Description Tomasz Slota 2006-09-12 14:17:39 UTC
No exceptions are thrown, request to start app server times out. I have tried GF build 48 and build V1 UR1 
Build 10.
Comment 1 Vince Kraemer 2006-09-12 16:02:38 UTC
filed a while ago as

I will figure out a way to get some kind of useful message to the user for this
case, if janey won't get this fix into GF v1 u1...
Comment 2 Vince Kraemer 2006-09-12 19:31:55 UTC
Cannot even install GF with a space in the path on linux...
Comment 3 Vince Kraemer 2006-09-14 01:46:14 UTC
The "fix" from the plugin is two fold:

1. change the start operation to fail faster.
2. put the error message that users get from 'asadmin start-domain' into the log
viewer that opens when users start the server.

This change also covers other cases (like failures to start the server because
another process is using one of the ports) with better error messages, faster.

There may be situations where we still need to timeout, but they will be  a lot

Note: changes in resolve a CPU usage issue if the
server's log file is not present. [the thread should have slept, but didn't]
Comment 4 Petr Jiricka 2006-09-15 16:19:01 UTC
In Glassfish issue 603 the evaluator says that spaces in paths are only
supported on Windows. So shouldn't the fix be rather to disallow installing GF
to a directory with spaces on Linux and Mac?

fix in release55_dev
Comment 7 _ ludo 2006-09-16 01:42:45 UTC
Can't fix the existing installer for 8.x or 9.0
So I agree with this plugin fix.
Comment 9 Jan Horvath 2006-09-18 17:46:26 UTC
in case of timeout the fix is OK. I get error message immediately. 
But the message doesn't contain nany warning about spaces in the installation path, only usual port 
conflict, ...
