How do I run Psyclone AIR Plug?

If you want to try the compiled examples first, you can give the following command (for cpptester):

cpptester.exe psyclone=localhost

Make sure Psyclone is running first.

To compile the examples you will need Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 (versions for Visual Studio 6 and 2005 .NET can be made available).

To start up the project in Visual Studio, double-click on the Examples.sln file. Then build the solution.

This will compile and build the three examples, which you can run manually by first starting up the Psyclone Server without a psySpec in one command window

psyclone[version]ncl.exe

and in another command windows run the Tester module

cpptester.exe

If Psyclone is running on a port other than 10000 you will have to specify this by

cpptester.exe psyclone=localhost:12000

or if Psyclone is running on another computer on the network

cpptester.exe psyclone=mikescomputer:12000

To include an external module when running Psyclone and have Psyclone help you by starting the module for you automatically you will need to create a psySpec and define a module which provides the full command line with which to start up the external module. For example, to define a module which uses an external module in the executable file mymodule.exe, you would specify the module like this

 <module name="MyModule">
        <description>This module is my first external module</description>
        <executable name="MyModuleName" consoleoutput="yes">
            ./mymodule.exe psyclone=%host%:%port% name=%name%
        </executable>
        <trigger after="100" type="Psyclone.System.Ready"/>
        <post to="WB1" type="Other.Message.Type" />
    </module>

You can even specify multiple command lines if the same psySpec is used on different computers and even different operating systems

        <executable name="MyModuleName" consoleoutput="yes">
           <sys hostname="mikescomputer">
                ./mymodule.exe psyclone=%host%:%port% name=%name%
           </sys>
           <sys hostname="brianscomputer">
                ./mymodule.exe psyclone=%host%:%port% name=%name%
           </sys>
           <sys ostype="Linux">
                ./mymodule.exe psyclone=%host%:%port% name=%name%
           </sys>
           <sys ostype="OSX" hostname="johnscomputer">
                ./mymodule.exe psyclone=%host%:%port% name=%name%
           </sys>
        </executable>
