jWebSocket Server as Windows Executable

This section describes how to use the jWebSocket Server Executable for Windows Systems. This topic will be interesting for you when you are a developer and intend to develop new client software based upon the jWebSocket Server. The executables are wrappers around the various jWebSocket .jar files including an icon for the desktop and using all required libraries of an existing jWebSocket installation. The jWebSocket Windows executable can easily be started with a double click from the Windows Desktop without further installation or special configuration.

Like all normal desktop applications the jWebSocket Server Executable is terminated when you log off the system. Thus for production systems it is recommended to use either the jWebSocket Windows Service or the jWebSocket Web Application.


Before you run the jWebSocket Windows Executable please ensure that you have a working jWebSocket Server installation as described here.

Download, Installation and Start

Please follow the following steps to use the jWebSocket Windows Executable:

  1. Depending on the processor architecture of your system either download the jWebSocketServer32-<version>.zip or jWebSocketServer64-<version>.zip from the bundles section in the download area.
  2. Unpack the .zip archive with the jWebSocketServer32/64-<version>.exe into the /bin folder of your existing jWebSocket installation (e.g. c:\program files\jWebSocket-<version>\bin).
  3. Double click the jWebSocketServer32/64-<version>.exe and the Server will immediately start:

  4. If you like you can easily create a shortcut to the executable on the Windows Desktop or the Windows Shortcut Bar and start it directly from there.
  5. Because the jWebSocket Windows Executables do not open a console window the log output per default is written to the jWebSocket.log file in the /logs folder below the jWebSocket root.
