Installing and Using ProvConvert on OSX

I have just gone back to earlier work where I am using ProvConvert to visualise a PROV graph. I have had issues with installing and using it before so have been really wary of it. Until I came across Soiland Reye’s excellent blog post on the subject.

As I am using openJDK through Homebrew on a Mac, I needed to create a symlink so that the Java wrappers know where to look:

sudo ln -sfn /usr/local/opt/openjdk/libexec/openjdk.jdk /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/openjdk.jdk

Once I did that, I could see the provconvert version and also create a PNG file.
