I was following the directions over on http://androidguys.com/?p=3519
to get DroidEx working on my MacBook running Leopard.

The Mac GAE package is different than the Linux package; there is no
ddmlib.jar file; at least I couldn't find one on my hard drive.
Copying the one from my Linux box worked just fine.

Also, I didn't need to do anything to/with the CLASSPATH (which is non-
existent, BTW). I put both jar files in the same directory and ran
the command

java -cp DroidEx.jar:ddmlib.jar com.commonsware.droidex.DroidEx

and it came up fine, well, once I plugged in my Dev phone, that is.

FWIW

Glad to hear it works! Nothing like Java's WORAWBOPINNA (Write Once, Run
A Whole Bunch Of Places If Not Necessarily Anywhere)! ;-)

Hello, my process is simpler:

Prerequisite:

Download http://groups.google.com/group/cw-android/web/DroidEx.jar

Do:

1. Connect G1 to your MAC
2. Open Eclipse
3. Enter your android_sdk/tool folder, and type the following command:

$ java -cp DroidEx.jar:lib/ddmlib.jar com.commonsware.droidex.DroidEx

Done!

Really a fantastic tool. Thanks for the contribution.

Currently we are using this tool to demo our remote developers to show
the exact bugs on the physical phone.

That's an interesting use of DroidEx -- I had not considered that before.
Glad to hear it is helping!
