Topic: Has ebay broke it? (19 July 07)

I just tried the jar version that Hans posted earlier and it works fine on my computer running Vista Basic. At least so far anyway. At least I can add auctions and update them. Havent tried any snipes or bids at this point.

Hans

I just downloaded the new 1.5.0.6 version you released and it seems to work. I’m running OSX10.4.10 with the latest software downloads.

Thanks

Solution for MAC ? (and other pre-1.6 Java versions?)

one of my machines was still running Java 1.5, to be exact it is
“java version “1.5.0_06”

So I rebuilt the .jar and it’s available here: http://tinyurl.com/2vpbrq

PLEASE: Can someone verify this, maybe even on a MAC, so other people know it works?
And add instrucions for MACians on how to use it?

Thanks, Hans

Hi Jaz,

you are right, in this case Java 1.6 was chosen just because “it’s there”. But things like that
always hapen with a solution that is called “a hack”.

The objective was to get a working solution ASAP, not to get a solution that works everywhere;
that will be done in an official release version.

A little hint from my side to you and all the people that would like to have this quick
fix working on there special environment:

- download a Java JDK version for your operation system from java.sun.com, it’s as complicated
as downloading the runtime-Java ;-)

- download the source code of the wonderful jbidwatcher, unpack it

- apply the patch I offered

- recompile the .jar file. This is done as easy as saying “make jar” on the command line

- share your success story on http://forum.jbidwatcher.com/

- you may even offer your .jar file online so other people can benefit from your work

What’ya think? Hans

As an FYI it appears for OSX:

“Platform Standard Edition 5.0 on Mac OS X v10.4.5 and later.

This release includes J2SE version 1.5.0_06. With this update J2SE 5.0 becomes the preferred Java version, superseding Java 1.4.2."

Hi Morgan,

thanks for your quick action on this topic. It’s a major work to get a new version out that satisfies everybody on every OS.
The solution I offered earlier was just to keep things up and running for some people (including me ;-) )

I’ll add two more posts here in reply to others that might help more people in using my temporary hack version.

Anyway I would like to thank you, Morgan, for your excellent work! I love to use jbidwatcher and I’m happy if I can be
of any help in this situation.

BR Hans

Greetings,

The basic explanation is that the compiled Java contains a reference (the bytecode version, to be specific) to the version number that it was built on. I do my builds on a Java 1.4.2 setup, so it’s compatible with anything after that, which should be everybody’s.

For folks keeping up with the current version of the Java Development Kit, they’ll have Java 6 installed, and so the code they build will require Java 6, even if it’s not using any Java 6 features.

I fall back to the most general version that I can reasonably use; although I think even my builds may require Java 5 (but not Java 6) soon. But that’ll be the ‘Next Major Version’, whatever I call it.

Greetings,

Unfortunately Mac OS X doesn’t have a Java 6 version yet, at least outside of the ‘early access’ area. Generally Apple does major JRE updates with major OS updates, so Java 6 might not ever be available with the current rev of OSX. :(

Anyhow, I’m trying to get through the email that I’ve gotten so far, and get a general multi-platform build together.

Will compiled Windows .exe, whenever is gets released, require 1.6? (I have A LOT of stuff running that relies on java, and so I can’t update JRE 1.5 to JDK 1.6 latest just for jbidwatcher.)
I’m hoping it doesn’t, cuz I really like this app. If not, then I have to ask — and I hope this doesn’t sound whiney — why JDK 1.6? is there something in 1.6 that you really need? Are you compiling with 1.6 JDK just because it’s there? I mean, what ever happened to least-common-denominator? ;)

Mine seems to be working with sun-java 1.5.0.11 – but I built my own from Hans’ patch. linux 2.6.20-gentoo patches

I haven’t sniped anything yet, but i can update from either internal searches or My Ebay watching list. I’ve set some snipes – its just a few hours away …

I’m afraid that java 1.6 will break things – I’m waiting for more adventurous gentooers to take the plunge.

Thanks,
Craig

Topic: Has ebay broke it? (19 July 07)

Hi mikethebike and all,

although I did do some downloading before, I’m confused of all the different JAVA, JRM, J2EE and you know what versions they offer there as well.
So here’s a (hopefully) simple recipe to get you your latest Java version:

go to java.sun.com

click on “Downloads” at the top

select the “Java SE” branch (click on the “+”)

choose “Java SE (JDK) 6 Download”

in the upcoming list, scroll down to “Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 2”
and click on the Download button

choose your operating system in the list, there’s Linux, Solaris and Windows to choose from
don’t forget to select the “Accept” radio-button at the top

—> I’m not a Mac guy, can someone please add info for the Apple-people?

Download the binary/exe, then install it

now you should be able to run the “hacked” .jar just by clicking on it in your file-browser.

HTH, Hans

Topic: Has ebay broke it? (19 July 07)

ok everybody, here’s the one really important step you have to do if you want to run the “hacked” .jar:

you have to download the latest JAVA from java.sun.com

if you don’t download the latest java, you will run into errors, no matter what operating system!

go to java.sun.com and download Java™ SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 2

Good luck, Hans

Same error. Note that I don’t have any trouble with 1.0.1 — when I download JBidWatcher-1.0.1.jar, I can start it fine by either saving it and double clicking, run it directly from the download, or by the command above.

Greetings,

Nice! I haven’t had time to read through the whole thread, but I have a preliminary fix in CVS for folks who want to try that…

But I’m REALLY happy to see folks helping each other, and getting it up and working. Thank you Hans, and everybody!

I’ll get back on here when I can; unfortunately I’m already late for my day job… :)

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

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.

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

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

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 &lt; ../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:
