Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Fails to filter currency

JBidwatcher 2.0beta3 (on OS X) doesn’t limit my searches to the currency euros anymore. It grabs data from the dutch eBay.

Anybody else has this problem?

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Development / Heap space errors

I’m getting a considerable amount of the following in my logs when JBidwatcher has been running for a few hours:

Feb 25 15:26:26 CET 2008: Serious error, consider dying.

java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space[/quote]

I never saw JBidwatcher using more than ~110MB or so of RAM. So I dug around a little. According to the Java documentation from Apple the Info.plist Root/VMOptions should read -Xms64m -Xmx512m. Without the equal signs.

I’ll see if this change improves anything.

Comment Topic: Announcements / [PreRelease] JBidwatcher 1.0.3pre2

Today my JBidWatcher didn’t load the interface anymore (on OS X leaopard). It does load the bird, and the progressbar goes to 2/3’s. I get the following in Console.app:

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Development / Some usability bugs

1. It would be very nice if something would indicate that all auctions that were found with the search have been downloaded by the program. Currently I could start cleaning up the results on a tab and then still more results are pouring in. Please add a little icon on the tab that shows if there are multiple pending auctions downloading.

2. Basically all dialogs that want you to enter something have the focus on the [OK] button, but not on the input field. This is for example with “Set shipping rate”, but there are others. Please consider putting the focus on the input field.

3. It should remember the last currency used for a new search. For most products I’m only interested in the european market. Having lots of useless american results pouring in when I forget to set the currency is getting annoying

4. A ‘currency’ column on the results tab. To be able to clean up above mentioned problem. And to roughly asses shipping cost for items that don’t have all countries shipping attached to them.
