There are two portions to Connect Daily. The first is the portion that runs on a server. The second is the client computer which just requires a supported browser.

The server portion of Connect Daily requires four components. They are:

  • Operating System
  • Java SDK or JRE 1.7 or higher
  • Java Servlet Container (Free Servlet Container available)
  • Supported Database

Java SDK or Java Runtime Environment

Since Connect Daily is a Java Servlet application, it requires a Java SDK or Java Runtime Engine version 1.6 or higher.

You can download Java from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/index.html.

If you do not see a Java SDK for your operating system at the Oracle Java site, contact your operating system vendor.

Database Requirements for Porting

Connect Daily is highly portable across SQL implementations. It can be ported to any database that supports the following features:

If your database meets the features listed above but is not currently supported, please contact MH Software, Inc. We can create a custom port for you. Generally, porting to a new database will take a developer about 4-6 hours.

Java Servlet Container

Connect Daily requires a Java Servlet Specification 2.4 or higher compliant servlet container. If you do not have a servlet engine, we recommend the open source servlet engine Apache Tomcat.

The servlet engine can run on the same machine as your web server and can usually be configured so that requests to your web server for the calendar are forwarded to the servlet engine.
