The following sections demonstrate the steps of the installation process for Local API installation.
Installation using GUI
After seeing the welcome screen and accepting the license agreement, the next screen shows the components to install. For Install Manager to work, the Loqate Java API is required.
*note, if you scroll down, you should deselect the US sample data if you're already a licensed user of US data or plan on downloading it, if you install the sample data here then when you run the install manager later it won't overwrite the data with the full US dataset.
The next step is to select a folder to install the Local API. If Install Manager was selected as a component to install, then a local copy of Java Run time Environment will be installed in addition to InstallManager.jar and a script or a batch file (InstallManager.bat for Windows and InstallManager.sh for Linux/Unix platforms) for running Install Manager. The Java Runtime Environment will be installed locally so there will be no effect on the system settings in the target machine.
Installation using the Command Line Interface
On Linux/Unix platforms, the preferred method of installation is using the command line interface.
When selecting components, if Install Manager is selected, then the Java API is also installed.
If Install Manager is selected as a component to install, the installer will install a local copy of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) as well. This is needed to run Install Manager. This local copy of JRE will not affect any system settings on the target machine.
