Installing Data Abstract in Fire
Fire supports Data Abstract for all three platforms, allowing you to to build clients using .NET (which can run on Windows, Mac and Linux), Cocoa and Java/Android that can connect to existing custom Data Abstract servers and Relativity Server.
Development of custom Data Abstract servers using .NET is supported in a limited fashion.
To make getting started easy, Fire comes with trial versions of both Remoting SDK (which Data Abstract is built on top of) and Data Abstract. If you do not have a full version of Remoting SDK or Data Abstract installed, the trial version will be used, and invoking IDE functionality for Remoting SDK or Data Abstract will start your 30-day trial period.
The trial binaries will be fully functional without technical limitations, but display a trial message when your apps are run. They are also not licensed for distribution. IDE functionality (such as working with .relativityClient files) will disable after the 30-day trial period is over.
Installing the full version of Data Abstract is easy. Simply download the "for Fire" version of the product from the licensed downloads page, which will have a
.fireplugin extension. Double-click to run it, and enter your Administrator password when prompted.
Once done, Fire will automatically use the non-trial binaries when rebuilding your app. The IDE tools will also automatically pick up your Data Abstract license, if you are logged into Fire with your account.
If you don't have a full license for Data Abstract yet, you can purchase one here.
