Universe - Notes on Version 0.6
Release Date: 21 Aug 1998
- Sorts/Filters added to all lists
- Changes to Display classes to support new Sorts/Filters
- The following new classes:
You need to install the ability to run Java Applications on your
computer. Some operating system have this ability built in (OS/2,
MacOS), but some do not (Win95, WinNT, Unix). Available for free is
the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) from Sun Microsystems (at http://java.sun.com/products/jdk/1.1/jre/index.html)
for operating systems that don't have the ability to run Java
Applications (this includes Windows 95.) Follow the directions from
Sun carefully. Note that your web browser does not have the ability
to run Java Applications.
You also need to install the Java Foundation Classes (JFC). JFC is
available from Sun microsystems at http://java.sun.com/products/jfc.
In addition to Java, you need the jar executable file. The jar file
can be placed anywhere on your computer.
After the jar file is downloaded, to run Universe you must type in the
following command at a prompt (make sure you are in the directory
where the jar file is located):
jre -cp Universe.0.6.jar UniverseMain
Note that the "U" and the "M" on UniverseMain must be upper case.
If you have the JDK and on the JRE, the following command should work:
java -classpath $CLASSPATH:Universe.0.6.jar UniverseMain
Please feel free to contact me if
you have problems with installation or execution.
