Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Oxygen.1 and JDK9

Ok .. this is what you need to do:

* Drag & drop
* search again
* Click on "Installed" -> changes to "Update pending"
* Click on "Update pending" -> changes to "Update"
* Click on "Update" -> continues
* Confirm
* Accept

The initial DnD operation simply opens the dialog, but doesn't do the search. So I guess it could be replaced by "Open MPC".

I don't want to blame anyone for this, but this is more than a bit confusing. Clicking three times on the same button is not what I would expect.

I guess the right resolution would be to wait for Oxygen.1a and hope that it will provide Java 9 support of the box. It is just two more weeks anyway.

Thanks for your help!

It says "Installed" instead of "Update" because it was decided to focus on the "Install" flow on the main list tab, and move actions for installed items to the "Installed" tab. The "Installed" button will take you there and show the available operations.

I agree that that can be confusing. Would you mind opening a bug about that?
