Launching MeV with Java Webstart
MeV is capable of being launched and run from the web via Java Webstart. It is also possible to have MeV launch and automatically load a specific datafile on startup. These two features together allow us the ability to provide simple weblinks that, when clicked, will launch MeV and load a dataset of choice.
Command Line options
Print help text and exit MeV.
If this flag is present, MeV will automatically try to connect to the Gaggle boss on startup. It will start the boss if one is not already started. This option requires an internet connection.
This flag specifies the type of datafile to be loaded. Options are:
The URL of the data file to be preloaded. This must be a complete url, including the http:// or ftp:// protocol indicators. Relative urls are not supported. Local filesystem files are also not supported at this time.
The index of the first row of expression data (rather than annotation) in a TDMS-like file. If both this and the firstColumn flag are set, MeV can load TDMS-like datafiles without interaction from the user. This number is zero-indexed.
The index of the first column of expression data (rather than annotation) in a TDMS-like file. If both this and the firstRow flag are set, MeV can load TDMS-like datafiles without interaction from the user. This number is zero-indexed.
This value specifies the name of the array that the data in -fileUrl came from. The string must exactly match one of the list of currently-supported arrays, found at ftp://occams.dfci.harvard.edu/pub/bio/tgi/data/Resourcerer/pipeline/supp.... The species name is not required.
What if I can't launch MeV via WebStart?
MeV requires Java v1.6 to run (v1.5 for Mac OS). Please ensure that you have the correct version before attempting to launch with Java Webstart. You can download Java v1.6 on the Java website.
