To install EMBASSY

The easiest method (since EMBOSS-2.7) is to get the Jemboss installation script to install these in. If you want to install them manually then read on.

See EMBOSS administration documents.

Adding installed EMBASSY packages to Jemboss

Jemboss creates the program menus by running 'wossname'. A speed up is included whereby the the output of wossname is wrapped with the client, so that wossname need not be run on the server each time the client is launched. When the install script is run it creates 'wossname.jar' in $EMBOSS_INSTALL/share/EMBOSS/jemboss/resources.

To add embassy packages to Jemboss, after running the installation script and then installing embassy packages, wossname.jar needs to be updated for them to appear in the menus. This can be done as follows:

cd $EMBOSS_INSTALL/share/EMBOSS/jemboss/resources
mv wossname.jar wossname.jar_old
$EMBOSS_INSTALL/bin/wossname -colon -gui -outf wossname.out -auto
jar cvf wossname.jar wossname.out

Now try running the client:

cd $EMBOSS_INSTALL/share/EMBOSS/jemboss

the installed EMBASSY packages should now appear in the Jemboss interface. If you have a web launch page, you will need to re-run makeJNLP.sh.
