The project includes Eclipse project settings. The project has been successfully compiled with the following versions of Eclipse:
HxCAS has been successfully compiled with the following versions of Java:
HxCAS has been successfully compiled and includes native libraries for the following platforms:
- Windows 64bit
- Linux 64bit
HxCAS can be compiled in two ways from Eclipse:
- Standard source compile
- Full ANT compile
Under normal circumstances a standard compile is all that is needed. Under default circumstances Eclipse will perform a compile on the code automatically in the background. Successful compilation can be confirmed by clicking on the "run" button in Eclipse.
A full ANT compile can be performed by running the build.xml file with ANT. This is only necessary when the file: CoCo/CAL.atg has been changed or any of CoCo's generated files need to be restored. These files are:
Upon invocation ANT will run CoCo on the CAL.atg grammar file generating the abovementioned source files and move them into their correct locations before performing a full compile on all source.
The main HxCAS program can be started in Eclipse by running Server.java. Outside of Eclipse Server.bat (Windows) or Server.sh (Linux) can be run.
