so ... starting my first blog
I was wondering what might be interesting for people so I realized that many colleagues are writing about their experience and knowledge. I think that's a good idea so I start with my experience setting up wonderland.
If you wonder what wonderland is you should visit the website of this open source project.
So what did I do.
- Installed Solaris Express Developer Edition
this was very straight forward on my Ultra 40
and I was ready within 45 minutes
- I went to http://www.blastwave.org
because I like the way to install software with pkg-get
downloaded and installed pkg-get (straight forward again)
- Then installed the cvs with pkg-get -i cvs-1.11.22
I also installed the JDK 6 (just in case and because it was mentioned on the project page)
- Then went to the project website of wonderland and followed the instructions
cvs co lg3d-wonderland
- After that I was nearly done
I just opened another terminal to start with the server
the starting ends with
[java] INFO: Wonderland: application is ready
- opend again another terminal to start the client software
and logged in with an user account which is on the system
So everything worked fine so far. The wonderland world already had MPK20 as world attached so I even didn't have to create a world from scratch.
The next steps now will be
- enabling the voice bridge and
- sharing applications within the wonderland
- and perhapse customizing the world
So why did I install the software? - Well a lot of people are talking about virtual worlds but this project has also this interesting component of the voice bridge which gives the possibility to have more ways in communicating during confcalls or videocalls than any other product I'm aware.
So I'm really excited in now getting the voice bridge enabled.
