Starting Corticon Server for Java

When you installed Corticon Server, it deployed into Progress Application Server during installation by pre-loading Corticon Server's axis.war file into its webapps directory:
Then, when you start the Corticon Server for the first time, it unpacks axis.war, and creates a new axis directory inside \webappsThis new folder contains the complete Corticon Server web application.
Note: If you intend to install Corticon Server on a web server other than the bundled Progress Application Server, refer to the Integration & Deployment Guide for details on using the standard axis.war package in your preferred web server.

1. Start Corticon Server from the Windows Start menu by choosing All Programs > Progress > Corticon 5.7 > Start Corticon Server

Note: The Start menu command to Start Corticon Server launches the script [CORTICON_HOME]\Server\bin\startServer.bat to set the Corticon environment and the Java options before starting the Progress Progress Application Server (PAS). You should never directly launch the PAS startup script or the TCMAN server action as that will skip these crucial settings.
