Installing a New Version of XpertMart
™ on a Macintosh
Installing a new version of XpertMart™ on a
Mac™ OS X is generally the same as
installing a new verison of XpertMart™ on a
. The only difference is that if you have
installed XpertMart™ from a .dmg file
, then the location of the XpertMart.jar file is different.
Normally the XpertMart.jar file is found in the
, but when you install from a .dmg file (this is the case if you download
the XpertMart demo from our web site or if you use our Installation CD) then
the XpertMart.jar file is actually at this location:
The Mac™ Finder hides the ".app" extension.
In your /Main directory you will only see a file called "XpertMart." You
need to right-click or Control-click on this file and chose the "Show Package
Contents" option. You will see a folder called "Contents". Double-click on
this folder and open the folder Resources and you will see a folder called
"Java". When you open this last folder you will see the XpertMart.jar file--
this is the file you want to replace when upgrading to a new version.
The /Main/XpertMart.app/Contents/Resources/Java directory also contains
a set of .ini files. These files are where all of your configuration settings
Note that the alternative is to install the new XpertMart.jar file directly
on the /Main directory. If you do this you will need to also copy
over the .ini files from the /Main/XpertMart.app/Contents/Resources/Java
directory or you will lose your configuration setting. Once you have copied
them over you should erase the XpertMart.app file (which will appear only
as "XpertMart" and should not be confused with the "XpertMart.jar" file).
Otherwise there is the potential to mix-up the two versions and have two
competing configurations. If you erase the XpertMart.app file you may also
have to change the Java
version to 1.3
