Title:

How to install BBj 5.0

Description:

BBj 5.0 now uses Self Extracting Jar files. 

The following installation instructions may assist you in understanding the README file for BBj 5.0. 

In the section titled 
INSTALL THE DOWNLOAD FROM THE BASIS WEB SITE 

What does this mean for you? 

On Windows - You should double click on the jar file. This should begin the install process 
automatically provided the Java file associations are setup properly. 

If this does not work, try using the following command from the command line : 

%JAVAHOME%\bin\java.exe -jar <jar_file_name> 

On Unix - the command is: 

${JAVAHOME}/bin/java -jar <jar_file_name> 

If neither of these work, you can extract the jar file: 

%JAVAHOME%\bin\jar.exe -xf <jar_file_name> 
or 
${JAVAHOME}/bin/jar -xf <jar_file_name> 

Once the files are extracted, you must run the appropriate installation file, e.g. under UNIX run the unix.sh, under Windows run the windows.exe 

Either way: 

1) Be patient, java has to start up. 

2) You will receive a window to specify where to extract the files to. 

See KB#01088-BBj revision 5 Install FAQ for further information on the BBj Rev 5 install process.
