ParaViewWeb


Introduction

The tomcat package that come inside the system package of a Linux distribution, has two limitation that needs to be managed in order to run ParaViewWeb on it. The first one is related to the fact that the system tomcat do not start in a run-level that has a server X which force or ParaView to not use the screen and therefore the GPU. For that special case, ParaView needs to be compiled with OSMesa. The second limitation is because of some security setting that prevent any web application to read/write anywhere on the disk or execute command lines.
