Now that KIM has started successfully, you are ready to populate the basic KIM corpus and test its functionality.

For this purpose KIM uses a tool called Populater. It is located in <KIM_HOME>/bin/tools/. The tool can run in a graphical (interactive) or console (non interactive) mode.

  • In Graphical User Interface (GUI) mode, open: <KIM_HOME>/bin/tools/populater.cmd or type
    in a console.
  • In a console mode, type:
    In this mode, the configuration is read from the populater.xml file in the config folder (<KIM_HOME>/config/populater.xml).

When you start the Populater for the first time, the default corpus directory will be automatically selected in the file selection box. After you populate some documents in KIM, they will appear in the web UI. After you start your servlet container, the web UI should be available on the computer hosting KIM at the following address: http://localhost:8080/KIM.

See the complete Populater documentation for more details.
