Description Petr Jiricka 2010-05-25 11:29:49 UTC

Comment 1 Petr Jiricka 2010-05-25 11:36:33 UTC
The build zip archive contains two files whose name is almost identical but the case:

in directory:

This causes problems when unpacking on some platforms, such as Windows or case-insensitive Mac drives.

This problem was introduced by the upgrade to JRuby 1.5 a week ago.
When I download the stock JRuby 1.5 installation, it only contains the lower-case source.rb file, not the upper-case source.RB file. So the problem is in the packaging process of JRuby into NetBeans.
Comment 2 Tomas Pavek 2010-05-25 12:03:16 UTC
The two files also have different content, looks like source.RB has some additional code. Don't we patch it and save with changed case?
Comment 3 Erno Mononen 2010-05-27 11:31:34 UTC
The source.rb and source.RB files are part of the ruby-debug-0.10.3 gem, which is now bundled with JRuby (as of 1.5). The gem provides command line debugging and is not under our control (i.e. is not part of debug-commons), so I can't fix the issue in the gem itself. I'll notify the gem owner about this. For 6.9 I can resolve the issue by removing the gem from the bundled JRuby; then it won't be possible to do cli debugging out-of-the-box, but I think we can live with that (that was the case before as well).
Comment 4 Petr Jiricka 2010-05-27 11:41:42 UTC
You are saying that this gem is a part of JRuby, but when I download the JRuby distribution from, there is just one of these files. How is this possible? It looks like they somehow deal with this in JRuby.
Comment 5 Erno Mononen 2010-05-27 11:51:56 UTC
The files are in a .gem file, ruby-debug-0.10.3.gem to be specific - the gem is then installed (unpacked) as part of the build process.
Comment 6 Erno Mononen 2010-05-31 08:38:57 UTC
Fixed in 7aa4d2cb1670 by removing ruby-debug from the bundled JRuby. The two files are provided by the ruby-debug gem, but apparently it is somehow platform specific whether they both really get installed. Removing the gems seems like the best way to fix this for 6.9.
Comment 7 Erno Mononen 2010-05-31 08:45:59 UTC
I guess this should be transplanted to release69 if it is not too late, so raising the priority and adding the keyword.
Comment 8 Erno Mononen 2010-05-31 13:06:46 UTC
pchytil, can you please verify the issue so that this can be put to 6.9? Thanks.
Comment 9 Quality Engineering 2010-06-01 12:28:34 UTC
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201006011333* on (upload may still be in progress)

Comment 10 Petr Chytil 2010-06-02 08:13:35 UTC
Finally, I was able to verify it in which was the first build, which contains the fix. I also tried to unzip build 3304 and it still contained the error - that's ok.
Comment 11 Petr Chytil 2010-06-02 09:25:48 UTC
verified also in NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201006020001)
Comment 12 Erno Mononen 2010-06-03 08:46:41 UTC
Transplanted to release69 in 65815be67d98.
Comment 13 rbalada 2010-06-14 07:51:11 UTC
Transplanted  to release691 as 7951ab367944

(Marking verified per Petr Chytil's comment)
Comment 14 rbalada 2010-06-14 08:38:07 UTC
Added keyword 6.9.1_CANDIDATE to bugfixes, which were integrated in release69 repository *after* the release691 clone has been created.
Comment 15 Tomas Danek 2010-07-08 13:16:32 UTC
