Zelix KlassMaster 8.0 is distributed in either a zip archive or tar.gz.
To expand the tar.gz archive in Unix use the
- The evaluation version is distributed as ZKMEval.zip or ZKMEval.tar.gz.
- The commercial version is distributed as ZKM.zip or ZKM.tar.gz.
- The full documentation is distributed separately as ZKMDocs.zip and ZKMDocs.tar.gz.
tar then the
The syntax is
gzip -d ZKMEval.tar.gz then
tar vxf ZKMEval.tar.
In Windows both the tar.gz and zip files can be expanded using WinZip.
When you expand the distribution archive, you should get
Note that Zelix KlassMaster requires Java 7 (ie. JDK 1.7 or better). The cleanest way to run Zelix KlassMaster is use the
- the file ZKM.jar
- the file ZKM.class
- the file readme.txt
- the file license.html
- the file install.html (this file)
- the file defaultExclude.txt
- the file defaultTrimExclude.txt
Alternatively, you can put ZKM.jar into the classpath. Note that it is not enough just to put the directory containing ZKM.jar into the classpath.
(The file ZKM.class exists as a separate file and as a file within ZKM.jar. The separate file exists purely to catch classpath errors and can be safely ignored.)
You run Zelix KlassMaster by telling Java to run the
com.zelix.ZKM class. Typically you should give the JVM more than the default amount of memory to work with. If you use the
-Xmx512m parameter then you will give the JVM 512MB of memory which should be adequate for most purposes. However, you should be sure not to give the JVM more memory than is physically available. Otherwise performance will deteriorate dramatically as the JVM starts to use virtual memory.
To execute a ZKM Script, you specify the path to the ZKM Script file as the last option on the command line. The basic usage is:
If you have

java -jar ZKM.jar [[-options] <scriptFileName>]
Once you have Zelix KlassMaster installed successfully, it is recommended that you read the Getting Started document.
