Download HyperContent 2.0

If you haven't already got a copy of HyperContent, you can

Download and install dependencies

If you don't already have them, you'll need:

J2SE v 1.4.2 SDK

The J2SE Software Development Kit (SDK) is recommended over the Java Runtime Environment (JRE), as it supports compilation of the source files. HyperContent 2.0 will also compile and run in the JDK 5.0.

Apache Ant 1.6 +

Ant supports scripts for compiling the source, starting and stopping the embedded tomcat server. You will need to configure your environment for Ant.

Expand the HyperContent 2.0 release

If you downloaded the code from CVS, you can skip this step; the CVS tree has the same basic directory structure as the release and the startup instructions are the same for both.

WinZip 9 Warning:

There is a known bug with WinZip 9 that causes empty directories to be lost in expansion, breaking the included sample project repositories. If you are a WinZip 9 user, please upgrade to WinZip 10 or try a free alternative like Stuffit Expander.

Put the files somewhere

On Windows, you should make certain to put the files at a path with no spaces, e.g.

  contains hypercontent2/ and repositories/
