It said freeware, so here I am. I downloaded this OOPad111 from CDNET.com, something to play around with and hopefully learn a thing or two. I'm supposed to change one of the batch files over to my directories (evidently, I should know which one by looking at them.) And then run a .jar file from the command line. Well, I think I have the right files picked out: cpath.bat and OOPad.jar (an executable .jar file) So, I'm thinking, Should I incorporate cpath.bat into the classpath in AUTOEXEC.BAT, or rewrite the classpath in cpath.bat itself?? I'm thinking the former, but documentation sounds like it suggests the latter. Will not two set classpath statements cause conflict?? BTW - OPPad URL: http://home.i1.net/~paladin
This is what the setclass.bat file looked like. I do not know if any of this is helpful. (BTW, running argo has become a lot easier lately. http://argouml.tigris.org/ I just do this now java -jar argouml-0.8.1.jar )
set javalibroot=c:\jdk1.1.8\lib rem this is where I put my class files set classpath=. rem this is where jdk's standard classes are set classpath=%classpath%;%javalibroot%\classes.zip rem for ARGO UML rem set classpath=%classpath%;c:\argo\argouml070.jar set classpath=%classpath%;c:\MichaelsHD\argo\argouml070.jar rem this is needed for swing rem set classpath=%classpath%;%javalibroot%\swingall.jar rem set classpath=%classpath%;D:\Swing-1.1.1\swingall.jar set classpath=%classpath%;C:\Swing-1.1.1\swingall.jar rem set classpath=%classpath%;C:\argo\xml4j.jar set classpath=%classpath%;C:\MichaelsHD\argo\xml4j.jar @ECHO OFF

Micheal, Ah yes, I love the pain! I've had ArgoUML for a few days now, waiting to see if I could finally get OOPad working. I changed the classname in the Main-Class of the manifest to the .class file instead of the .java one. Then I copied the .zip file to a fresh folder, and went through Sun's tutorial and did every thing from the cmmd line. For now it's a lost cause. No time to fret, though. I was wondering, since you have ArgoUML, would you mind walking me through it? The readme doc says to change settings to uci, graphedit, and util, which are all folders??? I cannot see any batch files or a manifest file. I will start from the .zip download. Would you have time for this?

I do not follow everything you posted. all I had to do was java -jar argouml-0.8.1.jar
It's no biggie.....maybe when school's out I'll come back to it and play around some more. I still have to finish the 1.4 revision, too. I think when I am done with it I am going to take a break and practice methods for awhile, so I can get better at them. I probally had no business trying it in the first place. It sure seemed pretty simple until I started seeing conflicting information. I'll try to keep it simple next time.
