I downloaded the nightly zip (containing all the "pre-built" jars/dlls) and extracted it into a "jme" directory. Then, I immediately attempted to compile one of the very basic tutorials on the jME wiki (here: http://www.jmonkeyengine.com/wiki/doku.php?id=starter:hello_world). Unfortunately, I was met with immediate errors:
C:Program FilesJavadevelopjme_testHelloWorld.java:2: package com.jme.app does not exist
C:Program FilesJavadevelopjme_testHelloWorld.java:3: package com.jme.scene.shape does not exist
C:Program FilesJavadevelopjme_testHelloWorld.java:4: package com.jme.math does not exist
(which resulted in a slew of additional "cannot find symbol errors")
An ignominious start, to be sure. I then set my CLASSPATH to check in c:program filesjavajme and c:program filesjavajmelib. Still no luck on the compile.
I realize this is java 101 material, and I apologize for my ineptitude… but, can anyone out there give me an idea of what I'm doing wrong?
Many thanks in advance,
make sure each of the jme* jars and the lwjgl.jar are in your CLASSPATH, not just the directory.
