i try to advertise my service, but i am not able to compile.

Here is my msg file:

string sourceRobot
float64 x
float64 y

My srv file:

map_merger/pointFromRobot inputPoint
map_merger/pointFromRobot outputPoint

And here are the cpp parts according to the Service:

in map_merger.h:

 map_merger::pointFromRobot transformPoint(map_merger::transformPoint::Request req);

in map_merger.cpp:

 map_merger::pointFromRobot transformPoint(map_merger::transformPoint::Request req)
     map_merger::pointFromRobot returnValue;
    return returnValue;

in the Constructor the advertiseService is called (that does not work), here is the code:

 nodeHandle = new ros::NodeHandle("~");
    ros::ServiceServer service = nodeHandle->advertiseService("transformPoint",&MapMerger::transformPoint,this);

If you have compile errors, you should always post them along with your question.

It appears you are not using the correct signature for the callback function, as described in Writing a Simple Service and Client (C++)), it should have two arguments (one for the request, one for the response).

i will post the error in future questions. I had to change the method to: bool transformPoint(map_merger::transformPoint::Request &req, map_merger::transformPoint::Response &res);
