Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMODEVTOOLS-522) has a trailing backslash in it
Date Fri, 03 Oct 2008 23:55:44 GMT


Ted Kirby commented on GERONIMODEVTOOLS-522:

Thanks for bug report.  I fixed it in trunk with rev 701571.  We would like to work better
in p2, and have had some issues with it.

I don't know if we will do a 2.1.4.  Currently trunk is targeted to 2.2.

I wonder if we could or should fix this in 2.1.3 and put new artifacts on our eclipse plugin
update site?

may not sound like a terrible bug on its own, but because that content ends up getting expanded
inside the feature.xml, I think it escapes the next character in the feature.xml, which in
this case is the "<" which closes a tag. This leads to an incorrectly generated content.xml
file if you are generating an update site using Eclipse's P2 metadata generator, and you have
the Geronimo feature present when you are doing the metadata generation. I don't know if it
has any other side-effects.
