How To Setup Java 6
First check if Java Version 6 is already installed on your computer:
Check your Java Installation
If you don't have the latest Java version, you should ask your administrator or install it yourself:
Download Java 6
How To Run a Module
- Just click on the orange Launch-button and the module will start.
- If this does not work you should check the Java Version on your computer (see above).
- Another way to start a module is to download and execute the corresponding JAR-file using the link at the bottom of each module (detailed instructions see below).
- After a module is once started, a shortcut is placed in your system, too (E.g. inside the start-menu in Windows). If you want to run the module again later, you can click that shortcut. You don't even have to be online anymore.
How To Run a Module using the JAR-file
- After you have downloaded the JAR-file, make sure the filename has the correct extension ".jar". Some browsers change the file-extension to ".zip". If this happened, you need to manually change the file-extension to ".jar".
- You can start the JAR-file with a double click.
If this does not work, you may try to start the module through the command line console.
First you need to change to the directory where the JAR-file is located.
Then you type:
java -jar mod_xxx.jar
(Replace mod_xxx.jar with the real filename!)
Fix problems with your MIDI soundbank
- If you can not hear any sound after you started the module "Random Numbers" and pressed the PLAY-button, the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) the module is running in probably doesn't have a soundbank installed. (Please check first, if your PC can produce any sound at all!)
- Download a MIDI-soundbank here.
- Put your downloaded soundbank file into the "lib/audio" folder of your JRE. You may have to create this folder yourself.
How To Implement New Modules
- All source code of Computer Science Talentscout is available here: download source code
All modules were developed with Eclipse and NetBeans.
Download Eclipse and download NetBeans.
- In Eclipse just choose "Import > Existing project into workspace" and choose the zip-file containing the sourc code.
- Here you can find introductions to the source code: Quick Start Quides.
- Here you can find the API Documentation.
