PostPosted: Wed 02 Dec 2015, 20:35    Post subject: get-java-0.4-beta uploaded  

I have upgraded get_java to its final configuration and released it for testing. Its main improvements are:
    - Downloads either Java Runtime or Java Development Kit.
    - Functions in pupmode 5, new bootup from CD.
    - "Magic" editing scripts moved to configuration file for maintenance when web pages are modified.
Plus some bug fixes.

I intend that 0.4 will become 1.0 after any newly found bugs are fixed. Please post/PM any issues you might have with this version. Everything should be intuitive or self explanatory. Please help me make it so.

Thanks for all of your help in testing this project.
Richard

PostPosted: Mon 14 Dec 2015, 16:01    Post subject: get-java-0.5-rc and updated javaif uploaded  

I have further upgraded both get_java and javaif to new final configurations and released them as release candidates. Their main improvements are:
    - Added support for flash drive installations (pupmodes 3,7,13)
    - SFS file compression (gz/xz) and naming similar to that of get_libreoffice
    - Dialog text clarifications (Thanks, L18L)
    - Interface improvement for SFS packages with conflicting profiles
Plus more bug fixes.

I now intend that version 0.5 will become 1.0, but with any further fixes needed.

Note that get_java works on both 32-bit and 64-bit puppy installations and can produce packages for either architecture and will not offer to install an inappropriate package.

As to get_java in FatDog64, it produces the SFS and PET files, but they cannot be installed automatically due its different package and SFS loading functions. Furthermore, when I tried converting the PET file to the fatdog structure, the converted file failed to install. I could not find any diagnostic information, so could not pursue the issue further.

As before, please report anything that does not seem right with get_java or the Java interface (javaif) package.
Richard

I have replaced the release candidates with the actual releases, although the contents are identical to the candidates. I simply renamed the directories and rebuilt them without any changes.

Thank you, all, for working with me on this project, which is now complete, unless bugs are found and reported.

PostPosted: Wed 15 Jun 2016, 18:15    Post subject: javaif package replaced  

This package is now maintained under woof-CE, so can be included in future Puppy distro versions. While submitting it, I updated the interface package to correct a minor bug that eventually resolves itself anyway. The details are in the new "UPDATE" paragraph in the first message of this thread.

A day later, I updated the package further, to avoid the possibility of duplicate menu entries for the Java Control Panel.

tlchost,
Sorry to be so slow in addressing the problem. Thanks for keeping after me about it.

I have added a fix package at the beginning of this thread, that changes 3 editing scripts that extract links to the download packages. This is just a matter of keeping up with Oracle's web page changes.

EDIT: Also uploaded get_java version 1.0.1, which contains the patch and now shows the version number (1.0.1) in the window title.

Richard, your latest version built the SFS OK, but when loaded has none of its /bin binaries symlinked on Tahr64-605's $PATH.

A quick manual symlink to ~/my-applications/bin revealed:
Code:
java version "1.8.0_102"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_102-b14)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.102-b14, mixed mode)

So, sans the above mention, fine here.

==

Idea I suppose it's more elegant to append the path in /etc/profile.

Semme,
If you let get_java load the SFS file when it asks, the links get set. If you load the SFS later, they are not set because the SFS loader does not know that they are needed. Therefore, you need to reboot after loading the SFS file, because the links get set during bootup.
