An assumption is made that you have already downloaded and installed the latest SIMPL code.
Step 1: Download the latest JAVA-SIMPL source tar.gz file to your system if you have not already done so (~6k)
Step 2: To undo the gzip'd tar file simply perform the following steps:
This will create an $SIMPL_HOME/java-x.x.x tree and place all of the source
for the code in there.
Step 3: Create a symbolic link to java
ln -s java-x.x.x java
x.x.x is substituted for actual version. eg. 1.3.3
Step 4: Build the code
If the $SIMPL_HOME/scripts is in your PATH you can simply type
Alternatively you can
This will create the required JAVA-SIMPL hooks.
Step 5: Run the unit tests.
There are some examples of JAVA-SIMPL code in the $SIMPL_HOME/java/test directory. If you have the SIMPL testing framework scripts installed you can run these in the normal way. The JAVA-SIMPL tests begin with the "js" designator.
Step 6: Have fun with the stuff.
If you have any problems, comments or suggestions for improvement don't hesitate to contact the SIMPL project mailing list.
