Is getdown abandoned??? Anyone with a working getdown.jar that you could send me?

I spent several hours trying to get "getdown" to work. It appears the getdown.jar provided via http://code.google.com/p/getdown/ is buggy. All I get is error message. I found a newer release with new error messages. And building getdown.jar does not work either as I am getting build errors.

Posted here: http://code.google.com/p/getdown/issues/detail?id=3

Do you have a working getdown.jar?

That's not very helpful. That doesn't solve the problem at all. But then you apparently don't know what you are talking about. I am fully aware where the other sources are but they don't work; I not able to build it from source nor am I able to find a working getdown.jar.

This isn't about posting "clever" answers; do you have anything of value to contribute?

See! Another instance of lmgtfy.com causing unnecessary aggravation. Can the world stop using it please?

@noblemaster I've just built it from source with no problems

ryanm@orphan:~/getdown$ svn checkout http://getdown.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ getdown-read-only
ryanm@orphan:~/getdown$ cd getdown-read-only/
ryanm@orphan:~/getdown/getdown-read-only$ ant dist

The build took a while the first time as it downloaded a load of maven-related stuff, but I didn't get any errors.
I've attached the resulting jar, haven't tested it though.

Thanks! I tested it, but it didn't work:

I think that's the same I got when I built the jar from sources. Although I managed to build a getdown.jar I had multiple build errors.

The com.samskivert.* package is missing when building from source. Everything including com.samskivert.* should be included in the jar. I wonder where it went? Adding the com.samskivert.* package from hand is an option, but then, there might be other things that are missing?

The point of using getdown.jar is to have a reliable distribution mechanism for applications, but the fact that I cannot even find/produce a workable getdown.jar is somewhat troubling?

Nope, if you look at the source/changes the last update was 38 hours ago (at the time of writing). Not to foget its going to be used in Three Rings upcoming game Spiral Knights.

Anyone with a working getdown.jar that you could send me?
If you look on the GetDown main page under the heading 'Where can I see it in action?', theres a list of websites with games that use GetDown, you can just look at the source code of the html page and grab the jar from there.

Sorry, am in a particularly bad mood today. Seeing as I am still in a bad mood I will continue to be a smartass and begin with this link:

http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

Despite your first two posts containing not an awful lot of useful information about a) the problem and b) what you have actually bothered to do to solve it I still pointed you in the most blindingly fecking obvious place. You've made hundreds of posts on this board yet appear to possess bugger all problem-solving or basic Java knowledge. The answer is in my post.

Wow, this is a sad display for a moderator. You have not provided any help whatsoever. Not now nor in any recent posts you made. It's not a great topic I started, agreed, but if you have nothing to say, just leave it.

Thanks to kapta, I found a working jar. It's attached.

I gave you the solution. It took me less time than it took to read your posts. Then you take the piss.

Whoopdie do. My powers as moderator of JGO are to receive regular spam about spam. I'm still in a bad mood and ungrateful lazy internet people don't cheer me up as much as they used to.

Can you please stop refering to Cas as a moderator?

It makes no sense. Whether somebody is a newbie, moderator or admin of the site, he's still a person and responds as such. You two are just having this public fight, which nobody cares about so it's no use trying to come up on top.

I've known noblemaster (kingaschi) for what seems like years and I'm so baffled as to his sudden change in apparent clueness I would have just liked to have got to the bottom of it. But it's only the internets, and honestly I really am just in a bad mood, and I have no personal ill feelings towards anyone here.

Riven, you actually post helpful comments in the forums! Also, I agree I didn't post a fully "appropriate" question in the JGO Nebwie forum, my apogies for that. I just wanted to find out if anyone had any experience with getdown. No one does, so that's fine with me.

In any case, princec is a moderator of JGO, at least the showcase section. However, it makes JGO look bad having moderators like him just putting down people asking questions. It's not just against me but against anybody in general. If he is in bad mood that's OK, but then he shouldn't represent the forums?

I'm afraid I don't represent the forums, I have no powers at all and not even sure why I'm a moderator any more.
FWIW I help people who need it when they ask. I did in fact help you but I was unnecessarily sarcastic in my reply and for some reason you never acknowledged what I was saying and even derided it. Talk about red rag to a bull.

Riven, you actually post helpful comments in the forums!
You must have confused me with somebody else. I'm at a loss how to interprete that remark though - too many options.

... However, it makes JGO look bad ...
I like to think of these forums as a place that stays under the radar, hence the usually gentle community and almost zero moderations. I don't think a bit of bickering will have any effect, as people just shrug and continue to read another thread, absorbing the goodness that we call JGO.

I'm interested to hear your experiences with getdown. Obviously they're not great so far but if it works, I'd like to learn how to use it too.

The com.samskivert.* package is missing when building from source. Everything including com.samskivert.* should be included in the jar. I wonder where it went? Adding the com.samskivert.* package from hand is an option, but then, there might be other things that are missing?

From a google code search for "package com.samskivert.util" "class StringUtil" I get a result in http://samskivert.googlecode.com, also the POM of getdown contains
1  
2  
3  
4  
5  
6  
7  
<dependency>
<groupId>com.samskivert</groupId>
<artifactId>samskivert</artifactId>
<version>1.0</version>
<scope>compile</scope>
<optional>true</optional>
</dependency>

clearly the optional flag is wrong here Wink. So the package lies in a separate project and needs to be added to the classpath. You probably should check all dependencies with scope compile, runtime or provided, put them in the classpath or just package them into the getdown.jar.
