Starting the Server
CData Sync is built on top of an application framework that provides web services, authentication, encryption, and automation facilities. You can host the Sync web application on any web server that is based on Windows or Java. Both the Java and .Net Editions include a stand-alone server, so no external server is required to host the application.
The Java Edition comes bundled with a web server, built on top of Eclipse Jetty, to support simple cross-platform deployment. This stand-alone web server is launched by running the sync.jar file, which is located in the installation directory.
In Windows, CData Sync is installed as a service by default. To access the application, you must first ensure that the service is running. Once the service is running, you can access the CData Sync admin console by opening a web browser and entering http://localhost:8181/ in the URL field.
After you install CData Sync to a location of your choice, you can either run install Sync as a service or run the application manually. CData recommends using a service if you use Sync for critical applications.
To start CData Sync without creating a service, use the terminal to open the sync.jar file in the installation directory, as shown here:
java -jar sync.jar
In addition, Sync provides a service.sh script that you can use to set up a systemd or init.d service on Linux systems.
Java Edition: Provides step-by-step deployment information for running Sync on several major Java web servers in a Linux environment.
The .Net Edition of Sync comes with an embedded web server. Like the Java Edition, the .Net Edition is also installed as a Windows Service by default. To access the application, you must first ensure that the service is running. Once the service is running, you can access the CData Sync admin console by opening a web browser and entering http://localhost:8019/ in the URL field.
.Net-Edition: Provides information about configuring the embedded server and hosting Sync to run on (IIS).
