Subject [jira] Updated: (FOR-510) Setting Environment Variables Information
Date Sat, 04 Jun 2005 10:46:40 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOR-510?page=all ]

Ross Gardler updated FOR-510:
-----------------------------

Fix Version:     (was: 0.7-dev)
Description:
Since we describe how to set the Forrest env variables in our docs we should make sure we
have instructions for varying OS and versions.  If you know of an OS that sets variables differently
than that listed in our current docs, please add it in the comments.  Make sure you state
the OS and version as well as the full process to set the Forrest variables.

Current instructions (0.7)
In Unix/Linux:
change directory to the top-level of the forrest distribution and do
~/apache-forrest-0.7$export FORREST_HOME=pwd ~/apache-forrest-0.7$ export PATH=$PATH:$FORREST_HOME/bin

In Windows:
Go to "My Computer", "Properties", "Advanced", "Environment Variables"
FORREST_HOME as C:\full\path\to\apache-forrest-0.7
PATH as %PATH%;%FORREST_HOME%\bin

Version: 0.7-dev
(was: 0.6)
Environment:

I've added the calrifications given above, but I am not resolving the issue as we still have
to create instructions for other OS's, such as Mac.

Taken off the 0.7 schedule now that we are up to date with what we have.
