In previous posting i wrote about ejip. I use eclipse 3.2 to use jade platform but i didn’t use ejip in my programming ūüėÄ

I can create my first agent using jade. I have install eclipse 3.2 and jdk 1.4. and prepare jade before running it. This step by step using jade in eclipse: (more…)

To run Jade easily, we can use Ejip, plug-in to integrate Jade with eclipse. Minimum requirement for ejip are JRE 1.4.2 and eclipse 3.2 . How to install and download ejip can be found at Mars Software website.

This step should be done by administrator. Before running Jade to our machine, we should download and prepare it. I will use windows OS to running Jade in eclipse environment. The guidance for installation can be found here, by choosing “JADE Administrator’s Guide” part. Requirement sofware to run Jade is JDK 1.4.

Here are steps by step that i done to prepare Jade in my machine:

  1.  Download JADE 3.5 version (jadeAll.zip) from http://jade.tilab.com/
  2. Uncompress that file using “jar xvf” command. I use linux to do it by write command : jar xvf JADE-all-3\[1].5.zip . From this step¬†we get: JADE-src-3.5.zip, JADE-examples-3.5.zip, JADE-doc-3.5.zip and JADE-bin-3.5.zip. jar xvf command is command for uncompress jar file. If we use common¬†unzip, we will find error or uncompleted process. In windows OS we can use command prompt.
  3. Uncompress file we get from step 2 using the same command:
    1. jar xvf JADE-src-3.5.zip
    2. jar xvf JADE-examples-3.5.zip
    3. jar xvf JADE-doc-3.5.zip
    4. jar xvf JADE-bin-3.5.zip
  4. From step 3 we will get folder jade\ and all the file that consists of binary file for jade, source code of example, source code of jade and documentation file.
  5. If we put jade at c:\jade, we must set classpath by write this at command line :  set CLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH%;.;c:\jade\lib\jade.jar;c:\jade\lib\jadeTools.jar; c:\jade\lib\Base64.jar;  c:\jade\lib\http.jar;c:\jade\lib\iiop.jar

After this step we can run Jade. If we want to run jade under eclipse environment we can use the documentation wrote by jih. 

After learn how to deal with jena, i start to learn JADE. I go to this website http://jade.tilab.com/doc/index.html and read each documentation inside to understand what is Jade and how to deal with.
