System requirements
  • Version 1.6.0 Build 22 GA (2011-06-27)
  • Program can use up to 512Mb RAM

JPdfBookmarks on an eComStation machine with Open JDK

Installing JPdfBookmarks
Download Create a folder (directory) "jpdfbookmarks". Open the zip file and open the directory "jpdfbookmarks-2.5.2" in the zip file. Copy the directory and files to the directory "jpdfbookmarks". That's it!

The jpdfbookmarks.cmd file
With this file the program JPdfBookmarks starts. I have made a jpdfbookmarks.cmd file with the following contents;
@echo off
set path=[drive: java]\JAVA160\bin
set BEGINLIBPATH=[drive: java]\JAVA160\bin
[drive: jpdfbookmarks]
cd [drive: jpdfbookmarks]\jpdfbookmarks
java -Xms64m -Xmx512m -Duser.home=[drive: jpdfbookmarks]\jpdfbookmarks -jar jpdfbookmarks.jar
The last two lines are actual one line, but I had to break it up in parts for this page. Be aware that there is a space between "jpdfbookmarks.jar" and "2>". I use 2 separate folders (directories), one for Java and one for JPdfBookmarks with the files created by this program. The references used in the cmd file;

  • [drive: java] = drive with Java
  • [drive: jpdfbookmarks] = drive with JPdfBookmarks

should be replaced with real drive letters. Edit and save the file "jpdfbookmarks.cmd" from the file. This file is copied to the "jpdfbookmarks" folder (directory). Furthermore, different paths?, adjust according to your needs. Create a new program object. Specify the path and file name: "[drive: jpdfbookmarks]\jpdfbookmarks\jpdfbookmarks.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 "JPdfBookmarks". You find enclosed in the file a JPdfBookmarks OS/2 icon.

Parameters / options explained
  • The statement "-Duser.home=[drive: jpdfbookmarks]\jpdfbookmarks" will ensure that JPdfBookmarks will save all necessary files in own directory instead of saving them in the home directory.
  • The "-Xms64m" specify the initial size of the memory allocation pool. I got this from the jpdfbookmarks file(sh file).
  • The specification "-Xmx512m" comes from the old commandfile. The "-Xmx512m" indicates the maximum limit. I got this from the jpdfbookmarks file(sh file).
  • The addition "2>jpdfbookmarks-bugs.txt" ensures that errors are saved in the file "jpdfbookmarks-bugs.txt". The 2 in "2>" is not a typo!

In the file you can find the above command file (all driveletters are set to C:) and an OS/2 JPdfBookmarks icon:
