Installation of the 64-bit JobScheduler is almost identical to that of the 32-bit Version, which is described in our JobScheduler Master - Installation Guide.
The following additional requirements apply for the 64-bit version:
The 64-bit Beta version requires the following:
- Oracle™ Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 64-bit: at least version 1.6.x
- A shell in /bin/sh (or a symlink)
- The following 64-bit libraries:
In addition, two components (JOE (JobScheduler Object Editor) and JID (JobScheduler Information Dashboard)) of the JobScheduler are SWT applications and require an X Windows system and GTK2. The JobScheduler installation includes a 64-bit swt.jar but you still need the following 64-bit libraries:
Finally, we recommend that before starting the installation you set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to your 64-bit Java version (see “Requirements”, above).
