[kepler-dev] Kepler Training Videos/Exercise 1 Problem

    As always, thank you! You've been incredibly helpful time and  
again. Your solution will work (in the short term at least). I looked  
the fool today when I gave a presentation on Kepler and I didn't have  
any actors of my own to show.

    So, this will help me. However, I'm slightly concerned about the  
future. I am "imagining" the video as I work through the material on  
my own. Does this mean that anyone who ever wants to develop actors  
(even the HelloWorld actor) has to be approved as a developer before  
they can continue? That can add an extra level of complexity for those  
who are still evaluating Kepler and discovering how easy (or  
difficult) it is for them to code their own actors.

    Regardless, Kirsten and I discussed the Getting Started Manual  
today. With that, and the introductory flash video, I'm going to be  
quite busy and won't get to that future concern for some time.

Warmest Regards,

Glen Jarvis

Hi Glen,
    I looked into you problem and discovered that several of the ant  
'target' scripts need to be modified to compile using the beta3  
release or the nightly build zipped version. (A primary problem is  
that the $KEPLER/build/kepler.jar file is not automatically added to  
the classpath and thus the compiler will not find ptolemy classes.)
    I suggest that you get Kepler CVS read permissions if you do not  
have them and work with CVS releases rather than the beta3 release.  
This will put you on the same status as developers and make it easier  
for developers to help if problems occur.
