[ANN] Native mac installer for JRuby 1.5.0

Hi,

I just released a version of the JRuby mac installer updated to JRuby
1.5.0,
you can grab it from here:

http://github.com/calavera/jruby-mac-installer/downloads

Please, give it a try!!

Cheers

Installed OK on my MacBook Pro 17" 2009 edition. Thanks!

Will this be available from the JRuby download page?

I hve no objection to adding this to our downloads and release
process, if it’s working well now.

David: Did you get uninstall to work too? I think that was the last
thing missing before we could officially bless it…

Yes, there is an uninstaller, but it’s quite weird because it’s packed
as
another installer into the dmg. It works fine but for future versions
I’d
like to create an Applescript or something like that to do the work and
bundle it into the same installer package.

I second that. The uninstall script should be available after install,
not as a separate dmg. Is there a convention for where an uninstall
script should be placed?

Also, could the installer for JRuby 1.6.0 handle optional uninstall of
JRuby 1.6.0? Only one JRuby installation can be default, and most users
will only want one version of JRuby installed at one time, so the
installer should offer to uninstall older versions. Doable?

I suppose you meant “uninstall 1.5.0” XD.

Actually there isn’t any convention about uninstallers in the mac world
because you can get rid of most of the applications just dragging them
into
the trash. Perhaps a fine solution could be create a directory under
/Applications/Utilities to contain a kind of script/application to
uninstall
jruby, but I don’t have any experience developing mac applications, so I
need some time. Any contribution is welcome, of course :slight_smile:

The information I have about uninstalling pkg-installed libraries
comes from here:

http://forums.macnn.com/90/mac-os-x/79419/how-to-uninstall-a-pkg/

Basically, the installer appears to put an uninstall pkg thingy in
/Library/Receipts.

Yes, the 1.6.0 installer should offer to uninstall 1.5.0 :slight_smile:
