Test Self-Service


Start Self-Service

Start your servlet container. For example, if using a typical Apache Tomcat setup, you will use either startup.bat or from the <tomcat home>/bin directory.

After the servlet container has started, you should see the following on the servlet container's console or in the log file:


Navigate to http://<your server>:<port>/<app name>/general/helloworld.html to see a "Hello World" screen. In Self-Service, the page is called the uAchieve Self-Service Installation Verification page and is located under the menu bar cog ()<Help in the upper right side of the page (under the user name):

The uAchieve Self-Service Installation Verification page serves as a tool to help verify your Self-Service installation in several categories:

  • Configuration Verification
