The problem is when I run it, I get the following error: "Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no jacob-1.17-M2-x64 in java.library.path"
I have no idea what that means and I have no idea how to work with Jar files, libraries, COMs, etc. I've been researching heavily over the past week trying to make this error message go away but there is little information out there to assist me. I've done some trial and error things like going under my project properties > Libraries > Processor > and added added the jar folder in there. Nothing happened. I then went under Options > Ant > and added the zip file for Jacob. No change again. So right now I'm completely lost. Based on the error message it sounds like I have to take the .dll file from the folder and copy it somewhere but I have no idea where to copy it to, or if that's even the problem. Help would be greatly appreciated as I really want to learn how to work with iTunes with Java.
JACOB (Java-COM bridge) is hosted on Sourceforge http://sourceforge.net/project/jacob-project
Information about what's new in this release can be found in docs/ReleaseNotes.html
Instructions on building this project can be found in docs/BuildingJacobFromSource.html
Detailed instructions on creating a build configuration file are in build.xml
Put the appropriate DLL for your platform into your runtime library path.
jacob for 32 bit windows is located in /x86.
There is no good usage guide at this time.
I think you might need both the zip and the src.zip (src = source) files, but at this point, I am lost too.
JACOB is built on windows machines using ANT, most commonly from inside of Eclipse. The main steps for getting a working Jacob build are:
1 Check out the source code or unpack the source zip file from sourceforge
2 Install the Development Environment
3 Configure the build by creating a compilation_tools.properties file.
4 Run Eclipse and load the project into eclipse
5 Open the build.xml file in Eclipse and run the default ant target
Anybody else got any ideas?
Also, while I really am curious to find a solution to this problem of the library path, but I'm sure that wouldn't be the only way to solve the overall issue I'm having. If anyone knows of a way to import a folder into iTunes using Java, I would be one very happy camper As that's the main thing I would love to get done.
