Tips on Sun Java Studio Enterprise 8

Posted by marinasum on October 26, 2005 at 10:49 AM PDT

As intuitive as Sun Java Studio Enterprise 8 is, learning a few tips about that IDE would smooth out your work life even more. You may find the tidbits below helpful. As before, Nathan Fiedler of the Sun Java Studio Enterprise engineering team helped me screen a technical FAQ and interpret the fine points. Hats off to him.Q: Why does my CD not perform an autorun on UNIX systems?NathanFiedler2.jpg

A: This phenomenon occurs on the Solaris 9 or 10 Operating System. The CD-DVD autorun capability poses a security concern and is disabled in those two Solaris versions.

Q: The IDE does not launch even after installation on a UNIX platform. Why? And what should I do?

A: If the root user installed the IDE, the installer does not perform a launch afterwards because root users typically do not run such applications as IDEs. Starting those applications would, therefore, be against conventional administrator policy. The workaround? Install Sun Java Studio Enterprise 8 as user, not as root.

Q: Why does the Adventure Builder reference application fail the testing by the Application Verifier Kit (AVK)?

A: Here's the crux of the issue: Adventure Builder's JAR files reside in a directory that the AVK cannot access even though Sun Java System Application Server can locate them, hence a failure reported by the AVK. In reality, the application runs without a glitch. Just ignore the error please.
