Cannot run bt747_macosX_j2se.command


I am running Mac OS X 10.5.8 on a Powerbook G4 and am having trouble running the bt747_macosX_j2se.command for bt747 2.0.3. I have created the lock file and have been using 2.0.0 without any problems for some time and can continue to use it without any problems.

The error I get when trying to run 2.0.3 is:


Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: java.text.DateFormatSymbols.getInstance(Ljava/util/Locale;)Ljava/text/DateFormatSymbols;

BT747 Desktop with Holux M-241?

This doesn't work for me on my macBook Pro, with Holux M421. I execute BT747 Desktop (v1.61.3). It starts up fine, and looks great! I select "Bluetooth (for Mac)", speed 38400, and press "connect". No connection. The error message is

  • Info: trying to open /dev/cu.SLAB_USBtoUART


It looks like it doesn't try the holux port /dev/tty.HOLUX_M-241-SPPSlave-1.

Is BT747 Desktop supposed to work with the Holux? bt747_macosX.command is working for me.

Thanks for any help.

The process can be split in three big steps:

  1. Install the serial link driver
  2. Prepare to get the serial link to work (RxTx driver, only once)
  3. Install the application

In more detail, it goes like this:

  1. Usually the manufacturer did not care about MacOS, so you need to get the serial driver yourself from (CP2102 VCP drivers).

    You do not need that driver if you are using bluetooth.
