1Supplemental information for JOSM -- the Java OpenStreetMap Editor
4 I. Install & Launch
7Installation notes
9To run JOSM, you need:
11* The JOSM .jar file, e.g., josm-tested.jar or josm-latest.jar
12* Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7, or later.
15How to get Java Runtime Environment
17You need JRE Version 7, or later.
19Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS X users should visit
20and download the latest Java executable for their system.
22Linux users should visit
23There is a Linux binary installer, which you must execute from a console, or
24use the mechanism of your distribution's packaging system.
27How to launch
29Microsoft Windows users launch by double-clicking on the .jar file.
30If this does not work, open a command shell and type
31"java -jar josm-latest.jar" in the directory that holds the file. (Please
32replace josm-latest.jar with the name of your .jar file, if you aren't using
33the latest version.)
35Under Linux, open a shell, go to the file directory and type
36"java -jar josm-latest.jar" to launch. If this does not work, try to set
37your JAVA_HOME variable to the java executable location (the root location,
38not the bin).
40MacOS X users just click on the .jar file icon.
43 II. Development
46How to get the source code
48Download it directly from the subversion at
49 To use the command line subversion
50client, type
52svn co josm

130The 'patches' directory
132Some libraries that JOSM depends on, are patched for various reasons. The files in the patches directory can be used to roll back these customizations. This is useful in order to
134 * inspect the changes
135 * update to a newer version of the library but keep the modifications
137You can use 'quilt' to manage the patches. E.g. the following command applies all of them:
139 $ quilt push -a
141Of course, it is also possible to apply the patch files manually one by one.
