WebAOM won't load for the last couple days

Post by PsychoMike »

Has anyone else had a problem accessing web aom lately?

I know I was using it ok Friday and possibly early on Saturday, but for at least the last 48 hours or so it won't load at all.

I get the outline of the applet, and the status bar says "applet loading" for a second, but then the status changes to "applet noninited" and I get the red "X" in the applet area.

Here's the exception dump from the java console:

Code: Select all

	at javax.swing.SwingUtilities.updateComponentTreeUI(Unknown Source)
	at epox.swing.JComboBoxLF$2.actionPerformed(JComboBoxLF.java:35)
	at javax.swing.JComboBox.fireActionEvent(Unknown Source)
	at javax.swing.JComboBox.setSelectedItem(Unknown Source)
	at javax.swing.JComboBox.setSelectedIndex(Unknown Source)
	at epox.swing.JComboBoxLF.<init>(JComboBoxLF.java:43)
	at epox.webaom.ui.JPanelOptDiv.<init>(JPanelOptDiv.java:97)
	at epox.webaom.ui.JPanelMain.init(JPanelMain.java:225)
	at epox.webaom.ui.JPanelMain.<init>(JPanelMain.java:109)
	at epox.webaom.A.init(A.java:92)
	at epox.webaom.WebAOM.init(WebAOM.java:61)
	at sun.applet.AppletPanel.run(Unknown Source)
	at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)
It doesn't look like web aom itself has been changed lately, so I was thinking it might be a problem with the API?

I've tried this on three different machines - two with Linux+Firefox and one with XP+Firefox. Same problem anywhere. Don't have IE available or I'd try it there too...

To me it looks like UI functions are called from outside the event dispatcher thread, this can cause a lot of random errors.

I just managed to get it working on one of the linux machines by

- updating to Java 1.5 (the system default was still 1.4.2)
- and running the jar directly (still won't work as an applet)

Now that it's loaded I also see fresh entries in the changelog (that weren't in the changelog.txt that came with the source) that mention stuff that was done yesterday:

1.19g 15.07.2007:

*Fixed NullPointerException @ RecDir (introduced in d) thx to s2d4theworld.

*Added support for 64 bit file sizes.

*Added LookAndFeel switch.

*Removed rules dropdown. Controlled in the rules tab.

When I was digging through the source to investigate that exception I believe the only JComboBox (where the exception was happening) was for the rules. So maybe something about that code change triggered my issues - maybe unintentionally pushed web aom to 1.5 only?

It's working well enough for me now I guess, I don't really need it as a web page applet, but I'm still curious. Anyone else hit this issue?

I'm still seeing the issue, but I probably have the applet in cache or need to restart my jvm or something. I'll keep playing with it.

Thanks for the prompt response!
