I'm unable to reconstruct the nxt_lejos Getting Started Tutorial as "roslaunch proxy.launch" yields an error about missing rosjava_bootstrap

user@ubuntu:~/ros_workspace/lejos/learning_nxt_lejos$ roslaunch proxy.launch
... logging to /home/user/.ros/log/e479cc26-c074-11e1-8379-000c29dc495d/roslaunch-ubuntu-3394.log

ERROR: cannot launch node of type [rosjava_bootstrap/]: Cannot locate node of type [] in package [rosjava_bootstrap]

The file is missing <node pkg="rosjava_bootstrap" type="" args="nxt_lejos_proxy org.lejos.ros.nodes.ROSProxy" name="nxt_lejos_proxy" output="screen">

which results from trying to perform from rosjava_bootstrap as defined in proxy.launch:

<node pkg="rosjava_bootstrap" 
    args="nxt_lejos_proxy org.lejos.ros.nodes.ROSProxy" 

As current rosjava_bootstrap lacks such a file, this obviously fails.

How is one supposed to reconstruct the Getting Started Tutorial with current rosjava_core?

Best regards, Andreas
