This page describe the distribution content and how to run each of the 3 availables modes, after briefly presenting them.
java.exeexecutable must be declared in your PATH. If not, you must modify the
run*.batscript to specify the full path to the executable.
To install IRMa you only have to unzip IRMa-<version>.zip file on your local system. Under the main directory, the following structure will ne available :
> auto : directory containing script samples for the automatic or batch mode. > db : SQL scripts to create an identification database or to migrate an existing one. If the data model has been modified, the provided script will permit data recovery from an //old// identification databases > lib : libs and dll needed by IRMa > VBscripts: Visual Basic scripts used to launch IRMa from Mascot Daemon. IRMa will be executed in automatic mode. > IRMa-<version>.jar : IRMa library specific code > *.bat : batch to run IRMa in specific mode. See following sections.
Run batch file run.bat.
A graphical interface will allow user to validate a Mascot identification result. Help on validation and others features is accessible in user guide.
To validate big Mascot identification, it is possible to increase memory used by the application: Edit
run.bat file and change the
value parameter in
-Xmx<value>m attribute. This value correspond to the amount of memory which will be allocated to IRMa, in Mo. Be careful to not specify a value equal (or upper!) to your PC memory full capacity !
Run batch file runBatch.bat.
This mode allow to execute a set of operations, in a automatic manner, on a set of Mascot identification results or on previously saved IRMa projects. Operations to be executed can be uploaded from a script file or can be edited in IRMa Batch interface.
A complete description of the use and configuration of IRMa Batch is available.
Attention runBatch.bat file is only a example of how to run IRMa in this mode.
The automatic mode allow to execute a set of operations, defined in a script file, on a specific Mascot identification result. The script file is the same as the one used in batch mode. See IRMa Batch documentation. This mode has no user interface.
