A customer called today, wondering why his Thomson Lawbook Online didn't work on his MacOS/X machine. It didn't work on Safari, nor on Mozilla and neither on Firefox.
Thomson Support didn't really show their cluefullness: Yes, it has Java installed. No, it's not a network problem. No, Internet Explorer for the Mac has been phased out years ago.
Now I do like the simplicity of Mac, but it doesn't really make debugging easier. Luckely, searching for "java preferences" showed me three applications with which I could display the JDK Consoles.
They showed this:
That explains a little bit...JTOC::init java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: "142_09" at java.lang.NumberFormatException.forInputString (NumberFormatException.java:48) at java.lang.Integer.parseInt(Integer.java:477) at java.lang.Integer.parseInt(Integer.java:518) at JTOC.setBrowserInfo(JTOC.java:577) at JTOC.init(JTOC.java:224) at sun.applet.AppletPanel.run(AppletPanel.java:354) at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:552)
Note It's now halfway August, and Thomson Online hasn't come back to me with anything else "Can you please make sure he has the latest JDK installed."| Share on Facebook | Share on Twitter
