Fixed "rate me too" notifications, and a bug using multiple media dirs.

Postby mjo » 2006.02.28 10:41

having already done

Code: Select all

java -jar fairdj.jar -install


with an older version results in

Code: Select all

C:\tmp\fairdj>java -jar FairDJ_0.2.3\fairdj.jar -install
2006-02-28 09:37:48,285 [Main Thread    ] INFO            net.sf.fairdj.FairDj: Fair DJ is exiting due to install command. Settings file location should be on the previous line.

C:\tmp\fairdj>


We maybe should support rebuilding a new settings file. While at it, option to inform where to create settings file?

Setting ratings path to non-existent folder gives exception

Postby mjo » 2006.02.28 10:48

I set the following in settings.xml:

Code: Select all

<mediadir>d:\mp3</mediadir>
<ratingsdir>ratings</ratingsdir>


where the folder ratings does not exist. This results in

Code: Select all

C:\tmp\fairdj>java -jar FairDJ_0.2.3\fairdj.jar -settings settings.xml

I suggest deafult action is to create folder and move on.

Doing

Code: Select all

java -jar fairdj.jar -help install


yields:

Code: Select all

Usage: install
  Will really just exit Fair DJ after the default initialization,
  which includes setting up the default settings file, if no such file exists.


That is, the settings file will only be overwritten if no such file already exists. Now, I agree that it would be better backup the file if one already exists if one uses the install command. I will add this feature to the next version.

I was going to report...

Postby mjo » 2006.02.28 10:53

...that FairDJ could not create a user db from scratch (could not 0.2.2) but that has been fixed - nice! :-)
