Hello all,

I'm creating and Android app to remotely operate the turtlebot_panorama app through service calls. I don't know how to make gradle to compile my .srv file.

As a dirty workaround, I copied the .srv file on


and let gradle compile it together with the whole rosjava_core. This works fine but...

Thank you a lot

You simply need to rebuild the rosjava_messages package. For Eclipse, it depends highly on your setup. You may need to regenerate your project as well.

Hi, I've succesfully created a service (using your suggestion). I'm trying to use this package on the rosjava_tutorial_services package, but the compiler says that the custom_msg package doesn't exist. Do you have some suggestion on how to build the project in a correct way?

Please look at the topic #54933.(I'm afraid that my karmas are too few to show a link.)

It can be just as vaild for the custom services. You should rebuild rosjava,especially, rosjava_message.

Ups... I'm gonna be a bit ridiculous, but.... what do you mean with topic #54933?

Apart from this, I tried in a similar way that with messages and it works.Thanks! Only black point is the ugly way I integrated the generated classes on eclipse (adding the rosjava_core's messages directory to the sources). Did you have a better way?
