Add instructions for using native library JARs to wiki pages. First, test this functionality on all platforms and with all IDEs (Eclipse, NetBeans, IDEA).
Please consider bug 522 comment 7 when updating the Wiki doc.
Will do -- I didn't fully understand that comment when I first saw it. I'll make sure to test and document that case. Maybe I'll also create a new wiki page that shows possible ways to deploy apps, now that the auto-JAR-loader makes it nicer :)
As you might have noticed, Neil also reported success in using the recipe of bug 533 comment 7, see:
Even though platform*all*7z file contains the plain native lib files, it should be considered
the deprecated fall back case for the die-hard :)
I also started editing the user manual static pages (git only) in this regard,
since Julien was so kind to start their update. Note: They are not supposed to replace the Wiki
but merely a static entry document, finally linking to the Wiki - of course!
Currently adding instructions to downloading and installing page: https://jogamp.org/wiki/index.php/Downloading_and_installing_JOGL
Done updating download and installation instructions. Next updated will be https://jogamp.org/wiki/index.php/Setting_up_a_JogAmp_project_in_your_favorite_IDE.
Finished updating https://jogamp.org/wiki/index.php/Setting_up_a_JogAmp_project_in_your_favorite_IDE. I describe the new "native JAR file" methodology as the preferred method, with the "native library file" methodology as a fallback method.
I also added a new way of making a separate Eclipse project for JOGL (instead of including the JARs outside of any project). This is more team-friendly, since it doesn't rely on data that's only present in the user's Eclipse configuration.
Wiki page still needs to mention the export capabilities as
discussed here <http://forum.jogamp.org/Exporting-tp4029053p4029054.html>.
Export was requested to be considered w/ comment 1
and is detailed in bug 522 comment 7 <https://jogamp.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=522#c7>.
Assigning to Xerxes, who lately answered this in forum partially.
