Step 7: Start the Server

Now it’s time to test the application. The application can be tested either by creating a war package and deploying on a tomcat server or by using the embedded tomcat server.

Run the application

The embedded server is easiest way to run the application during development.

Run the following command in terminal:

$ ./gradlew tomcatRun

or you can use the axelor shell utility like this:

$ axelor run

See axelor help run for more details on the run command.

After a few seconds, you should see some logs and at the end something like this:

Started Tomcat Server
The Server is running at http://localhost:8080/axelor-demo
