README file for the jMule release 'absolute-alpha-rc0'

Target audience.
This version/release of the jMule is *not* addressed to a widely audience. At least you should know the following buzzwords: 'java', 'root' ( if running under 'unix' or 'linux' in particular ), 'jar' and, very important, 'proper bug reporting'. In other words you should be an interested ( java ) software developer or a computer geek at least.

Prerequisites
You should have installed at least the JRE 1.4.1 for proper operation. But we are interested in your experiences running the jMule with something other as JRE 1.4.1. In particular running it at other system as Microsoft Windows(tm) would be very interesting to hear about. Just try the '--noVerCheck' option to bypass the java version checking at start-up.
Also you should have installed an eDonkey server or an eDonkey client ( *not* only jMule icon_smile.gif ).

Installation & 'The First Run'
Just check out the current release with the tag 'absolute-alpha-rc0' from cvs( http://sourceforge.net/cvs/?group_id=63021 ). Cd to the newly created directory and compile with ant. Than you can run the proper start script for your operating system from the 'bin' directory ( 'bin\jMule.bat' for windows and 'bin/jMule.sh' for unix ( as I write this text the unix starter script is not really working at the moment. Feel free to fix this up and post the patch our way. If the script for your operating system isn't working at the moment, try this: 'java -cp "build/classes/;./libs/bsh-1.2b7.jar" org.jmule.core.Main --help' ).
( Then follow the instruction given to you by the started script. Note: as of 12012003 you shouldn't rely too much on the starter scripts. ) In particular it is very important to do the '--cmd install' ( or just 'install' at the "jMule>" prompt ), because without this jMule will throw an ugly exception saying it cannot find its configuration file. When askend for the 'AutoConnectEnabled' value you should answer with yes or true, because in the opposite case, jMule will *not* try to connect to the network.

'The Second Run' or just 'Back To the Usual Business'
Please report all the strange behaviour, exception stack traces or whatever else to us by using the jmule.sourcefourge.net's bug tracker ( http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?atid=502603&group_id=63021&func=browse ). Of course we would be glad to accept some patches too ( by using the http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?atid=502605&group_id=63021&func=browse ? ) icon_wink.gif If you have got some funny ideas, we have a feature request tracer ( http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?atid=502606&group_id=63021&func=browse ) too. But: take your time to read the already posted/submitted bugs or features. Don't pollute the trackers by some multiple postings. Thanks.
Don't forget: the name of the release is 'absolute-alpha'. This is the first release to the ( widely ) public: be nice to the software, but say us if it was naughty so we can teach it some refined manners. At the moment you really do *not* want to use the jMule as a replacement of your favourite p2p tool ( I doubt, it is at all possible icon_smile.gif ), because you could harm the network or just mess your files up. So watch out.

Things to know:
-serverlist server.met and edonkeyservers.xml are loaded on start-up
-jMule rehash at startup all files to share icon_sad.gif
-you have to save the ed2k serverlist before close and load downloads after start-up ( by using the 'ed2kserver savelist' command ).

Known issues:
-sometimes negative times for source next retry

Take a look at doc/features.txt and doc/TODO too.

That's all. Have fun and give it a try.

absolute-alpha-rc0 is deprecated.
You should use current cvs HEAD till release.
