The complete knowledge base about ARender - How to install it and how to configure it as needed

Pre-configuration

Here we will make the rendition server reachable from the presentation server.

By default, ARender war will search the Rendition server locally. This will only work if you place your server Rendition on the same server as the front-end server.

There are many ways to link and we will see here the most durable way.

  • In the machine that will contain the presentation server, place a folder named ARenderConfiguration in the home directory of the user starting the presentation server.
  • In your ARenderConfiguration folder, place a file suffixed by -custom-client-server.properties. This way, it’s automatically picked up by ARender, read more about this in the complete documentation of the configuration.

If we consider your rendition server to be at the hostname “renditionHost”, here is what your file should contain:

~/ARenderConfiguration/{name}-custom-client-server.properties
arender.server.rendition.hosts=http://renditionHost:8761/
