Chronicall Desktop is now available in Chronicall version 3.6 and newer for launching the Chronicall client outside of a web browser by use of the "--app" command line switch.
If, for whatever reason, it becomes necessary to launch chronicall_applet.jar manually, please use the following command as an example
java -cp chronicallApplet.jar
Launching Chronicall Outside of the Browser
Chronicall version 3.4(3) introduced the ability to launch the Chronicall web client as an independent applet outside of the Internet browser. This is a new feature that will continue to be refined and improved.
Navigate to http://chronicall_server:9080/jar/chronicallApplet.jar, replacing chronicall_server and 9080 with the address and port number you normally use to access Chronicall. AchronicallApplet.jar file will be downloaded. Run it to launch Chronicall.
Enabling Chronicall Features
To enable the various features of Chronicall, you will also need to download other files and place them all in the same folder as chronicallApplet.jar. Do this by navigating to http://chronicall_server/jar/filename.jar, replacing chronicall_server with the address you normally use to access Chronicall, including the colon and port number. Replace filename.jar with the appropriate file name listed below to enable the associated feature.
- xima1.jar (Legacy Reports)
- xima4.jar (Recording Library)
- xima8.jar (Realtime)
- r2xima1.jar (Standard Reports)
- r2xima2.jar (Custom Reports)
Note that whenever Chronicall is updated on your server, you will also need to download updated versions of these .jar files.
Launching Directly to a Realtime Canvas
It is possible to open Chronicall directly to a realtime canvas. You can even set this function to run during startup.
For the example below, we will assume that chronicallApplet.jar and xima8.jar are stored in a folder called ChronicallClient on the Windows desktop of a user named John, whose Chronicall username is JohnW and password is Airplanes.
Open a command prompt or create a shortcut and enter the following command as a single line, replacing path names and other variables as needed:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe" -jar "C:\Users\John\Desktop\ChronicallClient\chronicallApplet.jar" documentBase=http://chronicall_server:port/ username=JohnW password=Airplanes fullScreenCanvas=true
