Watermarker on an eComStation machine with Open JDK

Installing Watermarker
Download the file Watermarker 3.0 Binary.zip. Create a folder (directory) "watermarker" or something similar which fits your needs. Open the "Watermarker 3.0 Binary.zip" file, go into the subdirectory and copy the contents to the new folder "watermarker". There is also a manual for downloading. It is a pdf file.

The used Watermarker.cmd file
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 -Xmx512m -jar WaterMarker_3.0.jar 2>watermarker-bugs.txt
I use 2 separate folders (directories), one for Java and one for Watermarker with the files created by this program. The references used in the cmd file;

  • [drive: java] = drive with Java
  • [drive: watermarker] = drive with 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 "Watermarker". The download also has a nice OS/2 icon.

Parameters / options explained
  • The statement "-Duser.home=[drive: watermarker]\watermarker" will ensure that Watermarker will save all necessary files in own directory instead of saving them in the home directory.
  • The specification "-Xmx512m" comes from the manual. The "-Xmx512m" indicates the maximum limit. The maximum varies if you use the program with raw pictures and can be as much as "-Xmx1024m".
  • 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! Don't be alarmed that this file will never be 0 bytes. The program dumps also its log into this file.

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