Download the Demonstration Application

Introduction | Examples | Source Code | Maven | Java Documentation [ Try it ]


  • Java 8 has been installed on the machine that the application is being executed on.


  1. Download the demonstration application for the FRED Client or World Bank Client
  2. Open a command prompt (refer to example 1 below) and change the directory to where you saved this file (ie. “cd C:\Temp” on Microsoft Windows).
  3. Execute “java -jar fred-client-assembly-2.0.0-RELEASE.jar” (refer to example 1 below)
  4. The application should launch and you should see an image as appears below (refer to example 2 blow).
  5. Send us an email if you have questions.

Once the application is running you might want to edit the queries we have provided — if this is the case, you’ll want to look at the documentation for the QueryBuilder.

Finally, the domain classes may also likely be of interest to you.

Proxy Server

If your company uses a proxy server for Internet access then you can still run the application, but you would do so as follows:

java -Dhttp.proxyHost=[IP address] -Dhttp.proxyPort=[port number] -jar fred-client-assembly-2.0.0-RELEASE.jar

For example:

java -Dhttp.proxyHost= -Dhttp.proxyPort=8800 -jar fred-client-assembly-2.0.0-RELEASE.jar

Ask your network administrators for the proxy server name or IP address and port number.
