The workshop will give you what you need toconfigure GeoServer to publish your data on the Web. We’ll walk through aconfiguration with a Postgres back-end, data styling, and integration with browser-basedand desktop clients.
OpenLayerspenLayers provides the base for a browser-based mapping client. This workshop willcover the basics of building an application with OpenLayers—getting a simple slippymap interface to display your data.In the following demo, SACON shows how easy it is to serve your geographic data onthe web. Steps covered:1.
Install GeoServer2.
Load your data (shapefile) into PostgreSQL/PostGIS database usingOpenJUMPWe have provided Wetlands of Rajahmundry Mandal sample data withthis tutorial in the form of shapefiles as follows in the directorydata/Wetlands of Rajahmundry Mandal.

1) Install GeoServer
GeoServer is map and geographic data serving software. In order to serve your map datato the Internet you would need to installGeoServeron a server connected to the Internetand having a registered domain name. A web server that you might already haveprobably has web serving software such asApache. However, GeoServer requires someother components.
Prerequisites - GeoServer requires 2 additional components:
A servlet engine. A servlet engine calledJettycomes bundled with GeoServer.Another popular servlet engine used isTomcat.2.
A Java development kit (JDK). For this demo we installed JDK 1.4.2 on aWindows XP. To install JDK 1.4.2, go tohttp://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.htmland scroll down to the section “JavaSE Development Kit (JDK) 1.4.2” and click the Download button. On thefollowing download page, find your operating system (for example, Windows orLinux), and download the installation file. For Windows, there is a choice of online installation.GeoServer version 1.6.4 was used for this demo. However, as of 26/08/2008 the latestversion is now 1.7 Beta RC 1. It may be something else as you are reading this.GeoServer is constantly updated. You can download thelatest stable release.1.
Please check out theinstallation guideprovided along with this tutorial. We haveprovided the installation of GeoServer with Tomcat (Server oriented installation).If user just wants to try out it locally, then user can install just GeoServer exeprovided with this tutorial.
Explore the GeoServer web interface
 GeoServer has a web interface where you can configure your installation and setup yourdata. For this demo we are “serving” the data to ourselves, not installing GeoServer on aserver with a registered domain name, so we'll use “localhost” as the server name.Open a web browser (any type - Firefox or Internet Explorer, etc) and go to:http:/localhost:8080/geoserver/ (8080 is the servlet engine port). You'll see the GeoServerwelcome page:
