Comment 1 David Konecny 2004-06-02 12:03:57 UTC
JDK 1.5 specific problem. Perhaps in Ant? I need to investigate. For
now run IDE in <1.5 JDK.
Comment 2 Peter Nabbefeld 2004-06-02 13:03:31 UTC
No, it is not dependent on 1.5. I've got the same problem, when
starting with 1.4.2 and 1.5.0b2 - assuming that parameters
netbeans.conf are correctly evaluated (the default platform still
refers to JDK 1.5, I've felt this would be dependent on the JDK the
IDE is started with).
Comment 3 David Konecny 2004-06-02 13:33:34 UTC
It is JDK related. If you start IDE in JDK 1.5 then any project for
which you set (change) some explicit platform will be broken. Do the
same in IDE started with JDK1.4 and it will be corrected. This is most
probably the JDK bug linked from issue 43624. I'm going to workaround
it somohow.

You can easily fixed the script by searching for text "${@{value}" and
replacing it with "${@{value}}" - the last parenthesis is missing.

Workarounded in:

new revision: 1.14; previous revision: 1.13
Comment 5 Jesse Glick 2004-10-12 17:57:01 UTC
The JDK bug was fixed in 1.5.0, so I will remove the workaround.
Comment 6 Jiri Prox 2005-07-07 15:02:18 UTC
Verified in 4.2 (200507061800)
