I'm a thesis student and I am trying to implement a new text prior for MeV. I am having some problems with compiling the source code, and I was hoping that someone could give me some hints.
I'm familiar with Java, but I have never compiled a large program like this. (btw I'm working in Eclipse)
So far, I have downloaded the source code, created a new Java project and loaded all the source files into the "src"-folder of my project. In the Build path I have added the JARs located in the "lib" folder of the complete MeV software.
When in the build path>order & export window, my "src"-folder is at the top of the list, the program refuses to compile giving a whole list of errors; when it is at the bottom of the list, the program compiles without a problem.
The problem is that any changes that I made are then discarded. I suppose because all methods and classes are then taken from the JAR files instead. (for testing, I only made some small changes is the text displayed in one of the dialog screens, so I did not do anything that could cause errors).
Could anyone give me some advice on this?
You will be better off checking out the source code directly from the repository.
You can use tortoiseSVN as your subversion client.
The repository for MeV 4.3.02 can be found here.
In the build_script directory you will find build.xml which you can run with Ant in Eclipse.
Hope this helps!
