RE: [wtp-pmc] Critical Web services bug 161250 needed in WTP 1.5.2

Thanks for the heads-up, Chris. Let us know when you have a patch. Sounds like this is serious enough to require a re-spin.

Subject: [wtp-pmc] Critical Web services bug 161250 needed in WTP 1.5.2
Importance: High


a bug we found recently in WTP 1.5.2 has turned out to be much worse, 161250. The bug causes the Web service wizard to throw an exception while checking for the existence and currency of "webserviceutils.jar" in a Web project to which Web service sample JSPs are about to be generated. It occurs whenever spaces are involved in the installation path of the platform. It occurs at the point we try to construct a from a file: URL string that has non-encoded spaces (ie. " " instead of "%20").

This is a regression, and while I try to figure out why we have not found this before, is one I consider stop-ship for the release. We are in the process of writing a simple patch since the root problem is quite basic in nature, but I wanted to get this bug on the PMC's radar right away in the hope of pre-starting the voting process. I'll post to wtp-dev & wtp-pmc again once we have the patch applied to the bug and extremely well tested.

Sorry for the 11th hour alarm, and thanks for your support.
Cheers - CB.
