JSNMPWalker and Java 6

The JSNMPWalker application has been built for Java 7 and above. However, we would like to provide some solutions to those users who still run machines with Java 6 installed.

Install Java 7 or above alongside Java 6

[ Too much read, I want to see some installers ]

Running JSNNPWalker jar file in a command line

If you can't change the default version of Java on your machine, you still can run other versions of Java using the absolute path.

NOTE for Mac users: Java 7 or above are not available for OS X versions 10.6 and below.

  1. Download and install JRE packages for Java 7 or above for your operating system from the Oracle Java website. Don't change the JAVA_HOME environment variable from the old value.
  2. Download JSNMPWalker-v2.6.jar . Save it in a folder of your choice, for example make a directory "jsnmpwalker" in your HOME folder and copy it there.
  3. For Windows Users

    • Locate the folder where Java or above is installed. For Windows, the default folder for all Java installations would be either C:\Program Files\Java or C:\Program Files (x86)\Java . For example, a Java 7 folder: C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin

      Open a command prompt, navigate to the folder with Java 7 or above and verify that the version number is correct. Type in the command line:

      > cd path\to\jre\bin > java -version

      The version should be 1.7 or above.

    • In the command prompt navigate to the folder where you saved the JSNMPWalker jar file.

      > cd path\to\JSNMPWalker\jar

      For example:

      > cd C:\Users\Mike\jsnmpwalker

    • Run the JSNMPWalker application using the absolute path to the Java 7 installation

      > path\to\jre7\bin\java -jar JSNMPWalker-v2.6.jar

      For example:

      > "C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\java" -jar JSNMPWaker-v2.6.jar

      Don't forget about quotes if you have gaps in your Java path!

    • (Optional) Set an environment variable to the alternative Java path. Run in the command line:

      > SET JAVA7_HOME=path\to\jre7\bin

      Run the application

      > %JAVA7_HOME%\java -jar JSNMPWalker-v2.6.jar

  4. For Linux Users

    • Locate the folder where Java 7 or above is installed. To see all Java versions available, open a terminal and run:

      > sudo update-alternatives --list java

      It might be for example /usr/lib/jvm/jre7/bin/java

    • In the terminal navigate to the folder where you saved the JSNMPWalker jar file.

      > cd /path/to/JSNMPWalker/jar

      For example:

      > cd /home/mike/jsnmpwalker

    • Run the JSNMPWalker application using the absolute path of the Java 7 installation

      > /path/to/jre/bin/java -jar JSNMPWalker-v2.6.jar

      For example:

      > /usr/lib/jvm/jre7/bin/java -jar JSNMPWaker-v2.6.jar

    • (Optional) Set an environment variable to the alternative Java path. Add this statement to your .bashrc file or whatever configuration file you prefer (~/.bash_profile, ~/.profile).

      > export JAVA7_HOME=path\to\jre7\bin

      Run the application

      > $JAVA7_HOME/java -jar JSNMPWalker-v2.6.jar

  5. For Mac Users

    • Java versions on Mac are typically installed into

      /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/

      Locate a folder with Java 7 or above. For example, a path to Java 1.7.0 will be

      /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.7.0/Home/bin

    • In the terminal navigate to the folder where you saved the JSNMPWalker jar file.

      > cd /path/to/JSNMPWalker/jar

      For example:

      > cd /home/mike/jsnmpwalker

    • Run the JSNMPWalker application using the absolute path of the Java 7 installation

      > /path/to/jre/bin/java -jar JSNMPWalker-v2.6.jar

      For example:

      > /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.7.0/Home/bin/java -jar JSNMPWaker-v2.6.jar

    • (Optional) Set an environment variable to the alternative Java path. Add this statement to your .bashrc file or whatever configuration file you prefer (~/.bash_profile, ~/.profile).

      > export JAVA7_HOME=path\to\jre7\bin

      Run the application

      > $JAVA7_HOME/java -jar JSNMPWalker-v2.6.jar

      Alternativelly, you can set your environment variables in ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist

Java 1.6 Packages

We also recompiled the application for Java 6 , the packages can be downloaded from below.

NOTE: although we will continue working on the compatibility, those versions are provided AS IS and might not have the full functionality.
