The application can be used as a standalone application or as a PathVisio plug-in.
Standalone application :
- Download the executable PathVisioRPC-v1.0.jar file from here.
- Run it on your computer to start the server, you can provide a port for the server to start on, by default the server starts on port 7777.
Go to the terminal, go to the folder containing the jar file and type
Example : java -jar PathVisioRPC.jar [port]
in case you don’t want to mention the port just leave that out, type:
java -jar PathVisioRPC.jar
the server will be started on the default port.
PathVisio plugin :
- Download the PathVisioRPC-plugin.jar from here,
- Create a directory under your user directory named ~/.PathVisio/plugins, and place the jar file there.
To see if a plugin was installed succesfully, check under Help->Plugin Manager. If the plugin is listed under “Active”, it is installed correctly. If it’s not, there may be an error message under “errors” that can help you figure out what the problem is.
Once you have the plugin up and running, you’ll find an option XmlRpc server setup in the plugins menu, clicking it opens a dialog box from where you can start and stop the xmlrpc server.
