Thanks to Sean Corfield. i've got a working OS X development machine! JRun 4. CF7. and MySQL are all up and happily running. I put Eclipse on there a few weeks ago too. Sean. your instructions were perfect! Not a single problem. Last time I tried I did not succeed. but that was because the machine really needed an OS upgrade to function properly.
Now to move one of my apps off my ThinkPad and onto that machine and see how well things work. Clearly i'll have to get Apache configured as well. but at least for now we're one step closer to having a backup development box.
Also coming this week: 1) Summer programming intern! 2) New Dell workstation/server! 3) Completion of one of our 6 July projects!
And a lovely day it is outside too.
