Hi all - happy to say we are having great success building and using VTK 9 in our upgraded tool. We did have a few questions related to the overall Java build process though.
First, when the jnilibs are built, they end up pointing to dylib/.so/.dll files, which in and of itself is fine, but the directory where those live have the main file with content, a symlink to that, and THEN a symlink to the symlink (at least for mac and linux). This seems… wrong? Can anything be done in your scripts to eliminate those unnecessary files? Can the jnilibs replace the other libraries entirely, so there is only one set of files to reference?
Second, are there any plans in the future of supporting pre-built versions of VTK? It would be nice to not have to compile it from scratch every release…
