Go to http://$server:$port/js/popup.js

see the copyright notice:

According to the site, there is a list of items that require payment.  I don't know if our usage falls into that category or not.

Comment 1 Red Hat Bugzilla 2009-11-10 21:19:00 UTC
This bug was previously known as http://jira.rhq-project.org/browse/RHQ-888


Comment 2 Corey Welton 2010-08-12 19:59:28 UTC
Greg, please look into this.  The code in question is still there (though whether we use it or not is another question).

Comment 5 John Sanda 2010-10-14 20:34:47 UTC
This component certainly not be needed with the GWT-based UI. After grepping through the code base some, it wasn't clear to if it is needed in our JSF-based UI. I have done preliminary testing in the older, JSF-based UI with the component removed from popup.js. I have not observed any problems.

Comment 6 John Sanda 2010-10-15 16:36:51 UTC
I have tested this in the release-3.0.0 branch as well. The component has been removed from popup.js.

Comment 7 Rajan Timaniya 2010-10-22 07:40:57 UTC

QE,
We need to check if this is still a problem with 2.4.1

Comment 9 Charles Crouch 2010-11-02 04:58:33 UTC
Given Rajan's last comment I believe this should be ON_DEV, pending addressing this issue in the master branch

Comment 10 Corey Welton 2011-01-06 15:23:03 UTC
Removing blocker against jon241 version of this bug

Comment 11 Ian Springer 2011-03-30 19:55:14 UTC
I've removed the offending code from master as well - [master b73e1a2].

Comment 12 Sunil Kondkar 2011-06-03 07:08:17 UTC
