Jindent is shipped with native installers. Therefore you have to download the Jindent package which is suitable for your operating system. The installer is able to install all Jindent's core components including the Jindent IDE plugins.

Jindent is available as:

  • Installer package for all Windows systems
  • Installer package for Unix systems (Linux, Solaris, etc)
  • Installer package for Mac OS
  • Pure Java package without any installer
Windows, Unix, Linux, Solaris, Mac OS

Since Jindent is written in pure Java it needs at Java Runtime Environment 1.4.2 or later for a proper execution. For that reason the most packages are available with a bundled JRE which will be installed together with Jindent. If at least the Java Runtime Environment 1.4.2 is already installed on your operating system then you can download the package without any bundled JDK.

Invoking Installer with UI

First download the correct package for your operating system. Depending on your operating system you can start the installer by clicking on its icon or alternatively by invoking the installer from your console:

  • Windows systems: Installer.exe
  • Linux/Unix systems: sh

Invoking Installer without UI

The Jindent installer is able to proceed an installation without showing any graphical user interface. This is called 'silent' or 'unattended' installation.

Invoking the silent installer in your console with the following command line:

  • Windows systems: Installer.exe -q -dir "C:\Program Files\Jindent"
  • Linux/Unix systems: sh -q -dir "~/Jindent"

The parameter after -dir must be the desired installation directory. If the installation was successful, the exit code of the installer will be 0, otherwise it will be 1.

This features is available for installers of all operating systems.
