Batch Watermarker on an eComStation machine with Open JDK

Installing Batch Watermarker
Download the file Batch Watermarker Create a folder (directory) "watermarker" or something similar which fits your needs. Unzip "Batch Watermarker" to the new folder "watermarker".

The used Watermarker.cmd file
Batch Watermarker works very well with Open JDK in OS/2-eCS. I have made a Watermarker.cmd file with the following contents;
@echo off
set path=[drive: java]\JAVA160\bin
set BEGINLIBPATH=[drive: java]\JAVA160\bin
[drive: watermarker]
cd [drive: watermarker]\watermarker
java -Duser.home=[drive: watermarker]\watermarker -jar watermarker.jar 2>watermarker-bugs.txt
I use 2 separate folders (directories), one for Java and one for Batch Watermarker with the files created by this program. The references used in the cmd file;

  • [drive: java] = drive with Java
  • [drive: watermarker] = drive with Batch Watermarker

should be replaced by real drive letters. Adjust the file from the distribution below, ie. different drive and directories (maps). Save Watermarker.cmd and copy it to the watermarker directory (map).

Create a new program object or copy it from the file below. Specify the path and file name: "[drive: watermarker]\watermarker\Watermarker.cmd". In the tabpage Session check the boxes "OS/2 window", "Running as an icon" and "Close Window to end program". In the tabpage General you can enter the name "Batch Watermarker".

Parameters / options explained
  • The statement "-Duser.home=[drive: watermarker]\watermarker" will ensure that Batch Watermarker will save all necessary files in own directory instead of saving them in the home directory.
  • The addition "2>watermarker-bugs.txt" ensures that errors are saved in the file "watermarker-bugs.txt". The 2 in "2>" is not a typo!

In the file you can find the above command file (all drive letters are on set to C:) and an OS/2 Batch Watermarker icon:
