     The IBM P3P policy editor is not open source, but it is a 100% Pure
Java application, and it should run on any platform which has a Java 1.2.2
runtime available. We have run it on AIX, Solaris, and Linux, in addition
to Windows. We haven't advertised that fact, as the installer doesn't work
completely cleanly on non-Windows platforms.
     However, if you're willing to do a small amount of manual work, you
can get it to work. You should be able to use the Blackdown Java 1.2.2
port. I'm using the IBM Linux Java 1.2.2 JDK, but we don't make that
available for download; it's only available packaged with some IBM Linux
products. Don't use a Java 1.3 JDK, as the IBM P3P editor doesn't work with
Java 1.3 yet.

     When you unpack the zipfile, you'll get a 'setup.class' file; execute

java setup

     Select an appropriate install directory (I installed it to /opt/P3P),
and proceed with the install. You'll get an error message when the install
program tries to create the uninstaller, which you can safely ignore. You
can then run the program from the installed directory, using:

java -jar p3p.jar

     This will bring the editor up, and away you go.

     To uninstall the application, simply rm -rf the install directory. Let
me know if you have any questions.
