TSpaces

Downloading TSpaces

TSpaces is obtained from the IBM AlphaWorks site. There are two paths to the TSpaces download image on Alphaworks. You can start at the Alphaworks home page and work your way down, or you can go directly to the TSpaces page and click on the download button.

We created both a zip file (which is compressed down to about 1500kb at last count) and a tar file (which is left uncompressed at about 5000kb) for those few remaining folks that don't have zip. We don't have easy access to Apple computers here, so if there's a better representation for Apples, we could use some help in generating it. These zip or tar files contain the required jar files for the server and the clients plus the JavaDoc API information and the source for a number of example clients.

For both the tar and zip files, the TSpaces project files will expand out into a tspaces directory and other subdirectories. Unzip the file tspaces.zip onto your system into a directory of your choice.

After extracting the tspaces files, under a directory of your choice, there will be a new tspaces directory that has the structure shown below. If, for example, you unziped into c:\java\ on your Win95 system, then you would have:

c:\java\
   tspaces\
       index.html
       bin\
         tspaces.bat
         tspaces.sh
         ...
       html\
         Welcome.html
         ...
         javadoc\
       classes\
       contrib\
       examples\
       lib\
         tspaces.jar
         tspaces_client.jar

To start the TSpaces server, you would make the above tspaces directory the current directory and then run:

   "bin\tspaces.bat" 
or
   "sh bin/tspaces.sh"
