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"?>
then updater will work without problems.
See also "Problem autoupdating from netbeans
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
I appologize for late respond.
I'll fix it as soon as possible.
<!DOCTYPE.. tag was removed from NBMs of modules published for
It seems, that update of all NBMs from Alpha Update Center for NB
3.3.2 works fine.
