You can update your Instant JChem installation. This allows you to keep up to date with the current functionality and fixes, without needing to re-install the program. Instant JChem comes with the ChemAxon Update Center pre-configured, in the Plugin Manager, and this Update Center will always contain the latest versions. However, you can configure additional Update Centers to use and you do not have to use the one provided by ChemAxon. The reasons why you might want to do this are:
Updating a database that is used by other users should be done with care. The tables will not be usable by older versions of IJC or other JChem based applications. No other users should access the database while it is being updated. Please first consult your database administrator if in any doubt.
Updating Instant JChem from an Update Center will obviously change the Instant JChem program. When you do this please bear in mind the following:
This dialog can be shown also when last logged user have not been successfully logged out. In this case, try to login as last logged user to remove deadlock, then proceed with regeneration.
Instant JChem is also runnable using Java Web Start. Click here if you want to do this.
Using Java Web Start avoids the need to use the Instant JChem installer or use the Update Center to obtain updates. With Java Web Start the updated version is detected and loaded immediately. This provides an easier approach to running Instant JChem, but is slightly less flexible. If using the Java Web Start version most of the information in this section is not relevant, but do read the previous sections of this page as these still contain useful information.
Organisations can also deploy the Java Web Start version to their own server, which can have major administrative benefits. For documentation on this click here .
