Mine has stopped updating any auctions since… now :(

When I try to add auction, I get invalid auction/communication error talking to server QQ

 
Avatar kliere 11 post(s)

Yep, here too – just couple of minutes ago. Simply stopped updating, and does neither sync with My eBay nor does it allow adding auctions by hand :-(.

Darn…

HACK, not a solution:

ebay stopped using the word “ebay” in the title of auctions. This broke some title-check-code
inside jbidwatcher. A quick workaround for this is to eliminate the title check, sniping will work
without it as well. (I have to figure out why we need this check in jbidwatcher at all)

To do so, just change the “return false” at the end of checkTitle() in file ebayServer.java to say
“return true” (around line No. 1930)

Please note again: This is just a hack to save your snipes today, until 1.0.2 (or somthing) is out.
You will not be able to add new auctions, there are more changes needed for that.

I’m using jbidwatcher on Mac OS X – where would I find the ebayServer.java file to make that hack please?

I’ve got the same Problems with adding auctions on ebay.de .

 
Avatar cregist 7 post(s)

I’ve got the jbidwatcher-1.0.1.tar.gz file and I can’t find a ebayServer.java file.

ETA: OK if you actually look in the top directory, you will find …

Same problem but cant read the reply in last post – endswith “you will find…”

 
Avatar cregist 7 post(s)

… that the file you were looking for really is in the top level directory of the source tarball.

After making the change Hans posted, I can add auctions from the ebay search inside jbidwatcher, but anything added to myebay in the normal manner is not found by jbidwatcher.

Also, auctions previously listed still have the red-eye; but. new auctions don’t

I haven’t had anything come up that I want to snipe yet; however, I made a low bid on something I am watching and the bid went through.

Why is jbidwatcher flagged as a misspelled word?

 
Avatar stabo 4 post(s)

Same problem for me.

I can neither add an objet nor get my ebay items. But I tryed to bid with jBidWatcher (to see if snipe would work) and it worked.

May this help to solve…

RE Hans’ fix: Can’t find file ebayServer.java on my winxp system. Is there a different file name where I can look, or a location? Thanks

 
Avatar Martin Bürkel 18 post(s)

Hans, how can i compile the fixed sourcecode on a mac?
Hope you can explain this in a short sentence, els i have to wait on 1.02

 
Avatar Hans 12 post(s)

Hi again,

the quick hack earlier today was just a fix for the smaller problem. The bigger problem of adding new auctions needed some more work. Reason: ebay changed the title of the auctions from “ebay.*: (item) (No.) (end-date)” to just “(item)”. The information for the end-date was read from the title-info until today.
Again I’ve made some source-code changes to jbidwatcher, the end-date is read from the HTML now. I sent a mail to Morgan so he can include them into a new
version.
Until the new version is out, you can get the patch file agains 1.0.1 from http://tinyurl.com/35u3kt
Note: You need to download the sourcecode and compile jbidwatcher for yourself to use the patch file.

For people without a compiler, the new hack-jar file can be found at http://tinyurl.com/3dvkf8.

AGAIN, please note this is a quick fix, not a fully tested version. You can add auctions now, bidding works, sniping should work. If you say “update auction” on red-eye auctions, the red-eye should be gone.

Please give it a try and report problems here. Thanks.

one more thing: I’ve tested the .jar on Linux only, no idea if it works on Mac and the other operating system as well ;-)

Hans,

Okay, I’m too stupid to figure out how to apply the patch.

ginger ~ # mkdir temp
ginger ~ # cd temp
ginger temp # tar xfz ../jbidwatcher-1.0.1.tar.gz 
tar: A lone zero block at 4564
ginger temp # patch -p0 < ../jbidwatcher-1.0.1.1.patch 
can't find file to patch at input line 2
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:
--------------------------
|diff -r -w jbidwatcher-1.0.1/AuctionServer.java jbidwatcher-1.0.1.1/AuctionServer.java
--------------------------
File to patch: 

What am I not doing?

and using your new .jar file:

ETA: so i tried to fix the formatting – this is what I got

Safari , panther won’t open java fix. Where is the other non- geek patch? I think it said it could be
applied without the console (I’m not hep to the console route), help?

 
Avatar Hans 12 post(s)

For the source-code/patch guys: I’ve udated the patch file to be a context-diff, patch will like it more now. Just do a patch -p0 < jbidwatcher-1.0.1.1.patch
It works here, so give it a try.

For the .jdk people: Unlike most other times I used a quite new java version, it says
java version “1.6.0_02”
here.
Please go to java.sun.com and download the latest version for your favorite OS.
Maybe someone else wants to post other java version .jdks here?

..Hans

Hans,

> one more thing: I’ve tested the .jar on Linux only, no idea if it works on Mac and the other operating system as well ;-)

The hacked .jar won’t open on Windows either. Error from Java Virtual Machine Launcher: “Could not find the main class.”

I’m using WinXP while my linux box is down and just double clicking on the patched jar file works here. Also jbidwatcher works with newer items, but I have some that are 20+ day links from the seller, and those will not refresh now. I need to search and see if I can re-add them.

 
Avatar stabo 4 post(s)

It works well with me in WinXP. Thank you Hans.

on winXP, for avoiding Error from Java Virtual Machine Launcher: “Could not find the main class.”, use the following command :

C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_02\bin\javaw.exe -jar jbidwatcher.jar

Regards

Stabo
