Java client

Andrea Falconi (February 2004)

The Java client software requires a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) to run (version 1.4 or later). If you don't have one already, you can download the JRE install bundle from Sun's Java site.

Install procedure

Extract the downloaded bundle in any directory on your local file system. After doing this, your directory should contain:

  • a config directory,
  • a lib directory, and
  • a shoola.jar file.

Locate the config/container.xml file and edit it to specify the URL to the OME data server (OMEDS). All you have to do is to modify the content of the <url> tag within the following entry:

<structuredEntry name="/services/OMEDS" type = "OMEDS">

You have to replace with the actual OMEDS URL in use at your site.

Running the software

Double-click the shoola.jar file within the installation directory. A splash screen will pop up. Enter your OME username and password, then press the login button. Enjoy OME!

On several platforms the JRE install bundle configures the operating system so that *.jar files are automatically executed following a mouse action on the file within the desktop environment. However, you might not have such bindings in place. In this case, you will have to open a terminal window and move into the installation directory. Then issue the following command:

java -jar shoola.jar
