[kepler-dev] Reg. ptolemy Jar files

Kepler does not use ptolemy.backtrack, so that can be excluded.
A Ptolemy developer is actively developing in ptolemy.backtrack,
so we are seeing a few errors. I'll take a look at the backtrack
The fastest way to get started with Kepler is to grab a snapshot.
The second fastest way is to install ant and then follow the
instructions in kepler/INSTALL. This builds a subset of Ptolemy
and Kepler. If you go with this way and find bugs in INSTALL,
please let us know. I think the problem you are seeing is that
either you have not installed ant from
or it is not in your path or $ANT_HOME is not set.
Your path should include $ANT_HOME/bin
The third fastest way is to set up Eclipse.
Briefly answering your questions:
ptolemy.jar is the Kepler specific ptolemy jar file. It should be
renamed ptcore.jar or ptkepler.jar or something. ptolemy.jar is
usually built by running (cd $KEPLER; ant ptolemy).
I'll take a look at why configure is crapping out with Java3D.
Hi Matt and christopher
Thanks for your feed back. I deleted the whole ptlemy files, got a fresh
copy from CVS and found that the .classpath.default exists in the PTII
directory. I used Eclipse and created the project and built it.
I had only one error in the package ptolemy.backtrack.plugin.util
This method was using java String class' replace method for replacing two
Strings whereas the replace method is only for characters.
after getting around from this, I was able to build ptolemy. The buld was
successful but unfortunately, I got all the jars in the PTII\lib directory
except for ptolemy.jar and ptolemy-doc.jar.
I even ran ptolemy from the eclipse environment and it worked fine.
am I missing anything? why doesnt the ptolemy.jar file get built even thoug
the build was successful?
Then I tried cygwin method.
I typed ./configure and again I got the same two errors regarding the
installation of java3d and quicktime. Not sure why configure did not
exclude the ptolemy.domains.gr and the othe rdirectories.
I tried to use ant ptolemy by
cd $kepler as well as $PTII but I got an error saying, command not found.
so right now, I want to use the eclipse method to get ptolemy built, so as
to get kepler built.
can you please help me out of this situation? I have a deadline by tomorrow
