Description Need Real Name 2003-06-26 14:59:15 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
While editing a 1500 line .java file in JDE mode (http://jdee.sunsite.dk/),
putting the point on the first line of:

     *   <li> Create user session with another call to
{@link DriverManager#getConnection(String, String,
     *        String)} with user's oracle name and password.  Throws
     *        <code>AppException</code> if an error occurs.

and selecting M-q to reformat it destroys the buffer contents by deleting all
but the javadoc snippet above.  Undo (C-x u) is unavailable and buffer is
disassociated from file (M-x revert-file doesn't work).  A Lisp error backtrace
buffer shows:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (args-out-of-range 9952 10069)
  put-text-property(9952 10069 fontified nil)
  jit-lock-after-change(10069 10069 14)
  fill-region-as-paragraph(10014 10263 nil)

JDE version is 2.3.2.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load a Java source file with a Javadoc comment with lines greater than 78
characters and (maybe) includes a {@link} tag that spans two lines.
2. Put point on first line of javadoc comment described in (1).
3. Do a M-q

Actual Results:  See summary.

Expected Results:  The javadoc snippet should be reformatted to be no more than
78 characters per line.

Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2004-01-13 07:52:07 UTC
Does this still happen with Emacs 21.3?

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2004-01-13 18:33:08 UTC
No.  The problem appears to be fixed.

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2004-01-14 02:25:59 UTC
