What is CodeRuler?
CodeRuler is a JavaTM-based, real-time programming game based on the Eclipse platform. It uses the Eclipse platform and a very simple API that allows users unfamiliar with Java to easily compete while they learn the Java language.

CodeRuler gives users the opportunity to pit their Java programming skills against other players in a medieval world of conquest. Each player writes a Java class that represents and controls a ruler. Each ruler (class) is placed in a simulated battle along with rulers from other players.
How does it work?
The game pits rulers against each other in a series of matches. A match consists of up to six rulers competing with each other. Each ruler starts a match with one castle in a random location on a finite two-dimensional grid of squares, with the same amount of peasants and knights as the other rulers. The task of a ruler is to give orders to its peasants, knights, and castles.

Your objective as a player in CodeRuler is to write Java code that simulates the ruler of a medieval kingdom. The new CodeRuler is now supported on Eclipse v3.0 (CodeRuler no longer works with Eclipse 2.x). Tournament results are also now listed in text, XML, and HTML. Various other bug fixes and improvements have been added.
