[mkgmap-dev] Running mkgmap in Eclipse

From SomeoneElse lists at mail.atownsend.org.uk on Wed Mar 23 13:26:44 GMT 2011

When I did it (November last year) I just commented out the PBF 
references because I knew I wasn't going to be using PBF format files at 
any stage (this may not work for you of course).  I vaguely recollect 
form this list that later mkgmap versions handle the lack of PBF 
libraries better if they're not available (but may be completely 
misremembering that - best to check the list archives).

I'm guessing that you've found and had a read of stuff like 
http://github.com/scrosby/OSM-binary , 
http://code.google.com/p/protobuf/ , 
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/PBF_Format aleady?

Other possible gotchas:
o I set the compiler level to 1.6 (the default may not be 1.6 if you've 
primarily used Eclipse for something else).
o I had to install ant (it wasn't part of the "general Java" eclipse 
that I'd been using).

I doubt that either of these are relevant if you've been using Eclipse 
for ages, but just in case...
