Today I have added a totally different program to my site with Java programs. Its purpose is certainly among the discussions at the table today. Its called Weka and you can find it here or in Dutch

Have a picture too, might help ;-)

Have fun!

Today I have added a new program to my Java corner on my website and its called Extended Text Editor. Its not something like Word, but it is also not just another text editor. See for yourself. You can find the page in English here or in Dutch here

There is a picture too;

There is some kind of extended version, but the extension is in the types of files. More programming languages and alike. If I'm ready with that you will read it here  ;D.
Have fun,

As promised I have updated the page about JDiskReport. You can find the page here or in Dutch here
There is not much more to tell than that some pages can't be resized and the file with bugs contains normally no bugs but some log information.
So have fun,

I downloaded  jDiskReport 1.4.1 and installed it on my disk. Indeed it runs fine with our Java. Why it says Java 7/8 on download page beats me, in the readme you can read "JDiskReport 1.4.1 requires Java 6 or later. At least 64 MB
 of physical RAM is recommended to run JDiskReport.". I will update the page in the coming days, thanks for pointing me to this fact.
DocFetcher is an other thing. It hasn't a layout with a jar file and its setup for Windows, Linux and Apple. There are specific files for those three in two version 32 and 64. Don't know what these files do. So may be I have to go back to a version for specific Java 6 and see how to setup. My first attempts are not successful, but no complaints about Java version 6 so far.

Hi Pete and others,

There is a big change in the jar file jdiskreport-1.3.1_os2.jar  1.405.190, that is a big difference with jdiskreport-1.3.2.jar 1.860.633. Opening the jar tells me that this is not coming from JGoodies. JGoodies programs like this
and so on for everything.

Now with the claimed version 1.3.2 I found readable full names  like

Now you can't make something like the first and do something like the last. Somewhere you have to call those routines. And as JGoodies has all cut down to a, b, c ,d etc this is almost impossible, you have to decompile the source and your left with a,b ,c etc which makes it not easy to put in something like ExtBasicCheckBoxMenuItemUI.class on the right place. Also if someone is compiling his source down to something shown as a and a.class and so on, I can't believe that in a next version it will show full class names just on the last additions. 
And together with the explanation, which is totally bull in my opinion, this makes not that much difference in file size.

Some other strange thing; 1.211.554             715.806
This says to me that version 1.3.2 is zipped with a more efficient zipper, then why use a less efficient zipper with the source with as result a bigger file? In the end a jar file is nothing more then a zip file.

So I go the safe side and use jdiskreport-1.3.1_os2.jar. As far as my information goes the next version is 1.4.1, but we need a higher level of Java and is available on the JGoodies website.

Just my opinion,

Hi Pete,
If Mauro did download the file and it still gives version 1.3.1 then I don't trust the file with 1.3.2. Every developer doesn't forget to update such information as it is just text somewhere in the source.

Did start FF again and finally I could download the file. Beats me what did go wrong, can't find it. But if others have similar results with downloading, please report. Also report if a link to a file seems broken. Sometimes the source moves to other places.

still cannot access to download
That's not my place but a link to the file. I can download that file without problems. Did you try the link in a browser?,because I get the feeling that you tried it not from a browser.

@Joop: I initially misunderstood the instructions for using the applications on your pages. By reading too quick, my attention was limited to the file which contained the .cmd file and I was trying to run that file alone, also misleaded by the fact that I could not download the other one containing the real .jar executable object because a user+password is asked to access that file. Is that intentionally protected?
After this I moved on a couple of other java applications (Alle Day / ImageEditor) and I saw that they work just by choosing Open JDK item in the context menu of the .jar file , no need of object properties editing !

