Problem: Null pointer whenever launcher starts! Originator:DCS 2/15/99 Status: Closed, DCS, ADFlauncher V 1.6 Problem: OK button doesn't work in ServerDialog box, double-clicking does Originator: DCS 2/15/99 Status: Postponed, DCS Comment: This is a linux-only bug, Solaris and DEC UNIX to don't show it, so I'm assuming it's a JDK bug that will get fixed in a future update. Not our problem -DCS Problem: Open an editor on the initial FileAgent's Display, and you throw a Null Pointer. Doesn't occur on any other displays Originator: DCS 2/16/99 Status: Open, assigned to DCS Problem: NO DATABASE SERVERS ARE UP! Originator: Everybody 2/8/99 Status: In Progress, assigned to ND and DCS Problem: Agents lose buttons when regaining control of Displays. Must be a ButtonView bug! Originator: DCS 2/16/99 Status: Open Problem: Launcher doesn't update list of agents running on displays when release gets called on display. Originator: DCS 2/16/99 Status: Pending, will be fixed in ADFlauncher 1.7 Comment: Launcher can't detect release call -- changing protocols to have agent termination cause manager to notify launcher to update. Problem: Displays don't terminate when last agent assigned to them terminates. Originator: DCS 2/16/99 Status: Open Comment: Somehow the Display will have to notify the Display Manager, who can drop the reference to it, causing the launcher to update, and hopefully the Garbage collector will take it from there. Displays don't currently have a reference to the Display manager, so that will be changed as well --DCS Editor Open Bugs Recommendation: Add the ability to terminate a line anywhere. Draw a box there. Clicks on the box should edit the name. This name should go in the external inputs/outputs list depending on what type of port it is attached to. The name should also be added to the port that it is attached to as the attribute external_name. Originator: KDU Status: open Recommendation: Make Symbol the thing that is displayed in the center of nodes. Also, add the type aBitmap so that Symbol can be a bitmap or text string. Originator: KDU Status: open Problem: When opening a file under the editor it causes a null pointer exception. Originator: BGB Status: open Priority: There is a workaround.

Problem: Once a connection between links has been made you can't delete it. Originator: BGB Status: open Priority: Makes things difficult or impossible for users. Problem: There needs to be a general undo. Originator: DCS Status: open Problem: The update from the manager should be implemented. Originator: BGB Status: open Priority: Low since no one else has an agent that would call this. Problem: Links should look better. Originator: BGB Status: open Priority: Cosmetic change. Problem: Link needs to be changed to a port. Originator: BGB Status: open, pending Nathan changes Priority: See above Problem: Nodes redraw once after they are deleted. Originator: DCS Status: open BGB Priority: Causes some problems with the delete. Same as removing connection.
