About the Binary Distribution

The binary distribution provides a fully working Fortress 1.2 install. All of the necessary jars and libraries are in the /lib directory. Executable scripts for running Fortress as a daemon or NT service are in the /bin directory (these use the Java Service Wrapper). Example configuration files are in /conf.

NOTE: this binary distribution is ALPHA quality at the moment. Please test and report any issues to the Excalibur mailing list.
