Description Martin Fong 2007-03-27 01:08:57 UTC
Actual problem is with libgcj-4.1.1 (which is _not_ listed as a component).
See for a complete
description as well as an exemplar Java test case.

Exemplar code

Run with "java XMLSetNodeValue".

Stack trace, system profile, and Java system properties.

Comment 3 Tom Tromey 2007-03-28 15:14:50 UTC
This works with the gcj that will be in F7.

Will a patch be released for FC6?  (In FC5, there was a bug in libgcj's regex
implementation that was never fixed and so we had to recommend/require that
users of our software install Sun's JVM when using FC5.  Unless FC6's libgcj is
fixed, we'll have to recommend the same for FC6.)

I just ran the exemplar code under FC7 (F-6.91-i386) and it failed with a
NullPointerException and produced the same stack trace I previously reported. 
When FC7 Test 3 is available, I'll re-run the test case.  However, I am unable
to confirm that this bug has been eliminated under FC7.

Comment 6 Tom Tromey 2007-03-30 20:47:47 UTC
I just tested rawhide and this is definitely fixed there.
For FC6, I don't know.  Are we still doing update for FC6?
Anyway it would depend on what the fix actually looks like
(I don't know :-)
