FTP Team functions don't work - ftp: URLs unsupported
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:59:46 EDT
Description of problem: The team FTP functions in eclipse don't
currently work because creating a new ftp: URL object always fails. I
talked to Tom Tromey about this, and he said there isn't currently a
handler for ftp: URLs.
I kind of found this by accident. We don't have a test case for this,
but we will in the future.
This seems to be a problem both with tree-ssa and gcc mainline. I
don't know where the proper place to file this is - let me know if I
need to put it somewhere else.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click on project -> Target Site...
2. Select FTP and define a new FTP site
(or create a simple java program that creates a ftp: URL and compile
using gcj or gcj-ssa)
Actual results: The "URL" field in the FTP site creation dialog is
never valid ("Finish" button is never enabled) because the ftp: URL
object isn't properly instantiated.
Expected results: FTP site definition should proceed.
FYI, we can fix this by packaging GNU inetlib
(see inetlib module of Classpath repository)
and setting things up to use it by default.
I'm working on putting together a fix for this.
RHDS 2.0 (Eclipse 3.0) is no longer uses gcj, closing bug.
