Description
Tested Build: j2sdk1.4.2-b28
Platform: Windows
Browser: IE

The 1.4.2-b28 JPI demos still have the wrong auto download cab URL

codebase = "http://java.sun.com/products/plugin/autodl/jinstall-1_4_2-windows-i586.cab#Version=1,4,2,0"

It should be: 
http://java.sun.com/update/1.4.2/jinstall-1_4_2-windows-i586.cab#Version=1,4,2,0

This change should have also been made to the 1.4.2 HtmlConverter as well.

Currently in 1.4.2-b28, HtmlConverter still generates incorrect auto download URL in converted 1.4.2 JPI demos

The fix was completed and verified in promoted 1.4.2_01- Build 02



###@###.### 2003-08-01

1.4.2_01-b02 HtmlConverter was updated with the correct auto download cab URL

This bug is verified in 1.4.2_01-Build 2

                                    

Comments
EVALUATION

This problem is caused by changes in autodl URL by web engineering in Mantis on the server side, and the changes have not been reflected into the HTMLConverter. 

In src/plugin/src/share/converter/sun/plugin/converter/engine/PluginConverter.java, the default autodl URL is 

"http://java.sun.com/products/plugin/autodl/jinstall-1_4_2-windows-i586.cab#Version=1,4,2,0"

instead of 

"http://java.sun.com/update/1.4.2/jinstall-1_4_2-windows-i586.cab#Version=1,4,2,0"

This is too late to fix in Mantis now. I would recommend we manually modify the demo page with the correct download URL at java.sun.com, and document this on the web, and fix the problem in 1.4.2_01.

This will be fixed in JRE 1.4.2_01.

if ( majorVersion > 1 || minorVersion > 4 || (minorVersion >= 4 && microVersion >= 1)) {
   urlString = "http://java.sun.com/update/" + version;
}
else {
     urlString = "http://java.sun.com/products/plugin/autodl";
}
