In This Chapter


In order to run a solution in a true client, the solution must be deployed in a running Application Server.  

To start an Application Server, see Installing and Running the Servoy Application Server.

To get the solution loaded into the Application Server, see Exporting a Solution from Servoy Developer and Importing a Solution into the Application Server.

Accessing the Application Server

Assuming the Application Server is already running, it can accessed through a web browser via the default URL: http://localhost:8080.

Accessing the Server through a Firewall

For allowing access through a firewall, one must allow TCP traffic on ports 8080 and 1099 in order for the Application Server to connect properly. 

Running a Solution

A solution can be ran from the Application Server in either Smart Client or Web Client.

Running a Smart Client

To run a solution in the Smart Client:

  1. Open a web browser and enter the server URL, including port number.  A client launch page will appear.
  2. Click on the icon. The client launch process will begin.


    If Java Runtime Environment is not installed on the computer, it can be installed by clicking on the link at the bottom of the client launch screen. This link will also verify that JRE is installed as well.

  3. When prompted, select the desired solution to be opened.
  4. The solution will open in the Smart Client.
