Install BIMserver on Ubuntu

OK first of all if you have no idea what is BIM,IFC,BIMserver than you should be go for some Google and come again. I am writing a guide to setup BIMserver on Ubuntu.

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk
$ sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jre

Set the “JAVA_HOME” environment variable (If you do not know you can Google it or ask in the comments)

Again come to terminal:

$ wget

$ mkdir BIMserver

$ cp bimserver-1.3.0-FINAL-2014-04-25.jar BIMserver

$ cd BIMserver

$ java -jar bimserver-1.3.0-FINAL-2014-04-25.jar

This will extract the content of the jar file and create two subfolders, i.e. home and bimserver-[version]. Now an application window will open. You have to click on “start server”
Bingo..!! I have not tested it. Let me know(in comments) if you got any problem. Good luck with BIMing. 😉

    Hi Bharat,I wrote it after successful installation of BIM server on my System. Please specify your problem so I can be more helpful and quick in replying.

    The meaning of “I have not tested it” was that I had not played with BIM server at that time.
