Web application or standalone


I’m new to the forum and not at all competent when it comes to Java

My first question is how can I know if I’m using the Web server or the standalone version

I’ve installed the stand alone version and it works but when I tick use the option (run as server on port), the results seem to be exactly the same.

So how can I know that LT has toggled over to the server?

Yes, the results are exactly the same. The download version of LanguageTool does not contact any server on the internet. When the option “run as server” is enabled in the options window, you can use LanguageTool via http (see For instance, you can type “http://localhost:8081/?language=en&text=An+test” in the address bar of your browser, and you’ll receive an answer from the (local) LanguageTool server.
