Jblob package download


Click here to download Jblob V2.0.10.

If you have Jblob 2.0.5 or 2.0.9 already installed you can download the updated file here, just replace the old file in the installation directory with the downloaded one.
Installation prerequisites

Jblob needs an installed Java Runtime Environment (either JRE or JDK of version 6 or above).

Please note: GCJ is NOT supported! If you install a Sun JDK/JRE in addition to a pre-installed gcj-based java distribution make sure to change the global JAVA_HOME environment variable to the new setting.

You can download the Java Runtime Environment at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html.

  1. Download the program archive linked above. This file contains all files neccessary for use with Windows and Unix.
  2. Extract the contents of the archive to the desired installation directory.
  3. Unix/Linux: Edit the lines containing 'JBLOB_HOME' and 'JAVA_HOME' in the jblob script.
    Windows: Edit the lines containing 'JBLOB_HOME' and 'JAVA_HOME' in the jblob.bat batch script.
Changes for use with HTTP-Proxies

This is only necessary if your internet connection requires use of a proxy!

The java options "-Dhttp.proxyHost" and "-Dhttp.proxyPort" can be used to enable jblob connections over http-proxies.

For unix/linux systems add the following options to the last line of the jblob script (before the 'de.dkrz.cera.applications.JblobClient "$@"' part)

-Dhttp.proxyHost=<your_proxy_host> -Dhttp.proxyPort=<your_proxy_port>

For windows systems add the following options to the last line of the jblob.bat batch script (before the 'de.dkrz.cera.applications.JblobClient %*' part

-Dhttp.proxyHost=<your_proxy_host> -Dhttp.proxyPort=<your_proxy_port>
