First run (JOSF 1.4 and below)
After installing JOSF, keep your PowerShell open and head over to
C:\Program Files\JOSF by typing the following command:
cd 'C:\Program Files\JOSF'
After that, you can start JOSF by executing the
start.ps1 command by typing the following command:
JOSF is successfully started, when these messages are shown:
Starting josf-actionpack-x.x log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (io.netty.util.internal.logging.InternalLoggerFactory). log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly. log4j:WARN See http://logging.apache.org/log4j/1.2/faq.html#noconfig for more info. feb 07, 2018 9:10:05 AM io.vertx.core.Starter INFO: Succeeded in deploying verticle
Any warnings displayed here are nothing to worry about. Just some notion that the logger can be configured.
Remember: always keep this PowerShell window open, as it serves as a console and JOSF will shutdown when you close it.
Login to JOSF
When JOSF started successfully, open your favourite web browser, and navigate to http://localhost/josf. This will open the front-end of JOSF. To login, use the credentials as shown below.
Turn JOSF off
After a day of testing and dancing, you'd want to shut down JOSF by going back to the PowerShell window and pressing
CTRL + c key combination. This will gracefully shut down JOSF and all sub-processes that it started with. Note: It is possible that it will start a browser and load an empty webpage. Don't worry, this means that it also shutdown the Selenium Server nodes and hub.
