We have done many projects where we needed the ability to have both the server and the client run off the same machine. Operations always wants the project to run on start-up. Linking to the java shortcut doesn’t work, because the service has not started yet.
My solution is this jar file. Place it in your shortcut folder, or make it run when the window manager starts for Linux. When the file initially runs, it will create a file called launch.properties. Edit this to suit your environment.
The file will need the following properties
launchJar=Path to launch.jar. Will try to find it in default locations, but you can edit this if you have a non-standard install
httpsPort=HTTPS port of Ignition service
host=Hostname of Ignition server, either as a hostname or IPv4 address.
project=The project name
httpPort=HTTP port of Ignition service
Any suggestions, please let me know.
