How to (re)join

I admit, I have been out of the loop for some time. How do I get the current setup? The Readme.md in Github/develop says, you require Oracles JDK10, whereto you have to give Oracle your Grandmother's Maiden Name. The currently released MapTool runs on AdoptJDK 14, as far as the release notes are con...

Re: RPTools "next" Git Repository

I am reviving this thread because I would like to hear whether we have ongoing prototype activity and whether they are worth expanding. I haven't continued on JFX and since 3 years the subject had remained stale as far as I can tell. Instead I have recently started prototyping with the same "co...

Re: Eclipse IDE Install for Maptool 1.4 for a clean Windows

I usually go import GIT from Eclipse and then attach Gradle nature from within Eclipse. No CLI inbetween. (When delivering, I check that the CLI still works.)
Even if "apply eclipse" is missing; that can be added afterwards.

Re: Eclipse IDE Install for Maptool 1.4 for a clean Windows

When you import the GIT project, eclipse asks you which wizard to use. (Was never automated to gradle, maybe autodetect.) Choose "generic java project", not "gradle". I had similar problems when introducing some colleagues to a gradle/git project. Eclipse gets overly smart that w...

Re: Eclipse IDE Install for Maptool 1.4 for a clean Windows

Looks like the main take away here is that you shouldn't attach gradle natures to the sub-projects but only to the root projects. That's what I did. It is not easy to get eclipse to drop the gradle nature and if that was wrongly applied, it may be even harder. Maybe add that to the recommendation.

Re: Eclipse IDE Install for Maptool 1.4 for a clean Windows

I do remember that the tasks do not always open by themselves, you need to open the view explicitly-but that may depend on version. But you did find that, right? So I assume your pane stays blank. One of the curious things about eclipse is that it creates the sub-projects on top-level and if you hav...

Re: Eclipse IDE Install for Maptool 1.4 for a clean Windows

What version of Eclipse are you using? I didn't have a problem with Luna and the STS plugin, but Oxygen and the built in Buildship tool does not work anything like as well. Buildship Import objects to the top level project being called "Maptool" and then a sub project being called "m...

Re: MapTool 1.4

I'll just post this here. I've been out of the loop some time. (a) There are a lot of issues listed in Github for Maptool. Is that the list "we" work on or is this collected elsewhere? (There used to be a special thread here that Azhrei and others would refer too,) (b) Working with GIT: ev...

Re: Contributing to MapTool 1.4

I suggest to upgrade the gradle version to at least 2.3 (2.14 is currently the latest 2.x version), unless there is a specific reason to stay older than that. 2.1 has some specific problems with eclipse oxygen and the buildship gradle plugin, which is the mostly used gradle plugin in eclipse.

Re: Recurring error message

I haven't found any example on how to force timsort to throw that exception in a comparable situation. It is generally a bad idea to have comparators not being consistent with equals and the zorder-comparator isn't, because tokens with the same GUID can have different z-order. I have tried a bit to ...

Re: Recurring error message

Again, I have the feeling I am missing something. The NAME_COMPARATOR is not used and I would completely remove it. In other words, I cloned the repo m, removed this static instance completely and everything built (./gradlew clean release) fine. (Maybe getting to techy here?) But that wouldn't solve...

Re: Recurring error message

This is all over the forum since months and I have been away some time, so maybe I'm missing something. But timsort, the (new) default sorting algorithm in Java, reacts allergic to comparators not compatible with equals. The above mentioned comparator is not compatible. You have three choices: (a) m...

Re: cant open .Jar files on windows 8.1

Occasionally an overzealous archiver decides to handle jar files (instead of letting java do that) as jar files are glorified zip-files. So if you install such an archiver *after* installing java, you need to fix the "default handler".
