I've hopefully fixed the issue in the 1.3.1 branch.

subjectHasPrivilegeView.jsp depended on params and privMap being passed from a higher level tile. This was not working for some reason with JDK 1.6 which used to give an error. The error stopped happening with v1.6 of subjectHasPrivilegeView.jsp as a jsp:useBean tag ensured params was always available - if empty, however, it did not address the underlying problem.

I have worked around the issue - params -> linkParams and privMap is now shifted to the SubjectAsMap instance that is passed. This works for JDK 1.5 and 1.6.

I don't know what was going on. There seems to be an issue passing some attributes to a dynamic tile but if there is a systemic problem I would have expected to have problems elsewhere.

There has been a UI issue with Java 1.6 - reported by at least two
people. An error occurred when clicking on a 'is direct member' link:
'/WEB-INF/jsp/subjectHasPrivilegeView.jsp': Cannot find bean params in
any scope.

I've just tried reproducing that with my build of 1.3.1 using an old and
a new Java 1.6 version - but can't.

Scott: I would assume that OpenJDK 1.6 will work - and if you find there
is a UI problem we'll work with you to resolve it

Gary, doesn't grouper or grouper-ui have issues with java 1.6? I
couldn't find a jira issue about this, if it is still a problem should we
add a jira issue (if its not already there)?

I have no qualms, especially if the unit tests work ("ant test"), and if
the UI works :)

In the meantime (and depending on Gary's response), Java 1.5 is a safer

Subject: [grouper-users] Grouper and OpenJDK?


Has anyone tried using Grouper on top of the OpenJDK that
comes with Cent OS 5?

~]# java -version
java version "1.6.0_0"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_0-b11)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.6.0_0-b11, mixed mode)

Do the Grouper developers have any qualms about deploying
Grouper on top of the JVM?

I am trying to make the deployment of Grouper for our
organization as simple as possible and part of that is trying
to leverage software that can easily be installed on the
system using native packaging.
