Hello all!

I have successfully installed AMP on Eclipse 3.5.2 and noticed some errors on my escape tutorial using the Epidemic model prepared by Miles.

While installing the extra package over Help... Install New... selecting AGF3D, Eclipse returned

Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found.
Software being installed: AMP AGF 3D (Incubation) 0.5.0.HEAD-17u47aVNT (org.eclipse.amp.agf3d.feature.group 0.5.0.HEAD-17u47aVNT)
Missing requirement: AMP AGF 3D (Incubation) 0.5.0.HEAD-17u47aVNT (org.eclipse.amp.agf3d.feature.group 0.5.0.HEAD-17u47aVNT) requires 'org.lwjgl 0.0.0' but it could not be found

Eclipse and I are not good friends and I could not find a simple way to add lwjgl such that the install is allowed be Eclipse.

Any ideas?

TIA

Jean-Paul

You need to install LWJGL separately, it's at the following update site..

http://lwjgl.org/update

What docs were you working from for install? I'd like to know so I can make it more clear for other users. The following is where this is defined:

http://www.eclipse.org/amp/installing/updates.php

I'll try to recall - it's been a few days now. But I recall

- downloading eclipse for Java 3.5.2
- adding the remote update link
http://download.eclipse.org/amp/updates/release
(it struck me that the URL points to release although it's label says milestones) from the page http://www.eclipse.org/amp/installing/updates.php
- found the epidemic article and imported the metaabm on a manually created project as per instruction
- then I paid attention to the errors on Epidemic3D.java in the generated code
- then re-checked the installer and noticed the optional parts (without paying attentio to the bottom note on LWJGL recommended)

How should I add it in Eclipse in such a way that Eclipse lets me install the optional component AGF3D from the installer? (optional question as this is more a newbie eclipse question Smile

Hey Jean-Paul,

Were you able to get the LWJGL update site? One you add that in, you can just select the LWJGL checkbox, install that, and then go back and select the AMP update site and add in the extension. Perhaps this new bit of documentation will help..

http://eclipse.org/amp/documentation/contents/Installation_G uide.html

Smile

BTW, I'm about to drop a new milestone probably today. This will be for version 0.7.0. BTW2, the interim releases are usually pretty stable too.

Also, I've been giving some thought to your use cases re: Slime Molds and I'll be returning to that soon. As I mentioned there are a lot of features that have been waiting in the wings.

Thanks for pointing out the issue with links I'll take a look. We don't have a "release" release yet.

cheers,

Miles

Totally worked. Got the LWJGL from http://lwjgl.org/update/
and installed.
Was then able to select and run the installer on the AGF3D component.

Very cool.

I guess I could now install the Ascape SDK but I'm afraid I'll waste more time in eclipsisms instead of learning the AMP DSL.

I'll get some reading done now and pull out my Epstein books.

Man, if only someone took on Sugarscape with AMP that'd be a great tutorial along with the existing textbook...

Thanks again Miles.

Oh and perhaps one last detail.

The epidemic model which comes with the SVN download I found in http://eclipse.org/amp/documentation/contents/Installation_G uide.html
specifically http://eclipse.org/amp/project-sets/escapeAMFExamples.psf

makes use of HostCell instead of Location which generates an resolution error.

Great to hear it!

I don't know if you noticed yet, but all of the Sugrascape models are available as Escape models to run within AMP. In fact if you have the example Ascape/Escape models and the Ascape manual installed, you can actually run a couple of illustrated examples from the manual. They aren't in AMF but that's definitely on the agenda.

Yes, there is a mis-match between the version that is there and the milestone. I assume you're using the milestone download?

In the latest version, I've removed the requirement that spaces have to have explicit agents, e.g. Location. But of course that's not backward compatible. I'm getting ready to post the next milestone probably on monday, but if you can't wait us the interim site at:
