SNF Lab Members:
Team Coral has pushed out the latest release of Coral. This allows you
to fire up xReporter in your default browser from within Coral. To do
this select the "Report Engine" menu item from the left most Window
menu. Also, there is a menu item under the Equipment menu named "Browse
Manual". If you select this menu item when you have a piece of
equipment highlighted in the equipment tree, it will open the relevant
manual page (if one has been defined) in your default browser. At this
point approximately 2/3 of the pieces of equipment have links of this
type and that fraction will increase over time.
Two additional comments:
1. If you do not have a default browser set, this will not work. On the
Sunrays, you can test this out first by opening firefox, assuming that
is the default browser that most of you use on the Sunrays. If it asks
you something like "Firefox is not currently your default browser.
Would you like this to be your default browser?" You should answer in
the affirmative so that you have a default browser set to take advantage
of these new Coral features.
2. As advertised earlier, this latest version requires Java Version 6.
While most of you likely already have an appropriate Java Runtime
Environment (JRE) installed on machines on which you run Remote Coral,
if Remote Coral suddenly will not start for largely unspecified reasons,
you likely need to download and install JRE Version 6.
If you have a Windows, Linux, or Solaris platform, you can download that
by going to:
On that page there are a number of red buttons that say "Download" ...
but there will be only one button that says "Download JRE"
If you click that link, you will be able to download and install the
Java Runtime Environment onto your machine. That version will run the
existing version of Remote Coral but will also be what you need when we
release the new version of Java later this week.
Let us know if you encounter any problems.
Thank you for your continued support,
