GLI client annoyingness with invalid gliserver.pl path

Reported by: kjdon Owned by: ak19
Priority: moderate Milestone: Next Release (2 or 3)
Component: GLI Severity: major
Keywords: Cc:


When you start up the GLI client, it tries to get lots of info from the server. If your path is wrong, it can't get the info, but it keeps trying all the other operations. You have to click ok/cancel on all the error popups. If you click cancel, it still keeps going. Can we get it to stop after one fail? Is there any point in keeping on going?

This is also a problem if you want to stop the client - if you click cancel at the first popup, it still carries on and does all the other ones.

Changed RemoteGreenstoneServer?.java to deal with Cancelled case and when the remote connection is refused (for instance because the gliserver path was invalid). Client-GLI now exits in these cases by calling Gatherer.exit(). See revision 15863 of gli/trunk/src/org/greenstone/gatherer/remote/RemoteGreenstoneServer.java
