Prior to Installation:
Before installing ServletExec version 4.1.1 you must first install a
JDK (Java Development Kit) or a JRE (Java Runtime Environment) version 1.3.1. The JDK 1.3.1 can be freely downloaded from Sun's Website.
The JRE 1.3.1 can be found on the ArcIMS 4.0 installation CD. The ArcIMS setup program will install JRE 1.3.1 if it does not detect JDK or JRE 1.3.1 on your computer.
Note: JRE is not needed if JDK 1.3.x is installed on the computer. Another term for JDK is SDK (Software Development Kit).
Esri also requires that the installed copy of ServletExec be a fully enabled/licensed* one
prior to installing ArcIMS. (An unlicensed
copy of ServletExec will not be sufficient for running ArcIMS.)
*You may fully enable your free downloaded copy
of ServletExec by:
In either case, the key (registration number) is entered in your browser via the
Administration tool which is included with ServletExec.
- Entering the key that you receive when you
purchase a ServletExec license.
- Obtaining a 30-day evaluation key for free, and entering it.
See step 'b' below for specific information explaining how to enter your key after you have
installed and tested ServletExec.
