Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / 2.99pre4 Won't Launch on OS X 10.11.2

Greetings,
@vahegan – It’s a security measure on eBay’s part. They’ve probably dropped a cookie marking that one browser as trustworthy, but because the other browser (and JBidwatcher) appear as different browsers, it treats them differently. Unfortunately the only thing that I’ve found that cures the captcha is time. :(

Oh, I played with a different browser and found out a strange thing. When I am using to login with the password which the system remembered in keychain, it never requests to enter any captcha, it just logs in.

When I am trying to login into eBay from a clean browser, I enter the password and then it tells me that the login was incorrect and offers to re-enter the password AND a captcha. When I enter the very same password along with the captcha, it logs me in. When I log out and try to log in, again, it doesn’t ask for a captcha and again reports that password was incorrect and a captcha – and the password works.

I don’t quite understand what’s going on with eBay, but that’s quite annoying…

Thank you, Morgan, I installed the pre5 and it now opens.
Unfortunately, I am still unable to use the program, I am getting a message “eBay has put a captcha” all the time. Last time I tried it quite a few months ago and I was hoping that by not using the sniper, the captcha would be removed, but no luck. Also, I never get any captcha to enter when I manually log in using the browser – this is only present when I am trying to use jbidwatcher…

Comment Topic: That's SO beta! / JBidWatcher 2.99pre4

Hi Morgan,

Thanks for your continued support of jBidWatcher! The beta is cool, but there are at least two problems with it that made me run screaming back to an older version 1) My ebay userID and current time keep flickering up and down by a few pixels every second. 2) I can no longer drag and drop an auction from RSSReader directly onto the jBidWatcher window. I am using Win7x64.

Cheers!

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Feature request: Drag to Dock Icon

Hi!

After reading the forums today I found out that you can add auctions by drag & drop. However, only if you drag to the open window of JBidwatcher (or I am doing something wrong). Would it be possible to implement dragging to the dock icon (I know that at least in OSX that works for some applications)? I don’t know how much work would be involved, but if it was a quick fix it would be a very neat addition to this already great program.

Cheers, Alex

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / 2.99pre4 multiple bugs

You’re a geeky furry coder and have a wife and kids? Impossible!! :)

The exceptions come and go, but the time left non-updating is constant.

I haven’t seriously written any Java in many years… like 1.1 was new and shiny and I had to rtfm the new event model. My ability to spot tricky issues with current java code is limited at best. I also have absolutely no java tools other than the JRE installed.

What is the point of the conditional there? The only time they’d equal is when they’re both zero, since first is always zero. And it makes exactly the same call as if the test were not there. It’s not going to be the current issue, but that’s the first thing I spotted looking at that code.

I don’t think the non-updating and the exceptions are related. The exceptions should be easy to fix by just catching that exception and skipping everything, because there’s no time left column to update. I think it’s normal behavior when you’re on the completed tab.

The fact that it appears every second suggests that it’s being called correctly, but the tablemodelevent isn’t causing a redraw. I’ve been poking at the java docs trying to figure out how exactly a tablechanged causes a redraw, but it’s beyond my java skills.

Why does one use table.getModel().getRowCount() and the other table.getRowCount()? The jtable getrowcount makes some mention of space, and might not be the same? Should lastrow also be table.getModel().getRowCount()?

Got a new error:

Fortunately I was watching it (after it failed to snipe yesterday and I missed something) and manually bid. It looks like a reasonable bid page (title is Place Bid) looking at the errors.log.

While poking at the code, I saw the thumbnail scaling code in tablemodel… that conditional set looks a little tortured (could be easily replaced by two conditionals), but I don’t see any obvious way it’d decide not to scale an image. must have been elsewhere.

Can’t remember if I pasted this one before or not:

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / 2.99pre4 multiple bugs

Greetings,
@bushytails – Are you also still having trouble with that exception in the logs?

If you look at the source code for the stack trace you posted, you can see that’s the method that’s updating ‘Time left’. So the two problems are tightly tied; somehow the table can not find the ‘Time left’ column when it’s trying to update.

That code is very specifically the code that tells the ‘Time left’ column to update every second.

So I now see that exception when I’m on the ‘Completed’ tab, but not on the ‘Current’ tab with a ‘Time left’ visible. (Thanks for the note that it only shows up on the console, not the log; that was a key insight!) I’m also seeing the non-updating, so I can replicate it. I’ll figure out what’s going on when I have time tonight. I don’t expect to put out a new pre-release for a few days, though. Putting out one so quickly to fix the Cancel Snipe really was rough, and burned up some goodwill with my wife and kids. :-)

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Development / Building JBidwatcher from git.

