Jar task can create mysteriously broken jar files in 1.5.1, 1.6.2





------- Additional Comments From jonabbey@ganymeta.org  2004-07-27 02:20 -------
At this point, I can't identify what might be significantly different between
the two jar files attached above.  Other jar files produced by Ant 1.6.2 on my
Solaris system do work properly on the browsers I've tested.. even the bad jar
file attached will work properly, if I use the Jar file with Java Web Start or
directly with Appletviewer.. but if I try running it with any of the following
browser/OS/JDK combinations it fails..

Safari - Mac OS X 10.3.4 - JDK 1.4.1
Firefox - Fedora Core 2 - JDK 1.4.2_05
Firefox - Fedora Core 2 - JDK 1.5.0 beta 2
Firefox - Windows 2000 - JDK 1.5.0 beta 2
IE 6 - Windows 2000 - JDK 1.5.0 beta 2

Clearly there is something in the jar file generated by Ant which tickles an
edge case in these JDK's.. but only when they are trying to launch an applet
from the jar file on a web server through a web browser, seemingly.

Hair pullingly mysterious.

It should be possible to verify this test case by putting the HTML file in
comment 3 onto a web server along with the two versions of ganymede.jar from
the attachments.. the one marked bad should report a failure to load
arlut.csd.ganymede.client.glogin, and the one marked good should not.. (though
even on success the one marked good will indicate an exception trying to
connect to our internal RMI server mentioned in the applet parameter.)
