This page describes the current status of the NeuroLOG middleware prototype. It gives installation and configuration instructions.
The software is distributed in the following archive:
This version was tested under linux only.
The archive unpacks in two sub directories:
bincontains services startup scripts
distcontains the program jar archive and its dependencies
The archive is meant to be unpacked in the HOME directory of a regular user under whom ID the NeuroLOG services will execute. It is recommended, although not mandatory, to create a specific user account. On installation the software will create extra directories, in particular
~/.neurolog for writing configuration files and
~/log for writing services logs.
The software is currently composed of 3 main services:
bin directory contains 3 facility scripts to start each of these services:
bin/nlog_registryfor the NeuroLOG Registry service;
bin/nlog_serverfor the NeuroLOG Site Server; and
bin/nlog_clientfor the NeuroLOG client.
Note that if the
dist directory is not deployed in the HOME directory of the user, the
nlog_* scripts need to be edited to change the second line (JAR variable containing the path to the main NeuroLOG jar file inside the dist directory). The first line (Java VM location may also need to be updated depending on your installation.
