Bug 41717

GemBuilder for Smalltalk/VA

5.4, 5.3.2, 5.3.1, 5.3, 5.2.7, 5.2.6, 5.2.5

All

5.4.1

Invalid class connectors can make session unusable

nvalid class connectors can cause login failures. Upon login, if GemBuilder
finds a class connector for which it cannot successfully connect, the user
is presented with a dialog asking the user if he or she would like to remove
the invalid connector. If the user chooses to say 'No', subsequent openings
of the GemStone classes browser will attempt to use that invalid connector
and cause errors. It is possible that even if the user chooses 'Yes', errors
could occur if the the invalid connector was encountered inside of a flush
to the server.

Workaround

If you encounter a failed connector, select 'Yes' to remove the connector,
then logout and log back in. If you wish to keep that connector, resolve
the failure before opening the class browser.
