This guide will walk you through connecting to the Brooklyn Server Graphical User Interface and performing various tasks.
This guide assumes that you are using Linux or Mac OS X and that Brooklyn Server will be running on your local system.
Launch Apache Brooklyn
If you haven't already done so, you will need to start Brooklyn Server using the commands shown below.
It is not necessary at this time, but depending on what you are going to do, you may wish to set up some other configuration options first,
Now start Brooklyn with the following command:
$ cd apache-brooklyn-1.1.0-SNAPSHOT $ bin/brooklyn launch
Please refer to the Server CLI Reference for details of other possible command line options.
Brooklyn will output the address of the management interface:
INFO Starting Brooklyn web-console with no security options (defaulting to no authentication), on bind address
INFO Started Brooklyn console at http://127.0.0.1:8081/, running classpath://brooklyn.war@ INFO Persistence disabled INFO High availability disabled INFO Launched Brooklyn; will now block until shutdown command received via GUI/API (recommended) or process interrupt.
Notice! Before launching Apache Brooklyn, please check the
date on the local machine.
Even several minutes before or after the actual time could cause problems.
Connect with Browser
Next, open the web console on http://127.0.0.1:8081. No applications have been deployed yet, so the "Create Application" dialog opens automatically.
The next section will show how to deploy a blueprint.
