Description Jesse Glick 2011-03-25 20:33:32 UTC
To reproduce, open in the editor. It is incorrectly marked as erroneous (F9 works to compile).

The AP calls processingEnv.getFiler().getResource(StandardLocation.CLASS_PATH, "", "path/to/icon.gif") but this throws an exception even though the referenced icon in fact exists. Inspecting the sources I see two problems:

1. CachingFileManager.getFileForInput calls findFile, which can only return a JavaFileObject, whereas I would expect to get some other kind of FileObject here since this is not a Java class.

2. CachingArchive.getFiles is given a folderName with a leading slash ("/path/to") whereas folders uses non-leading-slash keys ("path/to").

#1 might be a problem for various reasons, but #2 is easily corrected and seems to fix the symptom:

No sure why #1 should be a problem - Kind.OTHER shall be used for files that are not a Java source code, class file or HTML file.

I would personally prefer to solve #2 in the FileObjects.getRelativePath(String, String), where the package name and relative path are appended - when the package name is empty, there is nothing to append and the relative path itself is the result. Tomas, what do you think? Thanks.

Patch I forgot to attach previously.

OK. Just the API name "JavaFileObject" seemed wrong, but maybe this is working as expected.

Looks like a better patch. Did you already test it on my sample case, or do you need me to verify?

>1) whereas I would expect to get some other kind of FileObject here since this is not a Java class
The JavaFileObject is a subclass of FileObject. Returning JFO is OK.

The patch in to FileObjects.getRelativePath is OK. It prevents '/' to be prepended.
Comment 5 Jan Lahoda 2011-03-28 17:26:55 UTC
I have tested it on the Jesse's testcase and it seems to work fine:

Whether or not this should be transplanted to 7.0 is up to QE: I think that the patch quite safe. I would recommend testing resolution of default-package references. I tested that, and it still seems to work OK, but independent test would be useful.
Comment 6 Marian Mirilovic 2011-03-29 00:48:15 UTC
I agree with integration into release70 after proper verification from us (QE). Jara, please take a look - thanks in advance.
Comment 7 Quality Engineering 2011-03-29 08:43:50 UTC
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201103290400* on (upload may still be in progress)

Confirmed that it works on my original test case.
