error messages will guide your path.

Hi @papa,  It looks like you've got the myrobotlab and repo projects imported.  That's a great start.  It does seem that there are some error emssages.  You can probably see the error messages in the "problems" section.  If you click on the "error" it should expand out and it will give you more detail about what the problem is.

import as an existing project..

I suspect you did not import the repo project correctly into eclipse.  you should have imported it as an existing project, not create a new one.

You can also run the other services depending on who left what in the static main method of each Service..

For example you can go to the org.myrobotlab.service.WebGui and hit F11 and a browser should start

Adding dependencies to the repo

If you need a jar, its good to discuss what we bring into MRL, but this seems like a perfectly good example of a dependency which would be helpful for the AzureTranslator.

You need to check it into the repo.

I chose the directory structure - because I think its more appropriate for what this jar does.  There will be more Azure dependencies too in the future. So it will be nice to have them grouped together.

An Ivy file is added to tell a running MRL instance what jars or other resources to get.  Its pretty simple.
