Hello all, I am experienced programmer looking for a starter project that will compile under the Android Studio 1.1.0 and Indigo installation of ROS.

Honestly I have over twenty years experience programming in all levels of programming languages, and very familiar with all versions of UNIX back to BSD 4.3. I've been through the tutorials and for several months have not successfully even compiled a sample program in the tutorials most of which are geared towards Hydro and not Indigo.

I'm getting many gradle issues, not even having anything to do with programming.

Can some recommend to me a link pointing to a project that will compile with Indigo and Android Studio 1.1.0, without any tweaking, and that can be sent to my Android device and executed?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Can't help you with the starter project, but perhaps you can get in touch with other users more directly through the ros-sig-java mailing list. Afaik, a lot of issues with Indigo were fixed in the latest release (which hasn't yet reached the public repositories):

A quick heads up for the official rosjava/android release on indigo. This has been the result of some on and off work over the last couple of weeks - a big thank you to input from a few lads who were busy on the github rosjava issue trackers. Also to Damon for the android improvements since hydro.

Starting points:

Shiny new things (details in the Migration Guide):

  • Gradle version -> 2.2
  • More (and easier) methods of generating message artifacts.
  • Build rosjava debs on the build farm without special workarounds
  • Android Studio 1.x support
  • Android interactions/pairing now stable with tutorials.
  • Lots of other minor fixes and updates.

Enjoy! Daniel.
