Startup and Shutdown

Before starting App Studio, verify that Fusion Server is running and that it has one or more collections of indexed data.

Run App Studio at the command line from the app-studio directory, like this:

Unix Windows

./ start

  • --production

  • --extraJvmArguments

    Space character-delimited additional JVM arguments; multiple arguments must be quoted. Example: "-Xms2G -Xmx5G"

  • -p/--port

    The port on which to run the server.

  • -s/--stop-port

    The port to use when issuing the stop command; must be re-specified when running stop.

Get the server status

./ status

Starting and stopping multiple App Studio instances

You can run multiple instances of App Studio on a single host by specifying different ports for all instances. You do that on startup, at the command line, using the -p flag:

./ start -p 9000

You can also use the -p flag to indicate the specific instance of App Studio to shut down:

./ stop -p 9000

Starting in production mode

App Studio’s standalone mode can be used for small production deployments, by starting in production mode.

Production mode disables the configuration wizard and the code editor.

To use standalone mode in a production environment, start App Studio with the --production flag:

./ start --production
