I need help editing max.java.config.txt

June 13, 2008 | 9:11 am

Hi maxmsp

I read Nick Rothwell’s post at
http://www.cycling74.com/story/2006/2/6/95056/36615 on configuring Eclipse
IDE for MXJ. It says I have to add Java IDE output directories as
max.dynamic.class.dir entries in ./Cycling ’74/java/max.java.config.txt for
auto-loading. But what is meant by output directory? I use NetBeans 6.1, but
I do some projects in Eclipse, so I’d like to know where to look in both
cases.

best regards Todd

If you’re using the default settings in Eclipse:
max.dynamic.class.dir /path/to/eclipse/workspace/project_name/bin

It’s the directory where all the .class files are created when you build the project. Usually this is called "bin" or "build" or "classes". Not sure which Netbeans uses so look for the .class files.

If you are stuck on anything else I have more detailed steps for Eclipse here:

Setup in Netbeans should be very similar.

PS – you should use the Java forum/mailing list for Java questions.
