It was a painful experience, but I have confirmed that Dex 0.6d works on OSX. First, I downloaded the Dex installation.
It then notified me that I needed a 1.7 or later version of the JDK to run. I expected this.
However, when I went to download the JDK, I see that this JDK only runs on OSX Mountain Lion. I’m on Snow Leopard. So, I had to visit my MAC application store, pay $19.95 for the download and several hours later I was running Dex on my newly upgraded Mac Mini.
There are several problems worth noting. They are similar to what I have seen in Linux. Projects will get persisted with full paths. Since the source project in my case was on a Windows Machine, it was C:\something\or\other.dex
I had to manually find the equivalent file on the new machine. It was a pain in the rear, but worked afterwards.
Cobrowsing seems to work, but seems to have some minor glitches which I hope I can figure out.
Other than that, everything seems to work as advertised.
I can start dex via double clicking the Dex.jar, however, I prefer to open Dex in a terminal window so that I can see it’s informational messages scroll by.
So I edited the startDex.sh script to point to the 1.7 version of Java and even that works fine.
