Validate Your Installation - SuperSTAR

This section describes how to use the SuperWEB2 client and the supplied sample data to validate a new installation of SuperSTAR Suite.

We have provided a tutorial video to guide you through these steps. You may wish to watch the video first before trying these steps for yourself.

The video is called: SuperSTAR 8.0 GA Suite - QuickSTART Validation (Video)

You can find it in C:\Program Files\STR_Assist (assuming you selected the default installation options).

The validation process involves the following steps:

Step 1 - Check the SuperSTAR Windows Service is Running

  1. Open the Windows Control Panel.
  2. Select System and Security > Administrative Tools and open Services.
  3. Locate the services SuperSTAR and SuperWEB2 and check that they have the Status of Started, which indicates that they are running:

If the services are not running, right-click them and select Start.

Step 2 - Open SuperWEB2 in a Web Browser

  1. Open a web browser and go to http://localhost:8080/webapi
  2. Login to SuperWEB2 using the default user credentials:
    • Username: user1
    • Password: user1

Step 3 - Select the Retail Banking Database

The welcome screen displays. Double-click the Retail Banking database.

Step 4 - Create a Query in SuperWEB2

Add one of the fields to the columns and one of the fields to the rows.

For example, to add the Gender field to the columns:

  1. Expand Customers.
  2. Click the right arrow next to Gender to reveal the drop-down list.
  3. Select Gender from the drop-down list (this selects all the values from the Gender field).
  4. Click Add to Column.

For example, to add the Occupation field to the rows:

  1. Click the right arrow next to Occupation to reveal the drop-down list.
  2. Select Occupation from the drop-down list (this selects all the values from the Occupation field).
  3. Click Add to Row.

Now click Retrieve Data and verify that cross-tabulated results display in your browser:

If you see some results then this verifies that SuperWEB2 and the database server are working.

Step 5 - Open SuperCROSS and Setup the Server Connection

  1. Go to the Windows Start Menu and select SuperSTAR > SuperCROSS > SuperCROSS.

    SuperCROSS starts, and displays the Catalogue window. This window allows you to select the database you want to connect to.

    However, before you can select a database for the first time, you need to set up the database connection to the server.
  2. Click Close on the Catalogue window.

  3. Select File > SuperADMIN Connection. The SuperSTAR II SuperADMIN Connection window displays.
  4. In the Authentication section, enter the default user credentials (user: user1 and password: user1) and then click Add.

    The Add SuperADMIN window displays.
  5. Accept the default values (localhost and port) and click OK.

  6. Verify that the connection has been added, and click OK to close the SuperSTAR II SuperADMIN Connection window.

Step 6 - Select a Database

  1. Select File > New. The Catalogue window displays again.
  2. Expand SuperSTAR Database Server.
  3. Double-click Retail Banking to open it.

Step 7 - Create a Query in SuperCROSS

  1. In the Fields dialog, expand the Customers group.
  2. Select Gender and drag it to the workspace.

  3. Select Occupation and drag it to the workspace.
  4. Click the GO button on the toolbar:

    You should see some sample results appear in the table.

    This indicates that SuperCROSS is working and the database connection is configured correctly:
