School report and generic server app

Right now we are working on the project report that we are supposed to hand in to our teachers the next week. We will probably write a short summary of it and publish it in English as well.

I've recieved quite a lots of requests from people that want's to use the serverapp (PenemuNXTExplorerServer) to use with their own mapping robots. Of course is all code open source so it's free for everyone to download, change and use it for free. But I've understood that our project structure, and how to get the app to compile isn't that simple. The reason is that we use something called "linked source". It's an easy way to share the same code between two projects. We can't link the projects in this case, because we need to specify that the PC code shall compile with the leJOS pc classes and the NXT code shall compile with the leJOS client classes.

I will write more about how this works soon.

I will also try to make a more generic map application that shall be really simple to customize to fit for your map data. The code is already based on "modules" and "plugins" so it shouldn't be that hard to make this.

More updates will be posted during the weekend.
