 Description  « Hide

"To Obtain the Tutorial Component Using the Update Tool" on page 73 does not work properly on a Mac, at least not with the OS version I am running. The reason being is the update tool has the paths all wrong. If I look at the Files view of the Java EE 6 Tutorial version 6.0.7-4 they look like the example I have pasted below:


Everywhere there is a backslash () the folder structure is not created, you just get a file with the name "javaee-tutorial\doc\bnaay.html". As a result the file structure is completely missing on Mac OS and it is necessary to copy the tutorial from a Windows computer where either slash appears to work.

Looking into this right now. I don't know why the Update Center toolkit wouldn't handle Windows paths correctly when creating packages, but that's what this appears to be.

Changing priority to P1, as this package is broken on non-Windows platforms.

Created package 6.0.7-5 with correct file layout for Unix platforms. Release engineering will push it to the external repository soon.
