1. Add MySQL server with all (Basic and Admin) properties.
2. Rightclick server's node and choose "Start". MySQL server is started and IDE is connected to it.
3. Rightclick server's node and choose "Disconnect".
4. Rightclick server's node and choose "Start". Message that MySQL server is started appears and it suggests to connect
to the server.
5. Rightclick server's node.
Result: "Connect" context menu item is disabled since connection was established automatically. But message before said
"try to connect". It can mislead customer. I think message should contain information about automatic attempt to connect.
Yes, this was an inconsistency I recently introduced, we should fix this, it's confusing.
David, can You take a look at this issue? This issue is P3, but it is very annoying and therefore this issue is going to
be included into NetBeans 6.5 Patch 1.
Please fix it till 27 November (this is code freeze date for Patch 1) or update this issue with justification why the
fix isn't possible till this date.
yes, I can do this by Nov 27.
David, actually now milestone is 25-26 November. :)
Are you still able to finish in time?
If not, please remove status whiteboard.
Hm, this happens when I (a) validate a connection and then (b) get the connection and use it. I'll check it out, we
should get this fixed.
I don't know what that last comment was about. Anyway, now I'm getting a worse situation, where it says: "Unable to
start the MySQL server because it appears to be already running at host localhost, port localhost. Please try
connecting to the server. It is also possible another process is listening on that port."
Well, hm, *I* was the one who just started it, why are you trying to start it again? I'll track this down.
No more message, thanks very much.
Based on the comment above, I'm marking the issue as FIXED. Roman, could you verified it ASAP? Thanks.
Thanks, I missed marking it as fixed.
Verified with build 081126.
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *200811270201* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
