Hey all

Am looking to install ROS java and have been going through the external documentation here

However it is for older versions of ROS that do not use catkin. Is there anything different I need to do in order to correctly install ROSJava into my catkin workspace?

Also "rosws merge" is giving me a 404 error and using the links from "" are giving me a 406 Not acceptable error.

Any help from someone who has installed ROSJava on Groovy?

rosjava has just been catkinized in source repo, although I haven't tried it out. You may want to try it out and feedback should be appreciated.

Ok, have downloaded and have rosjava_core in "~/catkin_ws/src/rosjava_core".

Running catkin_make in "~/catkin_ws" however is giving build error "Execution failed for task ':rosjava_test:compileJava'? Can't find a solution, but appears to have been reported at least previosuly

Feedback so far: When running either "catkin_make" or "./gradlew install" rosjava is unable to find rosjava_test package. I put a report on the git stie here

Can you roscd to test_ros? Is it in your ROS_PACKAGE_PATH?

will test that tomorrow, I know I can roscd in rosjava_core quite happily. The test_ros "pakcage" is stored within a subdirectory of rosjava_core. Would assume it would be able to see it, but will check tomorrow, cause you are probably right

@HenryW I know this is a year later, but did you have any success? I'm also trying to use rosjava with Groovy and am hitting the `package test_ros does not exist` error when I try to build. edit: NVM, using wstool then building worked, strange..
