SWING UI not supported by VM ? changing to AWT ?

Post by JohnC » 2007/05/07 09:17:24

Swing and AWT are graphical user interfaces used by java. AWT is older. Swing was introduced in java 1.2 in Sun's versions of java.
CentOS uses gcj which is an open source version of java. gcj uses AWT and not swing. Therefore when your install can't find swing it reverts to trying AWT.

It seems to be failing because libXp.so.6 doesn't exist. On CentOS 4 this is provided by package xorg-x11-deprecated-libs.i386.
You could try 'yum install xorg-x11-deprecated-libs' and then try installing again.

If that doesn't work you could try using Sun's version of java which includes the swing UI. You can download this from java.sun.com. I've used version 1.5 which worked ok.

Hope that helps.

Dear Mr. / Mrs. JohnC,

I've followed your advice. I've checked and found that the JRE installed is JRE1_5_09.
therefore i executed 'yum install xorg-x11-deprecated-libs' with exception that
I typed 'yum install xorg-x11-deprecated-libs.i386' to match the machine.

Thank you for you help. The application can be installed sucesfully now. :-D
