Ashish Jain commented on GERONIMODEVTOOLS-325:
----------------------------------------------

Hi BJ, Thanks for your comments. Not sure why you got the compilation error. However just
wanted to explain more on this fix. The idea about this fix was to segregate "Download and
Install" from "Specify An Existing Application Server Installation Directory" text box. That
is why there are two DirectoryDialog 
1) For an existing geronimo installation.
2) For a new installation directory.

"1) type in C:\f\geronimo-tomcat6-javaee5-2.1.1 in the entry field and click "download and
install" since it looks enabled (nothing happens)".  failed because you need to give a valid
directory.

However I guess this patch may still confuse users. I will go ahead and modify the patch and
upload an updated one soon.

> 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.
