JabRef is incompatible with java9:

@j0hannes, I can't seem to reproduce the issue. Are you still having problems with the build? Could you share your version of java?

j0hannes commented on 2017-11-11 19:23

the current version leads to this error message:

Error: Could not find or load main class org.jabref.JabRefMain
Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javafx/application/Application

The launch script from the original submitter is designed to select the latest version of java by simply sorting the results from a 'find' command, but I don't think that's really recommended by the wiki.

I'm going to set it to use the default determined by archlinux-java. I **think** the issue now will be with users defaulting to jdk7, so I will leave a commented portion in the script for defaulting to jdk8.

It seems like having openjdk-9 breaks the launch script.
/usr/bin/jabref: line 5: /usr/lib/jvm/java-9-openjdk/jre/bin/java: No such file or directory

For openjdk9 the actual path is actually (no /jre/):

I don't think it's because of my setup, here's what is installed:
pacman -Qs openjdk
local/jdk8-openjdk 8.u144-1
OpenJDK Java 8 development kit
local/jdk9-openjdk 9.u181-4
OpenJDK Java 9 development kit

It seems like the maintainers changed their versioning from 4.0.0 to 4.0. I updated the pkgvers() function to just use the annotated git tags as this should prevent this from happening in the future.

The update manager always prompt for an update for this package since the version installed doesn't match the advertised version (4.0_v_2.9.2.r7258.d46fd5c84-1 vs 4.0.0_v_2.9.2.r6747.e9a4c7065-1)

Fixed the icon issue. It looks like the path changed. I switched to using the svg instead of the png for the icon. Let me know if this is not preferable.

j0hannes commented on 2017-03-20 20:21

The build fails with

install: cannot stat 'build/resources/main/images/icons/JabRef-icon-48.png': No such file or directory

Everything's fine but the icon is missing.

JabRef now fully uses Gradle, no ANT anymore. `./gradlew shadowJar` creates the jar in `build/libs`. In the current 3.5 branch, it is `JabRef-3.5dev-fat.jar`.

Latest development snapshots are availabe at

I would comment on, but this link is 404.

The new JabRef URL is, no sourceforge anymore.
