Vamp CD Installer

You need to have Java Web Start installed to launch Venus Application Publisher. You can get Java Web Start for free at Sun's Java Web Start third-party link product page. If your platform is not supported by Sun's Java Web Start (e.g. Macintosh OS 9), you can try OpenJNLP third-party link, a free, open-source Java Web Start clone in 100 % pure Java that should run almost anywhere except on your stair master.

Once you have downloaded vamp-installer.jar you can launch Venus Application Publisher by typing:

java -jar vamp-installer.jar


java -cp vamp-installer.jar venus.installer.Tool

The installer will start a web-service on port 5151 and launch Venus Application Publisher using Java Web Start by requesting http://<your_machine_here>:5151/venus.jnlp (e.g. http://vetliner:5151/venus.jnlp) to be displayed in your browser which will be served up by the installer from the vamp-installer.jar itself.

If you want to install Venus Application Publisher on multiple machines, you just have to start the installer once. Once the installer is running, everybody can launch Venus Application Publisher by pointing their browser to http://<your_machine_here>:5151/venus.jnlp.

Note, that Venus Application Publisher Beta 6 will expire on March, 31st, 2002.
