Setting up Java IDE for Vassal


I’ve recently been dabbling in custom classes.

It’s going OK thus far. Still a lot to learn, but I’m able to build some simple classes and add them to a module.

To make life easier, I’ve tried to use Netbeans 8.2. Running Java 8.

That results in some warning messages, stating Vassal wants only Java 5 files.

@uckelman suggested I use -source 5 -target 5 parameters when compiling. And that works.

However, I did want to ask you how you set up your environment? Do you have any suggestions in terms of what JDk version to use, what kind of IDE software etc.

Anything that will make my life easier is very much appreciated :slight_smile:

Disregard. Solved.
