Topic: [Release] JBidwatcher 2.0 is out!

No problem getting my watched items, but it won’t get my “selling” items. Any clues? On a Mac with latest OS and JBidwatcher 2.0.1-825

Topic: [Release] JBidwatcher 2.0 is out!

also have the problem with selling items here. it doesn’t work and using ‘get my ebay items’ doesn’t get the selling items neither.
using the search with the option by seller with my name works tho.

i’m using 2.0.1 on osx 10.5.6 with the latest java update from apple and my ebay account is a german one.

keep up the great app!

Topic: [Release] JBidwatcher 2.0 is out!

I regularly have the same problem as robrub: “Cannot add auction XXXX, it is already in your auction list”.
It seems to happen sometimes with this version as well as earlier versions.
Whenever my network at home is troublesome (wireless conditions e.g.), the article takes quite a while to appear in the list.
When I exit JBidwatcher and return, the article is not visible. Not in the current and not in the complete list.
It seems to exist in the auction.xml. Also I see a .jpg in the auctionsave folder.
What makes it worse is that there does not seem to be a way to remove the non-visible article. Perhaps a “delete by number” can be build into the program to cleanup all remaining stuff in order to allow adding it again. Or better a “refresh” function that recovers this situation?

A piece of my log:

Topic: [Release] JBidwatcher 2.0 is out!

As recommended I upgraded to 2.0.1 (2.0.1-825) when it was released.

However I have encountered one new problem, twice now, I have come back to JBidwatcher and found every auction in my current list has had a bid (or snipe) of £1.00 placed on it. I am based in the UK which is why it is in Pounds, I suspect if I was in the Eurozone I would return and find it had placed bids for €1.00 (one Euro).

If they are snipes then it will not let me cancel them.

I normally leave JBidwatcher running by itself so I can periodically look at the list of auctions I am monitoring and of course so it can Snipe for auctions if I choose.

I am running JBidwatcher on a PowerMac G4 running Mac OS X 10.4.11.

Quitting and relaunching and letting it refresh all the auctions does not change this. So far all the auctions had already exceeded £1.00 in value prior to JBidwatcher making this error meaning I have not been stuck with items I did not want.

During the time I was running version 2.0 this did not occur.

Lightning fast loading of the data
Seems to work where 2.0 did not for me
Fingers crossed

Thanks Morgan

I can confirm that the 99% CPU issue is also occurring under Mac OS X 10.5.6 with all updates applied. No accurate timings are available for the program to open…. I’ve just left it an hour and it has been loaded on my return.

I’ll revert to beta 11 pending Morgan’s further investigations.

I have the same problems on Linux and have also a very, very large old database.
Morgan is working on the problem, I have send it my debugs logs and, this morning, give it all my “monstrous” .jibidwatcher directory (607Mo!).

Already he has found some SQL problems.

Just a little patience ;-)

Topic: [Release] JBidwatcher 2.0 is out!

Hi Morgan
I installed 2 because of the only 10 items listed in JBid also hoping it would load faster
I have more problems
Jbid has now become unusable
:-(
Load time is in hours I guess, don’t know as I load it at work then go home. It’s there by morning.
Only 10 expired items showing, no others when I ask it to update
It slows the pc down horribly, XP Home SP3
To get around that I thought I would open my complete items and delete a load of the 4000 odd items
Just sat there for around an hour “Importing the database” (or similar) in the oragne bar near the top
As the pc is sufferring so badly on speed and I’m trying to work I closed it
Best way forward please ?
I guess go back to Beta11 and delete a lot of completed items ?
Thanks
Mike

Hello Morgan,

Its done, sent to your email address (Top result : 99% CPU used by Java/Jbidwatcher, error.23.log and derby.log).

Ask if you need more or to do some tests/debugs.

Hope this help.

Many thanks for your job.

