Hi

I'm wanting to try webobjects. I understand it is now free with Tiger. I have a 2.7ghz G5 so I thought it might be on one of the installation dvds, but I can't find it on either dvd.

I installed xcode but when i do a spotlight search i can't find an app called webobjects. Is it now embedded in xcode or something ?

Thanks
David

I'm pretty sure you just have to install the developer tools which come on the Tiger disk.

Nothing in my developer folder that says "webobjects" :/

Thanks

Have you tried the Apple Developer site? Maybe it's a free download. You may have to sign in first.

Aha !!

WebObjects 5.3 Available with Xcode 2.1
The WebObjects developer tools are now included with Xcode 2.1. Key features of Web Objects 5.3 include:

Haven't found an actual app but i'm downloading an update for webobjects to see what happens

Thanks for the advice

Sign up for a free Apple dev account (if you haven't already) and sign in to the dev pages. You'll find xcode updates there.

Hmm, I hadn't heard they made WebObjects free, is that true? Too bad they kind of abandoned it and slowly let it die (a la AppleWorks), it was some great forward-thinking technology at the time.

I think it's an optional install when you install XCode. You may need to do a customised install to get it...

I have the most recent XCode installed and don't see anything obvious in my /Developer folder...

I think you are correct.
