Updating to VASSAL3.5.0-beta2

I am trying to update the VASL module to work with VASSAL3.5.0-beta2.

I have changed the POM file in the vasl project to reference VASSAL3.5.0-beta2. When I try to build the VASL module using maven, I get the following error message:

[ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-compiler-plugin:3.3:compile (default-compile) on project vasl: Compilation failure: Compilation failure:
[ERROR] /c:/Users/dougr_000/IdeaProjects/vasl/src/VASL/build/module/map/ASLTilingHandler.java:[53,5] constructor TilingHandler in class VASSAL.launch.TilingHandler cannot be applied to given types;
[ERROR] required: java.lang.String,java.io.File,java.awt.Dimension,int
[ERROR] found: java.lang.String,java.io.File,java.awt.Dimension,int,int
[ERROR] reason: actual and formal argument lists differ in length
[ERROR] /c:/Users/dougr_000/IdeaProjects/vasl/src/VASL/build/module/map/ASLTilingHandler.java:[139,24] cannot find symbol
[ERROR] symbol: variable pid
[ERROR] location: class VASL.build.module.map.ASLTilingHandler

VASL appears to be passing 5 params when only 4 are required (VASSAL3.4.6 which we were previously using to build VASL requires 5 params).

Thus spake drimmer:

get the following error message:

VASL appears to be passing 5 params when only 4 are required
(VASSAL3.4.6 which we were previously using to build VASL requires 5
params).

The solution is to omit the final parameter, which is no longer needed.

This is an issue which arose due to a change in 3.5.0-beta2. I was
planning to let you know about this after clearing the remaining issues
before we release 3.5.0-beta3.


J.

I did so, which produced another build error elsewhere in ASLTilingHandler (line 135), which used the deleted param “pid”

args.addAll(Arrays.asList(new String[] {
String.valueOf(Info.getJavaBinPath()),
“-classpath”,
System.getProperty(“java.class.path”),
“-Xmx” + maxheap + “M”,
“-DVASSAL.id=” + pid,
“-Duser.home=” + System.getProperty(“user.home”),
“-DVASSAL.port=” + port,
“VASSAL.tools.image.tilecache.ZipFileImageTiler”,
aname,
cdir.getAbsolutePath(),
String.valueOf(tdim.width),
String.valueOf(tdim.height)
}));

I delete this reference to “pid”. there are no others. VASL built successfully. Will have to test to see if there are any runtime errors due to this. Seems unlikely.

Thanks for the help.
