Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMODEVTOOLS-325) "Download and Install" button should be disabled/enabled appropriately
Date Tue, 05 Aug 2008 21:00:44 GMT


Tim McConnell commented on GERONIMODEVTOOLS-325:

HI Ashish, thanks for working on this and you seem to be getting much closer. There are still
a couple small problems though:

1. When using the "Download and Install" button, it forces me to browse to a location whereas
before it used to allow me to enter a directory of my choice manually. It's probably better
to allow both manual entry and the usage of the Browse button and let the user decide which
they would like to do. 
2. It's a bit confusing having one variable named installDir (with uppercase 'D') and another
one named installdir (with lowercase 'd')
3. After the "Download and Install" button is clicked, the GEP does in fact download the zip
file for the server. It should then populate the installation directory text field so that
the "Next" or "Finish" button can be immediately clicked. As it is now with your patch, it
forces the user to Browse to the installation directory, which is not what we want.

> After selecting which server I want to use, the "Application Server Installation Directory"
field is blank and the "Download and Install" button is enabled.  Hitting this button does
nothing -1) it should be disabled on the page when the page is first shown.
> If I enter a directory that does not exist, a message shows at the top of the dialog
saying "The specified directory does not exist".  2) the button should be disabled when that
message appears and enabled when one of the "download allowable" messages appears (there seem
to be several).
> 3) Also, in stead of disabling for 2), it would be slightly more usable to allow the
user to click the "Download and Install" button and then ask the user if they wanted to create
that directory.
