ROSJava .launch files and parameters

I am wondering how to put a ROSJava node within a launch file. I also want to pass parameters to the ROSJava program, just like in C++ and Python nodes. I cannot find documentation on this problem (at least not a simple copy/paste solution). There is some code in this question

<node pkg="rosjava_bootstrap" type="" args="bumperCar org.lejos.ros.nodes.bumpercar.BumperCarControl" name="BumperCarControl" />

but this does not work for me, as I have no file named within the rosjava_bootstrap package. I installed ROSJava within the past two months, so my ROSJava version should be up-to-date.

The script hasn't been used in a long time. You'll need to use the Gradle installApp task (see documentation) and then configure your launch file to execute the generated binary/script. This will hopefully become easier in the future.

Got it, thanks! Here is a sample launch file entry for anyone wondering: <node pkg="rospkg" type="nodename" name="nodename" args="myrosjavanodeclassname" />
