Manually setting up Squish for Java 6.1 and higher

For Squish 6.1 and higher see:

Manually setting up Squish for Java 6.0.x, 64-bit on Linux

Sometimes it is required to set up Squish without using its setup program. The following instructions explain how to do this for Squish for Java 6.0.x.

Step 1 - Create a file called .squish-3-license in the home directory of the user (typically %USERPROFILE% on Windows, and $HOME on Unix) and insert the Squish license key into it.

Step 2 - Delete <SQUISH_DIR>/bin/.not_configured

Step 3 - Generate <SQUISH_DIR>/lib/squishrt.jar:

java -classpath "<SQUISH_DIR>/lib/squishjava.jar:<SQUISH_DIR>/lib/bcel.jar" "com.froglogic.squish.awt.FixMethod" "<JAVA_DIR>/lib/rt.jar:<SQUISH_DIR>/lib/squishjava.jar" "<SQUISH_DIR>/lib/squishrt.jar"
Execute in a shell

Step 4 - Create entry “JavaHooking” in <SQUISH_CONFIG>/ver1/server.ini

bin/squishserver --config setJavaHookMethod java-options
Execute in a shell; while in Squish folder

Step 5 - Create entry JavaVM in <SQUISH_CONFIG>/ver1/server.ini

bin/squishserver --config setJavaVM "<JAVA_DIR>/bin/java"
Execute in a shell; while in Squish folder

Step 6 - Create entry JavaVersion in <SQUISH_CONFIG>/ver1/server.ini

bin/squishserver --config setJavaVersion "<JAVA_VERSION_STRING>"
Execute in a shell; while in Squish folder

(<JAVA_VERSION_STRING> stands for the version string output by “java -version” of the JRE executing the application, for example “1.8.0_71” (without double quotes).)

Step 7 - Create entry JavaWebStart in <SQUISH_CONFIG>/ver1/server.ini

bin/squishserver --config setJavaWebStart "<JAVA_DIR>/bin/java"
Execute in a shell; while in Squish folder

Step 8 - Create entry LibJVM in <SQUISH_CONFIG>/ver1/server.ini

bin/squishserver --config setLibJVM "<JAVA_DIR>/lib/amd64/server/libjvm.so"
Execute in a shell; while in Squish folder

Manually setting up Squish for Java 6.0.x on Windows

Execute in cmd.exe

Step 4 - Create entry “JavaHooking” in <SQUISH_CONFIG>\ver1\server.ini

bin\squishserver --config setJavaHookMethod java-options
Execute in cmd.exe; while in Squish folder

Step 5 - Create entry JavaVM in <SQUISH_CONFIG>\ver1\server.ini

bin\squishserver --config setJavaVM "<JAVA_DIR>\bin\javaw.exe"
Execute in cmd.exe; while in Squish folder

Step 6 - Create entry JavaVersion in <SQUISH_CONFIG>/ver1/server.ini

bin\squishserver --config setJavaVersion "<JAVA_VERSION_STRING>"
Execute in cmd.exe; while in Squish folder

(<JAVA_VERSION_STRING> stands for the version string output by “java -version” of the JRE executing the application, for example “1.8.0_71” (without double quotes).)

Step 7 - Create entry JavaWebStart in <SQUISH_CONFIG>\ver1\server.ini

bin\squishserver --config setJavaWebStart "<JAVA_DIR>\bin\javaws.exe"
Execute in cmd.exe; while in Squish folder

Step 8 - Create entry LibJVM in <SQUISH_CONFIG>\ver1\server.ini

If <JAVA_DIR>\bin\client\jvm.dll exists:

bin\squishserver --config setLibJVM "<JAVA_DIR>\bin\client\jvm.dll"
Execute in cmd.exe; while in Squish folder

If <JAVA_DIR>\bin\client\jvm.dll does not exist, but <JAVA_DIR>\bin\server\jvm.dll exists:

bin\squishserver --config setLibJVM "<JAVA_DIR>\bin\server\jvm.dll"
Execute in cmd.exe; while in Squish folder

Here is a batch file that can be put into the Squish folder and which performs the above steps. Prior to use it must be edited to have proper values for ARG_JAVA_DIR and ARG_JAVA_VERSION_STRING: setup-squish-java.bat
