Mac OSX

Spike Server
Mac OSX is a strong platform to run the Spike business rules engine & database on if you intentend to run the system in house.

Spike Viewer
We have delayed release of the spike viewer for Mac, because Apples latest Java is missing some graphics capabilities spike uses.

Apple released Java 1.6 only in 64-bit, but surprisingly withdrew their 64-bit "carbon" SWT leaving only an incompatible 32-bit version! This left us and many others waiting for the 64-bit "cocoa" version that is not yet finalised.

Pre-release versions are available and the Spike client looks great with it, bar some minor glitches. As soon as it is officially released we will test it with Spike & release the Mac viewer.

This is expected to occur in June 2009. Contact david@economicoutlook.net if you would like to preview spike on Mac, or for further information.
