System Requirements

Jtool-1.2.17 is now available for download. It can run on standard UNIX platforms (e.g., Linux or Cygwin) and requires:

to run. To compile, it also requires:

Downloading Jtool

The latest version of Jtool is available from here. The the jtool-* file is a binary distribution and the jtool-* file is a source distribution.

Installing and Running JTool

Installing the binary version of Jtool

  1. Unzip the contents of the downloaded jtool-* file to some directory ($jtooldir).
  2. You can find the jtool.jar in the $jtooldir/lib directory.

Installing and compiling the source version of Jtool

  1. Unzip the contents of the downloaded jtool-* file to some directory ($jtooldir).
  2. Change the current directory to $jtooldir.
  3. Rewrite the following path description for BCEL (red letters) of the build.xml file in $jtooldir for your environment.
    <pathelement location="/usr/local/bcel-5.1/bcel-5.1.jar"/>, or
    <pathelement location="c:/cygwin/usr/loca/bcel-5.1/bcel-5.1.jar"/>
  4. Execute "ant jar" to compile Jtool.
  5. You can find the jtool.jar file in the $jtooldir/lib directory.

Running Jtool

Sapid/XML is not an application software but a tool platfom, so there are some ways to run it. We provide several sample shell-scripts (*.cygwin for Cygwin) and java files in the $jtooldir/bin directory. The usage is described in each of the shell-scripts.

NOTE: A name of the installed directory includes no white space.
NOTE: Execute "chmod +x *" before running the shell-scripts because file permissions are not stored in the zipfile resulting from the Ant zip task.
NOTE: Modify the settings of the CLASSPATH environment variable to the directory where you installed Xerces and BCEL, and the setting of the SAPIDDIR environment variable to the Sapid directory. Otherwise, make a link to xerces-X with the name xerces.
