URCaps Starter Package

Please go to the Download Center, to get the latest Starter Package.

New to Java, Maven, Linux or URSim?

If you do not care which Java IDE you are using, or are not familiar with Linux, you can download this starter package.
The starter package includes a virtual Ubuntu image with:

  • URSim (UR simulator with graphical user interface PolyScope)
  • URCaps SDK (including sample URCap projects, the API and repository)

  • Eclipse Kepler Java IDE

All you need is a virtual machine software like VirtualBox or VMWare.

Instructions:

  1. Load the virtual image into your preferred virtual machine software
  2. Play the virtual machine
  3. Start Eclipse IDE.
    Open a terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) and write:
    cd eclipse/ ./eclipse
  4. Check out the loaded HelloWorld URCap project
  5. Import the MyDaemon to Eclipse.
    File > Import > Maven > Existing Maven Projects > Next > Browse
    Locate the MyDaemon sample in Home > urcap-sdk-1.0.0.7 > samples
    Click OK and Finish
  6. Build the HelloWorld URCap.
    Open a terminal and write:
    cd urcap-sdk-1.0.0.7/samples/com.ur.urcap.examples.helloworld/ mvn install
  7. Explore the IDE and URCaps SDK, and try to deploy the URCaps to the URSim.
    Instructions and further help is found in the URCaps Tutorial enclosed in the SDK.
