Subject: Help with java problem: ant vs eclipse
I'm trying to update JMol to the version 13 series, but this requires
the introducion of a couple other packages in Fedora. However, I've
into problems with jspecview  - for some reason I can't get it to
build a proper jar file, some classes always end up missing.
This is a rather odd problem, as if I build the thing in Eclipse as
upstream does (still using ant!), I get a working jar file.
It is possible that upstream doesn't pay attention and have done their builds with
hardcoded stuff for eclipse setup.
You can try putting the sources in one folder and run
eclipse -application org.eclipse.ant.core.antRunner -data %YOUR_FOLDER% -buildfile

I hope someone can help me in getting the package to build. The
instructions sent by upstream for building the package in Eclipse are
below (you need to install eclipse-subclipse).
First, you need to work within Eclipse. All Jmol/JSpecView
is done in Eclipse. There is information on how to set that up in the
Jmol wiki: http://wiki.jmol.org/index.php/Eclipse
I suppose it is
possible to do all this without Eclipse, but neither Robert nor I can
help you if you do not use Eclipse.
Once you have Eclipse working:
1) Check out https://svn.code.sf.net/p/jspecview/svn/dev2/JSpecView
into a workspace as project JSpecView.
2) Check out
into the same workspace as project JSpecViewLib.
All building is done through ANT tasks. I believe you must first
JSpecViewLib, then JSpecView.
