Installing on Mac OS

Installing and running the Excentis DOCSIS Config File Editor on Mac OS should work fine with a default java installation.

If for some reason the installer doesn't find a valid java installation or running the app fails, here's a workaround:

1. Download and install a recent JDK (JDK, not JRE!!) from oracle (e.g. http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html).  This should already enable the installer to work.

2. If the application still doesn't run, Add

  <string>JNI</string>
  <string>BundledApp</string>
  <string>WebStart</string>
  <string>Applets</string>
To the JVM capabilities defined in the Info.plist file of the /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/<jdk_path>/Contents directory

Check out http://crunchify.com/os-x-mavericks-eclipse-java-issue/ for detailed instructions

3. There can still be a problem with a dylib not found (issue with jdk1.8 library). The solution is mentioned in the comments of the same webpage:

sudo mkdir -p /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/<jdk_path>/Contents/Home/bundle/Libraries
sudo ln -s /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/<jdk_path>/Contents/Home/jre/lib/server/libjvm.dylib /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/<jdk_path>/Contents/Home/bundle/Libraries/libserver.dylib
