What is JPDF Viewer?
A simple PDF Viewer that allows you to be able to view, print and extract the contents of your pdf file in just a few clicks. You can export the contents of the pdf in svg format or txt. The Viewer is also equipped with a handy utility panel with search functions, thumbnails and annotations.
Installing JPDF Viewer
Download jpdfviewer.jar. Make a directory/map with the name "jpdfviewer". Copy the file "jpdfviewer.jar" to the directory "jpdfviewer". That's all!
The used cmd file
JPDF Viewer works with Open JDK in OS/2-eCS, but there still some issues. I have a jpdfviewer.cmd file with the following contents;
@echo off set BEGINLIBPATH=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin set path=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin set CLASSPATH= [drive: jpdfviewer] cd [drive: jpdfviewer]\jpdfviewer java -Duser.home=[drive: jpdfviewer]\jpdfviewer -jar jpdfviewer.jar 2>jpdfviewer-bugs.txtI use 2 separate folders (directories), one for Java and one for JPDF Viewer with the files created by this program. The references used in the cmd file;
should be replaced with real drive letters. Save the file and name it "jpdfviewer.cmd" or use the file from the distribution. This file is copied to the "jpdfviewer" folder (directory). Furthermore, different paths?, adjust according to your needs. Create a new program object. Specify the path and file name: "[drive: jpdfviewer]\jpdfviewer\jpdfviewer.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 "JPDF Viewer".
Parameters / options explained
In the file you can find the above command files (all drive letters are on set to C:) and an OS/2 jpdfviewer icon: jpdfviewer-ecs.zip.
