Downloading VA Smalltalk Version: General Information

VA Smalltalk distribution files are divided into development time components and runtime components.

Windows has three downloadable development time components:

Product Installer
The product installer installs the Client and Manager components of the VA Smalltalk product as well as a development IDE setup tool. The Client component contains the VA Smalltalk development IDE. The Manager component contains the VA Smalltalk library (source code repository) file and the EMSRV code used to access the repository file in a team environment.
There are two versions of the product installer: one for 32-bit and one for 64-bit installations.
Documentation Installer
The documentation installer installs a local copy of the VA Smalltalk documentation onto your workstation.

Client — The Client component contains the VA Smalltalk development IDE. You will need to install a client on each machine on which you wish to develop VA Smalltalk applications.

You must download and install the correct client package for your workstation operating system.

Manager — The Manager component contains the VA Smalltalk manager file (mgr80.dat) and the EMSRV code used to access the manager file in a team environment. The 'manager' is the code database used in conjunction with the workstation client IDE. One manager can concurrently support multiple clients. Therefore you will only need to install the manager one time on a suitable server machine.

You must download and install the correct manager package for your server machine's operating system. It does not have to match the client operating system. A Linux manager install, for example, can concurrently service Windows, AIX, Solaris, and Linux clients. The same is true for all of the other manager installs.

Windows has one downloadable runtime component:

  • Server Runtime

Server Runtime — This is the runtime support needed for deploying Smalltalk applications developed using VA Smalltalk. There is no formal install program for Server Runtime. You simply use unzip to unpack the runtime files and add your packaged Smalltalk application into the resulting directory structure.

You must download and unpack the correct Server Runtime package for your workstation operating system.

Notes:

  1. If you do not already have a suitable unzip program, then you can download a no-charge unzip program such as the Info-ZIP unzip program. ( http://www.info-zip.org/pub/infozip/ ). Please note that gunzip will not work with the VA *.zip files. The VA *.zip files are multi-file archives; gunzip is only designed to handle single compressed files.
  2. Please unzip client and manager zips on the same kind of machine that you intend to install them on. Do not, for example, unzip a Windows client install onto a Linux machine.
  3. Complete install instructions, such as how to set up EMSRV, can be found in the Installation Guide file ».
