Method One - jar expansion

First get the dxSpot.jar.

Copy it into a directory on your computer called dxSpot.

Expand the jar file with: jar xf dxSpot.jar
Capitalization is important. The S is a capital.

run the program: java com.dbbear.dxspot.dxSpot
or for a more powerful command line style interface:
java com.dbbear.dxspot.CommandFrame

Make sure classpath directories, etc are set correctly.
You may need to invoke java or jre with the -cp (class path) option.
For instance, if you are in the directory where you unjarred the dxSpot classes:
prompt$> java -cp . com.dbbear.dxspot.dxSpot

Method Two - no jar expansion

Run the default dxSpot with the following: java -jar dxSpot.jar

Method Two - no jar expansion with config

Note that this approach switches to -cp and full class name to run

java -cp dxSpot.jar com.dbbear.dxspot.CommandFrame sample.config

Configuration File

You can specify a configuration file like this sample.config by passing the name of the file in on the command line.
for example: java com.dbbear.dxspot.CommandFrame sample.config


Make sure to use <ENTER> key when entering Callsign & Grid in dxSpot.
A "successfully changed" message will display when you change either your Callsign or grid.
