[SOLVED] Executing OpenWebStart from the terminal in MacOS

Post by cyclops »

Hi!

I was wondering if there is anyway to run the OpenWebStart app from the terminal in the MacOS? I tried looking online and tried a bunch on my own with no luck.

Thanks so much!

When you install OWS on Mac let's say it got Installed in the OpenWebStart folder under Applications. (You can find it through the Finder).

On the OpenWebStart folder on the context menu choose Services > New Terminal at Folder.

This opens the Terminal at OpenWebStart directory.

Suppose you have downloaded a jnlp file in OpenWebStart Directory

Code: Select all


$ls

OpenWebStart javaws.app 
myapp.jnlp
... 

$open -a 'OpenWebStart javaws.app' ./myapp.jnlp

I hope this helps.
