The VO-CLI Tools are distributed as a GZip-compressed tar file containing
pre-built binaries, source code, or documentation. A binary distribution is
all that is required in order to use the software. Use the
right-click 'Save As' on your browser to download one of the distributions
from the links below. See also the System Requirements and
Installation Instructions sections below for additional information.
- A Java 1.5 Runtime Environment is
required to run the VOClient daemon.
- The Linux and Mac OSX binary distributions should run on any recent
version of that operating system.
- A distribution for Microsoft Windows XP running Cygwin is in preparation. Windows Vista
is not supported at this time.
- Task excecutables should be entirely self-contained, there are no known
shared library dependencies.
- After installation, the 'voclient.jars' directory MUST be
in the same directory as
the 'voclientd' command script.
VO-CLI is distributed as a GZip compressed tarball of either the
source, or pre-built binaries for a particular platform.
See the README file for a complete list of the contents in the source
To Install from Source:
- Create a directory for the source, and unpack the distirbution tar file:
% mkdir /path/vo-cli # create directory
% cd /path/vo-cli # go there
% tar zxf /path/vocli-src.tar.gz # unpack the distrbution
- Compile the package:
% make # Do the compilation
% make install # install to package bin
- Optionally, copy the binaries to a system directory. In most cases
this will require root permission in order to do it. Assuming you
want to install in /usr/local/bin, something like the following
% su # become 'root'
# cp -rp bin/* voclient.jars /usr/local/bin # copy binaries
To Install from a Binary Distribution:
- Create a temporary directory to unpack the files:
% mkdir /tmp/vo-cli # create temp directory
% cd /tmp/vo-cli # go there
% tar zxf /path/vocli-.tar.gz # unpack the distrbution
- Optionally, copy the binaries to a system directory. In most cases this
will require root permission in order to do it. Assuming you want to install
in /usr/local/bin, something like the following command:
% su # become 'root'
# cp -rp * /usr/local/bin # copy binaries
