Running jEdit on QNX

I’ve tried to install and run jEdit on my QNX 6.21, but the java VM doesn’t allow me to install it.

It appears this message:
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: jedit42pre6install.jar

Stack trace:

I don’t know what to do, because the j9 virtual machine doesn’t have an option to run directly the jar files. HELP MEEEEEEEEEEEEE! :cry:

I think JEdit uses Swing, and I’m pretty sure the the Java on QNX does not support Swing, so it’s not going to work anyway.



Yep - it does use Swing. Just use Eclipse. ;)

Or Workspace, delightful text editor.

If I may be so bold as to suggest my own text editor, you can try SWediT, available as open source at It’s a cross-platform text editor written in Java using SWT instead of Swing. It is specifically maintained for QNX 6.x
