Subject Re: Finding Service Registrars on Linux
Date Tue, 06 Oct 2009 17:41:11 GMT
Sort of solved...

Life just gets more weird.  Which I suppose makes it interesting.  I'm  
currently laying the blame for this on Eclipse Galileo.

As mentioned, when run in Eclipse the code seems to hang on the line;


Eclipse thinks that the process is still running (at least that's what it  
tells me) but nothing happens and there's no output in any log that I can  

netstat claims that the right sockets are open;

	tcp        0      0 :::4160                 :::*                    LISTEN
	tcp        0      0 :::8080                 :::*                    LISTEN

However, dropping to the command line and executing the same Java it all  
works as expected.

Eclipse isn't missing a policy file, that was the first thing I checked.   
So I'm at a loss to explain what is different in the IDE compared to  
what's different on the command line.

Thanks to Gregg for writing enough pointers down to give me the idea of  
trying it somewhere else.

Gah!  This has cost me at least 2 months of motivation to working on those  
tutorials!  I knew I should never have the left the safety of the command  
line and vi.

Just what is Eclipse doing and how do I find out?
