Getting the RIB Software


RIB v3.0 requires several applications to be installed prior to installing RIB itself. You will need the following:

1. A database, currently MySQL
2. A servlet container, currently Tomcat
3. JDK

Also on any client machine that will use the RIB Java administration applet, you will need a web browser and the Java plugin. Typically these will already be present.

RIB v3.0 installation instructions are included in the RIB archive and can be viewed at the following link:

Additional information on using RIB, FAQ's and publications are available from the RIB web site:
