 2    The jEditLauncher package is a set of
 3    lightweight components for running jEdit under the Windows
 4    group of operating systems. The package is designed to run
 5    on Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT (versions 4.0 and
 6    greater), Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
 7  </p><p>
 8    While jEdit does not make available a component-type interface, it does
 9    contains an &#8220;<span class="quote">EditServer</span>&#8221; that listens on a socket for
10    requests to load scripts written in the BeanShell scripting
11    language. When the server activates, it writes
12    the server port number and a pseudo-random, numeric authorization key to
13    a text file. By default, the file is named <tt class="filename">server</tt>
14    and is located in the settings directory (see
15    <a href="settings-directory.html" title="The jEdit Settings Directory">the section called &#8220;The jEdit Settings Directory&#8221;</a>).
16  </p><p>
17    The jEditLauncher component locates and reads this file,
18    opens a socket and attempts to connect to the indicated port. If
19    successful, it transmits the appropriate BeanShell script to the server.
20    If unsuccessful, it attempts to start jEdit and repeats the socket
21    transmission once it can obtain the port and key information. The
22    component will abandon the effort to connect roughly twenty seconds after
23    it launches the application.
