  • WFS Cascade
  • Curves support for GML and WMS
  • Advanced projection handling for raster
  • Coverage Views

Re: GeoServer 2.6-beta released

Re: Blog link referenced for GeoServer 2.6-beta release

Couldn't see how to create a jira account to comment on the ticket, but in the blog post https://jira.codehaus.org/browse/GEOS-6588 is referenced for this release (specifically Geoserver.app running under JDK 7 on OS X).

I ran into this issue - it's actually a problem with the plist entry from Oracle - 
look at the Info.plist that comes from oracle:
/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7{version}.jdk/Contents/Info.plist

find the JVMCapabilities key - it should look like this:
<key>JVMCapabilities</key>
                        <array>
                              <string>CommandLine</string>
                        </array>

change it to this: 
<key>JVMCapabilities</key>
                        <array>
                              <string>JNI</string>
                              <string>BundledApp</string>
                              <string>WebStart</string>
                              <string>Applets</string>
                              <string>CommandLine</string>
                        </array>

alternatively is you start it with a bash script (i.e. java -jar .....)  it works fine.

That's good information that we might want to put in the blog, or somewhere else so that
people interested in testing the 2.6-beta release on OSX can move on.

However, I'm weary of making such kind of global change in the GeoServer installer,
as this might have un-intended system wide issues (like, applets execution, where
none was intended, maybe for security reasons).

Cheers

Re: GeoServer 2.6-beta released

jody.garnett
In reply to this post by Chris Bennight
Thanks Chris, I am trying to understand your comment.

So this is not the plist inside the GeoServer.App, but the plist inside the JDK that is an issue? If we switched to the JRE would this issue be resolved...

I suppose the string "BundledApp" is the entry we actually need added, rather than only command line.

I know some applications (indeed any application that is sold through the Apple store) include a JDK as part of their bundle. We could take this approach for GeoServer but it would be a bit of a hit to download size.

Given that not many people will have installed Java 7 this approach may actually be a good idea?
