Checkout with -d argument doesn't open project window (bug?)  XML
Forum Index » JCVS Users
Author Message

When I try to Checkout the one of my projects with jCVS and use the -d
option/argument to give it a different name (e.g. -d different) I get the
following jCVS error window:

Open Project Failed
Could not open repository 'C:\another\location\projects\myproject'.
admin directory 'C:\another\location\projects\myproject\CVS' does not exist
[OK] button

Command Line equivalent:
cd C:\another\location
cvs co -d different /projects/myproject

The project/module files are checked out to (as expected):
C:\another\location\different

If I don't use the -d option/argument then I can successfully Checkout my
project with jCVS and get the Project window.

Command Line equivalent:
cd C:\another\location
cvs co /projects/myproject

The project/module files are checked out to (as expected):
C:\another\location\projects\myproject

In all cases (whether I use the -d or not) the correct files appear to be copied
to my local directory (sandbox). The problem is using the -d option seems to
kill the Project window. Without the Project window I can't really use jCVS to
work with the project files.

I'm using:
- Windows XP (Service Pack 1)
- CVS Kit version 1.11.15 (http://www.cvshome.org)
- jCVS Client version 5.4.1 (http://www.jcvs.org)
- Java 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition Version 1.4.2

I was aware of this bug, bug I thought that I had fixed this long ago.

Thank you for the report, and I will attempt to correct it (once again) when I
get a chance.

As I stated before, using the Windows OS (for clients) we are using:
- CVS Kit version 1.11.15 (http://www.cvshome.org)
- jCVS Client version 5.4.1 (http://www.jcvs.org)
- Java 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition Version 1.4.2
(http://java.sun.com)

However, the repository is on a Linux box (has been for a few years):
- Red Hat Linux 8.0
- Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.2 (client/server)

Sorry, I should have included this information in the first posting.

Thank you for the followup. However, this bug is exclusively an issue with the
jCVS client, and has nothing to do with the server. I remember a little more
clearly now that when I looked into this bug it was more complicated than I
originally thought; the information that I needed to correct the problem was not
available at that place in the code. I will look again and followup with some
estimate of what it will take (and when) to fix the bug.

Just to be sure you know, while the bug does prevent the initial opening of the
project window, the project is indeed fully intact. You can simply open it using
the open project command, and from that point on it will operate as normal. In
other words, it is only an issue of initially opening the window after the
checkout.

I can verify that the project window can be opened as you stated.

Thank you for the followup. I will investigate further as soon as I get the
time.
