Hi,

Is it possible to get the scripts for windows (.bat)?

Ah!, Is build.sh same for every plugin?. If it is, I translate it

Thanks.

Miguel, you should not translate it to a .bat file.

One of the goals of the book is to teach some basics and familiarity with a POSIX/Unix shell, as that’s a skill that will serve you well for years to come.

Although it may be uncomfortable, good things come to you once you get out of your comfort zone.

Well, you can use windows and the supplied scripts under busybox, and once you get everything installed for him, he only needs to type the command to build.

If you really wanted to avoid the shell scripts all together, I’d suggest using an IDE such as Eclipse instead of translating these to .bat files.

Ok, Andy

Before to buy your book, I was trying to make plugins with several tutorials. It was made the plugins with Eclipse.

Can you tell me what tutorial or pattern is better in order to make plugins with Eclipse?

Regards.

I don’t cover Eclipse, because I think it’s needlessly complicated and difficult for beginners, and it gets in the way of experts.

So if you’re looking for instructions that are tailored to Eclipse, you probably don’t want my book.

However, the actual building of plugins (using Eclipse or a script or manually calling javac) is pretty trivial. That’s not the hard part, and really it doesn’t matter what you use.

The harder part is understanding Java language concepts and the elements of the Bukkit API used to build plugins. That’s what I cover in my book.

Enjoy!
