Uploaded updated documentation in odt format with annotations and few minor changes. I will no longer support doc format for documentation. The project is dormant, but it will start again.
Pubsoccermanager is affected by the well known GoDaddy problem. You can access it with the IP: 184.108.40.206.
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.
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 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.
Due to maintenance, the main project site at http://www.pubsoccermanager.com/ will be unavailable for at least a few hours on 2nd November. However, from today and as a replacement, the testing environment at http://220.127.116.11:8080/pubmanager/ is available with more features, but less stable too.
As part of the developer documentation posts series, this quite long but comprehensive blog post describes the configuration files of OpenFootie:
Separate tarball with source code is added (release 0.6.0)
README, CHANGES, INSTALL and the Apache License are uploaded.
OpenFootie is on Twitter! Follow the progress between updates and provide feedback: http://twitter.com/#!/openfootie
The first OpenFootie blog post and the first post regarding developer documentation: https://sourceforge.net/apps/wordpress/openfootie/2010/10/13/testing-the-library-on-desktop/
A sample java file with hard-coded input is committed to the trunk, so that prior setting up of database is not required any more.
OpenFootie.zip file renamed to OpenFootie-0.6.zip to reflect current version number. Nothing is changed in the distribution files. Just the release number added.
Source code uploaded in SVN repository.
Some of you might have noticed in the documentation that there is also a demo "host application" for OpenFootie, named Pub SoccerManager or "pubmanager". Anyway, its web page is launched today at http://www.pubsoccermanager.com/, from which you can play matches with a real user interface and have a direct gaming experience.
