Can't get java working with Airport Configurator
I am trying to configure my Appe Airport Basestation using the Java
Configurator. It requires Java 1.2 but apparently can work with some an
extra download (swing library for java < 1.2). I am a java newbie and
have never had any success trying to execute java apps :(
Apparently the command to run the app is "java -jar
AirportConfigurator.jar" but I can't get it to work. I'm pretty sure I
haven't got java installed properly. I've tried installing jdk1.1. It
installs a binary called java but it doesn't have the -jar command line
switch. Maybe the extra swing library download has this ??? I've also
tried installing kaffe which does support the -jar switch.
$ kaffe AirportBaseStationConfig.jar
$ kaffe -classpath . -jar AirportBaseStationConfig.jar
Couldn't find or load essential class `java/lang/Object'
How do I successfully install a Java 1.2 Runtime Environment ? (using
apt preferably). I can't find any 1.2 JRE's using "apt-cache search"
and "apt-cache show".
Please help. I appreciate any comments, suggestions and pointers.
