jCVS Downloads

The current release of the application can be downloaded from the following links. The executable package includes only the files necessary to run jCVS, which includes the JAR file, with supporting files and documentation. The source package includes everything in the executable package, as well as all of the jCVS source code, allowing you to build and hack your own jCVS. UNIX and Linux users will probably prefer the tar.gz packages, while Windows users will prefer the zip packages. Macintosh users will probably prefer the .tar.gz package.

In the case of Tomcat, simply copy the jcvsweb.war file to the webapps directory in the tomcat installation directory. Your URL, or course, is the server's base with the /jcvsweb/ context.

This is an Install Anywhere Now installer application for Win32 users only. While this download may be larger, this is the ultimate point and click installation option.

UNIX Installer
FTP HTTP
FTP HTTP
This is an Install Anywhere Now installer application for UNIX and Linux systems.

WARNING! Do not left-click on the download links to download the UNIX installer. Use a "Save Target As" (right click popup menu under Windows) or other similar command. Otherwise, your browser may treat the data as text. If you save that text page, the installer script will not work properly, since the installer data which is embedded in the script will have line termination translation performed on it.

The unix installer is actually a shell script. It works by padding the end of the script to a known offset and attaching the binary ZIP install archive onto the end of the installer file. The shell then dd's this into a zip file for use as the installer classes and data. Thus, you need a true binary download even though the data begins with ascii text.
