Support for Intel Macs

Postby J. Whitley » Wed Mar 15, 2006 1:23 am

I've got two questions regarding Intel Mac support:

1. Has the Mac OS X .app build been tested on an Intel-based Mac yet?

2. Do current releases of Oxygen XML work with Eclipse 3.2M5? (This is the first stable build of Eclipse which supports Intel Macs.)

Thanks!

Hi,

Yes, we tested oXygen on the new Intel Mac and we use a new Intel Mac also for development.
oXygen 7.1 supports the latest Eclipse release, 3.1.2. Milestone builds of the following Eclipse version may work with oXygen if they are API compatible with 3.1 but if there are API changes then some errors may appear when using functionality that uses the API that was changed.

Best Regards,
George

oXygen 7.1 does not work on Eclipse 3.2 M5 due to Eclipse API changes.

You can make Eclipse 3.1.2 run on an Intel Mac system by patching the installation.

1. Install Eclipse 3.1.2 on your system.
2. Download the file:
http://www.weinand.org/eclipse/org.ecli ... .0.jar.zip
3. Extract the jar file from the zip archive.
4. Rename it from:

org.eclipse.swt.carbon.macosx.ppc_3.1.0.jar
to:
org.eclipse.swt.carbon.macosx.ppc_3.1.1.jar

5. Copy it over the file with the same name in the eclipse/plugins directory.

Now you can start Eclipse.

(The recompiled plugin was posted here by its author, Andre Weinand: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=98889)

Any chance for a 3.2 compatible beta?

After the oXygen 7.2 maintenance release we will probably move to Eclipse 3.2 and release also a 7.2 plugin for Eclipse 3.2.

Awesome, thanks for the update George. Looking at the news page it seems you're on roughly a quarterly release cycle. Looking forward to it...

Universal binary for OS X

Postby rrliu » Mon Jun 19, 2006 9:01 am

Trying to plan my future purchases. You say that Oxygen runs on the Intel Macs. Do you mean that it is a universal binary, or that it runs under Rosetta, the PowerPC emulator?

Hello,

It is not a universal binary, it is a Java application which needs for running only a Java virtual machine installed on your Mac computer. This is true for any platform on which <oXygen/> can run (Mac OS X, Windows, Unix/Linux). Mac OS X comes with the JVM from the Apple company preinstalled so you should have no problems running <oXygen/> on a PowerPC Mac or Intel Mac, without an emulator. We run <oXygen/> internally for development and tests on both PowerPC and Intel Macs without problems.

Hi,

oXygen is a Java application and it runs on Intel Mac without any problems as Apple provides Java also for Intel Mac.
