Deploying the Open Bidder UI

Previous step

Before you can deploy the Open Bidder UI on your server, make sure you have completed the previous steps:

You will use the Open Bidder UI to set up your project and to launch bidders.

Update your application ID

The first task is to update the App Engine configuration with your App Engine application identifier. This value is stored in open-bidder-ui/src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/appengine-web.xml in the <application> element.

Deploy the UI

To deploy the UI or update an existing UI, run the following command from the Open Bidder project's root directory:

mvn -pl open-bidder-ui appengine:update

Access the Open Bidder UI

Now go to your application's App Engine hostname to begin using the Open Bidder UI. The home screen should look like Figure 1.
