The Servoy All-In-One installer is capable of installing both the Servoy Application Server and Servoy Developer.
This chapter describes the process of installing the Servoy Application Server. For information on the installation of Servoy Developer, refer to the Developer User Guide.
The All-In-One installer requires the target environment to have a Graphical User Interface in order to run the installer. For environments without a GUI, see Performing an Unattended Installation.
Choosing the Correct Installer
The Servoy All-In-One installer comes in 2 variations:
- The cross platform installer (.jar)
- The Windows executable installer (.exe)
The cross platform installer can also be used on the Windows platform, but some virus scanners block the execution of
.jar files. Therefore, the Windows executable installer is provided as alternative.
Running the Installer
To start the installation, execute the installer. Depending on the platform, either double click the
servoy_installer.jar or execute the following through the command line or terminal window:
When double clicking, the cross platform installer may open the
servoy_installer.jar as an archive file instead of an executable, because the
.jar extension may not be configured to be opened with Java. Either use the command line option, use the platform's Open with option or configure the platform to open
.jar files using Java.
Stepping Through the Installer
Step 1 - Welcome Page
When the installer opens, the screenshot below will represent itself. Click Next to continue.
Step 3 - License Agreement

Step 4 - Installation Location
The following screen allows the installer to set the location where the Servoy Application Server will be installed. If required, provide a different location and click Next to continue.
The user under which the Servoy Application Server will run requires read/write access rights on the directory in which the Servoy Application Server is installed.
Step 5 - Options
The following screen allows the specification of which optional packs to include in the installation.
For a Servoy Application Server only installation, uncheck the Developer and Example Files packs.
When the installation does not require PostgreSQL for either the Servoy Repository or solution data, or when the PostgreSQL engine is already installed, uncheck the Database pack. Check the Installing on Existing Databases chapter for more information when unchecking this pack.
When the Servoy Application Server needs to run as a service under the operating system, check the Application Server Service pack.
