Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / 2.99pre5-2-g7251940 memory leak?

I don’t run a lot of java programs but I’ve run the 2.5.x stable versions for many months at a time and not had any crashes or lockups.

The reason i posted the error details above is because the instability is something new and hopefully it will help Morgan get to the root of the problem.

I’ve just started a fresh instance of jbidwatcher with no items in the current list and i’m getting the errors below straight away.

I deleted an item in the time between the auction ending and the item being moved to the completed tab. It still appeared on the completed tab, but with much information missing, like the seller saying “unknown”.

By far the biggest/worst issues I’m having are the failure to retry, and the randomly deciding auctions are ended when they’re not. Missed another one today due to ended issue. If you fixed those it’d miss a lot fewer snipes…

I’ve found most java programs leak horribly. I usually restart jbidwatcher every couple days or its memory usage grows to where my laptop has problems hibernating.

Wed interface would be great, so far I’ve been running JBidwatcher on a headless FreeBSD server using xpra (https://xpra.org).

I’ve had an instance of 2.99pre5-2-g7251940 running on Ubuntu 14.04 since the 15th of February. It’s had nothing to snipe on, just sat running.

I’ve just gone to add something to snipe on and it seems it’s not well. The console history only goes back to February 24th but there’s a whole lot of error messages and JBidwatcher itself has a blank white screen and is unresponsive.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Strange behaviour with 2.99

Running Windows 7, on ebay.co.uk, I had snipes on v2.99, and they apparently never fired.

I checked it out manually, and found that, when the call to set up the snipe came at the 2 minute point, the system failed to connect and I was logged out of ebay. If I reconnected, the snipes would then fire – there was no network problem.

Checking later, I found that my time sync was well adrift – it looked like 14 seconds! When I re-synched the time, the connect failure problem disappeared. But I wonder why the system seemed to work when I booted Jbid, but failed when a snipe came up…?

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Jbidwatcher invisible

Everytime I open, login, to Jbidwatcher it displays fine, normal in every way. Once I choose a different application, and try to return to Jbidwatcher nothing is visible other than the menu bar along the top.
I can’t get any window to display. Also the same thing happens if I minimize Jbidwatcher; nothing displays other than the menu along the top. I’ve tried clicking on the icon until I"m blue in the face!
I have version
JBidwatcher (2.99pre5-2-g7251940) but this was happening before I updated it. I have to reopen the application everytime in order to view my auctions. It makes it impossible to use my computer for anything but Jbidwatcher. I’m in need of help!
thanks,

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Development / CLI, Web Interface

Hello,

So I’ve made a small fork of this program and my aim is to add a CLI and a web based interface so that it’s possible to run it on a small host like a pi and use a web based system to use the program.

I’ve exchanged the script engine with jruby 9.0.5.0 and fixed a few class loader path issues, I try to make it easy to compile from a git pull on and won’t even pretend to keep the mac support alive at this stage of the fork.

I have the web service running from the internal script engine using sinatra. I am basically looking for someone who is interested to help me build that sinatra part of the deal while I can concentrate on feeding in the data.

It’s about using ruby to display the data in a neat fashion. My approach in that will proably be very minimal.

Im not aiming to replace something here, rather widen the functionality.

Regards, Cookie.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / version 2.99pre5-2-g7251940 feels buggy

I just downloaded this version a couple of days ago, and it’s just feeling a bit on the buggy side. And I just didn’t win the first auction I placed a JBidwatcher snipe on. That is, previous versions have been working awesomely, and for the first time ever, I missed out on an auction that I really wanted to win.
So….I’m wondering if I should “downgrade” to a previous version? If so, how do I do that

Thanks!

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Development / New feature request - multisnipe.

I know that multi-snipe is currently disabled in the latest releases, and has been for some time. Because of this, I’m still using JBW version 2.5.3pre3-2-g03a9bc3. I’m on Linux Mint 17.3 with Cinnamon DE (and loving it!).

The new feature I would like to see is the ability to vary the amount bid for each element in a multi-snipe. Imagine you really want a Widget from the early 20th century, and there are two available on eBay right now from different sellers. You only want one of these expensive widgets. One of them from seller A has really good photos showing what fine condition it is in, and it is a very good maker. The other from seller B has one fuzzy photo, and the maker is not named. You know that this would probably do, but you would rather have the other one, to the extent that you would pay double to secure that one. However, it will probably sell for more than you are going to bid, but you might just get lucky.

In this situation, you set up a multi-snipe. It doesn’t matter which comes up first, you will bid on both and the other snipe will cancel if you win the first. Both are entered at X dollars, and then you go to one and change the value to Y dollars. Now you are multi-sniping, but with two different values.

Can this be done please? (Once multi-sniping is working again).

Greetings,
Nah; I’m still alive. Exhausted, and brain-burnt, but I’m alive. It’s been a rough patch for my coding efforts, starting in late January with my 10th anniversary, and valentines day, and stuff like that… A wonderful thing, but it does put a dent in my programming time. :)

I’ve got a good bit of feedback on 2.99pre5, I just need to dig through it and figure out what I absolutely need to fix. :)

I’m having the same problem. Two computers running Windows 7. One with IE the other with Firefox. Initially I got the circle with line reject Icon when dragging a URL. Restarting JBW I now get the “accept” icon, but the auction doesn’t get added. Adding it manually does work.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / 2.99pre4 won't start, dies at "Starting scripts"

OK. So JBidwatcher 2.99pre5 is now installed in my downloads directory, and runs from the terminal simply. If I now accept that it lives there, how do I change the launching script in /usr/local/bin/jbidwatcher to make that version run? Currently it opens the old version I still have.
Thanks for any help.

@bushytails. Thanks for that, that worked fine only now I’ve lost where it was installed, so my starting script still starts 2.5.3pre3 I had the new one running, I’ll have to go find it . . .

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / 2.99pre4 won't start, dies at "Starting scripts"

Now then. I’ve very little (and old) C experience, and zilch with Java, so I’m struggling here. I’ve installed JBidwatcher 2.99pre5 which would not run at all, and then discovered that I needed Java 8, so I’ve installed that. I now get the stall at “Starting scripts”. Since I did this the wrong way around, do I now need to uninstall JBw and then re install, or try the ‘long command’ above?
I’m running Linux Mint 7.3 with Cinnamon, and have long since avoided the command line as much as possible, so this is getting painful to my old brain :-)
Can anyone help me out here, or should I go back to 2.5.3pre3 which is the last one which worked for me?

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Tips and Tricks / Bring back Multisniping (2.5.5)

Gixen is able to do this. I really miss the jBidWatcher GUI for it though.

Can’t we just code jBidWatcher to do some test checks or the fist bid attempt in a multi, and if it can’t determine the winner it will just cancel all other bids in the multi?

Make sure you’re using the latest Oracle java. It won’t run on OpenJDK, which is what debian includes by default. java -version will tell you what you’re using.
