8. Run the App and Get the Code

Running your application is very simple. First stop (if already started, otherwise skip this part) your Tomcat/TomEE server by using bin/shutdown.bat for Windows OS or bin/shutdown.sh for Linux. Next, download and unzip the ZIP archive file containing all the source code of the application and also the ANT script file which you have to edit and modify the server.folder property value. Now, execute the following command in your console or terminal: ant deploy -Dappname=validationapp. Last, start your Tomcat web server (by using bin/startup.bat for Windows OS or bin/startup.sh for Linux). Please be patient, this can take some time depending on the speed of your computer. It will be ready when the console display the following info: INFO: Initializing Mojarra [some library versions and paths are shonw here] for context '/validationapp'. Finally, open a web browser and type: http://localhost:8080/validationapp/faces/views/books/index.xhtml

You may want to download the ZIP archive containing all the dependency libaries, or run the validation app directly from our server.
