Windows RL, detect new JAR with a shim class inside
I am confident I have seen this come up before, but my google-fu fails me. So maybe someone rememebers.
I have a custom JAR, and in Linux RL's I just call the class by name.
Windows RL - File is in the lib directory with all the other shims, and I try to add a driver and my class is not in the list.
How do you make the WIndows RL tool rescan and see the new class? I remember seeing a thread on that topic but cannot find it.
I can edit the config file, specify the class, and it works. But the settings in the gUI are still wrong, they are stored in the registry, so I could go edit that to be correct as well. But I want it to work properly.
1. Just edit the text file by hand.
2. Add the jar to the registry.
I don't remember where but you should find it if you search for one of the others.
With a broken link to what is, I think, this thread here:
Joakim, can you paste in the specific part you are referring to? I see that link says edit the file and edit the registry. Which works, but I was hoping tehre was a way to make the Shim 'discoverable' by the RL somehow.
I asked Stephaan in email what he had to do. I shall report back here. I wonder if he means you need to build the JAR more like a TAR than a ZIP? Without compression? Not sure. Will get back when I find out more.
Thanks David, I will ask Rob next time he compiles the shim to try that. Curious to see if it works. Good thing these are small shims, so who cares about compression on a 1Meg or less file.
