Forums > Java dynamic class dir entries

June 14, 2008 | 7:03 am

Hi maxmsp

I read Nick Rothwell’s post at 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/ 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

The max.dynamic.class.dir entries need to be where the mxj object can find your .class files wherever Eclipse is configure to put them. The convention in the Max/MSP java folder is to have .class and .java files in the same directory (I think Nick prefers to keep sources and binaries separate).

If I have an eclipse workspace in my home folder:


…I’d put (on Mac OS X) /Users/martinhome/eclipseworkspace/mxjproject as a max.dynamic.class.dir entry

My class path has a folder name with a space in the middle. Max/MSP doesn’t seem to like this. Is there some syntax I can use to include this folder (like the %20 used in url names) or do I have to change it to one word?

@Aaron: This is hopefully a resolved issue by now :) Anyway, (at least if using Windows) the following entry represents a valid format:

max.dynamic.class.dir "< :>/path/containing some spaces"
