I have created a talker in in rosjava and have created a listener in C++ code. When I run the talker and the start the listener I see this on the talker screen...

I know that the talker and listener are working correctly all in rosjava but when I try to connect it with C++ node I get this error. Roscore is running on localhost:11311. What am I missing here? It also fails when I do a rostopic echo chatter.

Thanks

Looks like the message checksums do not match. What message are you trying to send?

I tried doing custom messages at first but then checked by sending a string and it did the same thing.

The message means that the Rosjava publisher is trying to publish a message to a topic on which the C++ listener already listens, but the publisher's message type doesn't match the subscriber's message type. This can have two reasons:

  1. Publisher and subscriber use different message types (e.g., one uses std_msgs/String and the other std_msgs/Int8).

  2. Both use the same message type, but were built with different versions of it.

To debug (1), you can do the following:

  • start a new roscore (!)
  • start the subscriber
  • do a rosnode info on the subscriber
  • repeat the same for the publisher (after restarting the roscore) and see whether subscription and publication match up

To debug (2), you can

  • make sure that your ROS_PACKAGE_PATH and ROS_ROOT are set up correctly
  • rebuild your message package, if you are using custom messages
  • rebuild your subscriber and your publisher (that way you know that both used the same environment variables when they were build)

I don't have any experience with the newest rosjava build system using gradle, but before the switch to gradle, it usually also helped to do the following, then rebuild the rosjava nodes:

rm -rf ~/.m2/ ~/.ros/rosjava/
(cd $(rosstack find rosjava_core) && hg clean --all)

Thanks for the tips. It turned out I was sending one type of message and wanting to receive a different one. Once I got things aligned and was sending the proper message I was good. I appreciate your help.
