The Java™ runtime environment is required to run Capivara.
Capivara was tested and runs with:
Sun Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition, v 1.4.2 (J2SE)
(dropped support as of version 0.8.1)
- Sun JDK/JRE 5
- Sun JDK/JRE 6
You can download a JRE at http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads.
First, please make sure you that have the Java Runtime Environment installed on your system. Then, on Windows, you can just double-click the capivara-<version>-installer.jar and the installation routine starts. You can also launch the installer from the command line.
Include the java runtime in your search path:
on Unix environments and bash
set PATH=C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0\bin;%PATH%
java -jar <PATH_TO_INSTALLER>/capivara-<version>-installer.jar
If your system does not support desktop icons or program list entries or you didn’t choose to install such, start Capivara by executing
java -jar <PATH_TO_CAPIVARA>/capivara.jar
