Description Thomas Fitzsimmons 2007-04-17 20:51:09 UTC
The attached test case throws an UnsupportedOperationException.  Mylar tries to
use this to create an unbound Socket.  For Fedora 7, we can likely patch Mylar
to work around this problem, but this method should be completed.

Comment 2 Tom Tromey 2007-04-18 00:02:54 UTC
I tried this on the JDK on to-gcj-1 and got:

to-gcj-1. /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun- TestSocket
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalStateException: SSLContextImpl is
not initialized
        at TestSocket.main(

I'm not sure whether or not this is expected.
The javadoc seems unclear on what should happen in this case.
It is easy enough for us to make an SSLSocket but it is unclear what,
if anything, you can do with it... how does Mylar use this socket
once it has created it?

I checked Casey's fix in on the RH 4.1 branch.

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-04-04 00:08:16 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here: to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2008-05-07 01:30:19 UTC
This bug has been in NEEDINFO for more than 30 days since feedback was
first requested. As a result we are closing it.

If you can reproduce this bug in the future against a maintained Fedora
version please feel free to reopen it against that version.
