Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] JustJ JREs and Browsing

Hi Ed,

this looks good, I'll try to check if I can use this :-)

Just a note on your goody change:

It is common in web development to have a dummy index file to prevent browsing/discovery of files in a folder, so your solution might disclose otherwise (intentionally) hidden content.

I wanted to make the community aware that the initial prototyping work for providing JREs that can be redistributed by Eclipse is now complete.

The JustJ project is well documented.  You can find the details here:

If you want to cut to the chase, see this section for how to try this out in your product:

Please keep in mind that everything located in "sandbox" is transient and subject to arbitrary change and removal.

I've documented the ci instance as well and have made the job configurations readable:

Please use either or the forum to provide feedback or to ask questions.


As an extra goody, I wanted a better browser for the contents of so I implemented a PHP script specifically for that purpose.   I did this for JustJ's content, but the result is fully general so I generalized it to provide the following link from which to get started at the root:

Starting here, you can browse anything on the server.   It has the advantage that you can browse folder content even if there is an index.html or index.php in that folder.


I took this one step further for my own project via this link:

I.e., it adds action links to the browser to help manage the justj site.

I asked for to be installed via this:

This allows me to open a parameterized build's page with pre-configured parameter values.  Specifically this simple build:

The delete folder action links can (and does) open a page like this:

I.e., the links can run an arbitrary script with genie's credentials. Of course only authenticated users with genie.justj group permissions can actually do this.
