Pinned topic Desperately trying to install Cloudscape on Mac OS X 10.4.8

‏2007-01-23T09:09:08Z |
Hi

I first followed the default setting installing it directly on disk IBM/Cloudscape 10.1. Unfortunately it was empty
I tried installing, as it should, in the Application folder and the IBM Cloudscape 10.1 folder is empty too.

Any clue.

TIA

Nick

    Which version of java are you using?

    I just tried installing the Cloudscape java installer on mac osx 10.4.8 using the default setup. I also had the empty directories, but I also noticed that I got the error shown below:
    code getFileAttributes requires native support[/code]
    According to another thread [1] this error may have to do with Cloudscape's use of ISMP (Install Shield Multi Platform).

    The default jvm release on mac osx is 1.5. The Cloudscape install worked fine when I switched to 1.4.2:
    codeexport JAVA_HOME=/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.4.2/Home
    export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH[/code]
    Please try switching to 1.4.2. If the Cloudscape install still fails, please post the output from the "java -version" command.

    regards,

    Hi Jean

    Thanks for your reply. I would rather switch to an earlier version of Cloudscape if it fits JVM 1.5 than changing anything in my brand new iMac System.
    Does Derby have the same issue?

    Hi -

    Derby is distributed in ZIP files so will not encounter this issue with Install Shield.

    Hi, Nick,

    The problem isn't with Cloudscape itself -- the problem is only with the Cloudscape installer. Cloudscape includes the Apache Derby code "as is", without any modification whatsoever, then it adds the installer.

    Derby doesn't include an installer; you can download it from http://db.apache.org/derby/derby_downloads.html . I downloaded db-derby-10.2.2.0-bin.tar.gz to my Mac, extracted it with 'tar xzvf' and it works fine.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks, Jean and Stan

    If I get it right with Derby just need to drag and drop the app into the application folder whereas Cloudscape comes in a package that the installer doesn't open properly.
    Anyway, it makes no difference besides the package and the installer, does it?.

    Regards

    Hi, Nick, the main difference between Cloudscape and Derby is the packaging/installation.

    I unclicked the Safari 'Open "safe" files after downloading' option so the distribution won't be automatically extracted when I download it. Before I manually extract the distribution, I first verify the release [1]. Hmmm, I'll check if there's a way to automate that verification in mac osx.

    The online Derby Tutorial might help you with the spin up (especially see Step 1 on installation):
