- Java Runtime Environment(JRE) 1.5 or later, if you want to generate java prototype from COOPN, you should have JDK 1.5 or later on your machine, the JAVA_HOME envrionment variable should point to your JDK’s home. The prototype generator uses the library JAVA_HOME/lib/tools.jar to compile generated Java codes.
- CoopnBuilder is a pure Java application, it has been tested on Windows, Linux, Sun and MacOS X.
You will get a file named “coopn-installer.jar”.
- Install it on your machine
In most desktop environment, double-click “coopn-install.jar” will start the installation process. If this does not work, type:
java -jar coopn-install.jar
in your console, under the same directory of the file.
When the installation program ask the destination path to install, it’s better to give a path without space, like “c:\coopn” or “/usr/local/coopn”, a path name with space like “c:\program files\coopn” is not recommanded and sometimes can cause problems.
- Write your COOPN program
- Use ADT evaluation
- Generate and compile java prototype
