Subject [jira] Created: (FOR-581) Toolbar icons not found if tool is installed in user config dir
Date Wed, 20 Jul 2005 09:39:45 GMT
Toolbar icons not found if tool is installed in user config dir
---------------------------------------------------------------

         Key: FOR-581
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOR-581
     Project: Forrest
        Type: Improvement
  Components: Tool: XXE config  
    Versions: 0.8-dev    
    Reporter: Sjur N. Moshagen
    Priority: Minor


The XXE tool is referencing several icons in the XXE distribution in a way that requires the
tool to be installed within the application directory structure.

As of version 2.10 (or was it 2.9p1?), the user config dir is a replica of the application
config dir, and is scanned upon application startup. This makes it natural to install the
forrest XXE tool in the user space, to avoid having to reinstall it each time XXE is updated.

Because the icon references are relative to the installation dir of XXE (and assuming that
the tool is installed at a certain directory depth within it), it is presently not possible
to install the tool in the XXE user config area. The tool initialisation will crash, which
again will turn off the tool.

A simple solution would be to just copy the icons into the forreset tool, but I have been
unable to find any license text or any other description on whether that would be acceptable.

Another solution would be to enhance the URI of the icons with a reference to the installation
directory, but I don't know whether there exists a mechanism that would allow the necessary
platform independence and flexibility.
