Policy-based Resilience Simulator with OMNeT++/Setting up Ponder

Locating Ponder2 Directory edit

Install dependencies edit

Following dependency need to be installed before proceeding any further:

Now, type


in terminal. If there's something appearing, you can proceed- or else, follow this instruction or ant will not build Ponder.

Rebuilding Ponder2 edit

Navigate to pondet2 directory in terminal and run

ant rebuild

Now, you may get the following error:

[apt] /home/jesse/omnetpp-4.1/ponder2/src/net/ponder2/support/CheckRMI.java:2: error: unmappable character for encoding UTF8
[apt]  * Copyright  2007 Kevin Twidle, Imperial College, London, England.
[apt] 1 error

The error was caused by that character represented as "�" (which is "©" in real). To correct this, open the file

ant rebuild

Now, Ponder is ready to go.
