Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Is someone interested in the ACS 4.x Java Chat Module for openacs 3.2.x?

Hello Rocael,

I just installed your java chat and it works great...

Just a minor thing:

1. You have something hardcoded in the proc chat_start_server

java -classpath /web/jchat/www/chat/java adChatServer start $port &

should be

java -classpath /web/yourserver/www/chat/java adChatServer start $port &

2. I installed j2sdk1.4.0 instead of jdk1.3.1_02 (showld be okay shouldn't it?)


I am pretty new to java and I tried to change some little things in the applet like translating the buttons "Ignore" "PM" etc. to their German equivalent, but it didn't really work...

1. Stopped the chat server with "java -classpath MyClassPath adChatServer stop MyPort"

2. I deleted all *.class from chat/java

3. Changed the appropriate .java files

4. Compiled all .java files with "javac *.java" (Get a little error message, which is not too important (isn't it?): warning: getFontMetrics(java.awt.Font) in java.awt.Toolkit has been deprecated
fm_normal = toolkit.getFontMetrics(font_normal);

5. Restarted the chat server with "java -classpath MyClassPath adChatServer start MyPort"

But NOTHING changes....
