Description Michael Nazarov 2010-05-24 09:04:44 UTC
There is no JavaFX support for Solaris SPARC platform, but there are three plugins available for install.
None of them installable because of error described on screenshot.
Comment 1 Jiri Kovalsky 2010-05-24 09:17:00 UTC
Michael, can you please attach the screenshot? Thanks!

Oops, sorry, looks like I missed attach during entering issue.
Comment 4 Jiri Kovalsky 2010-05-24 09:48:47 UTC
Robert, can you please discuss this problem with Martin Ryzl and suggest a solution? Thanks!
Comment 5 Martin Ryzl 2010-05-25 13:20:14 UTC
Please provide exact version numbers of the affected plugins. It may be an issue related to latest RC, however, the dependency looks rather old. I don't have Solaris so I depend on the information provided by you.
Comment 6 rnovak 2010-05-25 20:24:00 UTC
New version of JavaFX modules was published today. This could fix the problem, could you, please verify ?
Comment 7 Jiri Kovalsky 2010-05-26 07:17:14 UTC
Michael, any update on this? Thanks!

Comment 10 Martin Ryzl 2010-05-26 08:03:01 UTC
4/20 date means the plugins you see are definitely old. Now we have to investigate what build are you using, configuration of your UC client, ie. which update centers and their URLs.
Comment 11 Michael Nazarov 2010-05-26 08:05:20 UTC
Latest 6.9 RC1 from 24 May.
Comment 12 Jiri Kovalsky 2010-05-26 08:23:05 UTC
I am afraid that there is no way how to fix this issue. We could possibly create several binaries for these three samples which would then use OpenIDE-Module-Requires attribute to determine visibility on supported operating systems but:

* these modules would have conflicting values of codenamebase attributes and
* there is no way to differentiate Solaris SPARC from other platforms (x86, IA-32)


Martine, do you have some other saving idea?
Comment 13 Michael Nazarov 2010-05-26 08:25:31 UTC
Why don't we just remove these three items from update center?
Comment 14 Michael Nazarov 2010-05-26 08:26:45 UTC
Sorry, I missed:
there is no way to differentiate Solaris SPARC from other platforms
Comment 15 Martin Ryzl 2010-05-26 09:05:24 UTC
The screenshot shows another issue - implementation dependency on other module. This issue has been solved some time ago. The old dates on modules likely indicate problems with the UC configuration.
Comment 16 Lukas Hasik 2010-05-26 09:45:23 UTC
I cannot see any dependency on a module from 4/20 as shown in Michael's screenshot.  

IMO, the problem could be that there is an "old" module in your userdir. Could you try to start the IDE with fresh userdir?
Have you imported "old" userdir?

Comment 17 Michael Nazarov 2010-05-26 10:12:44 UTC
I always use clean machine because I also test installer/uninstaller :)
Yes, this is situation without old userdir in any way.

Anyway feel free to check it, I don't believe we have only one Solaris SPARC machine available!
Comment 18 Petr Chytil 2010-05-26 11:27:09 UTC
I have just tried this scenario on a SunRay:
bash-3.00$ uname -a
SunOS sr1-eprg06-09 5.10 Generic_138888-08 sun4v sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-T200

NetBeans build was 6.9/rc1/2010-05-24_22-01-15 (official RC1) Java SE edition. Then, I have installed JavaFX Composer plugin from the update center. Installation did not show any errors, then I performed IDE restart.
When IDE started again, I have created Java FX Desktop Business Application project, added a Button to the scene and performed Run Main Project action. Again, no errors, this is content of the output window:
Java Accessibility Bridge for GNOME loaded.

Created application then started normally.
Comment 19 Lukas Hasik 2010-05-26 11:29:58 UTC
Michael, could you
1, check URL of UC - Tools > Plugins > Settings > NetBeans >URL
2, check from what UC the "JavaFX kit" is coming 
3, what build did you install?
Comment 20 Michael Nazarov 2010-05-26 11:47:07 UTC
2. NetBeans, described at [1]
3. NetBeans IDE 6.9 RC1 (Build 201005242201)
Comment 21 Lukas Hasik 2010-05-26 15:06:53 UTC
ok, as I still think that there have to be a mess on the machine or i n your userdir, could we investigate the bug. Or could you?

1, check what you can see in the for codenamebase="org.netbeans.modules.javafx.profiler"
Why? There can be a stupid cache providing you old content...

2, run the IDE with --userdir "some-path" and install the FX. I know that you've sad that it is clean machine but just to be sure ;)

3, attach messages.log
Comment 22 Michael Nazarov 2010-05-26 15:18:55 UTC
I don't think there is cache or something like this -- too sophisticated :)
Anyway will run with specified path to userdir.
Comment 23 Michael Nazarov 2010-05-27 08:08:09 UTC
As I found there were some changes on update center so now four fx plugins available and all of them installable -- I did it successfully.

So the only question for now -- should these plugins be available for SPARC platform or no.
Comment 24 Martin Ryzl 2010-05-27 08:29:23 UTC
Although it seems at least basic stuff works on Solaris SPARC (as verified by Petr Chytil), to be consistent with JavaFX supported platforms only Solaris x86 should be visible. I'm not sure this can be easily fixed for 6.9.
Comment 25 Lukas Hasik 2010-05-27 12:26:48 UTC
there is no way to differenciate between solaris sparc and solaris x86 now. It could be reported as new improvement for UC and module system.

I'm closing this bug as it isn't reproducible anymore
Comment 26 Michael Nazarov 2010-05-27 12:30:37 UTC
There are number of plugins -- why not reproducible?
Will not fix is better status.
Comment 27 Michael Nazarov 2010-05-28 09:10:28 UTC
BTW RC2 affected again -- it's not possible to install JavaFX plugins.
