Can someone post step by step instructions to get the rosjava pub_sub tutorial working. Working on Ubuntu, and I need it to work with Groovy.

So is there anyone who can give a tutorial with step by step instructions s.t. one can get code running.

It seems rosjava is changing a lot, you can probably use the code from to get going, until tutorials are updated.

Also look at my updated tutorial code:

Thanks. But it's still not working (the tutorial code doesn't work either).

Both links I gave should now give you projects that compile and run. If they don't for you, post the error you get. Consider asking at rosjava SIG:!forum/ros-sig-java I started an issue for the tutorials:

Failure Could not determine which tasks to execute. Task installApp not found in root project rosjava. There are the error messages.

Can you open a github issue on that, and paste the log, it will be easier to resolve than here.

I do have a question: why are you not using gradlew?

gradlew is also okay to use, and easy to add. I did not think it was important, but could add it. "gradle installApp" would be run in the tutorials project, not in any other gradle/rosjava project. run "gradle tasks" to see what tasks are configured. (Or gradlew tasks).
