Pinned topic Content Manager OnDemand 9.0 Java API development - setup on Windows XP?

‏2012-10-26T18:27:57Z |
I have been trying to setup an OnDemand Web Enablement Kit (ODWEK) Java API Eclipse development environment on Windows XP for the newly released CMOD V9.0. I am running into a number of problems. First, it appears that some of CMOD 9.0 documentation for the ODWEK Java API is still based on the V8.x release. Second, the documentation doesn't exactly specify how one should get the Java API installed on a client Windows (XP) development machine. I assume that one would install ODWEK on the Windows XP dev machine, but this does not appear to be possible since the ODWEK install fails every time I try to install on XP. I suspect that the install is 64-bit and thus has problems on a 32-bit XP machine. Should I be able to set up the CMOD 9.0 ODWEK on 32-bit Windows XP and if so, how?

    Well after much trial and error, I finally figured out how to get things working in my Eclipse dev environment on XP. I never did get the ODWEK install to work on Windows XP so not sure if that is possible. However, once you have installed ODWEK on a Windows Server, one can do the following to get a working ODWEK dev client setup:
    • Install GSKit 8 (if not already installed)
    • Copy the following files to the Java dev Eclipse project directory from the Windows Server ODWEK 9.0 install location: api\ODApi.jar, ars3wapi32.dll, arsgsk32.dll, lib32\icu*.dll
    • Copy the following file to the GSKIT lib directory from the Windows Server ODWEK 9.0 install location: arsgsk32.dll
    • Copy the entire Windows Server ODWEK 9.0 locale directory to the Java dev Eclipse project directory
    • Add the ODAPI.jar to your Eclipse project Java Build Path libraries

    After I figured all this out, I did find hints and pieces of the solution in various knowledgebase articles, although most of the articles below are for ODWEK 8.5 and some information does not apply to ODWEK 9.0

    Bottom line, the ODWEK 9.0 Java API documentation is still a work in progress!
