JRegexpTester needs :

  • a java virtual machine (JVM) version 1.4 or above JAVA
  • JRegexpTester jar executable : jregexptester.jar
  • five more jar files :hsqldb.jar,jhall.jar,jhelpaction.jar,liquidlnf.jar,junit.jar (all included into JRegexpTester0.36_setup.exe or

Java virtual machine

You can verify if a jvm 1.4 is installed typing in a console : java -version

C:\>java -version
java version "1.4.2"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2-b28)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2-b28, mixed mode)

You must verify also if the java compilator is installed. The java compilator is included into the J2SE SDK.

C:\>javac -help
Usage: javac ...
where possible options include:

You can download a free complete jvm from the : sun java download page

  • The shortest download file is : J2SE v 1.4.2_05 JRE includes the JVM technology
  • The complete download file is : J2SE v 1.4.2_05 SDK includes the JVM technology
  • The largest download file is : NetBeans IDE + J2SE SDK

The three above are good

Very important :

Since the release 0.3, you need the J2SE SDK if you want to compile the filters ('Split').
