* *Server:* Those users wishing to use GraphDB-Lite via the Sesame Server, with or without the Sesame Workbench, should proceed with one of the two approaches detailed in this section. This will cover installing Sesame and integrating GraphDB-Lite in to the Sesame framework, so that GraphDB-Lite can be used as a plug-in repository type. This approach involves deploying Sesame/GraphDB-Lite via a servlet server, such as Tomcat. The Sesame installation comes with a useful 'workbench' Web application that can be used for many administration tasks.

The rest of this section gives detailed step by step instructions for installing and configuring Sesame and GraphDB-Lite, leading up to the creation of an a GraphDB-Lite repository using the Sesame console (a command line script). For more information please check the "doc" folder of the GraphDB-Lite distribution zip file.

h1. Easy install

GraphDB will normally be built against the latest version of the [Aduna OpenRDF Sesame framework|]. If using GraphDB with this version then the easiest way to deploy an a GraphDB server instance is to copy the re-packaged Sesame Web applications (.war files) in to the Tomcat {{webapps}} directory. These can be found in the {{sesame_owlim}} directory in the GraphDB distribution ZIP file. These Web applications have been modified as follows:

* *openrdf-sesame.war:* The Sesame server application. All GraphDB-Lite and 3{^}rd^ party jar files have been added to this package, so that it can be used immediately after deployment.
* *openrdf-workbench.war:* The GraphDB-Lite jar, XSLT configuration code and an a GraphDB-Lite Turtle configuration file have been added, so that new GraphDB-Lite instances can be created using the Workbench without the need to run the command line console application.

After deployment, an a GraphDB-Lite instance can be created using the workbench application as follows:
* Start a browser and go to the Workbench Web application using a URL of this form: [http://localhost:8080/openrdf-workbench/] \- substituting {{localhost}} and the {{8080}} port number as appropriate.
* Click 'change server' if necessary to select a Sesame server instance if it is running on a different machine. The server URL will be of this form: [http://localhost:8080/openrdf-sesame]
