      I should be 'free' in about a week to look into the state of things.

      Thanks guys! I installed the sun JRE next to pcgen and updated the script
      to use that version instead of the OpenJDK default (I don't want to change
      the system default because I'm doing a lot of performance analysis on
      OpenJDK for Scala right now).

      Can I ask which TreeTable component you're using that does not work on
      OpenJDK?

      As far as packaging is concerned, I think the hardest part is figuring out
      what requirements to make for pcgen. A .deb package for ubuntu would be
      hard now that that Sun JRE is no longer supported. You'd have to rely on
      the old repo and still give people special instructions for how to install.

      In any case, packaging is usually as simple as specifying what the installed
      directory should look like and writing scripts to do pre/post
      install/uninstall to make sure the environment is correct and everything is
      clean. If someone else is doing this, great!

      Thanks again for the help.

            Hi Josh,

            There's plenty of fun stuff in our tree tables. I had a play at working out what was going wrong but didn't get any good results. There was a problem with the number of rows that were reported but there was something extra as spoofing the result still gave blank tree views under some cases.

            The good news is we already have this problem sorted out in the new user interface - it runs nicely using the OpenJDK.  However it doesn't yet cover the full range of functionality so can't be slotted in just yet.

            Cheers,
            James.

              Hi Josh,

              There's plenty of fun stuff in our tree tables. I had a play at working out what was going wrong but didn't get any good results. There was a problem with the number of rows that were reported but there was something extra as spoofing the result still gave blank tree views under some cases.

              The good news is we already have this problem sorted out in the new user interface - it runs nicely using the OpenJDK.  However it doesn't yet cover the full range of functionality so can't be slotted in just yet.

              Cheers,
              James.

              So... what special class is your List widget using?  Is it doing some of the 'fun' (and painful) PLAF magikz?    It's been so long since I did a Swing app, but I'm more than willing to help.  Although at this point, I'd love to Wizards to let me pay for a PCGen DnD 4e dataset.  Seems more cost effective for them!

                Hi Josh, The new UI will be merged into trunk once it is ready so I d target trunk for now. Cheers, James. On 7/08/2011 10:45 AM Josh Suereth wrote

                  Sorry, that should be .rpm or .deb.  Whichever is needed.

                  Sounds like I should hold off on a .deb package until one of the packaged JDKs is supported...  I mean, I could write the package against the new UI (is this on a branch or on trunk) and you can have a .deb once it's all ready to roll...

                  Hi Josh,

                  There's plenty of fun stuff in our tree tables. I had a play at working out what was going wrong but didn't get any good results. There was a problem with the number of rows that were reported but there was something extra as spoofing the result still gave blank tree views under some cases.

                  The good news is we already have this problem sorted out in the new user interface - it runs nicely using the OpenJDK.  However it doesn't yet cover the full range of functionality so can't be slotted in just yet.

                  Cheers,
                  James.

                  So... what special class is your List widget using?  Is it doing some of the 'fun' (and painful) PLAF magikz?    It's been so long since I did a Swing app, but I'm more than willing to help.  Although at this point, I'd love to Wizards to let me pay for a PCGen DnD 4e dataset.  Seems more cost effective for them!

                  Yes at this stage we still require the Sun/Oracle JDK (I hope to change this one day).

                  Sorry guys.  I got sucked up into book deadlines (which has been stealing my OSS dev time).

                  Quick question, since I'm still on an old version:  Does PCGen still require Sun's JDK?

                  I should be 'free' in about a week to look into the state of things.

                  Thanks guys! I installed the sun JRE next to pcgen and updated the script
                  to use that version instead of the OpenJDK default (I don't want to change
                  the system default because I'm doing a lot of performance analysis on
                  OpenJDK for Scala right now).

                  Can I ask which TreeTable component you're using that does not work on
                  OpenJDK?

                  As far as packaging is concerned, I think the hardest part is figuring out
                  what requirements to make for pcgen. A .deb package for ubuntu would be
                  hard now that that Sun JRE is no longer supported. You'd have to rely on
                  the old repo and still give people special instructions for how to install.

                  In any case, packaging is usually as simple as specifying what the installed
                  directory should look like and writing scripts to do pre/post
                  install/uninstallto make sure the environment is correct and everything is
                  clean. If someone else is doing this, great!

                  Thanks again for the help.
