Unlike other programs, you install CQ WCM by using a "Quickstart" self-running jar file. When you double-click the jar file, everything you need is automatically installed. The CQ quickstart jar file includes the CRX 1.4.1 repository ( a JCR-170 compliant repository and Apache Sling), virtual repository services, index and search services, workflow services, security (already configured for LDAP integration or Windows single sign-on), and a Web server. No other user intervention is necessary. The first time you start the jar file, it creates an entire JCR-compliant repository in the background, which may take several minutes. After the first time, startup is much quicker as the repository has already been created.
This section contains detailed instructions on how to install CQ WCM using the Quickstart jar file.
These instructions apply only to CQ version 5 and higher. Versions prior to 5 used an installer rather than a quickstart jar file. For information about installing previous versions, see the appropriate documentation at docs.day.com.
