Installing the Diffusion server using the graphical installer

The Diffusion™ binary files are available from the Push Technology website. You can install Diffusion using the graphical installer.

You must have Oracle® Java™ Development Kit 8 (minimum update 1.8.0_131-b11) installed on your system to install and use Diffusion.

To install Diffusion using the graphical installer, complete the following steps:

  1. Go to the Diffusion download page:
  2. Click on the following download links to download the required jar files into a temporary directory:
    • Diffusion (Diffusion version_id.jar)
    • Installer (install.jar)
  3. In the temporary directory, double-click the install.jar file.
    The graphical installer launches.
  4. Optional: If you have a production license, you can load it into the Diffusion installation at this point.
    You can skip this step if you are using the included development license.
    1. Ensure that the license file is available on your system.
    2. At the Introduction step, select File > Load license file
    3. In the window that opens, navigate to the license file (licence.lic). Click Open.
  5. At the Introduction step, click Continue.
  6. At the License agreement step, select Accept to accept the End User License Agreement (EULA) and click Continue.
  7. At the Destination directory step, select the install destination.
    We recommend you create a Diffusion directory on your system. Click Continue.
  8. At the Select products step, select the components you want to install, then click Continue.
    For a test installation, we recommend you select All. For a production installation, deselect components you do not need (for example, Demos, Deploy demos and Examples).
  9. At the Confirmation step, review the install information. If the information is correct, click Continue to confirm.
    The installer installs Diffusion into the directory specified.
  10. At the Summary step, click Done to exit the graphical installer.
You have successfully downloaded and installed Diffusion.
