Description Jiri Rechtacek 2006-04-12 15:48:01 UTC
netbeans launcher filters cluster which doesn't exist in the startup time. The
launcher should transmit all declared by relative path. Makes problems in
Autoupdate to handle correctly target clusters declared in NBM header.

Comment 2 Jaroslav Tulach 2006-04-12 20:39:09 UTC
I have a patch that always adds the cluster. If it contains / it treats it as 
a fullpath, otherwise it prepends $progdir/../

Honzo, would such a change be possible also in the windows launcher?
Comment 3 Jan Chalupa 2006-04-12 21:11:26 UTC
Perhaps. But I won't have time to work on it in the next two weeks. If you can
provide a patch, I can build it, but that's about it.
Comment 4 Antonin Nebuzelsky 2006-06-20 13:37:57 UTC
Reassigning to Radim, new owner of the launcher.
Comment 5 _ rkubacki 2006-06-29 18:00:34 UTC
There is no cluster filtering in Windows launchers (netbeans.cpp & app.cpp). All
read values are passed without modification for further processing. Passing back
to Yarda so he can commit his change.

/shared/data/ccvs/repository/ide/launcher/unix/netbeans,v  <--  netbeans
new revision: 1.37; previous revision: 1.36

Fixed for unix launchers. I'll trust Radim that windows ones really correctly 
interpret non-existing relative clusters.
Comment 7 Jesse Glick 2006-10-26 16:13:22 UTC
Was reverted in trunk (1.40) due to other problems it caused, though I am
unconvinced that the issue should be fixed at all. Sounds rather like a bug in
AU that it is unable to create clusters.
Comment 8 Jaroslav Tulach 2006-11-24 16:49:35 UTC
Ok, here is the great vision by Jesse and me:

This is a great vision. I like it. But it will need a bit more work. A bit 
from Jirka R. and a bit on the ide/updatecenters side.

API between autoupdate and ide/updatecenters to allow extensibility of list of clusters
Comment 10 Jaroslav Tulach 2006-11-24 16:57:44 UTC
I believe this change allows us to simplify launcher a bit and address Jesse's 
objection against the handling of non-existing clusters. Moreover it gives us 
long desired functionality we need - e.g. create new clusters thru autoupdate. 
Reviewers please review, I'd like Jirka R. to help me integrate this at the 
end of next week.
Comment 11 Jesse Glick 2006-11-28 00:24:44 UTC
Looks fine to me.

os.write("\n".getBytes()) => os.write('\n')
Comment 12 Jaroslav Tulach 2006-12-01 10:39:10 UTC
Thanks for your comments, I'll integrate the change.
