What every Java engineer should know about microservices: Reactive Microservices Architecture.  Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

Quite similar with a traditional Linux robot game, with a simple teleport, implements by Eclipse plug-in. You can create your own robots by extending ‘robot’ extension point.

Robot extension point:

 

Create your own robot, you need to define:routing class, image, power(1 to 5, the player is zero, so it can be defeated by any other robots), name, count(total on game start), speed(steps in once route).

Robot1.java(sample)

import java.util.Random;
 
import org.eclipse.swt.graphics.Point;
 
import com.osgix.game.robot.game.RobotGame;
import com.osgix.game.robot.robot.AbstractRobot;
 
public class Robot1 extends AbstractRobot {
 
    @Override
    public boolean move() {
        moveToPlayer();
        return true;
    }
 
    @Override
    public void newGame(RobotGame game) {
        Random generator = new Random();
        Point p = new Point(0, 0);
        do {
            p.x = generator.nextInt(game.getMapX());
            p.y = generator.nextInt(game.getMapY());
        } while (game.hasRobots(p));
        setPosition(p);
    }
}
