A Little LeapMotion Experimenting

I received my LeapMotion a week or so ago and have not had much time to get to it so I decided to look at the SDK tonight. The SDK comes with a few examples. While I’m using it on my MacBook Pro I’ve been using Eclipse at work much more than XCode so I wanted to get it going in Eclipse as a Maven project and I had to do some investigation. I ran across http://www.restlessprogrammer.com/2013_03_01_archive.html which helped me a bit. The key things that I did follow. Install the Leap SDK jar into my maven repository: mvn org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-install-plugin:2.3.1:install-file -Dfile=~/Desktop/LeapMotion/LeapSDK/lib/LeapJava.jar -DgroupId=com.leapmotion.leap -DartifactId=leapMotion -Dversion=1.0.0 -Dpackaging=jar In Eclipse (Kepler) - create a Java project - import the Leap Sample.java file - convert the project to a Maven project with Configure->Convert to Maven project - add the Leap jar dependency to the pom.xml The pom.xml that I came up with follows:
<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
        xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd">
        <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>
        <groupId>leapmotion-test-01</groupId>
        <artifactId>leapmotion-test-01</artifactId>
        <version>0.0.1-SNAPSHOT</version>
        <dependencies>
                <dependency>
                        <groupId>com.leapmotion.leap</groupId>
                        <artifactId>leapMotion</artifactId>
                        <version>1.0.0</version>
                </dependency>
        </dependencies>
        <build>
                <sourceDirectory>src</sourceDirectory>
                <plugins>
                        <plugin>
                                <artifactId>maven-compiler-plugin</artifactId>
                                <version>3.1</version>
                                <configuration>
                                        <source>1.6</source>
                                        <target>1.6</target>
                                </configuration>
                        </plugin>
                </plugins>
        </build>
</project>
Once I did the above I was able to ‘mvn clean install’ and the jar was built.
