Perform the following steps to set up and run the Calculate Age sample under Java on AIX®, Linux, and Solaris systems.
  1. Switch to the directory:
  2.    <API Installation Folder>/samples/java/form/demo/calculate_age/

  3. To view XFDL forms you must use a computer running Windows. Copy the file calculateAge.xfd to a computer running Windows.
  4. In Windows, use the Viewer to open calculateAge.xfd.
  5. Change the name and birth date if you want, then save and close the form.
  6. If you changed the values in the form, copy the saved form back to the original directory on your UNIX computer.
  7. Using your Java compiler, compile the file called calculateAge.java found in the current folder.
    • This produces a new class file called calculateAge.class.
  8. Run calculateAge.class.
    • This will create a form called output.xfd.
  9. Copy the output.xfd form to a computer running Windows.
  10. In Windows, use the Viewer to open the output.xfd form and check the number in the Age field.
