I am working with swingx-ws for Java. The source code can be found here:|
The project is unmaintained, and the package contains a few out of date dependencies. Following advice from here:
I'd like to:
(1) open this source in Eclipse
(2) clean up the dependencies ("organize imports" per that post, which I'm hoping/assuming Eclipse can do automagically somehow)
(3) build a JAR file out of it all.
However, I cannot even seem to get past the first step (getting it open in Eclipse). I've tried "import existing projects into workspace" and "new Java project from existing Ant buildfile," but neither seem to work.
My first attempts at using the Ant Buildfile resulted in an error about a missing javac element in build.xml. So, I added the following line near the end of the <project> element:
However, now I get a new (and very vague) error, simply a pop-up stating java.lang.NullPointerException. No stack trace or anything, so I have no clue what that means in this context.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give!
