AEM jar file doesn't run

FrancoBarresi

Level 2

Hello,
I have a jar file of AEM 6.5. I created the two instances (author and publish) but when I start the jar file the crx quickstart folder is created, with the "logs" folder inside, and an empty "upgrade" notepad file.


It should be noted that before doing this I installed Maven on my pc.

Can anyone help me? I can't start AEM from my pc.

Hi @FrancoBarresi 

 

Please ensure the correct JDK version is installed on the machine.

 

AEM 6.5 supports the following JDK:

  1. Oracle JDK 1.8
  2. Oracle JDK 11
  3. Azul Zulu Open JDK 8
  4. Azul Zulu Open JDK 11

Any other version of JDK will not allow the AEM JAR to run on the machine.

 

Please validate the JDK installation by running the below command:

 

java -version

 

Now navigate to the folder where the AEM JAR file is kept and run the following command to start the instance:

 

java -jar aem-author-p4502.jar

 

Note: Here the AEM Jar file name is aem-author-p4502.jar

 

You should be able to start the application and AEM should be up and running in approx. 4-5 min depending upon the machine configuration.

 

Hope this helps!

 

Thanks!

Hi @FrancoBarresi ,

    Yes,it is showing like that because aem started and then go to the browser and check localhost:4502

Previously it was showing UI as well when we run the AEM using command prompt.

That's strange!

 

Try to rename the file to aem-author-p4502.jar and proceed with installation.

Remove the existing crx-quickstart folder and make sure to have the license file in the same location as of the file.

 

Thanks!

i tried to reboot from command line. The Firewall window appeared, I consented to run Java for public and private networks, after I clicked OK, I got this:

Hi @FrancoBarresi 

Can you also check the permissions for the folders and the user u ran the instances matches?

If you are using double clicking quick start jar,this will not work.

use this command java -jar aem-author-p4502.jar

hello

i'm starting AEM only clicking batch file "quickstart", under the folder bin. But i can't use "author" and "publish" jar file, they don't start. When i click these (author or publish jar file) i see only a folder, inside the new folder quickstart who appears, called "logs" with a file empty named "upgrade". The others files don't appears. 

 

So in this case i can use AEM, in other way. But it's very strange: why i can't use "publish" and "author" files jar, and i can use only the folder quickstart-bin-start with jar file AEM_6.5_Quickstart?

What's meaning "sandbox instance?". So i haven't resolved my question...

Hi @FrancoBarresi 

 

A Sandbox instance is the place to safely develop and test your application changes with low risk. A Sandbox instance type can be your test instance. A Sandbox is typically created to serve the purposes of training, running demos, enablement, or Proof of Concept (POC)s.

However you may duplicate the instance and rename the jar- AEM_6.5_Quickstart to "aem-author-p4502.jar" for author and "aem-publish-p4503.jar" for publish along with the license.properties files in the same folders respectively.

use urls: http://localhost:4502/aem/start.html  for author and http://localhost:4503/content/we-retail/us/en.html for publisher.

 

If you wish to use the batch files , you will need to edit the files accordingly.

So i have edited the start. batch file of publish'folder, changed the port (from 4502 at 4503 ort 8080), changed the name of the jar file, and nothing! Publish doesn't run. But i have executed the author by prompt correctly and it runs!

 

So i might use only author (publish is not so important, i could delete "editor.html" and see the page) but would know why doesn't run.

@FrancoBarresi Both looks identical,

One way to start in publisher is to rename the jar to aem-publish-p4503.jar and double click to generate the crx-quickstart folder , then edit properties in start.bat :

. . .

...

if not defined CQ_PORT set CQ_PORT=4503

 . . .

if not defined CQ_RUNMODE set CQ_RUNMODE=publisher

 . . .

Hello, 

i have modificate the start.bat with and jar file with your suggests, and inside the quickstart file (i have seen this):

 

* TCP port used for stop and status scripts set CQ_PORT=4502"

ad i changed in 4053

 

So this is the result:

 

"IOEX exception

Did not find a server port, tried 4503

Check the system console for more informations"
