Java application on Linux Redhat

VladjaVladja Member Vadimir JovanovicOrganization: Geomant,Inc.Project: Java client-server with ICE
Hi,

I am a newbie to ICE. So far I have used it more-less successfully on Windows.
I'm not sure what ICE component I need to make the java application run on Linux. For Windows it only needed the ice.jar file to function properly.
I have downloaded the Ice-3.2.0-rhel4-i386-rpm.tar.gz for Linux. Do I need to install the java rpm or include it in the classpath?

Thanks,
-Vladimir

    Hi Vladimir,

    Which Linux distribution do you use? You should use Redhat Entreprise Linux 4 for the RPMs from Ice-3.2.0-rhel4-i386-rpm.tar.gz.

    If you have the right distribution, you can just install the RPMs from the archive. For Java, you should install the ice-java and ice-java-devel RPM packages and their dependencies. Once the RPM are installed, you'll find the Ice.jar file to add to your CLASSPATH variable in the /usr/lib/Ice-3.2.0 directory. See also the README file installed in /usr/share/doc/Ice-3.2.0.

    If you don't have the right distribution, you should download the IceJ-3.2.0 java source distribution (IceJ-3.2.0-java5.tar.gz or IceJ-3.2.0-java2.tar.gz from http://www.zeroc.com/download.html#src) and follow the instructions from the INSTALL file.

    Let us know if you need more information!

    Cheers,
    Benoit.

    Hey,

    I'm not sure about the distribution. I'm suppose to deploy the java application,but all they told me was that it's a Linux Redhat.
    Thanks for the explanation! Sure will ask if I need more info!

    Cheers,
