This section of the document tells you how to unpack, install, and test
the NetRexx translator package. This will install documentation,
samples, and executables.
Note that to run any of the samples, or use the NetRexx translator, you
must have already installed the Java runtime (and toolkit, if you want
to compile NetRexx programs using the default compiler).
The NetRexx samples and translator will run on Java version 1.1.2
or later. Java 1.2 or later is recommended, and is required if you want
to use the interpreter feature of the translator.
You can test whether Java is installed, and its version, by trying the
following command at a command prompt:
which should display a response similar to this:
java version "1.2"
Classic VM (build JDK-1.2-V, native threads)
For more information on Java installation:
For OS/2, AIX, and other IBM operating systems, Java is probably already
installed with your operating system. IBM Developer Kits for Java are
also available separately for AIX, Linux, AS/400, OS/2, OS/390, VM/ESA,
See the IBM Centre for
Java Technology web page at
The full list of downloadable IBM Developer Kits can be found at
For other operating systems, see the Sun Microsystems Java web
or other suppliers of Java toolkits.
||1.1.2 is required as the classes in the runtime and translator are now
compressed, to reduce load time.
