_With Tegra Android Development Pack_
30 10 brainsandwich
31 20 brainsandwich
A package provided by Nvidia to build applications for Android. The download process requires authentication to the Nvidia Developper Network (it's free and not too spammy though)
32 20 brainsandwich
33 20 brainsandwich
* "TADP":https://developer.nvidia.com/gameworksdownload
34 20 brainsandwich
* On setup, let it download everything or at least the tools described in the previous section.
35 20 brainsandwich
36 20 brainsandwich
_SDK preparation_
37 20 brainsandwich
38 20 brainsandwich
You should launch the SDK to download other tools like emulators for each API you want to target.
39 20 brainsandwich
(Our target API is 17 so you can get any emulator above).
40 20 brainsandwich
41 20 brainsandwich
h3. Linux target

h2. Get the Scol sources
50 1 arkeon
51 20 brainsandwich
Scol uses Subversion for source control and you can use your SVN client to get the source code.
52 6 arkeon
53 1 arkeon
So first retrieve the sources from "https://svn.scolring.org/trunk/", accept the certificate and go take some coffee.
54 1 arkeon
The source directories contains most of the dependencies, and since some of them are modified they are provided in the sources.
55 7 brainsandwich
56 20 brainsandwich
Some sources like curl use Git as source control and are downloaded when building, so make sure it's installed before building the project
57 7 brainsandwich
58 20 brainsandwich
59 20 brainsandwich
60 1 arkeon
h2. Dependencies search paths
61 8 brainsandwich
62 1 arkeon
h3. Windows
63 1 arkeon
64 1 arkeon
Once you get the sources, you can execute "setWindowsSearchPaths.bat" in the dependencies directory.
65 1 arkeon
!!WARNING!! when you execute the bat file using the mouse the current directory is wrong.
66 1 arkeon
You need to start a DOS command line "cmd.exe" as administrator and go to the dependencies directory to start the bat file manually.
67 1 arkeon
 
68 1 arkeon
This will add needed environment variables and paths.
69 1 arkeon
70 1 arkeon
h3. Android
71 1 arkeon
72 20 brainsandwich
If you downloaded the TADP, the following variables are likely to be defined already (or they should look alike).
73 20 brainsandwich
If not, add these to the environment variables
74 1 arkeon
* ANDROID_HOME : path/to/sdk
75 1 arkeon
* ANDROID_SDK_HOME : path/to/sdk
76 1 arkeon
* ANDROID_SDK : path/to/sdk
77 1 arkeon
* ANDROID_NDK : path/to/ndk
78 1 arkeon
* ANT_HOME : path/to/ant
79 7 brainsandwich
* JAVA_HOME : path/to/jdk -- should be something like "C:\Progra~1\Java\<jdkfolder>"
80 1 arkeon
* CMAKE : path/to/cmake
81 7 brainsandwich
82 20 brainsandwich
Then you should add these variables into the PATH:
83 1 arkeon
84 1 arkeon
@%ANDROID_NDK%;%ANT_HOME%\bin;%ANDROID_SDK%\tools;%ANDROID_SDK%\platform-tools;%CMAKE%;%JAVA_HOME%\bin;@

h2. Build needed dependencies
90 1 arkeon
91 20 brainsandwich
h3. From Windows, for Windows
92 1 arkeon
93 32 arkeon
About everything is built with CMAKE, but some dependencies still need manual process.
94 32 arkeon
#Go in trunk/dependencies/OpenSSL and launch build-openssl.bat in command line tool
95 32 arkeon
#Command for Windows: build-openssl vc12 x86 release openssl
96 32 arkeon
97 32 arkeon
#Next grab the OpenCV sources from https://github.com/opencv/opencv
98 32 arkeon
#Run cmake-gui and select the OpenCV sources directory
99 32 arkeon
#Uncheck Tests, Docs and Java options
100 32 arkeon
#Check "WITH_OPENMP" option
101 32 arkeon
#In CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX set the scol sources directory "trunk/"dependencies/OpenCV/SDK/windows/x86"
102 32 arkeon
#Build the project in Release and Debug
103 32 arkeon
104 32 arkeon
#For FFMPEG, check the trunk/dependencies/ffmpeg/sources/README.txt file
105 32 arkeon
106 32 arkeon
# Now you can launch cmake-gui from a Visual Studio command line (it configures environment so you can build things correctly)
107 22 hector
# Specify the source folder to trunk/dependencies and the build to trunk/dependencies/build/windows/x86
108 24 hector
# Hit Configure. In the message box, select your Visual Studio version as generator, and check "Use default native compilers".
109 21 hector
110 21 hector
You will see a list of categories, under which are variables to tweak build parameters.
111 21 hector
The category SCOLDEPS contains CMake variables that enable/disable the build of individual SCOL dependencies.
112 21 hector
Some of these dependencies depend on one or several others. Since CMake needs to detect these "sub-dependencies" when configuring,
113 21 hector
we need to make several build passes, in order to build said "sub-dependencies" before the dependencies that depend on them.
114 21 hector
115 22 hector
# Leave all variables at their default values.
116 25 hector
# Keep hitting Configure until no variables are highlighted in red.
117 1 arkeon
# Hit Generate to generate a Visual Studio project.
118 22 hector
# Build the project in Visual Studio (Build->Batch Build, check debug and release for "INSTALL" configuration).
119 24 hector
# When the build is done, in CMake, check LIBPNG, OPENAL, CURL under SCOLDEPS (leave the other variables as they are).
120 1 arkeon
# Hit Configure again. When configuring is done, you will see new variables appear in red. Leave them at their default values.
121 25 hector
# Repeat steps 2 to 4.
122 25 hector
# Check OGRE, CAUDIO, LIBHARU under SCOLDEPS, hit Configure, and repeat steps 2 to 4.
123 25 hector
# Check HYDRAX and SKYX under SCOLDEPS, hit Configure, and repeat steps 2 to 4.
124 26 hector
# HYDRAX / SKYX build might fail due to header conflicts. To solve them, in Visual Studio :
125 26 hector
## In the solution explorer, open the properties of the *RenderSystem_Direct3D11* project.
126 26 hector
## In the properties window, Select *All configurations*.
127 26 hector
## Under *Configuration Properties* > *C/C++* > *General*, modify the *Other include directories* entry.
128 26 hector
## In the directories list, move the directory at the bottom all the way to the top.
129 26 hector
## Save the changes.
130 26 hector
## Repeat the same steps for the *RenderSystem_Direct3D9* project.
131 26 hector
## Re-run the build.
132 21 hector
133 21 hector
Now every required dependency should be built. The ones that we left unchecked aren't needed.

