Build and deploy


CloudBeaver is a web server which provides a rich web interface.
It consists of two parts:

  • Server back-end. It is written in Java and reuses "platform" libraries of DBeaver.
  • Front-end part. It is written in TypeScript and JavaScript.

This build process is relatively complicated (and also consists of two parts).

Install prerequisites on Windows:

  • Download and install AdoptOpenJDK
  • Download and extract Maven .
  • Add path to Maven bin folder in system PATH
  • Download and install Node.js. NPM comes along with Node.js, NPX/Lerna will be installed in the build script.
  • Download and install Yarn

If lerna is not installed along with Node.js you can do it manually:

npm install -g lerna

Build and deploy

git clone
cd cloudbeaver/deploy

The final artifacts can be found in deploy/cloudbeaver.

Running server

cd cloudbeaver

By default, the server listens to port 8978 (you can change it in conf/cloudbeaver.conf). So just navigate to http://localhost:8978. You can configure Nginx, Apache or any other web server in front of it.

Note: you must be in the server root directory to run it.
If you need to run it from some other directory, then you can set the environment variable CLOUDBEAVER_HOME to the server root directory.
