Description akemr 2002-11-28 08:40:00 UTC
info.xml files of some nbm's (e.g. metrics.nbm,
mdr ..) on
for NB 3.3.2 (or S1S 4.1) includes following header:

<!DOCTYPE module PUBLIC "-//NetBeans//DTD
Autoupdate Module Info 1.0//EN"

which cause exception:

and then updater unexpectedly freezes!

autoupdate-info-1_0.dtd was added into updater.jar
in NetBeans 3.4,
so you should omit this header from nbm's for NB < 3.4

If you use simple form (without <!DOCTYPE.. ) like
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<module codenamebase="..

then updater will work without problems.

update center" thread on nbusers.

To clarify: for NB 3.4+ no change needs to be made, nor should be
made; only for NB 3.3 and before.

What is the status here? This was filed as a P1 three months ago,
without so much as a response! Please evaluate, give estimate for
completion, etc.
Comment 3 rnovak 2003-02-28 20:14:55 UTC
I appologize for late respond.
I'll fix it as soon as possible.
Comment 4 rnovak 2003-03-04 13:46:01 UTC
<!DOCTYPE.. tag was removed from NBMs of modules published for
Netbeans 3.3.2.
It seems, that update of all NBMs from Alpha Update Center for NB
3.3.2 works fine.
