There are two types of jLibrary servers: local and remote. A local server is an internal sever within jLibary client. A jLibrary local server is started each time you launch jLibrary client, and that will allow you to store your personal documentation and media. JLibrary remote servers are launched in their own program, and usually are corporative servers storing enterprise data.
From this New server profile dialog, you can choose if you want to access to your jLibrary client internal server, if you want to load a repository directly from your harddisk, or if you want to access to a remote server. The fist option, opens jLibrary clinet embedded server. With the second option, you can open a repository that is stored on your hard disk and which you know where is located. Currently, the repositories opened from this option must be Jackrabbit based repositories. Finally, to access to a remote server you must enter an URL as jlibrary://server:port. For this tutorial, simply press Cancel button for going back to the connection page, as we will use the jLibrary client embedded server.
Whatever server you have chosen, it will be mandatory to have an account in that server. In case that you have an account you must enter your username and password, and press the Connect button. The connection step can take some time. Once it has finished, the Next button will became enabled. Press it and you'll go to the next step.
If you don't know your username or password, maybe it could be the first time you run jLibrary. In any case, you should know that jLibrary always come with a default administratior user. The connection data for this user is admin/changeme. If you are a working on an enterprise, then probably you should call your jLibrary server admin service to ask them for an user/password.
Warning: Once you have connected to jLibrary as Administrator, you should change that default password to avoid security risks.
Once you have pressed the Next button, you'll come to the repository data wizard page. Here you must enter the repository name and description. You can check the Remember this information checkbox if you want that jLibrary connects automatically to this sever each time you run the program. As you can see, all the repositories will be created under the administrator user, this is one change introduced since jLibrary 1.0 beta4.
Once that you have entered the repository attributes, you can press the Finish button to create the repository.
Congratulations! You have created your first repository :)
