I want to start to work with rosjava. I have cloned and I try to follow the tutorial

./gradlew install and ./gradlew docs works fine

./gradlew test failed for 4 from 145 test.

I am working on Ubuntu 16.

In the next step I want to implement a simple test class to listen to a "native" ros node of my roboter. Befor this I want to create some java code to get a list auf running nodes. I am working with the Netbeans IDE. I do want to create a maven project because I am not so familar with gradle and I am unclear about the current status of the Netbeans gradle support.

How to come to a pom.xml with the needed dependencies pointing to the my local rosjava_core installation?

best regards Oliver

I've never tried pointing to a local installation with Maven; for a remote one you can do:

        <name>Public Rosjava repository</name>

And then add rosjava_core as dependency:

        <version>[0.3, 0.4)</version>

I'd guess there's some equivalent to the url tag to access your local installation; perhaps you can look for that in StackOverflow. If you are not editing rosjava_core's source, just point to the official maven repo as described above. You can also point to a remote fork with your changes if you want by specifying another URL.

Hope it heps!

Thanks a lot for your quick help. Now I have a working maven project with the needed ROS dependencies to the remote repository.

Did you manage building it? Can you share your source code on how to get the running ros nodes?
