Hi all,

The Correct Way to Build and Run JMonkeyEngine SDK

  1. Download Releases · jMonkeyEngine/sdk · GitHub (Source code)
  2. Run cmd to execute gradlew.bat with this command ‘gradlew.bat buildSdk’
  3. Comment the following lines in build.gradle
    // optlibs dep(“org.jmonkeyengine:jme3-jbullet:$jmeEngineVersion”, true, true)
    // optlibs dep(“org.jmonkeyengine:jme3-jogl:$jmeEngineVersion”, true, true)
    //optlibs dep(“org.jmonkeyengine:jme3-android:$jmeEngineVersion”, true, true)
    //optlibs dep(“org.jmonkeyengine:jme3-ios:$jmeEngineVersion”, true, true)
    //optlibs dep(“org.jmonkeyengine:jme3-android-native:$jmeEngineVersion”, true, true)
    // optlibs dep(“org.jmonkeyengine:jme3-bullet-native-android:$jmeEngineVersion”, true, true)
    //testdatalibs dep(“org.jmonkeyengine:jme3-testdata:$jmeEngineVersion”, false, false)
    //examplelibs dep(“org.jmonkeyengine:jme3-examples:$jmeEngineVersion”, false, true)
  4. After finishing build, download Netbeans, Open it with Netbeans to debug it in IDE.

No, that wouldn’t work.

  1. git clone the repository
  2. Run the
  3. Run the
  4. Run “gradlew buildSdk”
  5. Navigate into newly created “netbeans” folder
  6. Use that version of netbeans to debug.

I hope I haven’t forgotten anything. If you’re on Windows, you’ll have to get something that can run bash scripts. Git bash utility that comes with git for windows might be good enough. Or you could always execute the commands the scripts use manually.

Thanks Bro

Since I’m on vacation it’s hard to contact me, but I see griz could help you out already.
And then there is always our Readme, see here GitHub - jMonkeyEngine/sdk: The jMonkeyEngine3 SDK based on netbeans
It also contains the Issue you were having with jaulet
