- GbcManagement 4.0 0.48.0
- GbcReleaseTools 4.0 062.0
- GS_AllUsers_SystemUser empty 04.0
- GS_Globals empty 11.0
- GS_GemKit 4.0 000.0
With all of these packages loaded in, I need to populate my GS_Globals package with the classes in GemStone. I first connect into GemStone with my user id and open a VisualWorks browser. From the browser, I select GS_Globals and from a context menu select "GemKit Compare With GemStone" This gave me a window that allowed me to select all the methods and click on "Update Image". It seems a bit odd that it asks me to define shared variables called Nil, True and False. I say no to each one and the load finishes without any problems. That question about shared variables is mentioned in the documentation method GbcSourceManager class >> documentation_installation. It's also described in the method GbcSharedVariable >> methodsNeverToDefineInClient where the array #(#nil #true #false) is commented out and the returned answer is just #(). It might be best if we can keep the original code here. I'll investigate.
That's pretty much it. I've been able to push code back and forth to GemStone and it seems to be working reasonably well.
Next up: My first attempts with GemKit in VW7.8
