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

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.

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

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…

… 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?

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 …

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

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.

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…
