    Default Anyone try Java Web Start?

    Spoon 2.2.2-dev At first glance it appears as if Web Starting the Kettle design GUIs should be possible. Before I head off into an abyss of certificiates and JNLP descriptors I wanted to see if anyone else had considered and/or done this?


    If I get it to work I'm happy to contribute/post the results.

    OK Nick,

    Here is the unofficial Kettle Java Webstart Guide ;-)

    - Check out the source-code or download it
    - Edit Spoon.jnlp & chef.jnlp in the web directory
    1) modify the codebase URL to a webserver to your liking.
    2) If you want to deploy on for example Tomcat use http://127.0.0.1:8080/kettle
    3) make sure all libs are included in the resources section (sorry, haven't updated this lately)

    - do an "ant webstart": this will generate a kettle.war in webstart, with signing and everything.
    - Deploy the kettle.war or unzip the kettle.war on your webserver at the address you specified.

    That should do it.

    Cheers,

    Matt

    Huh... That's what I get for not digging a little deeper before posting... I took a quick look at the downloaded version but not the source repository.

    Thanks for your response Matt. I'll have a go at it soon enough.

    Spoon 2.2.2-dev Nick & all,




    I added 2 JNLP files to webstart Kettle to the Development packages directory in the Documents section.

    It's downloading from http://www.kettle.be, couldn't get it work on Javaforge.



    Direct links:

    * Spoon 2.2.2-dev

    * Chef 2.2.2-dev




    Enjoy,




    Matt

    I was able to start the application from the JNLP you provided below.

    I have not kicked the tires in terms of local file acces, remote database access, etc. Thanks for all your help, and I'll let everyone know what issues I find (if any) with the webstart version.
