    Java Development Kit


    In order to write a Java application, you have to download and install the Java Development Kit (JDK). To create a plugin for Rising World, you need at least the JDK 8.


    You can download the latest JDK here: http://www.oracle.com/technetw…k8-downloads-2133151.html


    Remember to install the 64 bit version of the JDK if you are using a 64 bit operating system.



    Integrated Development Environment


    It is highly recommended to use an IDE (integrated development environment) when creating a plugin for Rising World. In contrary to a simple texteditor, it will provide some comfortable features like code completion or displaying documentation.


    Here is an overview of some popular IDE's:


    Getting started


    First of all, you have to create a new project. In NetBeans, you can create a new project by selecting File -> New Project... -> select "Java Application" and press "Next" -> provide a proper Project Name -> press "Finish"


    Once a project is created, it will be visible in the "Projects" list on the left side.


    In order to create a plugin for Rising World, you need to load the "PluginAPI" library. You'll find a pinned topic containing the latest API in this section of the forum.
