SDK build

I downloaded the SDK and tried to compile it gradle reports and error.

Any help will be appreciated, thanks.

It can be a bit tricky. I think you missed a step. You didn’t bring in the jME engine itself.

Note: Currently, the SDK has to build the engine on it’s own, because not all needed dependencies are in mavenCentral/jCenter. Thus you have to call build_engine.sh first on a Linux System, Inside your Windows-Git-Shell or you can manually checkout the jMonkeyEngine repository and then invoke gradlew.bat -PbuildJavaDoc=true install. This will add all jMonkeyEngine Libraries into your local maven “server”.

Currently, the SDK has to build the engine on it’s own, because not all needed dependencies are in mavenCentral/jCenter.

Can anyone tell me what’s missing from Maven Central?

That didn’t help. I unzipped it (for clean) and tried that and still got errors. Still the same issues. I can’t get the SDK to build. Now I didn’t download a release, I downloaded the main code, but it still doesn’t work on a windows platform.

So you unzipped (or checked out) jME source (https://github.com/jMonkeyEngine/jmonkeyengine) to D:\WorkSpace\jmonkey\sdk-master\engine?

If I recall correctly, one thing was the Javadocs, that they were not available. But that should have been fixed at some point?

It would really simplify things to have SDK as a Maven project (can’t be a Gradle project, not really supported as a NB platform project). And for it to pull jME as a basic maven dependency.

@Darkchaos has the best knowledge on this.

Thanks, that worked.

AFAIK, any issue with missing javadoc was fixed long ago. Since 3.4.0-alpha3 (March 2021), even “jme3-testdata” comes with javadoc.

Putting the jme engine into the “engine” directory moved it forward, but it still failed on compile.

So the rest doesn’t build either.

Dunno if this matters. Maybe not. But you could try checking them out instead of using just the source ZIP.

SDK uses Gradle 5.6.4. Maybe there is a compatibility issue? Try gradle wrapper to get this specific version.

So there’s a few things with building the SDK currently.
While it’s true that we don’t need our custom build of the engine anymore, it won’t be a problem anymore soon, because we will cut the ant build and encourage everyone to use gradle.
The “bring your own jars” approach is just so 90s.

Besides that, we have a sleigh of bigger problems, because I updated netbeans (to a minor version!) and out of a sudden their strange nb-javac claims we don’t implement an interface, which we do.
It also seems confused by several modules providing that interface though.

In general, there’s just a lot of netbeans specific tooling/frameworks that you can use to build your netbeans modules, but you can’t just compile them as a regular gradle project.

So I don’t know if/how you can get master to build and it’s been a bit frustrating to say the least.

Older builds should work fine, if you follow the travis.yml or github actions.
More specifically the errors hint at:
A) downloading the repositories, without a clean checkout
B) invoking install on the sdk repository, not the engine child.
Though not sure if you even need to invoke the install task at all, it should probably build the engine automatically.

Also you can probably use our netbeans update center to get the latest master builds, unless you intend on working with the SDK directly

Soon we can try with NB 13. Although, they don’t provide any LTSes anymore. So every version is basically treated as the same. Regardless of the version number.

Maven would also solve this NB getting. As we would need to download the actual NB release anymore. Just the modules from Maven repos. Maven would also then get the jME engine itself, as it is still required for the internal functionality of the SDK. Not just to provide the libs for ANT builds.

I"m sorry to bring this up again, I can’t get SDK to build. it comes up with an error. Any thoughts will help.

What Java version you are using?

I downloaded v3.3.2-stable-sdkpreview1.

What version works?

All versions work. 3.3 is the best and the latest. This https://github.com/jMonkeyEngine/sdk/releases/tag/v3.3.0-stable-sdk1.

But I’m a bit confused what you are trying to do. I thought that you want to build the SDK master? Those questions I’m trying to answer here. If you just want to use it, just download it from https://github.com/jMonkeyEngine/sdk/releases/tag/v3.3.0-stable-sdk1. And that is that, install and use. It comes with Java 11 built-in.

If you try to build it, I do suggest the master. And for that I’m trying to guess hard how you get the errors you put in this thread. And my latest question was for that. You are trying to build the SDK master, with what Java version?

I’m using java 11. I’m trying to build the SDK

OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM Temurin-11.0.13+8 (build 11.0.13+8, mixed mode)

I’ve downloaded the SDK release and using it. I was trying to build it from source because I’m looking to make some changes to a few things in the SDK for my needs but I can’t build the SDK. It keeps erroring during compile.

It builds the engine fine but when it does to build the SDK part is where it gets the errors.

I downloaded the 3.3.0-stable_sdk1 and this is what I gets when trying to build it.

You should build from the master. It fails to download Netbeans. That is because they don’t seem to mirror anymore the older releases. I think the master contains updated URL, to NB 12.6. It is pretty easy to try fix the URL, you can just get it from Netbeans pages. In case you don’t want the master or it doesn’t work.

Java 11 is fine for this if I remember correctly.
