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. (See the the DeveloperStartPage if you want to build a custom war.)

Note: there is an online Demo


  • Java servlet, we currently use Tomcat-5.5.
  • 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)


  • 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.
  • Restart Tomcat if required.
  • Login with the user name "admin" and password "pass".
