The Logic Server API supports:
Amzi! Prolog + Logic Server can be readily ported to any platform that supports C++, and might have already been ported for your environment. Let us know if you are interested.
Amzi! Prolog + Logic Server is distributed as a packed archive file or in an installation package. The full system will be installed in an 'amzi' directory with two subdirectories. One contains the core files, 'apls', and the other the IDE, 'ide', which is a version of Eclipse pre-setup for Prolog development. The two directories will look like:
amzi apls Set AMZI_DIR to this directory for Logic Server development bin Executables, put on your PATH to run command line utilities abin Prolog binaries docs Documentation ... Other directories ide eclipse(.exe) The IDE ... Supporting directories for the IDE
To extract the files, put the archive(s) in your root or user directory or whatever directory you want to contain the directory tree. Then follow the appropriate instructions for your operating system.
Follow the install intructions for the installation program. The installation will also attempt to modify the environment variables as follows:
Note that the environment variables are not necessary for running the IDE, but are useful when you are building applications with the Logic Server, or trying to run Amzi! from the command line.
After installing the software you will have to activate it, using either the batch 'activate' command in the apls/bin directory, or from the File menu in the IDE.
If you already have Eclipse and Java installed, then download and install just the core Amzi! download. When installed you will see a directory called apls...\eclipse_plugin. You can use the Eclipse facilities for adding a plug-in and point it to that directory. This will add the Amzi! Prolog plug-in to your current install.
In order to run the Amzi! Eclipse IDE you need to install:
Next install the Amzi! Feature into Eclipse as follows:
First, do not install a new version of Amzi! if your maintenance has expired. In the Amzi! Eclipse IDE select Help | Amzi! Version or from the command-line type 'alis' to check your software maintenance and support status.
You can un-install the old version of Amzi!, or rename your old amzi directory and install a new clean copy.
You can revert to the previous version by simply changing the value of AMZI_DIR to point to the old directory.
Under Windows, to remove Amzi!, open the Control Panel and choose Add/Remove Programs. You may have to delete the amzi directory tree if you have modified any files within it (sources, samples, configs, workspace).
