Before reading further make sure:
This document describes how to install Jigsaw. As an example, we are assuming that you are running either on Windows (be it 95 or NT) or on UNIX, even though Jigsaw will (should ?) run on any platform that supports Java.
The installation process involves the following steps:
Pick a place to unpack the distribution: we'll call this directory the installation directory (abreviated as INSTDIR). This can be any directory, you just have to change your current working directory to it:
UNIX : cd INSTDIR Windows : cd INSTDIR
Now unpack the file:
UNIX : cat jigsaw.tar.gz | gzip -d | tar xomvf - Windows : unzip jigsaw.zip
This will create a number of directories under the Jigsaw directory:
You are now ready for the next section, which explains how to setup your environment.
As Jigsaw is just a set of Java classes, you need to specify to the Java interpreter the place where Jigsaw classes are stored. This is usually done by setting some CLASSPATH environment variable. This is simply done by the following command for 2.1.0 and up:
UNIX # This depends on the shell you are using, we're assuming /bin/sh CLASSPATH=INSTDIR/Jigsaw/classes/jigsaw.jar:INSTDIR/Jigsaw/classes/sax.jar:INSTDIR/Jigsaw/classes/xp.jar:. export CLASSPATH Windows set CLASSPATH=INSTDIR\Jigsaw\classes\jigsaw.jar;INSTDIR\Jigsaw\classes\sax.jar;INSTDIR\Jigsaw\classes\xp.jar;.
And this one for version up to 2.0.x:
UNIX # This depends on the shell you are using, we're assuming /bin/sh CLASSPATH=INSTDIR/Jigsaw/classes/jigsaw.zip:INSTDIR/Jigsaw/classes/servlet.jar. export CLASSPATH Windows set CLASSPATH=INSTDIR\Jigsaw\classes\jigsaw.zip;INSTDIR\Jigsaw\classes\servletjar.
Don't forget to change INSTDIR with the absolute path of the place you have unpacked the distribution. You should now be ready to run Jigsaw.
Warning: on some Windows Java implementation, prefixing the CLASSPATH with the disk drive letter may cause some confusion. If java complains about not being able to find some class, you may want to remove the disk drive letter from the CLASSPATH. Note also that if you are adding this line in a batch file, you must escape the '\' the line will be: set CLASSPATH=INSTDIR\\Jigsaw\\classes\\jigsaw.zip
Be careful to have the right CLASSPATH (see above):
UNIX cd INSTDIR/Jigsaw/Jigsaw java Install Windows cd INSTDIR\Jigsaw\Jigsaw java Install
You are now all set to run Jigsaw. Just type in the following command:
UNIX cd INSTDIR/Jigsaw/Jigsaw java org.w3c.jigsaw.Main -host host -root INSTDIR/Jigsaw/Jigsaw Windows cd INSTDIR\Jigsaw\Jigsaw java org.w3c.jigsaw.Main -host host -root INSTDIR\Jigsaw\Jigsaw
Don't forget to susbstitute to INSTDIR the absolute path of the location where you have unpacked the distribution file, and to host the full IP hostname of the machine running Jigsaw.
Jigsaw should be running, and will probably have emited a message like:
