I'm trying to build VUE from source in conjunction with a major project which would include web-based, versioned, collaboration using concept maps. The plan is to use a slightly modified version of VUE to manage the maps, Subversion to do the versioning and conflict resolution, etc. However, at this point I am unable to make any modifications to VUE s I cannot seem to build it. The source on SourceForge appears incomplete, and is out ot sync with the published executable version of VUE (version 0.9 vs. version 1.3). The SourceForge source appears to depend on a very large collection of packages which are not included and there doesn't seem to be any documentation on what projects those are, what versions are required, etc. If anybody can give advice on how to get started building VUE, I would very much appreciate it.

best regards,

Hi Mike,

I had the same problem, and it takes a bit of faffing about to get it going. Basically I:
- downloaded the source and executable distributions (VUE_src_1_3.zip and VUE_1_3.zip) from sourceforge (http://sourceforge.net/projects/tuftsvue)
- recreated the VUE.jar from the executable zip file to exclude those classes that are in the source distribution(I also had a corrupt MANIFESTS file so removed that as well when recreating it)
- created an Eclipse project and build.xml file (the build creates a separate jar file containing classes from the source distribution)

That gives me a project I can work with. Anoop has indicated that more funding will become available so it can be further developed later this year which will be good.
