How catkin compile with rosbuild package?

I write the following code in catkin package :

#include <ros/ros.h>
#include <pr2_controllers_msgs/JointTrajectoryAction.h>
#include "actionlib/client/simple_action_client.h"
#include <stdlib.h>

using namespace cv; 
using namespace std;

When I compile, it shows:

/home/ira/code/ros_groovy/src/sam_pr2_lab_auto_scene_4/src/pr2_lab_auto_scene_4.cpp:8:56: fatal error: pr2_controllers_msgs/JointTrajectoryAction.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make[2]: *** [sam_pr2_lab_auto_scene_4/CMakeFiles/pr2_lab_auto_scene_4.dir/src/pr2_lab_auto_scene_4.cpp.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [sam_pr2_lab_auto_scene_4/CMakeFiles/pr2_lab_auto_scene_4.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2
Invoking "make" failed

I found that pr2_controllers_msgs package is based on rosbuild.

ira@ira:/opt/ros/groovy/stacks/pr2_controllers/pr2_controllers_msgs$ ls
action  bin  CMakeLists.txt  mainpage.dox  Makefile  manifest.xml  msg  msg_gen  ROS_NOBUILD  src  srv  srv_gen

How to solve it?

Thank you~

Build your package with rosbuild, too or change your depended package to catkin (which might be impossible as that seem to be a basic package).

Unfortunately, this is the only solution. catkin packages cannot depend on rosbuild packages.

So why we need catkin? Is there any simplest example that we can't do with rosbuild so that need catkin?

No, it's just another system that has other properties. You can build everything as before.
