Re: InstantDB: Newbie confused on install of InstantDB


Al

Try building a little batch file called "setpath.bat", or something like
that and add something like the following:

set IDB=C:\InstantDB
set JRE="C:\Program Files\JavaSoft\JRE\1.3"
set
CLASSPATH=%IDB%\Classes\idb.jar;%IDB%\Classes\idbexmpl.jar;%IDB%\Classes\jta
-spec1_0_1.jar;%JRE%\lib\rt.jar;%CLASSPATH%
set PATH=%JRE%\bin;%PATH%

Adjust to match your own directory structure. The jta-spec1_0_1.jar is in
the zip file downloaded from Sun's website. Things should run OK without the
standard extensions. With the above batch file, all you need to do is call
up a dos prompt, call setpath.bat and then type in the ScriptTool command in
the install instructions.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Pete
