This section explains how to start an application (Wagby application) built from WagbyDesigner.

"Build" is the process of generating an application that runs from a repository (design information).Let's check the build process and how to start and stop the built application.

Launch WagbyDesignerThen log on.
Select "Build" from the menu.The screen shown in Figure 1 is displayed.Click the "Build Execute" button at the center of the screen.(Since the application has not yet been created, you can not press the "Start Application" button.)

Please select "Full Build" in the first build immediately after installation.You can use "differential build" for the second and subsequent builds.The difference build is faster.

At this stage, the repository (design information) is "empty".An application with the basic functions provided by the system is generated.

If "Backup at build time" in the "Build information" panel is checked, back up the current repository every time you build.You can also leave notes.However, since it consume disk space, please remove this check if unnecessary.

1 Press the "Build Execute" button from the build screen

When the build is completed normally, a folder called "wagbyapp" is created in the folder where you installed Wagby.This is the web application body (generated by the build).

  1. After building, you can press the "start application" button in the center of the screen.Press this to launch the generated application.

  2. Another Tomcat will start (in a minimized state).When checking the window it looks like Figure 4.At the end of the message in this window

    Information: Server startup in XXX ms

    The character is output.Application startup is complete.

  3. After startup, the button in the build screen changes to "application stop".(Do not press this button now.)

    At this time, two Java processes "WagbyDesigner" and "Wagby application" are running on the development machine.As standard, WagbyDesigner uses 4 G memory and Wagby application uses 512 Mbyte memory, so 4.5 Gbyte of memory is required together.
  5. A standard administrative accountadminThen try logging on to the application.(Passwords are also the same.)

  6. Upon successful logon, the menu screen shown in Figure 9 opens.
    Even when not defining an application, some functions including system management functions can be used.

  8. Switch the tab of the Web browser and return to WagbyDesigner.In the screen of Figure 10, press the "Stop Application" button.This concludes the application.
    Figure 11 Stopping the application
The XXX part contains the time (milliseconds) required for startup.
The virus check program may issue a warning at startup.In this case, please allow "Wagby application program" and start the application.
If you can not connect even if you specify localhost, change the localhost part to and try it.
When operating from another machine, the firewall may block access via the LAN.Please change the setting of the firewall and allow operation.

"Application execution" can be performed by pressing the enter key after "Build execution" ends normally.

After "Application startup" is completed normally, you can press "Enter key" again to open "Logon screen".

If you did not operate as described above, please read "Frequently Asked Questions and Answers> Tutorial".
