Summary: jEdit does not allow opening of Offline Files in Win2k
Since 4.2pre8, I have been unable to open Offline files in
Windows 2000 when not connected to a network. Jedit
opens the files correctly when the network is connected
and the files are online. The quirks that I notice is that
Jedit displays the file dates as 31/12/1969 with an
access of No Access. When looking in exporer - the
dates are correct and I can open the files without a
problem in another editor. Jedit 4.2pre7 worked fine
with offline files. Here are some stats about the
environment that I am working in.
OS: Windows 2000
Remote File Server: SAMBA running on HP/UX
Software Version: Jedit 4.2pre9
Java SDK: 1.4.2 AND 1.5.0 Beta 1 (Both exhibit same
The attached screenprint shows the file system browser
after an Open File command when the network is
disconnected. You can see the file dates and access
settings. One thing that I have noticed is that some
files ARE available but I have not yet figured out any
pattern. It does seem that any files I have been
editting recently are always in the No Access state.
When the network is connected and jEdit is running, the
file accesses do not change - even when I
refresh/reload the directory. I have to restart Jedit in
order to get access to the files.
