Introduction & pre-requisites


This README contains instructions on how to build and/or run the software.

Building is relevant only if you have the source code. If you only have the pre-built ZIP package, then you can skip the building part.

For running the software, you will need the following software components installed on your machine:

  • A 32-bit version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 or 7
  • MySQL database server 5.0 or 5.1. It must be running and there must be at least an empty database named “natura2000”.

Building a distributable package on Windows

  • Download and install Inno Setup from (NB! Be sure to install also the Inno Setup Preprocessor that the installer suggests).
  • Add the Inno Setup root path where iscc.exe resides to Windows system environment PATH variable.
  • Copy a JRE to [project folder]/jre NB! The JRE must be 32-bit!


mvn -Dmaven.test.skip=true clean install

An installer exe file named SDFManagerSetup_v[ver no].exe will be created in the project root directory

Installing the tool

  • The intallation package does not contain database installation. Mysql 5.1 has to be installed separately.
  • The intaller asks you some configuration-related questions:
    • The mode you wish to run the tool in (i.e. Natura 2000 or EMERALD)
    • The host name, port, user and password of your MySQL database mentioned in the pre-requisites above.