h3. From Windows, for Android
136 7 brainsandwich
137 20 brainsandwich
Do the same as for Windows target, but
138 20 brainsandwich
* Set source folder to trunk/dependencies and build folder to trunk/scol/build/android/<target abi>
139 20 brainsandwich
* Specify the generator : "NMake"
140 20 brainsandwich
* The toolchain for crosscompile : trunk/dependencies/CMake/toolchain/android.toolchain.cmake
141 20 brainsandwich
* Build dependencies with "nmake install" command from a command line.

h2. Build the Scol project
147 13 brainsandwich
148 20 brainsandwich
As for the dependencies:
149 13 brainsandwich
150 20 brainsandwich
h3. Windows target
151 3 arkeon
152 20 brainsandwich
* Set source folder to trunk/scol and build folder to trunk/scol/build/windows/x86
153 20 brainsandwich
* Configure, generate and build from Visual Studio
154 20 brainsandwich
155 20 brainsandwich
h3. Android target
156 20 brainsandwich
157 20 brainsandwich
* Set source folder to trunk/scol and build folder to trunk/scol/build/android/<target abi>
158 20 brainsandwich
* If you're using Nsight with Visual Studio (TADP), some build paramaters should be modified for each build if you want to install and test the project on a device :
159 20 brainsandwich
  - Open ScolLauncher subproject -> properties
160 20 brainsandwich
  - Configuration Properties -> General -> Configuration Type -> Make Application (ndk-build -> .apk|.so|.a)
161 20 brainsandwich
  - Configuration Properties -> Deployment -> Fast Deploy -> No
162 20 brainsandwich
  - Configuration Properties -> Ant Build -> Skip Ant Step -> No
163 20 brainsandwich
* Without TADP, after it's build, go to trunk/scol/build/android/<target abi>/App/bin, and run "ant debug install" if you wish to install the project on an emulator or your device

167 1 arkeon
h2. Source paths
168 1 arkeon
169 1 arkeon
Start by creating a directory with your new plugin name in the trunk/scol/plugins folder.

Usually we prefer to separate the sources and the includes.
173 1 arkeon
So creates a "src" and "include" directory in your plugin folder.
174 1 arkeon
175 1 arkeon
Creates the empty files you will need for your project, usually :
176 1 arkeon
- include/myplugin.h for your classes declaration
177 1 arkeon
- src/myplugin.cpp for your classes definition
178 1 arkeon
- src/scolplugin.cpp for the Scol binding functions

h2. Dependencies
181 1 arkeon
182 1 arkeon
If your project need an external SDK or dependencies, add then in the trunk/dependencies directory.
183 1 arkeon
Then create a findMydepname.cmake file in trunk\scol\CMake\Packages.
184 1 arkeon
You can copy and change an existing Find.cmake file to make yours.
185 1 arkeon
Start from a simple one like FindMyo.cmake for example.
186 1 arkeon
187 1 arkeon
h2. Cmake files
188 1 arkeon
189 1 arkeon
It's time to creates the CMAKE script for your plugin.
190 1 arkeon
191 1 arkeon
Create a "CMakeLists.txt" file in the plugin directory.
192 1 arkeon
trunk/scol/plugins/myPlugin/CMakeLists.txt
193 1 arkeon
194 1 arkeon
And edit the file with a text editor.
