Re: FW: Problem with DumpType


Thanks for fixing this.

Ken --  I have a Windows machine and use 'nmake' all the time to rebuilt VisAD:
from the c:\src\visad directory:  "nmake -f makefile.winnt compile"

Some time ago, there was a volunteer to create an 'ant' build file for
visad, but I've not heard back from them.

I'll be doing a VisAD release either late this week or early next --
I'm just back from a 3 week holiday on the other side of the planet
and not fully recovered ;-)

Indeed. I have committed a fix to in CVS. There will be a new
release of VisAD at some point, but probably easiest until then is to
prepend a folder for modifications to your CLASSPATH. For example, you could
set the CLASSPATH to "C:\java;C:\java\visad.jar;." which would look for
class files beneath the C:\java directory structure before resorting to
pulling stuff from visad.jar. This way, you can make a C:\java\visad\jmet
folder and have in there, with the fix, and continue
developing your application.

I have made the fixed temporarily available from:

I do not know Eclipse, but am familiar with building VisAD from the command
line on Windows and Linux. If you continue to have problems or questions,
ask away.
