problems with using cloudview

I am very new in developing EJB's and i have the following
question about cloudscape and especially cloudview:

For running cloudview I have to run the folowing statement:
java [options] [databaseName]*


But what is the name of the database? How can I create new databases with cloudscape? In my opinion cloudview is a tool for creating databases (and other things, of course), but why can't I run cloudview without any existing databses?

Thank's for quick replies...

I am using the J2SDKEE1.3 and only the tools from Sun.

It's me again...

the [database] is optional, I see

But when I try to start cloudview there is an exception:
"Exception in Thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: COM/cloudscape/tools/cview"

My classpath includes the following JAR's:

cloudscape.jar, client.jar, tools.jar, RmiJdbc.jar

What's wrong?

Thank's in advance.

Hello Christian,
"Exception in main" is due to invalid classpath
setting.Check your classpath again(spelling mistakes are quite
possible here).See if it points to tools.jar
and cloudscape.jar i,e ..
c:\bea\wlserver6.0\samples\eval\cloudscape\lib\tools.jar and
If it still gives you the same problem then close the window,
open a new one..setenv...go to the lib directory where these jar
files are present and try running cview from there itself.
this should work.
hope this helps

Thank's Manjunath

my mistake was, that I had not run the JVM with the classpath attributes

when I run cloudview like this

java -classpath %CPATH% -ms32m -mx32m

everything works quite fine

I agree. Here's the link:
