2.12. Installing Kodo into JBuilder

To install Kodo support in JBuilder 7 and higher, just copy all the .jar files from the lib/ directory of your Kodo installation to the lib/ext/ directory of JBuilder, and copy the lib/KodoJDO.library to JBuilder's lib/ directory. For example, if Kodo is installed in C:\development\kodo\ and JBuilder is installed in C:\JBuilder\, then you would copy all the .jar files from C:\development\kodo\lib\ to C:\JBuilder\lib\ext\, and then copy the C:\development\kodo\lib\KodoJDO.library file to C:\JBuilder\lib\.

Additionally, you must enter your Kodo license key into the Kodo configuration panel within JBuilder. You can open the configuration panel by clicking on the "K" icon in the toolbar. The information entered in this configuration panel is used by the Kodo development tools integrated into JBuilder, such as the Kodo enhancer and the mapping tools.

To validate the installation, you should start (or restart) JBuilder 7 or higher. You should see the Kodo logo in the build toolbar, which is used to configure the Kodo installation.

Note: If you use the Windows Installer program to install Kodo, and you elected to perform the "Install Kodo JBuilder extensions", then you do not need to perform the manual file copying or any other additional steps.

Warning: The Kodo JBuilder OpenTool only works in JBuilder 7 and higher. It will not work in releases of JBuilder prior to version 7.
