There are two ways to get gnuMims running:

  1. Download the war file and deploy to a Java Servlet (see bellow).
  2. Download the source code, build and run with Grails.

Note: there is an online Demo


  • Java servlet, we currently use tomcat5.5.
  • Sun java sdk, we currently use "1.5.0_17" (Debian Lenny: sun-java5-jdk).
  • Database
    • The war is built to use an in memory database (hsqldb), this will NOT save data between restarts!
    • Most databases can be used, we currently use MySQL (Debian Lenny: mysql-server-5.0)
  • See the the DeveloperStartPage if you want to build a custom war.


  • Copy the war file into the [$TOMCAT_HOME]/webapps folder or choose to upload through the Tomcat online console.
  • Point your web browser to http://localhost:8180/gnuMims/ or http://myserver:port/gnuMims .
  • Sign on with the user name "admin" and password "pass"
  • Start using gnuMims.
