Denodo installation requirements and bootstrapping section

hello this is about the Installation of Denodo 7.0 on a Virtual Machine (called Parallels, that is windows 8.1 32bits on a Mac). Being not a developer at all I have some issues to understand all requirements. I have downloaded Denodo7.0 and jdk 8u221 and Denodo tutorial files under the "Mydocuments" directory of the Mac in a directory called DENODO_HOME. Then I created a directory lib-external and then jdbc-drivers and then mysql-5 one as child directories of each other below DENODO_HOME . I downloaded mysql 8.0.17 in the directory "mysql-5"...Is all this correct? When I unzip the mysql8.0.17 then some directories appear but I don't know what to launch afterwards. What is the MysqlWorkbench application? AFter that how will I recognise the Mysql server please? Actually, I have not downloaded the SQL connector it is true (here http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/j/) as it says on the Mysql download page that the 8..17 product contains everything... so I created the directory under the name "jdbc-drivers" but it might be wrong and also I did not download the Workbench either as it says it is not necessary for the tutorial. My mistake I guess? Sorry I am not familiar with that, could you detail the process please?

Hi, For your case, I would ensure the prerequisites mentioned in the following steps were performed before proceeding with the installation task of Denodo 7.0: * Downloading the necessary software from the [**Installation Link.**](https://community.denodo.com/tutorials/browse/basics/1install_index) Choose the generic version of the Denodo Express installer (without JRE). * Secondly, downloading the Java 1.8 and setting up the JAVA_HOME and PATH variable by following the [**JAVA_HOME**](https://community.denodo.com/answers/question/details?questionId=9060g0000000BJRAA2&title=java+error+on+Denodo+install) link. Once the above 2 steps were verified, run the install.sh script. The path where the installation is pointed to is called the “<DENODO_HOME>” path. In the demo example from the community document this relates to “**C: Denodo\7.0\**”. On a successful installation, the folder “<DENODO_HOME>\lib-external\jdbc-drivers\mysql-5” would be automatically created. This would be the location where the MySql jdbc driver has to be placed. By now only step 1 in the [**Installation**](https://community.denodo.com/tutorials/browse/basics/1install1denodo) link would have been completed. Following steps 2 and 3 mentioned in the [**Installation**](https://community.denodo.com/tutorials/browse/basics/1install1denodo) link will complete the MySQL side of the installation. MySqlWorkbench application is a client editor tool used to connect to MySql database and execute queries. Step 3 in the above link details how to use it. Note that the Denodo Control Center links to launch the apps does not work on MacOS, so you should use the shell scripts present in <DENODO_HOME>/bin to start/stop the Denodo server and launch the Virtual DataPort Administration tool. Hope this helps!

Dear Denodo Team, thanks a lot for your kind answer. Actually I am using a Windows 8.1 Virtual MAchine (soft called Parallels) on the Mac, is that OK? I have downloaded Denodo 7.0 and not the express one without JRE. I have dowloaded jdk 8u221 and set the JAVA_HOME variable to the following value (the path to the directory where I stored the downloaded file and unzipped it): \\Mac\Home\Documents\Odysseus\FORMATION\DENODO_HOME\jdk-8u221-windows-i586-demos.zip\jdk1.8.0_221 Is that OK?