Joop, I like much the java apps on your pages, do you think that a free word processor at the level (o nearly) of Open Office will appear there in the future?
Thanks for the feed-back. I don't know what did go wrong. I use some kind of standard page setup and just fill in the text. That's done for page 1 to 140 (and counting ::)). So first I thought something did wrong in my setup, a failure which sneaky did get in, but no. Did compare with other pages, setup the same. Then I thought I had hit the limit on my space, but according FM/2 I have still one 1Gb left. I could not download the file. So strait to my account, file is there. But could not download it. So I uploaded the one on my harddrive (If anything happen I can replace my homepage immediately) to my account. Did start FF again and finally I could download the file. Beats me what did go wrong, can't find it. But if others have similar results with downloading, please report. Also report if a link to a file seems broken. Sometimes the source moves to other places.

If my pages are not understood or to difficult or something, please report. And please do tell me what's wrong. My native is Dutch and I setup the pages first in English and then translate them to Dutch  ;D. I have the feeling I did a decent job but...

Now your question of the word processor, problem 1 is that we still at OpenJDK 6. Problem 2, not all seems pure Java, sometimes specific files for Windows, Linux or Apple are included. In other words I have to compile a new dll if there is source for that file which is not always the case.  To make it worse.. having a dll, it is not said that it will work as code might be hard coded for those three. That brings me to problem 3, we don't have Eclipse. But the good thing is that I now know where to look for, but coming to problem 1, don't expect fancy things as Word was back then also not the level of today and "wordy"-things most times protected Microsoft stuff, so not to be included in a nice Java program.

@Mauro, thanks for visiting my pages. The beauty of OS/2 is that you can solve problems in many ways, unlike other systems you are not forced to one solution.
On the bottom of the page you can download a file with a command file and an OS/2 icon. I didn't read that you did that.
I will show you my file (not the one enclosed on the page)
@echo off
set path=d:\JAVA\JAVA160ga5\bin
cd I:\UTILS\jdiskreport
java -Duser.home=I:\UTILS\jdiskreport -jar jdiskreport-1.3.1_os2.jar 2>jdiskreport-bugs.txt

As you can see its very simple. I downloaded the zip files and don't install Java, I just unzip the zip file in a directory. I just make a new directory, in this case JAVA160ga5. It resides in the directory JAVA because I have all installed next to each other. It doesn't bite so to speak. The reason I did this is that I can change Java installation in a moment. In this way I test programs.

So the important thing to have is set BEGINLIBPATH and set PATH. Both have to point to the JAVA bin directory. I don't have anything in config.sys, only Java 11 which was from the original installation and is still there.
Next is to switch to the right directory with the program. So first I set the disk to i:. Next I set to \utils\jdiskreport.
In the line with java.... you can omit -Duser.home and you can omit 2>.....
Whats left is java -jar jdiskreport-1.3.1_os2.jar. That's all!
But this is with a command file, as you can read from others, other solutions. That's the nice thing with OS/2.

To give you an example how extreme this is, I just change 2 characters in the whole setup for testing with JAVA160ga4.

Hope it helps,

I have added yesterday to my site the Java program NumericalChameleon. It convert units. Most options do work, but due to differences in Java systems help doesn't work because the browser can't be found. However updating exchange_rates works. Its a huge program with lots of conversions and I didn't try them all. You can find the page here or in Dutch

The program looks like this;

Have fun!

I added yesterday the program "AllDay". Its a calendar with two options for color. That's it. It seems to pickup the right names for the months and abbreviations for the day. The program itself is English and there is no information if more languages can exist next to each other, only that you can translate it, but that could mean it is English, or its an other language. Comments could be "we have already such a program for OS/2". Yes I know, but this one shows different.
You can find it here or in Dutch

This is what you get;

Have fun!

I added yesterday a new Java program, its called JDiskReport. Thanks to Martin I got a file which did not show errors with unzipping. The program gives you a picture about your drives, how many files and with what age, when used etc. You can find the program here or in Dutch New versions of the program needs a higher version of Java.

It looks like this;

Looking around in the jar file for the possibility of translating it to Dutch I couldn't resist this joke;

Have fun!
