If ever you have problem while installing Hemera or third-party tools, check the Troubleshooting page.
If you don't find solution, post a request on the Help Forum.

This page gives information to install Hemera from scratch, if you already have an Hemera version, you should consider upgrading it.

Prepare a Workspace

You should begin preparing a workspace with enough space.
Let's call it HEMERA_ROOT_PATH.

Hemera is compounded of several projects:

  • Hemera: the main project
  • HemeraThirdParty: (since v0.2) third-party structure project (where you will install third-party tools)
  • HemeraTests: containing various tests scripts
  • HemeraWebModule: (since v0.2) the Web Service Module project
  • HemeraSamples: some samples (not included in binary version)
  • various tools project

Get Hemera

Hemera user

You can download Hemera binaries from the SourceForge project site:

  • enter the directory of the version you want
  • download the Hemera-vX.Y.tgz tarball (X.Y corresponding to the version)
  • uncompress it in HEMERA_ROOT_PATH

Hemera developer/contributor


Update Operating System

To setup Hemera (e.g. improving accessibility of Hemera binaries/scripts), launch as root superuser:


To help configuring the whole of Hemera, a global configuration file system has been created.

Copy HEMERA_ROOT_PATH/Hemera/config/hemera.conf.sample to HEMERA_ROOT_PATH/Hemera/config/hemera.conf and adapt it to your configuration.
For each tool, you can:

  • ensure it is available from the PATH environment variable (specifying only the file name of the tool).
  • or update the corresponding configuration element (specifying an absolute path, or a path relative to HEMERA_TP_PATH)

Third-Party tools availability

See Install third-party tools.
Each third-party tool binary path, and data file path are checked when using corresponding core module.
A specific error message will be given in case of failure.
