Quick Start: Installation
You can install MockMotor in no time.
You need Java installed on the machine. If you don’t have it, download it from here.
No other dependencies - no databases, no external tools and no libraries.
Windows 64 bit
Download MockMotor Installer.
Run the downloaded MockMotor Windows Installer application.
MockMotor work directory will be inside of your user home directory, in
MockMotor Windows Installer only supports Windows 64 bits. If you positively need to install MockMotor on Windows 32 bit, you can install it as JAR. Follow Unix installation instructions adjusting them for Windows platform.
Execute MockMotor application from the Windows menu.
MockMotor will start and open a browser UI. If you do not see it, you can access the UI at http://localhost:7080/console.
Download MockMotor Gzipped Tar into a Linux/Unix machine.
Copy TAR.GZ into a directory of your choice and unpack, for example:
tar xfz mockmotor-LT-1.7.1092.tar.gz
The unpacked files will have this structure:
bin/ startMockMotor.sh stopMockMotor.sh mockmotor-LT.jar data/ logs/ mockmotor.config.xml README.txt
MockMotor configuration file -
mockmotor.config.xml - is located in the root of unpacked directory:
<config xmlns="http://mockengine.ca/config"> <dataDirectory>data</dataDirectory> <httpPort>7080</httpPort> <httpsPort>7081</httpsPort> <logsDirectory>logs</logsDirectory> </config>
Check and update the parameters as required:
|dataDirectory||Location of mocks. Make sure this directory has enough space for your mock responses and mock accounts.||data/ in the current directory.|
|logsDirectory||Location of logs. MockMotor maintains up to 10 log files 10M each.||logs/ in the current directory.|
|httpPort||Plain text HTTP port MockMotor will be listening on.||7080|
|httpsPort||HTTPS port MockMotor will be listening on. If not provided, HTTPS is disabled.||7081|
If Java 1.8+ is not available in the PATH, define JAVA_HOME environment variable to point to Java 1.8+ directory (i.e. the directory one level higher than Java’s bin/ directory).
MockMotor will go into background, and you can access its UI at
The port is of course can be different if you’ve updated the configuration file.
If anything goes wrong, check
logs/mockmotor.log.0 files for any errors:
less bin/nohup.out less logs/mockmotor.log.0