Hello Morgan,

Bouuuu :-(

This version is absolutely unusable for me :-(

Hours for “importing complete listing” in the Derby IBM/Apache database (more bad than sqllite :-( )

All my computers are kneeling in front the “God” Jbidwatcher ;-) (XXX per cent CPU always used by Jbid).

And so on :-(

PS : working with Ubuntu Intrepid, using : “java version 1.6.0_10”

Great program! Haven’t had any problems — until 2.0. I’m experiencing the same problems mentioned above with slow open/close and incomplete lists running on Windows 7 with latest Java. 2.0 seems to work fine when installed into a virgin directory, but chokes when installed into a directory with a database created by a prior release (beta11 still loads the database without any trouble).

Topic: [Release] JBidwatcher 2.0 is out!

Hi Morgan –
Just ran 2.0 from the executable file. (Windows XP Pro SP2) Incredibly slow to open, just over 10 minutes. While opening and afterwards, it was pulling 100% CPU on a reasonably powerful dual-core system and notably degrading other programs. It did ultimately access all watched items, however the system was unusable for anything else. Shutdown was just as delayed. Second try, similar issues and similar errorfile produced. details below. I’m back on beta11 – that only took 66 seconds to open and left my CPU in peace.

Hi Morgan,

Thanks for all you do with JBidWatcher! Note: I’ve installed 2.0, didn’t work, re-installed it, didn’t work. Installed 1.0.2pre5 again, didn’t work previously, now it works like a charm. Go figure. 2.0 doesn’t load auctions, loses its menus-have to quit and start again. I’m running MacOSX Leopard. -Dave

Topic: [Release] JBidwatcher 2.0 is out!

Hi,

I’m running XPpro, SP3, and have just upgraded to JBW V2.0

I have hit a similar problem to robrub – before I upgraded I had put some new auctions in – after I upgraded these were not visible and I could not re-insert them – the error message was that they were already on the list.

I tried rebooting but could not get them back. Eventually I had to uninstall Jbid, manually delete (actually rename) all files remaining, then reinstall as clean and re-input all my auctions. Of course that means I lose all my “complete” auction data.

Morgan – can you indicate which files the ‘complete’ data is stored in? I copied this – maybe I can get it back. I looked to see if there was an ‘export/import’ feature for backing up, but I couldn’t find one. There is an ‘auction save’, but I don’t know what that is, and an ‘export’ under ‘Tab’, but I don’t know what that does either…:(

Win2K, all patches, beta11 worked fine (reverted to using that now).

I used the Windows Installer version for the release V2 with a common install (all defaults taken), and javaw.exe spins with 99% of cpu. Had to kill it with task manager after a few minutes… tried several times – always fails to start up (leaves logo on screen – progress bar empty). Reverting to beta 11 and all is well again…

Hi Morgan.

Tnx for looking into the problem. BTW, I reinstalled Beta11 and I have all my items back.

FYI, the instal of 2.0 was done under “common” (when all users can acces JBidW). I don’t know if this may be a problem.

Regards.

Hi Morgan,
In fact the previous last beta 2.0 (I forgot 10 or 11) did the job.
How can I reload an older version?

Hi Morgan,
I have configured Ebay with all items (42), no change. It just shows the first 7 items of my Ebay list.
Strange is that it shows the first 6 items from a whole list of more than 20 from the same seller (same name, same type of product, same country, accept Paypal…). Why is it ignoring the rest of the list?
I don’t know if its my computer or has anyone else such a problem?
Thanks Morgan

Good morning Morgan. I have been using Jbidwatcher for some time, it’s really great.
I have downloaded the latest 2.0 version and I am having problems (running under Vista, Java 1.6)
It’s extremely slow to open and just show the first 6 items on my Ebay list, all the other 20 are not displayed. Sad, I won’t be able to bid tonight. Any reason for this?
Thanks again for the good work, Roger

Hi Morgan.

When I installed 2.0 on the latest Beta, all my watch items disappeared from JBidW :( And, when I try to add the items, I get a message that the item that I want to add is already on my watch list.

TIa for your help.
