Description Jesse Glick 2004-09-08 20:41:57 UTC
040908 custom. Open platform manager. For default
platform, click Sources, then Add Folder/JAR. Type
in some nonexistent dir name, e.g. by just using
the file chooser wrong (e.g. double-clicking a
folder rather than single-clicking before
selecting Add). Exception is thrown.

1. Someone forgot to add '/' to the folder URL.

2. Probably the file chooser dialog should not let
you select the Add button to begin with unless you
have entered a valid, existing JAR or folder.
Check whether file.isDirectory() || (file.isFile()
&& FileUtil.isArchiveFile(file.toURI().toURL())).
Otherwise disable the Add button.

The  2nd point is not too easy. To be correct there is no nice way how
to force JFileChooser to do this. Ugly ways are
Container.getComponents () ore use the JFileChooser as Component and
create dialog with custom buttons. This causes problems with button

Comment 2 Tomas Zezula 2004-09-09 15:35:34 UTC
I've talked about the JFileChooser with Radek, and he already solved
this. He does the following:
If the file does not exist and 2 last name components are the same he
removes the last one from file name.
Should I do the same?

Close enough I guess.
