ProcessPanelWorker does not clear old jobs, it keeps adding additional jobs


    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Reopened
    • Priority: Low
    • Resolution: Unresolved
    • Affects Version/s: 4.3.3
    • Fix Version/s: 4.3.4, 5.0
    • Component/s: Installer, Panels
    • Environment:

      All platforms


      The com.izforge.izpack.installer.ProcessPanelWorker maintains a list of the jobs that it will execute (ArrayList<ProcessingJob> jobs). When the ProcessPanelWorker runs, it parses the ProcessPanel.Spec.xml to create jobs for the currently selected packs (AutomatedInstallData.selectedPacks) and adds them to the list. Unfortunately, this list is never cleared. Each time the ProcessPanelWorker runs, it will keep adding or re-adding jobs to this list.

      We use the ProcessPanel to execute 3rd party installers based on a user's selection from the PacksPanel (via executeForPack in ProcessPanel.Spec.xml). If I allow users to navigate back to the PacksPanel to revise their packs selection, the jobs for the new selection are added on to this list of jobs. When the user proceeds to the ProcessPanel again, the old jobs will still be executed and the total number of jobs will be the sum of the old jobs and the new jobs. For example (assuming 1 job per pack), if I choose pack A, the process panel will show 1, but if I go back and select packs B and C and de-select pack A, the process panel will now show 3 rather than 2 and it will execute the jobs for packs A, B and C.

      I believe the jobs list should be cleared each time before the ProcessPanelWorker parses the ProcessPanel.Spec.xml.
