a collegue made me an application in .jar format.
it is a program which reads files from disks, processes some text
and writes it back to a new location. it has a GUI.
now i would like to use this code with [mxj]. how do i do that?
is there a way how i can use the .jar directly?
or is there a way how i can use the java source files directly?
i have almost no idea about java programming, and i have no idea
of learning the terminology.
(and i will not understand your replies if you start talking java to me.
pls talk in maxmsp to me.)
yet i can read and interpret code unless it is not chinese.
so i have looked into some helpfiles (mxj.gaussian.help) and it looks
like a nobrainer to setup some variables, assign them to inlets,
do a typecheck or set the type in order to send about a dozens
commands i need from a maxmsp patch into the java program
in order to set some variables, give it a read path, and trigger
execution of the process.
in best case i need to run the thing without the OSX JRE app (which is
what mxj gauss does, in opposite to a standalone jar when launched
in OSX of course does not do.)
in case poiting to the .jar or pointing to the source code are solutions
i would be grateful for a little example code.
just say the mxj wouldnt do much more than the [+ ] object.
