome panel of the admin console:
admin console welcome panel

You can then examine the features of the admin console. For example, you can explore the artifacts currently installed by clicking on the Artifacts pane and expanding some of the sections marked with '+' signs:

admin console artifacts pane

If you want to try deploying a bundle, drop it into the pickup directory:

org.eclipse.virgo.web-server/build-web-server/target/package-expanded/virgo-web-server-<version>/pickup

For example, if you download the trivial test application helloweb.war and drop it into the pickup directory, the following event log messages are displayed:

[2010-06-04 11:25:49.528] fs-watcher                   <DE0000I> Installing bundle 'helloweb' version '0.0.0'.

and you can then invoke the application or inspect it in the admin console:
