9.2. User Client Deployment

Since the software is written in Java it can be deployed on any platform where Java SE 8 or higher is installed, like Microsoft Windows, macOS and GNU/Linux. The User Client software is installed on the server in the /opt/savapage/client/app directory.

Caution

Running the User Client directly from a network share can cause performance problems, resulting in an unresponsive application. Therefore is it recommended to run the client from a local copy.

Note

The User Client is resilient in the event that the connection with the server is (temporarily) lost. The connection will be restored automatically after a short break. If the connection is lost for a longer period of time, the user is notified with a pop-up message with the choice to try again or to close the application.

9.2.1. Deployment on Windows

The savapage-client.bat batch file that starts the application is available in the /opt/savapage/client/app directory on the server.

Note

Make sure to enable Balloon Notification in Windows Group Policy to allow users to see notification messages.

The savapage-client shell script that starts the application is available in the /opt/savapage/client/app directory on the server.

9.2.3. Deployment on GNU/Linux

The savapage-client shell script that starts the application is available in the /opt/savapage/client/app directory on the server.
