installation of BbnOrganiser happens in 2 steps. Because BbnOrganiser is a java
application, firstly the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) must be installed. This
needs to be done only once. Then, the program BbnOrganiser must be
1. Installation of Java Runtime Environment.
2. Installation of BbnOrganiser.
The main Java program in the BbnOrganiser.jar archive is called BbnOrganiser.class . This program is NOT an applet, so that it is impossible to run it in a web browser. Instead, you can start it by a shell command as follows:
java -jar BbnOrganiser.jar
Windows users can enter from a DOS shell:
javaw.exe -jar BbnOrganiser.jar
provided that the javaw.exe is in the execution path, what should be the case after installing the Java Runtime Environment.
Windows users can start the program in 2 alternative ways:
1. Double click the BbnOrganiser.jar file.
2. It would be even easier by linking file extension *.bbn to the BbnOrganiser.jar file. So, double clicking a bbn file starts the program automatically. This can be configured as follows:
In the Explorer, select Tools / Folder Options, and then the tab FileTypes.
Click New and
"C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.5.8_08\bin\javaw.exe" -jar "C:\<install_dir>\BbnOrganiser.jar" "%1"
