Genesis II downloads

  • Genesis II is compatible with Java version 8 (aka version 1.8.x), and is designed to be as self-contained as practical to avoid a complicated installation process. Wherever possible, the Genesis II installation includes embedded, freely-licensed, software products for required 3rd party components. Third party components include Apache Derby Embedded for the database, Jetty for the web server, and Axis for the application server. Currently, the Genesis II installation packages do not require you to download or configure any third party software.

  • Please see the Omnibus Reference for requirements and instructions for installing and configuring your Genesis II distribution.
  • All GenesisII installers are created with install4j, a flexible tool for managing Java and other application installations:
