Hi All

First of all, I m a new member of this forum. :D and secondly, I m sure this topic has already been discussed long ago, but I couldn't get any clue out of all the threads i been reading. So..I apologize for repeating the topic.

so here it is my question:
I have Eclipse IDE, and JDK downloaded from sun,
1) what else do I need and
2) how do I configure the Eclipse in order to have the Xlet code compiled successfully. And
3) most importantly, when I create a new proj, under which category should I choose?

I tried to have WTK 252 installed also, and copied javatv.jar to the jdk\jre\lib\ext.
then I create a J2ME Midlet Suite (of course eclipse's J2ME plugin installed), and J2ME Midlet, and have external jar file imported with "javatv.jar". and the when compiling, i got "jar executable not found" error, but then the .jar file does get generated. I have no way to tell if that .jar file is really working.

I saw some posts mentioned about BDJ.jar, what's that? and is that the only file I need.

Please help to lead me in a right direction as I m just new in BD-J programming.
I have no idea how to start. And I also planning to buy some of books that most threads already suggested. In this case, all I really need to know is how to get my Eclipse to work.

thank you very much for your help

best

Kevin

Hi Zeel,

See the BD-J Wiki article at

Morning Bill !

Thanks for pointing out the wiki paper.

Bill, I went through the BDA Application form but I believe we have to pay to get access to those BD-J JavaDoc Stubs.

If we have to pay then how much would that be. And is there any way getting it without paying .. ?

Thanks
Zeel

No, you don't. Just fax the form in, and wait a day or two.

Cheers,

Bill

Hi Kevin,

I would also install Tortoise SVN found here: http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/ this will help get you access to the HD Cookbook's source code. You will still need to find a way to get access to the BD-J stubs to fully compile. There are some threads that mention ways to do this. The official way is to pay for it which is currently $4k USD from blu-raydisc.info.

You can also check out this thread on using Eclipse with the HD Cookbook: http://forums.java.net/jive/thread.jspa?threadID=37530&tstart=50 This is a great start to at least look at code.

Good luck!

Denny B.

Hey Denny,
Really appreciate that you taking your time helping me here.
Thank you soooooo much!!

following through that thread and read everything in
http://dostudio.netblender.com/wikipapers/hdcookbookwitheclipse.asp, I think my problem has been resolved. (well, maybe not completely, I still dont get what bdj.jar is, can it replace javatv.jar+xletview.jar?)

Again, this site has tons of great ideas and knowledges that I can learn from.
I love it. :D

best

Kevin

Hey Kevin,

I'm glad the wikipaper was of some use. I wish I could get you the .jar file you need to really compile the project. The BD-J stubs would replace the javatv.jar and xletview.jar.

We are going to be releasing a modified ClearBlu Engine jar file, that would let you just use that and compile just fine without the BD-J stubs. The ClearBlu engine is what we use for our product DoStudio. Is different from traditional BD-J engines because it doesn't use traditional image files and currently doesn't support multi-frame animations, we just haven't found the performance on all CE devices to compete against HDMV multi-frame animations, yet! (we are are close to having something that behaves close to HDMV, including load times) ;-)

If you are interested in this please feel free to contact me personally and I can put you on the list.

Good luck!

Denny B.
