Compile

The source .zip contains:

The buildfile requires the environmental variable JAVA_HOME to point to Java SE Development Kit 8 or above. To compile, simply extract the source .zip to a temporary directory and run ant:

$ ls
build.xml  lgpl-2.1.txt  lib  src

$ ant
Buildfile: build.xml

default:
    [mkdir] Created dir: build
    [mkdir] Created dir: dist

BUILD SUCCESSFUL
Total time: 16 seconds

$ ls

The buildfile creates 4 new directories:

The buildfile also provides a run task:

$ ant run

Alternatively, Nintaco can be launched from the dist directory:

$ java -jar Nintaco.jar


Netbeans

Nintaco was developed using Java SE Development Kit 8 and Netbeans IDE 8.2. The user-interface cannot be modified without the NetBeans IDE Swing GUI Builder.

To use Nintaco from Netbeans, begin by extracting the source .zip to a temporary directory. Then, create a new Java project in Netbeans and copy src from the .zip to the new project folder.

To add the libraries, right-click on the project node and select Properties from the context menu. Then, select Libraries under Categories and press Add JAR/Folder. Finally, select all the .jar files inside of the lib directory.

When a new Java project is created, Netbeans automatically adds a default Apache Ant buildfile called build.xml. A new task needs to be added to that buildfile to copy the contents of lib/native (from the source .zip) to dist/lib/native at build time. Add the task below and adjust the fileset dir to point to the location of the extracted files.

    <target name="-post-jar">
      <copy todir="${dist.dir}/lib/native">
        <fileset dir="lib/native"/>
      </copy>
    </target>

To compile Nintaco, right-click on the project node and select Clean and Build from the context menu.

Finally, to run Nintaco, right-click on the project node and select Run.
