You may wish to install some tool that already has a graphical front end, or you may wish to use some other user interface than Rappture. These notes explain how to install an application that has input and output files and a graphical user interface.


  1. Create code repository.
  2. Unpack the downloaded tar file. You will find that three files are created in directories middleware and bin. Examine all files for explanatory comments.
  3. Modify the invoke script to set TOOL. TOOL should be the same as your HUB project name.
  4. Rename the script startTOOL to match the TOOL name used in the invoke script. Modify as necessary according to the req
    uirements of your application.
  5. Move the three scripts to the corresponding directories of your HUB project repository.
  6. Use the appropriate svn commands (add, update) to modify your HUB project repository
