What are change sets for?

Postby dorasoft » Mon Jun 27, 2011 7:09 am

Hello,

I'm new to Google Code, so I wonder why Nicolas always posts change sets instead of new compiled jar file, since we can't edit the old compiled jar. How can I update these change sets into the library? I usually delete all the old AndEngine Example folder then use hg to re-down them, because the "hg update" command always return 0 file updated.

Thanks.

Btw nobody misspelled my name as "Nikolai" yet :lol:
As it looks like you have some knowledge of SVN, I try to explain it in SVN terms. A changeset is nothing different from a revision in SVN. You don't even need to compile it yourself, as you can use AndEngine as a Android Library Project!

What you are looking for is the "hg pull" command, which is similar to svn update. After doing a "hg pull", which pulls the revisions from the supplied repository, you use "hg update" to get the latest revision into your working copy (the files you actually use and which are outside of the ".hg" folder.

Sorry about the misspelling of your name, that's the biggest mistake I've ever made!

And, thank you for your explaination, it helped me a lot :) Happy coding :D !

Hi Nicolas,

I'm using AndEngine as library project, so I can update them easily. But problem come when I want to share my project. Can I make the compiled JAR file myself? Or I have to wait for you to upload it?

Hi,

Can I make the compiled JAR file myself?

I don't mean asking you how to do it, just to make sure I'm allowed to do so. Sorry but I don't know which license AndEngine is using.

By the way, according to your answer, I can freely do anything I need with AndEngine source, right?

Best Regard,
Minh Dat.

If requested you have to make the changes you make to AndEngine itself public.
