OpenCGA requires Java, Tomcat or MongoDB. We try to keep dependencies to the minimum to ease development, installation and administration, and divide dependencies into required and optional. You can learn about all the dependencies and how to install them at Installation Guide > Server Configuration.
There are two ways to get OpenCGA for installation. First, you can download the source code from GitHub and use Apache Maven to compile and build it. Second, you can download a prebuilt binary from the OpenCGA GitHub Releases web page, notice that only stable and pre-releases are tagged and prebuilt.
Building from Sources
Although most users will use stable prebuilt binaries (see below) there is still the need for different users to compile and build OpenCGA, for instance to test a development version. You can learn how to build from the source code at Installation Guide > Building from Source Code.
You can download stable and pre-release (beta and release candidate) versions from OpenCGA GitHub Releases web page. You will find a tar.gz file with the name of opencga and the version, for instance to download OpenCGA 1.0.0-rc2.1 you can go to the GitHub Release at:
