Thanks to Christian Langanke <cla@oerag.de>, i managed to solve my previous difficulties.

Apparently to use Jigsaw under OS/2 it is necessary to specify the -Djava.compiler= flag to the java interpreter (i 
have provided a REXX script below to show how i did it). I haven't researched this flag yet, but it does seem to work 

The second part of my problem was to get it working locally so i didn't need to pay ISP charges while i was developing 
my pages. The ICAT documentation provided the hint that helped solve that one - "ifconfig lo up". I don't 
know the precise details of ifconfig, but again it works ;).

The authors do point out both of the following notes, however it took me a while to notice them, so i'll restate them 

Note 1: Do read the documentation (if you run the script below, they will be served on In 
particular the administration passwords are hidden in there ;).
Note 2: You can't browse the administrator's address - you need to use the administration client (e.g. started in the 
script below)

Below is the REXX script that i use to start up the server and administration client. If you have any comments at all, 
i would appreciate them. This is my first foray into this domain, so i am far from expert. I will also try to answer 
any questions along these lines (the fact that i am not expert is of course relevant here as well ;).

/* Local.cmd
