Documentation updates

Tip: As documentation is generally updated along with functionality and other file updates between releases (i.e. after the initial and only release, so far ;-) ), you will find the updated documentation (in relation to that in the release bundle) by downloading directly the documentation files from the download section.

Running OpenFootie

Quick tip: regarding the last post, the required files for running OpenFootie successfully from the jar file after being (hopefully) created are the config.txt and the probability model file in the "data" directory. For details, please check the documentation and/or the "download files" section

Build xml

Build xml file for compiling with ant added. It includes the full package paths (not yet committed), so you may want to remove these references until the new release. An executable jar file can be created, simulating the hardcoded input match (no command-line arguments and no database required). For running it, the instructions in the documentation for running the 'hardcoded match' version apply (make sure the required data/configuration files are included in the appropriate paths). If you want to use an IDE, the IDE I use for compiling/running is Eclipse. Any comments, questions or additional instructions are welcome.
