Java forever


« Posted 2003-11-12 17:57:24 »

Well I 've fallen in love with Xith3D and now I can hardly go back doing JoGL or straight OpenGL.
Now that I turned into a forum regular, I sometimes read that Yuri, David or someone else recently added a new function or fixed a malicious bug that I might have noticed few times.
Anyways I'm told that the recent "unofficial" updates get uploaded somewhere, and I also heard about term "cvs" being used.
Question is: what is CVS?
How do I set it up on my PC?
How can I obtain the most recent builds of Xith3D?
Many thanks and appreciations towards anyone clearing up my confusion.

go to http://www.wincvs.org/ to get WinCVS and then look at https://xith3d.dev.java.net/servlets/ProjectSource#wincvs  
that should be enough to get you going.

http://www.xith.org/download.php has some handy downloads for "community builds". community builds are build from CVS. Of course not every change in CVS triggers a community build, but you stay up to date (always look for the most recent build).

I like Smart CVS http://www.smartcvs.com/ .. It's pure java so I can run the same tool on Win/Linux/Mac, and I prefer the interface to WinCVS.

CVS stands for Concurrent Versions System or something like that.   The main site at http://www.cvshome.net/  has all sorts of info.

http://cvshome.org is the CVS web page.

CVS is a versioning system which basically lets you track the changes in a file (and find out who introduced bugs etc etc...).  Eg. if you commit a patch which breaks everything, it's possible to roll back your changes.

Latest community build is up: http://www.xith.org/download/builds/2003-11-13_cvs/

I'll upload another one when David commits the bug he found (see thread - Bug).

note: anyone can create a community build with "ant cbuild", any CVS users who would like to help releasing  more snapshots more often, please email me.

Will.

If you are programming in windows then I highly recommend using Eclipse.  (http://www.eclipse.org) It is an open source IDE for java.  The great thing about it is it has a built in CVS repository that works great.  You can connect to the xith3d cvs repository and download it as a project then set your links to that project.  WHen you want to update it's only a matter of a clicking on one button to get the newest code.  

I think eclipse also has linux versions but I haven't used that.  Should be the same though.

Netbeans also integrates with CVS quite nicely.

...BTW, I had problems with accessing CVS from Eclipse with Developer role credentials, and had no problems with Observer/Anonymous access. But I use Eclipse also.

P.S. I did not spend enough time to figure out why this happened.

Yes, there are Linux versions. Only thing I don't like about Eclipse is that you can't simply open a single file to edit it (without creating a project).

It runs decent on the Mac as well.

Remember Eclipse is an IDE - not a text editor.  If you want to quickly edit a file use something like jEdit  (which, with the right plugins, can make a decent IDE too)
