missing some JAR's.....

Sean from the great BMT plugin has been helping me with some issues with his BMT plugin and from my logs he realized I am missing 2 important JAR's commons-io and htmlparser.

I was going to just reinstall 7.0.15 on top of itself and see if that helps things. I thought I'd post here first as I don't know if that's something the dev's want to hear about.

so if anyone has any comments or ideas let me know!
Take care,

Seth's issue is really kind of odd. While it appears that he's installed the bmtweb plugin, many of the dependency jars are simply not installed. At this point, I'm not sure if they were they, and they got removed, or if the plugin installed failed to write them (ie, persmissions, etc).

Is it just the JARs themselves that have gone missing? Do the dependency plugins those JARs belong to still show up in the Installed Plugins list?

If so, then it sounds to me like it could be a packaging error somewhere. Suppose there's a Plugin X out there that includes those JARs directly as part of its plugin package, rather than as dependencies. Then installing and uninstalling Plugin X could have the effect of first overwriting and then removing JARs needed as dependencies by other plugins (such as BMT).

I'm not sure how you would find out if such a Plugin X exists, short of downloading all available plugins and inspecting their zips for redundant JARs. Maybe the plugin installer could be improved to detect attempts by Plugin X to overwrite or remove files owned by Plugin Y. But I don't think it currently keeps track of which files belong to which plugins.

In any case, it seems unlikely that re-running the 7.0.15 installer would do anything to repair this state, since those missing JARs are obviously not part of that installer.

The plugin installer logic is smart enough to detect when multiple plugins install the same file; so if there was such a Plugin X, installing/removing it would not wipe out the JAR files from another plugin even if they both referenced the same filename. So that's probably not the issue.

He'll just need to uninstall and reinstall those plugins to fix the problem (and would have to remove anything dependent on those plugins before it would even allow him to uninstall them as well, so he may have to remove a lot of things).

thanks everyone, I was thinking the jars missing were ones that should have been installed by default.
Take care,
