Installing on macOS
RaptorXML Server is available for installation on macOS systems. Its installation and setup procedure is described below.
Integration with FlowForce
If you are installing RaptorXML Server together with FlowForce Server, it is recommended that you install FlowForce Server first. If you install RaptorXML Server before FlowForce Server, then, after having installed both RaptorXML Server and FlowForce Server, run the following command:
cp /usr/local/Altova/RaptorXMLServer2023/etc/*.tool /usr/local/Altova/FlowForceServer2023/tools
This command copies the .tool file from /etc directory of RaptorXML Server to the FlowForce Server /tools directory. The .tool file is required by FlowForce Server. It contains the path to the RaptorXML Server executable. You do not need to run this command if you install FlowForce Server before installing RaptorXML Server.
Uninstall RaptorXML Server
Before uninstalling RaptorXML Server, stop the service with the following command:
sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.altova.RaptorXMLServer2023.plist
To check whether the service has been stopped, open the Activity Monitor in Finder and make sure that RaptorXML Server is not in the list.In the Applications folder in Finder, right-click the RaptorXML Server icon and select Move to Trash. The application will be moved to Trash. You will, however, still need to remove the application from the usr folder. Do this with the following command:
sudo rm -rf /usr/local/Altova/RaptorXMLServer2023/
If you need to uninstall an old version of Altova LicenseServer, you must first stop it running as a service. Do this with the following command:
sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.altova.LicenseServer.plist
To check whether the service has been stopped, open the Activity Monitor in Finder and make sure that LicenseServer is not in the list. Then proceed to uninstall in the same way as described above for RaptorXML Server.
