Description fvogler 2009-07-08 08:37:39 UTC
When you create two suite projects (just as cluster projects, not as app) and chain them,
the suite cluster you depend on is missing in the startup cluster list of your main suite.

I think there is an ant "if" and "unless" wrong in harness/run.xml

line 95:  <target name="-prepare-as-app" depends="-init" unless="">
line 103: <target name="-prepare-as-platform" depends="-init" if="">

Should be:
line 95:  <target name="-prepare-as-app" depends="-init" if="">
line 103: <target name="-prepare-as-platform" depends="-init" unless="">

Comment 1 fvogler 2009-07-08 14:51:39 UTC
Sorry, I used the wrong component.

Comment 2 Jesse Glick 2009-07-08 18:03:26 UTC
run.xml is correct AFAIK, unless this whole set of logic was completely invalidated with the changes in NB 6.7.
-prepare-as-app is used to run bin/netbeans (or whatever the base application's launcher name is) with some added
clusters; in this case there is no ${}. -prepare-as-platform is used to run a NB Platform application, calling
nbexec directly; in this case ${} would be set.
Comment 3 rmichalsky 2009-07-09 10:39:14 UTC
I can reproduce it, but the conditions are correct. It may be related to recent changes for launchers, I'm investigating.
Comment 4 rmichalsky 2009-07-09 20:04:30 UTC
fixed in core-main #1b26bac0d87b
Comment 5 sreimers 2009-07-09 22:02:16 UTC
There is the "67patch-candidate" status whiteboard - so what are chances for getting this into 6.7.1? It is a major
annoyance for using suite chaining....
Comment 6 Jesse Glick 2009-07-09 22:17:21 UTC
Verifying the fix in a dev build (or reopening if appropriate, of course) is the most important thing you can do.
Comment 7 Quality Engineering 2009-07-10 17:34:30 UTC
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *200907101400* on (upload may still be in progress)

The fix has been ported into the release67_fixes repository.
