Subject [jira] Resolved: (GERONIMODEVTOOLS-522) has a trailing backslash in it
Date Tue, 07 Oct 2008 18:40:44 GMT


Ted Kirby resolved GERONIMODEVTOOLS-522.

       Resolution: Fixed
    Fix Version/s: 2.1.4
         Assignee: Ted Kirby  (was: Tim McConnell)

It looks like we can't redo a released artifact.  We will do a 214 release, and I added this
fix to it in rev 702578.

has a trailing backslash in it. The last two lines of the file are this:

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.
