Project Creation Guide
There are four main tasks that need to be performed to create a public resource computing project using SLINC: configuring a new project, developing project-specific components, preparing project distribution files, and deploying the project. Many of these steps include automation to facilitate the project development process, but due to the flexibility of our project there are many configuration options. This guide provides step-by-step instructions for creating a new public resource computing project. In order to use SLINC, you must have version 1.5 or later of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE). To compile the Java example project components you will need version 1.5 or later of the Java Development Kit (JDK), and the JAVA_HOME environment variable must be set to the path to your JDK installation directory. If you do not have the correct version of Java installed, you can obtain it from Sun's Java website: http://java.sun.com.
