Installation Notes

Java

Oracle Java Platform 8 (JDK) must be installed. Installation packages can be downloaded from here:

Java Platform, Standard Edition: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

Note: Open-JDK cannot be used because of the lack of JavaFX support.

Java 9

Current version of CS-Studio doesn't run on the Java 9 VM. If you have installed Java 9 (possibly because you are evaluating or working with it) and Java 8, then you need to tell CS-Studio to used Java 8.

On MacOS X
  • Right-click on the ESS CS-Studio.app application and select Show Package Contents menu item;
  • Navigate into the Contents/Eclipse folder and edit the ESS CS-Studio.ini file;
  • Before --launcher.library add the following two lines:

-vm

/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_152.jdk/Contents/Home/jre/bin

where jdk1.8.0_152.jdk should be replaced by the Java 8 version you have installed.

On CentOS
  • Edit the /opt/cs-studio/ESS CS-Studio.ini file;
  • Before --launcher.library add the following two lines:

-vm

/usr/java/jdk1.8.0_144/jre/bin

where jdk1.8.0_144 should be replaced by the Java 8 version you have installed.

Memory

CS-Studio runs pretty well on machine with at least 4 GBytes. If it must be run from inside the ESS DM, at least 8 GBytes are necessary, allocating 4 for the DM.

The supported method to update CS-Studio in the DM is described here.
