FDS deployment on Mac OSX is not supported.
Will it ever be supported? We like the look of this product but want to remain a pure mac shop.
I can't speak for the future of supported platforms, but in the interim, have you tried running the installer on a supported platform and then just deploying the war file on a J2EE server on your Mac OS X machine for development purposes?
Out of pure curiosity I got it working on the same JRun4 server that comes bundle with ColdFusion 7.0x using the Unix version from the download page
I dont know if I am infringing any licensing terms but it is only a techie experiment. I would not want CF and FDS on the same server for performance reasons.
So far so good for experiments but sometimes the devil's in the details. If it is not officially supported maybe there is a good reason... maybe performance issues ??
I wonder if it would work with the Tomcat/JBOSS server bundled with OSX ???
Anyway FDS is a bit overkill for our needs now. I hope that Adobe will provide us with an OSX version soon so I can consider it for a future application.
Pete, thanks for the feedback. I'll try your suggestion.
I'm looking at Solaris 10 as a possible hardware/os deployment option since discovering Sun's future BlackBox data center (though that breaks with my all-mac shop rule). I haven't seen any forum entries on this. Has this been done?
I successfully installed FDS on my mac after doing the xalan fix for use with JBoss and installing it on window xp. I then copied over the fdsweb.war folder from my JBoss deploy folder to the deplo folder on my mac. Easy as that, works like a charm. Now if I only knew Java better.
Maybe try WebORB for ... if you master other programming languages.
