The Semi-Rookie Rides again - Runtime Doc?

Postby RonG » Wed Jun 20, 2012 5:24 pm

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone knows of a source for more complete documentation on the use of the Servoy Runtime? In the past several versions of Servoy (from 6 back to the various incarnations of 5), the Runtime documentation has consisted of 3 lines of text that's been copied from one version to the next. Regardless of how intuitive the Runtime Builder may or may not be, it would still be helpful to have some background information that discusses how the Runtime Builder is used, what is going on behind the scenes, etc etc. Originally trained as an engineer, it makes my head hurt when I have to make guesses as to what's going on :)

As always, thanks for any guidance that you might be able to provide.

Have a good day.

Hi Ron,

All the documentation you need in my opinion is:

1. Make a small test solution based on a PostgreSQL example_database.
2. Choose File - Export
3. Choose Servoy - Runtime Builder
4. Choose an output path
5. Enter the license details, if you don't it will work for 5 minutes only.
6. Press Finish

Background info

    Everything you need will be distributed into your output path.
    When you doubleclick the servoy_runtime.jar, the application checks if the necessary Java Runtime Libraries are present and installs them if necessary.
    Note that the app only runs on the platform that it was generated on.
    The first time when I used it I didn't have license details filled in in Servoy Developer and it complained about connecting to the database. After I filled them in it worked fine. I don't no if that's a requirement.

Are you experiencing any difficulties?

Hi Omar,

I'm sorry that it took me so long to acknowledge your message.

Actually, I wasn't having any problems, I was just trying to understand the exact mechanics of the runtime builder, since there isn't much in the way of documentation available. But, that was mostly for my own learning, not because of a problem.

I have to get some updated keys from my friends at Servoy, but at that point, I think that things will be just fine.

Thanks again for your response.
