Moving ahead, we will now focus on how to file bugs/tasks/enhancements, etc. using JIRA Issue Tracker being used for my project.

There are currently 5 issues filed for this project, two being TASK and remaining three being BUGS. I have recently blogged about 2 bugs I encountered. Now, I will share with you more details about the bug, how did I resolve one of them for RHN v1.2. Also, I have been able to solve 2 issues for the previous release, i.e. RHN v1.1.

List of issues to be fixed for RHN v1.2

As you may see, one of the issues has been fixed, while others remain unresolved. The bug I have fixed was caused due to code refactoring done recently for version 1.1 of the module. The following diff clearly shows how the bug was resolved by the addition of one if-statement.

                             if (editorFlag == false) {

As you can see, I have added check for panes.  If its not null, then invoke setPosition method and set editorFlag to false. The code snippet actually looks like this;

JEditorPane[] panes = editor.getOpenedPanes();
if (hyperLink.length <= 1) {
 anchorName = null;
if (panes != null) {

This code checks whether there’s any opened TopComponent having the same displayName() as that of file, where user has to navigate to. If so, then switch to that editor tab.