Greetings,
Wow! That’s a great write-up, and I appreciate it a lot!

I have to note, as a bit of caution, that I don’t support the IcedTea version of Java. Historically it’s been notoriously buggy, mostly in UI code that the majority of server-side Java devs don’t care about (and thus gets fewer eyes in an open source project). I don’t know what 8 is like, but it’s been a problem for me in the past.

JBidwatcher’s source tree does come with its own version of JRuby, and all those gems are packaged with it in the lib/jbidwatcher directory. Some in gems.jar, others expanded in the file system.

The amount of work that went into you putting that together is amazing, and I can’t thank you enough!

But now that same deleted item from an 8 Jan auction has again returned to Completed items. After many Clear Deleted Tracking.
Other items have made none of these ghost returns.

Otherwise, all seems well with 299pre5
Better than it has been in years!

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / 2.99pre4 multiple bugs

The non-updating of the time left column is still there in pre5, and still quite annoying. For example, one auction says 52m 25s time left, and has been saying that for quite a while, while it’s actually around 24 minutes left. From what I can tell, the time left column is only updated when some other part of the row is updated/redrawn. For example, the red box while updating it, clicking on it, etc.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Development / Building JBidwatcher from git.

Hi all,

There are a few posts asking how to compile JBidwatcher from source. For example:

Requirements for compiling recent Master branch
http://forum.jbidwatcher.com/forums/7/topics/5226

Tips on compiling JBidwatcher?
http://forum.jbidwatcher.com/forums/7/topics/5147

I had not run jbidwatcher for a long long time on my Gentoo Linux distribution due to errors. However, I thought I’ll try to compile from source to see if the errors went away. After many weeks of on/off debugging to get it to work on a Gentoo Linux distribution, I’ve written up a rough guide on how to compile JBidwatcher from git.

This guide is for installing JBidwatcher in the Gentoo linux distribution.

Requirements:

  1. Java SDK 1.8
  2. Ant
  3. JRuby + plus some other packages.

Install ant for building JBid

As root, emerge ant:

# emerge ant-core

Check the installed java environment with ant.

# ant -diagnostics

Java SDK version 1.8

Stable Gentoo does not have the latest Icedtea 3 (Java 1.8) so I had to install the java overlay using layman. The details of which are outside the scope of this guide. However, you’ll need to unmask the latest ebuilds provided by the Java overlay.

Yes, I could have install the official Sun JavaSDK, but I’d prefer to use the free-software version of java.

If you don’t have a java sdk yet, install the bin version first.

# emerge -v icedtea-bin

Remove icedtea-web package due to the version conflict with the newer icedtea you are about to install.
# emerge -C icedtea-web

Install the source version of icedtea-3 ebuild (which builds icedtea-8…) by install the virtual/jdk package.
# emerge -vp jdk

Select the new java-vm for the system.
# eselect java-vm set system 1

As a normal user select the icedtea-8 vm.

$ eselect java-vm set user 1
$ eselect java-vm show
Current system-vm
icedtea-8
Current user-vm
icedtea-8

Build JBidwatcher from source

As root, pull the latest git version of jbidwatcher.

# cd /usr/src/
# git clone https://github.com/cyberfox/jbidwatcher.git
# cd jbidwatcher
# ant clean
# ant

Ignore the error about Launch4j as this is used to create a windows EXE, but this is a linux system and we only need the jar file.
(See “Builds, Launch4J” http://forum.jbidwatcher.com/forums/7/topics/4380)

Copy the freshly built jar file to a suitable location for execution:

# cp JBidwatcher-2.99pre5.jar /opt/JBidwatcher/
# cd /opt/JBidwatcher/
# ln -s JBidwatcher-2.99pre5.jar JBidwatcher.jar

Running JBidwatcher

Jbidwatcher needs JRuby. From trial and error, JBidwatcher needs the a later version of JRuby than the version Gentoo has available. The background to the Gentoo/JRuby issue can be found here:
http://moving-innovations.com/blog/2014/04/23/the-precarious-state-of-jruby-in-gentoo

Hence, I installed the latest 1.7 series JRuby locally. It’s advised that jruby is installed from source and not a version package management system like RVM. Which I did originally and had other issues finding packages. As stated below (https://github.com/jruby/jruby/wiki/GettingStarted):

“On Linux and Mac, you can either install the JRuby binaries or use a Ruby version manager such as RVM. However, it’s best to avoid using a package manager because of issues with keeping the downloaded versions current. If you prefer to build your own JRuby, see Downloading JRuby Source and Building It Yourself.”

