DevGui is a simple Swing application, not a web application, so you do not need a Servlet or JSP container like Tomcat to run it. These containers, however, will be needed later to run a DbForms web application that is generated in part by DevGui. For DevGui, the following will be needed.
DBFORMS_HOMEwhich points to the directory containing the dbforms distribution. For example,
DBFORMS_HOME=h:\dbformswhere the exact command to use depends on your operating system.
SET DBFORMS_HOME=h:\dbformsor you can use the system control panel. Be sure there are no spaces in the path or you will get a
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError. For example, if the path includes a directory named "
Program Files" or "
Documents and Settings", DbForms will not work.
exportcommands, depending on your shell. For
tcshshells use something like the following.
setenv DBFORMS_HOME /home/user123/dbformsFor the
shshell, the above example would become the following.
DBFORMS_HOME=/home/user123/dbforms export DBFORMS_HOMEFor the
kshshells, the above two commands can be combined into
CLASSPATH. This will also be needed later inside the running web application.
You must include these libraries in your
CLASSPATH setting since
DevGui does not run as a web application.
