Re: VEXpro - Communicating with external software

The readme file says the following

Open the java app in eclipse or compile it. Run it with the parameter --videoServer <IP of VEXpro>. Default resolution is 160 x 120 px.
So as I have no way to compile the java I used eclipse.

The procedure is (more or less)

create a new project
import the client/watchServer directory
add the jargs.jar as an external library

I don't know what version of the eclipse IDE you used, but if you could let me know what you did - I would really appreciate. I guess it's not really necessary since you included the jar file for me to run from the windows command line, but I would still like to know.

Thank you for all the help,
I downloaded eclipse for java as linked to in the previous post. Use the top file "Eclipse for Java developers"

Could you run the file I attached before? could you connect to the VEXpro?
