JM on Tiger

Yea! Finaly i got set up messenger on MacOSX Tiger.

It is just running from the messenger.sh script but it works realy nice.

This is realy an alternative if you like to get your own XMPP-Server without having MacOSX Tiger Server.

More on how to setup JM as a service on Tiger soon.

here is summary that i tried:

1: install J2SE 5.0 (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=301073-en)

2: download jive_messenger_2_1_3.tar.gz ( Linux / Unix Builds )

3: make install directory ( ex: /usr/local/jive_messenger ) and expand archive (with terminal).

4: edit /usr/local/jive_messenger/bin/messenger line 3 like this:

INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME_OVERRIDE=/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Version s/1.5.0/Home

( “/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5.0/Home” is JAVA_HOME)

5: /usr/local/jive_messenger/bin/messenger start

6: access your Admin Console ( on web browser.

Thank you utaani.

This was my idea, too. But i liked to post a solution with a startupitem script.

So tiger could crash and messanger would be running after a reboot without any help by the user.

Sadly my solution didn’‘t work on the first run. Now I don’'t have time to do anything with jm (even with my own installation). So thanks a lot for posting your solution.
