BORG Calendar : About

BORG Calendar is a personal information manager written in Java and published under GPL. It is a combination of calendar, ToDo list, address book and task/project tracking system.

Thierry Uso has ported BORG Calendar 1.7.1 on OpenVMS. Porting means testing all the functions, writing a startup procedure, doing a french translation and creating a PCSI kit.

BORG Calendar for OpenVMS needs Java 1.5-0 or later and must be installed on an ODS5 volume. The SYS$LOGIN directory of the user starting BORG Calendar must also be on an ODS5 volume. BORG Calendar has been tested only on Itanium.

BORG Calendar : Download

ZIP archive containing the PCSI kit of BORG Calendar 1.7.1 :

Itanium: free-i64vms-borg-v0107-1-1.zip

This kit is based on the official installer BORG_1_7_1_installer.jar.

BORG Calendar : Installation

1. Extract the PCSI kit from the ZIP archive

$ UNZIP “-V” FREE-I64VMS-BORG-V0107-1-1.ZIP

2. Install BORG Calendar in your chosen directory

By default, the installation procedure installs BORG Calendar in the SYS$COMMON:[borg] directory. To install it in dev:[dir.borg], use the /DESTINATION parameter of the PRODUCT command.

$ PRODUCT INSTALL borg

or…

$ PRODUCT INSTALL borg /DESTINATION=dev:[dir]

3. Start BORG Calendar

$ @SYS$COMMON:[borg]borg

or…

$ @dev:[dir.borg]borg

4. Configure BORG Calendar

When BORG Calendar starts for the first time, it prompts for the database to use to store appointments, tasks and addresses. Choose HSQLDB and a specific location of the database (for example, a subdirectory in SYS$LOGIN). in order that several users can run BORG Calendar.

Then in the subpanel Options > Edit Preferences > Miscellaneous, disable the system tray icon and the socket port (value=-1).

5. Parameters Files

BORG Calendar creates parameters files in the SYS$LOGIN directory of the user. It is a good idea to set these files in version_limit=1

$ SET DEF SYS$LOGIN
$ SET DEF [.^.java]
$ SET DEF [.^.userPrefs.net.sf.borg]
$ PURGE/LO […]
$ SET DIR/VER=1 […]
$ SET FILE/VER=1 […]*.*
