Can I install Jalview on a server?

Looking for the 'Launch Jalview' buttons ?

You need to download an installer to run Jalview 2.11.
You can still use webstart to access old versions of Jalview in the version archive

Yes! Just remember to include the '-nodisplay' flag on the command line (and if in doubt, also include java -Djava.awt.headless=true to tell Java not to attempt to use the graphics environment)

For example:

java -Djava.awt.headless=true .. jalview.bin.Jalview -nodisplay -open ...

The latest version of Jalview should run fine on a server without a graphics environment, but some operations may fail. If you encounter problems, submit a bug report.
