Notes about Environment (macOS)
Given below is a list of important folders in your StyleVision Server setup.
The environment settings file must be defined according to your specific environment. The example path above serves only as a general guide.
On MacOS, the following database connections are supported:
•JDBC — You can use JDBC for all supported databases except Microsoft Access
•Native connections — Currently available for SQLite and PostgreSQL databases
If you are using JDBC, note the following points:
•The Java Runtime Environment or SDK must be installed.
•The JDBC-Connects for the target database must be installed.
•The following environment variables must be set correctly for your environment:
οCLASSPATH: to find the jar-files; the class path is set in the Plist file.
οPATH: to find the JRE, but might not be necessary depending on the installation
οJAVA_HOME: if necessary, depending on the installation
Java 6 for fillable PDF forms
If the fillable parts of a fillable PDF are missing when the PDF is opened on a Mac OS system, one likely cause is that Java 6 is not installed on the machine. If this is the case, you can install Java 6 from https://support.apple.com/kb/dl1572?locale=en_US. If a version newer than Java 6 has already been installed, then the installation of the older Java 6 version will not affect the working of the newer version, which will be the default version of the system.
