Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Groovy UNO Extensions
Date Fri, 06 Nov 2020 14:13:05 GMT
A Gradle implementation sounds good to me! I'm currently packaging some
libraries into the repo of my java plugin, but other developers interested
in participating in my project asked if I could implement Gradle to
simplify handling the dependencies.
And those helper methods look good! That would simplify things quite a bit.

Might I take the opportunity to ask, I'm currently in the process of
packaging JCEF (Java Chrome Embedded Framework) into my plugin. This
requires adding the path to the native libraries to the system path. I've
been successful in the build on Windows using JDK 1.8 since I'm able to use
reflection and reset the "java.library.path" at runtime. I haven't been as
successful with a Linux build, where I believe I need to set the
LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to accommodate the path to the JCEF
native libraries. While in the testing phase just trying to get it working
on Linux, I've tried manually setting the  LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment
variable on the command line before launching the "Debug install" from
Netbeans, however I'm seeing at runtime that the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable
is being overwritten, I'm guessing by the Ant script? I see three
references to LD_LIBRARY_PATH in build-uno-impl.xml but I don't think I can
change anything there? I believe that file is automatically generated by
the Netbeans plugin, in fact it says at the very top of the file:

***         EDIT ../build.xml INSTEAD         ***

I confess I have hardly any experience with Ant, until now I've depended on
the AOO Netbeans plugin taking care of that and it's been enough for my
purposes. Now I'm finding that I need to link to other native libraries and
so I probably need to edit the Ant scripts to set environment variables and
"java.library.path". Any pointers on how I should go about doing so?
