Description Brian G. Anderson 2005-04-20 15:30:50 UTC
Description of problem:
I am trying to invoke an external ant task (using 'Run->External tools...'). 
When setting it up I go to the 'JRE' tab and select the 'Seperate JRE' button I
always get a 'JRE not specified' error at the top of the dialog.  Now
'java-1.4.2-gcj-1.4.20' is offered as a default (which also passes muster when
adding installed JRE's from the window->preferences screen), but the error never
goes away.  I tried installing Sun's Java and got the same error message.  It
only seems to accept 'run from same virtual machine'

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. see above
Actual results:
error message about no JRE select

Expected results:
accept external JRE

I can't seem to duplicate this.  If the error is happening with Sun's JVM as
well, then it's probably an upstream bug.

Can you provide a more detailed test case?

If this happens again, please reopen.
