Jade

Jade is an Alternative Development Environment (IDE) for GemStone/S that runs on Microsoft Windows. This screencast gives a brief demo from 2013.

Jade is built in (and inspired by) Dolphin Smalltalk from Object-Arts.

Runtime Installation

To install Jade runtime, download a 35 MB zip file with the executable and supporting libraries from here. Once you have the environment, you can get just the latest executable (about 1.5 MB) from here.

Older versions are available using the instructions here.

Jade runs pretty well under Wine and a pre-built Mac app is available here. It may be out-of-date, so you can use “Show Package Contents” and then update "drive_c/Program Files/runtime” with items obtained from here.

Development Installation

To install Jade in Dolphin 7, follow these steps:

  1. Install a Github client such as SourceTree.
  2. Clone Dolphin to Documents\Dolphin.
  3. Run Documents\Dolphin\BootPRO.cmd to build the DPRO image.
  4. Clone Jade to Documents\Dolphin\Jade.
  5. Run Documents\Dolphin\Jade\BootJade.cmd to build the JadeDev image.
  6. Finally, from the Additional Tools folder in the System Shell open the Jade Login.
