Hello all,

while investigating in creating a Java Web Start package from an Eclipse
RCP product with Buckminster, we found that the generated JNLP file for
the wrapper feature references the JNLP files for the dependent features
with a wrong href-location.

The structure generated by Buckminster looks like this:

- features
o feature1.jar
o feature2.jar
o …
- plugins
o plugin1.jar
o plugin2.jar
o …
- wrapper.jnlp
- feature1.jnlp
- feature2.jnlp

Whereas in the wrapper.jnlp file the feature1.jnlp and feature2.jnlp
files are referenced as

<extension … href=”features/feature1.jnlp” />
<extension … href=”features/feature2.jnlp” />

There was a short discussion on this topic a while ago via the list
buckminster-dev where the same problem has occurred. Please let me know
if someone can tell me about the current state of the JNLP generation in
Buckminster. We are about to create an EAR of our Java EE application
with an Eclipse RCP client that we would also like to build via
Buckminster. We can already build the RCP product with Buckminster on
Hudson and have now almost succeeded in build ing a Web Start version.
So we are almost there but this seems to be a show stopper…

Btw, we are using the latest 3.6 version (pulled in automatically via
Buckminster/Hudson integration).

without being actually sure about the JNLP thing, I assume that when you are using the latest version not much has changed (see my own topic about the whole JNLP generating feature).
we also massively depend on a working JNLP generating feature as so far all our applications are deployed as webstartable products.

we included an ant postprocessing step in our build process. you can read here http:// rt=0& how this currently works.
with that included we were able to build a webstart version of our product that can also be directly started from our buildserver (hudson) which is quite handy for people like your boss, that usually don't want to mess with ZIPed eclipse applications Wink

maybe that helps for the first.
