Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMODEVTOOLS-522) Feature.properties has a trailing backslash in it

Feature.properties has a trailing backslash in it
-------------------------------------------------

                 Key: GERONIMODEVTOOLS-522
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMODEVTOOLS-522
             Project: Geronimo-Devtools
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: eclipse-plugin
    Affects Versions: 2.1.3
            Reporter: Charles Overbeck
            Assignee: Tim McConnell


The feature.properties on the update site bundled with org.apache.geronimo.v21.feature_2.1.3.jar
has a trailing backslash in it. The last two lines of the file are this:

trial in any resulting litigation. \n\
\n\ 

Note the trailing slash at the end of the second line; no characters follow it. 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.

In any case, that's why I'm proposing a priority of Major for this seeming trivial bug.
