(for programmers) get JSesh sources
Note to web site authors: if you want to give a link to allow the downloading of JSesh, please use http://jsesh.qenherkhopeshef.org/download instead of a direct link to the software itself. The reasons :
JSesh has been tested on Mac OS X 10.3 (panther), 10.4 (Tiger) and 10.5 (Leopard). It might work with Mac OS 10.2 (jaguar) if you upgrade the software called "java" to version 1.4.1 (see here) However, I haven't tested it.
Download JSesh-install_....jar. It's an installer. Start it (double click), and follow the instructions.
The installation creates a directory containing the documentation and a Mac Application. Go to Application/JSesh to lauch JSesh (click on the owl hieroglyph).
I had recently some problems, installing JSesh, as the mac told me I didn't have the right to write in "/Application". Now, this can be fixed in two ways: open the mac "disk utilities", and select "fix permissions". It will normally give you the right to create files in "Application". Now, while this is the mac default setting, from a security point of view, forbidding write access to "Application" is a rather sane point of view. So, another solution is to install JSesh in a folder where you can write. Then, if you want, you can move it to "Application" (It would be possible for me to create an installer which is executed in "administrator mode", but I think this should not be necessary for a "user" application).
First, be sure to have a Java Runtime Engine (JRE) (a program which can run java softwares) on your computer. You can download one for free at http://www.java.com.
JSesh should work with java 1.4, 1.5 and 1.6.
Install your JRE
Download JSesh-install_xxxx.exe. It's an installer. Start it by double-clicking on it.
Follow the instructions.
Now, JSesh is installed ; a desktop shortcut is created. Just double-click on it.
There is a problem when JSesh 5 is installed alongside JSesh 4 (and maybe in a few other cases ?). In this case, The install stops just before creating the "shortcuts" which allow one to start the software. In reality, the installer is unable to replace the old shortcuts (for JSesh 4) by the new ones.
To solve the problem, it's possible to change the name of the "shortcuts group" which is created for JSesh. Simply replace "JSesh" by "JSesh-5.6" in the following screen :
A new group will be created, different from the existing one, and the shortcuts will be correctly created. Jsesh can then be normally started:
In most cases, JSesh can be installed without any problem on Windows 7. Anyway, Some users have had trouble installing JSesh under the 64bit versions of Windows 7.
In any case, it is still possible to use the software.
c:\Program Files\JSesh\libs or, for JSesh 5.x, in c:\Program Files\JSesh\libJSesh
(well, in the folder where JSesh is installed, and in the "libs" sub-folder).
This parts is intended for programmers. Thanks for not getting anxious.
