Running a node

Starting your node

After following the steps in Deploying a node, you should have deployed your node(s) with any chosen CorDapps already installed. You run each node by navigating to <node_dir> in a terminal window and running:

java -jar corda.jar

The configuration file and workspace paths can be overridden on the command line. For example:

./corda.jar --config-file=test.conf --base-directory=/opt/r3corda/nodes/test.

Otherwise the workspace folder for the node is the current working path.

Debugging your node

To enable remote debugging of the node, run the following from the terminal window:

java -Dcapsule.jvm.args="-agentlib:jdwp=transport=dt_socket,server=y,suspend=y,address=5005" -jar corda.jar

This command line will start the debugger on port 5005 and pause the process awaiting debugger attachment.
