5.1Creating a GNU Smalltalk image with Seaside loaded

Seaside support is split into a number of separately loadable packages. Here are the ones that are available in GNU Smalltalk 3.0a:

  • Seaside-Core
  • Seaside-Adapters-Swazoo
  • Seaside-Development
  • Seaside-Examples

The Seaside package is a collective package that loads the first two.

First of all, you should create a new image with the package loaded. In GNU Smalltalk, the image acts as a kind of cache and preloading the package will speed up further operation.

In the remainder of this section, $ is used as the prompt for things you type at the shell, and st> is used as the prompt for things you type for GNU Smalltalk.
