Hello, friends. In this post, you will learn how to install Jameica on Ubuntu 22.04.
According to Jameica’s Flathub profile:
Jameica is an Application-Platform written in Java containing a SWT-UI. It provides different services (GUI-Toolkit, Logging, Security, Backup, Lifecycle-Management, Message-Bus) to the installed plugins. It’s a kind of runtime environment similar to OSGi.
Now what is OSGI? Well, in the words of Wikipedia: OSGI is a set of open standards that aims to define open software specifications that enable the design of compatible platforms that can provide multiple services.
It was created in March 1999 and is the logical basis of robust applications such as Eclipse or Java EE Spring. So, it is one of the most important revelations of Java.
Well, Jameica wants to put his perspective on it. So let’s go for it.
Install Jameica on Ubuntu 22.04
Fortunately, Jameica is included in the official Ubuntu 22.04 repositories, so the installation is easy.
First, open a terminal and update the entire distribution
sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade
Thereafter, you can install Jameica with the following command
sudo apt install jameica
Then, you can run it from the main menu of the distribution.
Another installation method: Using Flatpak
In case you always want to have the latest stable version of Jameica, a good option is to use Flatpak.
First, install Flatpak on Ubuntu 22.04 using the repositories for it.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:flatpak/stable sudo apt update sudo apt install flatpak
Next, add the Flathub repository, which is where the software is hosted:
flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
Thereafter, you can install Jameica with this command:
flatpak install flathub de.willuhn.Jameica
And when the whole process is finished, you will be able to run it from the main menu without any problems.
Jameica is intended to be a solid base for building large projects using Java as a programming language.
