Subject issues with overview-and-setup on Windows
Date Mon, 10 Aug 2009 13:30:06 GMT
I am running into issues when going through the good old old example
instructions included with UIMA 2.22.

I am posting to draw attention to these, in case they need attention. Also,
they may bring up other issues which are worth discussing here.

Here is one: if I want to add the sources to the jar files, there is a
"bat" file, in the unzipped source code directory.  It basically just runs
the java jar command for the source jars.

cd jVinci\src\main\java
jar  %UIMA_HOME%\lib\jVinci.jar *

On Windows, you will certainly get an error, saying 'no 'jar' command on
this system.'

Problem 1.  The script just calls the jar command, instead of calling java
-jar.  I don't know when that has ever worked - certainly it has been many
years ago.  Currnelty (JDK 1.6.0_13_b03), you need to use the java -jar

cd jVinci\src\main\java
java -jar  %UIMA_HOME%\lib\jVinci.jar *

Even fixing this does not solve all problems - there is still an error
about not finding the Manifest.  Note: it is not a problem with JAVA_HOME
or the system wide recognition of  Java.  Here is my DOS screen for a
series of commands:

C:\apache-uima\uimaj-2.2.2-incubating>java -fullversion
java full version "1.6.0_13-b03"

C:\apache-uima\uimaj-2.2.2-incubating>java -jar
Usage: java [-options] class [args...]
           (to execute a class)
   or  java [-options] -jar jarfile [args...]
           (to execute a jar file)

where options include:
    -client       to select the "client" VM
    -server       to select the "server" VM
    -hotspot      is a synonym for the "client" VM  [deprecated]
                  The default VM is client.

    -cp <class search path of directories and zip/jar files>
    -classpath <class search path of directories and zip/jar files>
                  A ; separated list of directories, JAR archives,
                  and ZIP archives to search for class files.

    -showversion  print product version and continue

                  load native agent library <libname>, e.g. -agentlib:hprof
                    see also, -agentlib:jdwp=help and -agentlib:hprof=help
                  load native agent library by full pathname
