Hello there. I’m testing the waters with jME; it’s very exciting stuff. I’m setting up my first test projects, using the wiki guide to set up Eclipse. Everything went swimmingly until almost the very end, but now I’m having an issue that I can’t seem to understand.
So, User Libraries. This section went great:
Step 10: Now right-click the jME project → Properties → Java Build Path → Libraries tab → Add Library
creating a user library is not really needed.
When you check out jme from svn, your eclipse project is set up already with most of the jars.
The only jar you need to add manually is the swt.jar because there are different jars for different OS.
Then add the native library path and your set.
See here for a video tot which shows how to set up jme in eclipse:
the crux of the matter here is that you used the wiki for setting jme 1.0. the video guide is for jme 2.0
GorillaNinja, i strongly suggest you use jme 2.0 from the start. just roll with the video tutorial Core-Dump suggests.
I agree in full, especially since jME 1.0 is days away from being 'archived' and a stable release of 2.0 is declared…
Okay, sounds like a plan. It seems my Eclipse doesn't have SVN built-in, so I'll work on that first thing. Then I'll continue to follow the video and see if I can get everything working.
Questions: Is there a way to tell at a glance in Eclipse which version of the code I'm looking at? Either in the code or at run-time? Also… is the wiki/User Guide all written to 1.0 like the install guide, or will I be able to use it as a reference for learning 2.0?
Thanks for the help!

This is a good question, perhaps we (the 'devs') should change the Ant script to have the project name be "jME 2.0"...

Unfortunately, most of the Wiki still refers to jME 1.0 so you will have to use it as 'references'; if you feel like you would want to help out please feel free to update the Wiki to 2.0 where ever you can :).
