Xapplication development on Linux

I was having trouble compiling XApplication under linux,
then I noticed in the documentation that Development using XApplication was only supported under Win2k and WinXP…
any particular reason there exists this limitation ???
Isnt XApplication a complete java solution ? If it is then compiling it and developing with it under linux should be no problem.

Is there a plan to release the next version of XApplication with full linux support?



X-Application Version: 4.1.1
Tamino Version :
Platform : Linux
WebContainer : Tomcat 4.1.24
JDK Version : 1.4.2


What are your problems with Linux?

X-Application 4.1.1 was developed on Windows as well as on a Linux machine. We tested the build process and run the test suite on Linux also.

For the development and tests we used

- Linux RedHat
- JSDK 1.3.1_07

However, we used “jikes” to compile X-Application, because of broken “file broken” messages of the JSDK’s Java Compiler. If you look into the build.sh file, you will find the option -dbuild.compile to control the compiler.


that was the problem. In my build.sh file jikes was set as the compiler.
I removed the -dbuild.compile flag and it build just fine now.

Thanks for the help