As a normal user you can execute the following commands to install JRuby locally:

$ wget https://s3.amazonaws.com/jruby.org/downloads/1.7.23/jruby-bin-1.7.23.tar.gz
$ tar -vxf jruby-bin-1.7.23.tar.gz
$ mv jruby-1.7.23/ ~/opt/
$ cd ~/opt/
ln -s jruby-1.7.23 jruby

In your .bashrc add the following path so the JRuby executable can be found:

export PATH=“${HOME}/opt/jruby/bin/:${PATH}” # Add jruby to PATH

You will also need to install the following jruby packages:

$ jruby -S gem install activesupport
$ jruby -S gem install logger
$ jruby -S gem install activerecord-jdbcderby-adapter

I’m assuming you are doing a clean install of jruby, and cleaning the global variables is a good idea.
$ unset RUBYLIB
$ unset GEM_PATH
$ unset GEM_HOME
$ unset IRBRC

For the source compiled JBidwatcher to work, you will need to set the RUBYLIB path with all the jruby packages it uses. After a lot of trial and error by running JBid and finding each missing package and adding it to the RUBYLIB cycle, I got this:

$ export RUBYLIB=“${HOME}/opt/jruby/lib/ruby/shared/:\
${HOME}/opt/jruby/lib/ruby/2.0/:\
${HOME}/opt/jruby/lib/ruby/1.9/:\
${HOME}/opt/jruby/lib/ruby/gems/shared/gems/activesupport-4.2.5/lib/:\
${HOME}/opt/jruby/lib/ruby/gems/shared/gems/thread_safe-0.3.5-java/lib/:\
${HOME}/opt/jruby/lib/ruby/gems/shared/gems/i18n-0.7.0/lib/:\
${HOME}/opt/jruby/lib/ruby/gems/shared/gems/logger-1.2.8/lib/:\
${HOME}/opt/jruby/lib/ruby/gems/shared/gems/tzinfo-1.2.2/lib/:\
${HOME}/opt/jruby/lib/ruby/gems/shared/gems/activerecord-jdbcderby-adapter-1.3.19/lib/:\
${HOME}/opt/jruby/lib/ruby/gems/shared/gems/activerecord-jdbc-adapter-1.3.19/lib/:\
${HOME}/opt/jruby/lib/ruby/gems/shared/gems/activerecord-jdbc-adapter-1.3.19/lib/arjdbc/:\
${HOME}/opt/jruby/lib/ruby/gems/shared/gems/activerecord-4.2.5/lib/:\
${HOME}/opt/jruby/lib/ruby/gems/shared/gems/activerecord-4.2.5/lib/active_record/:\
${HOME}/opt/jruby/lib/ruby/gems/shared/gems/activemodel-4.2.5/lib/:\
${HOME}/opt/jruby/lib/ruby/gems/shared/gems/arel-6.0.3/lib/”

Now a normal user can run JBidwatcher by executing the following command:

$ java -jar -Xms256m -Xmx512m /opt/JBidwatcher/JBidwatcher.jar

Hopefully, the JB application will start up and happy snipping.

I hope this helps and please add any other suggestions, corrections or tips.

Cheers

It failed to snipe an auction today. Item ended with no bids. The error log shows a network issue, even though my connection appeared to be fine… perhaps on any type of connection error, it should immediately retry the snipe, repeatedly? two bids won’t hurt anything, zero does!

They now seem to be once a second, every second. Only on the terminal, not saved to the errors log. The speed of the scroll makes seeing anything else sent to the terminal impossible.

The oversized image became properly sized when the item moved to completed.

Thanks again,

Darn! This WOULD happen at 11pm on a night when I want to snipe an eBay auction that ends at 3am.

Just FYI, I’m running on 10.6.8 and (foolishly) accepted the update. Now, JBidWatcher isn’t working.

Where can I go to download the previous version (2.5.6). On the site, I can only find 2.99.

I deleted the (upgraded) JBidWatcher and then tried manually downloading and installing 2.99, but it won’t install.
