Changing settings for Java Web Start

Post by dcramer » Wed Aug 24, 2011 6:24 am

Hi there,
I'm considering using Java Web Start to distribute Oxygen to some infrequent users who will use the floating license. Is there a way I can modify the oxyAuthorOptionsSa##.#.xml they will receive when they first start? I have certain settings that I would like to force them to use.

Thanks,
David

Hi David,

So the usual deploy procedure of a JavaWebstart installation can be found here:

http://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/ug-oxygen/ ... aller.html

As you can see, before calling ANT to create the JavaWebstart distribution in the packager.properties file you can set an optionsDir parameter which would point to the directory containing Oxygen options which will be zipped and bundled with the JavaWebstart distribution.

So one approach would be modify the Oxygen Preferences as you see fit and then using the Options menu -> Export Global Options export the preferences to an XML file called oxyOptionsSa12.2.xml located in a new folder. Then in the packager.properties point to the folder containing the exported options.

Regards,
Radu

Thanks Radu. I'd missed that documentation. I had just downloaded the jws version, looked at the readme, and thought that's all there was :-)

Hi David,

Indeed the page:
http://www.oxygenxml.com/download_oxyge ... vaWebStart has remained quite out-dated. It allows you to download the old Oxygen JWS installation.
We'll update it as soon as possible.

So you should ignore it completely and start from the user manual link I gave you which has some clear steps for the JWS installation:

http://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/ug-oxygen/ ... aller.html
