WebObjects + Tiger

NOTE: WebObjects 5.2.3 is NOT supported in Tiger!!

Support, shummort, who needs support? 🙂 Here are my notes:

Update: WebObjects 5.2.4 is now out, bringing Tiger support (spotted by Art Isbell on the webobjects-dev list).

  • After installing Tiger and Xcode 2.0, install WebObjects 5.2 followed by the 5.2.2 and 5.2.3 updates (available here). Update: WebObjects 5.2.4 is a combined update, there is no need to apply the 5.2.2 – 5.2.3 updates first.
  • EOModeler will not generate Java classes for you without crashing, use EOGenerator. Update: Fixed in WebObjects 5.2.4.
  • WOLips/Eclipse work fine in Tiger, but the PrivateFramework hack for WO tools integration now longer works – in fact it is dangerous. That’s OK though, it’s not really needed. See this post.
  • The CoreData tools in Xcode conflict with the /Library/Application Support/Apple/Developer Tools/Plug-ins/WOAssistant.pbplugin. Remove it if you want to play with CoreData. Update: Fixed in WebObjects 5.2.4.

  1. Thanks Simon,

    I just finished updating. All seems to be good. Eclipse/WOlips is working fine as far as I can tell…

  2. How did you get eogenerator to work? For me it produces an error :

    this class is not key value coding-compliant for the key @sortedNameArray

  3. Hmm, it looks like the WO 5.2.4 update broke EOGenerator… That’s not fair!

    I understand that Rubicode is aware of the problem and is working on a fix.

  4. Hm, I uninstalled and reinstalled the tools THREE TIMES, but still EOModeler crashed upon startup.
    Anyone else with this behaviour?

  5. Hm, I’m not sure. Perhaps I *had* the hack installed at some point in time. However, I uninstalled WO three times already, and I installed XCode 2 after the Tiger install. How could the hack still be there?
