Re: Synchronize View Problems

Panagiotis,

Thanks for the reply. Is this anything you have any time available to look
into? If not, we will just have to find some time but it might be a while.

One of our testers found a couple of other problems that perhaps you can
shed some light on (we haven't look at them in depth yet).

1) We authenticate against Windows and the user had changed their AD
password. When they run Synch, it just gives an error about not being able
to do it. We finally figured out that it was their password. I do not
know if the implementation of status in JavaHL just doesn't handle this as
well as say update and commit, or if the Synch framework just doesn't
report the error well. We quickly tried to replicate the problem last
night but couldn't. Update and Commit would fail, but Synch would work!
Somehow, status must have been using a cache or a cached password. I think
this was just an anomaly, the main issue I think is just in reporting the
error better. There wasn't even anything in the console (which make me
think it is a JavaHL/ClientAdapter issue.

2) The tester turned on the feature that shows the Revision numbers in the
Synch view. He observed that remote resources always were showing the HEAD
revision, as opposed to the last revision they were changed. This is
confusing. Say you have a file at r50 in your WC, and it is r100 in
repository. Synch view shows r200 when you are synching. After you do a
merge, and update your WC shows r100 (correctly). This just confused the
tester since they had observed the r200 in the Synch view. Where does the
revision come from, and how can we make it show the file's last changed
revision?

Thanks

Mark
