I'm starting my studies on LiveCycle and have been dealing with LC Workbench, Output and PDF Generator, as well as Designer and Administration Console and other server and user tools.
Now I'd like to take a look at Mosaic and what types of solutions I can build with it.
I've just downloaded a LC Mosaic trial version but have no idea how to install it. I already have JBoss, MySQL and some LC modules installed - will I need other server software so I can install Mosaic?
On the same page where you download Mosaic, there is a link to the Installation instructions.
Basically to install all you do is unzip mosaic onto your hard drive. It comes with a Standalone server so there are no other dependencies.
Once you unzip, follow the directions to start the DB and the Server. Also, in the Bin|Release folder you will find an Air app. This will give you easy access to running the Mosaic Samples.
Once you have everything running and the samples working you can look at the Creating Your First Mosaic application doc. Plan on dedicating some time in order to get acclimated.
Let me know if you run into any issues.
