GLI collect home handling

Reported by: ak19 Owned by: nobody
Priority: moderate Milestone: 2.87 Release
Component: GLI Severity: major

Description

It can get confusing when you've installed a GS and had a collection open in its GLI and then install another GS and then ran GLI and it opened the collection in the old GS installation.

Kathy came up with the following solution:

* GLI's config.xml needs to remember GLI home If you open GLI and config.xml records a different GLI home had been using the config file, check if the library url is the correc tone for the new GS installation. Else clear config.xml's library_url, general_site_name and general_servlet_path. open_collection too?

Bugs found:

server.exe can't properly handle changing gsdlhome and does not respond to changing collecthome from within GLI.

Change History

Dr Bainbridge has another suggestion to do with collect home:

Have a recently opened (or recent previous) collect folder.

Maybe support for this is there in Java's file browser.
