Description bugbridge 2007-02-05 19:11:49 UTC
Original status: 7-Fix in Progress; Suggested Status: STARTED

Original Target Release: shortfin_dev; Suggested Target Milestone : 5.5

Original submitter: mbohm

For instance, the itemNumber property of BuyNowPostData is a String, and uses
com.sun.jsfcl.std.ValueBindingPropertyEditor. If you type a String directly into
the property sheet, it does not take.

And if you open the property editor dialog up, and type a String, it also does
not take.

BuyNowPostData.itemNumber is just an example. This is a general problem in the
bp components.

Note that this is not a regression; it was so in Leopard as well.

Gregory recommends trying to replace
com.sun.jsfcl.std.ValueBindingPropertyEditor with
com.sun.rave.propertyeditors.binding.ValueBindingPropertyEditor (in the
BeanInfos). If it works, the change should probably be made globally within the

Evaluation (Entry 2):
Marking accepted.

Evaluation (Entry 3):
Marking fix in progress. I tried replacing most of the
ValueBindingPropertyEditors as indicated by the attached diff, but,
unfortunately, while this works well in shortfin, it gives leopard trouble, for
instance, a ClassCastException thrown by ValueBindingPropertyEditor when
interacting with the property sheet for a rating component.

Evaluation (Entry 4):
Lowering to P3/S3 (I was the submitter), since this is in the ajax complib,
which is released post-FCS.

Comment 2 Matthew Bohm 2007-06-30 06:18:04 UTC
When I specify com.sun.jsfcl.std.ValueBindingPropertyEditor, I see the lame property editor; when I specify
org.netbeans.modules.visualweb.propertyeditors.binding.ValueBindingPropertyEditor, I see the good property editor. I'm
mystified, because in nb6, the latter extends the former with no changes. But I should not spend more time on this now,
given the bug priorities. Changing from defect to enhancement.
