Since there is currently no DrJava application bundle for mac os, I thought I could be the one to make it because I want to use it anyway. From just searching on the internet I made the following application bundle:
- DrJava.app - MacOS DrJava # this is a shell script that runs java -jar drjava.jar drjava.jar - Resources DrJavaIcon.png DrJavaSearchIcon.png Info.plist
Info.plist looks like:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>CFBundleName</key> <string>DrJava</string> <key>CFBundleExecutable</key> <string>DrJava</string> <key>CFBundleIcon</key> <string>DrJavaIcon.png</string> </dict> </plist>
The issue with this is that when I try to run the app, it tells me that I need to install rosetta to do so. However this is simply not true. I can run
./DrJava and it will run perfectly fine without rosetta. My current guess is that there’s a key in
Info.plist that will indicate the architectures that are compatible with this bundle. But I haven’t been able to find any such thing.
PS: Due to personal reasons, I don’t want to make an Apple ID. As such I’m not trying to not install Xcode for as long as possible. I understand that this will make things more difficult, but I am committed.
