Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-35381) Apache Flex Installer download fails for OSMF
Date Tue, 27 Mar 2018 14:42:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-35381?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16415736#comment-16415736

Gaius Coffey commented on FLEX-35381:



This is what I had to do (and in this order);
 # Using the URLs _*that are in the currently configured XML*_, I downloaded the following
files; afe.jar, aglj40.jar, flex-fontkit.jar, rideau.jar, OSMF.swc (for OSMF 2.0)
 # Used a URL mapping to point the configured XML to the downloaded files
 # Ran the downloader...

The issue appears to be the downloader's inability to handle multiple redirects. 

 # All of the "fake URL" described in the <fontSwf /> node of the config file cannot
be reached on my machine using the valid URLs therein due to redirects.
 # The partial URL described in the <OSMF_SWC_2.0 /> node cannot be reached on my machine
using the relative URL therein due to redirects.


There are two potential fixes to this;
 # A server-side / server configuration fix to the URLs to generate redirect headers that
the downloader _can_ handle
 # A coding fix to the downloader to recover from multiple redirects that are currently causing
the app to freeze
