Step-by-step instructions for Java on the NXT


Some guys from the Eindhoven University of Technology have created a tutorial that provides step-by-step instructions for the installation and configuration of leJOS NXJ. leJOS NXJ is a Java platform that enables you to write Java programs for the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT and run them on the brick.
The tutorial also shows how to use the popular IDE Eclipse for that.

Hence, if you are into Object Oriented Programming when it comes to your NXT, check it out.

Thanks, Christoph and Hu!

Is the there an NXT Eclipse plugin similar to the RCX plugin that lets you download the firmware and compile and lejos programs?

Not yet, as far as I know.
But work is under way.

hey,

you only need to download the firmware once, which you can easily do with the cmd line. Compiling and downloading the program works, as described in the tutorial, directly in Eclipse.

"you only need to download the firmware once"
That was true for RCX Lejos as well ( up until the point where you need to change the batteries.)

Is that also the case for the NXT?
The firmware menu item in the eclipse plugin was a convenient for doing this.
