TOPIC: INDI for Java still alive?

INDI for Java still alive? 2 months 1 week ago #17229

Hi,

my name is Andreas and I am new to this forum.

A while ago I have built my own mount controller based on a RaspberryPi and an Arduino Due.
I have already written an ASCOM driver for it and it works fine. Now I would like to write an INDI driver for my controller.
As I am an experienced Java developer I would like to do that in Java. So I looked at the INDI for Java website and the corresponding Sourceforge repository. It looks as if there has not been much activity recently. Has this project come to halt? Does it still make sense to use it or would it be better to use the standard C/C++ approach?

I have downloaded the distribution 1.5 and tried to start the server (via the i4j-server-interactive script) but when I tried to connect to it from CdC I get the following message:

Debugger failed to attach: handshake failed - received ><getProperties< - expected >JDWP-Handshake<

Any input would be appreciated.

Best regards
Andreas

Please use the official INDI library (C++ based) to develop any new drivers.

Hi Jasem,

does your answer mean that INDI for Java is dead?
That would be a shame, because it seems perfect for a platform independent approach.

Best regards
Andreas

I can't comment on the status of INDI for Java, you have to contact its author. If you need any help in the official implementation, let me know.

I fully agree, I believe that JAVA and Python integrations into KStars are important and should be supported. If there is a bug, it should be repaired.

Hi,

ok, I was playing a bit around and it seems that the issue is related to the documentation.
I am now able to start an INDI server and load the telescope simulation driver with the following command from within the lib directory:
java -jar i4j-server-main-1.50-SNAPSHOT.jar -ji4j-driver-telescope-1.50-SNAPSHOT.jar

After that I was able to connect to the Server from within CdC and perform goto actions.
That is good news so now I can start to write my driver in Java.

Best regards
Andreas
