    No posts for nearly a month? Is FireflyClient dead?

    With no new work on Firefly in 2 years, is it any wonder that there are no client posts?
    The spam volume may be a major factor though

    Oh, Daemon Duck, thanks for reporting spam posts in legitimate threads, it makes finding & deleting the stuff a bit easier.

    Using Firefly Version svn-1696 | client 0.9b

    I’m using FireFlyClient for a long time without any problems. Now i’ve got the following message when trying to load the songs:

    [FireflyClientException] class org.xml.sax.SAXParseException – SAXException while unmarshalling the song list (during parsing).
    at net.firefly.client.controller.request.RSPRequestManager.getSongList(RSPRequestManager.java:499)
    at net.firefly.client.gui.swing.dialog.DatabaseDialog$LoadRemoteSongListButtonActionListener$1.run(DatabaseDialog.java:596)
    at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)

    Information: To connect and play songs via Roku Soundbridge is not the problem.

    Any ideas.

    Some month ago I posted a bug description about the sorting order in playlists.
    Today I received a notice, that the bug has been fixed.
    So a new release of the java client is soon to come … 🙂

    Hi,

    I have a ReadyNAS at home with the firefly server on it sharing all of my itunes library. I want to be able to connect to that library from work.

    I am using the FireflyClient and I can play back all of my MP3s fine, but none of my m4a’s. From previous posts, it appears this is a known issue. My question is, is this something even fixable or does apple not allow this?

    If it is not fixable, is there any way for me to stream my music to work without having to transcode all of my music to mp3? I am willing to even use iTunes at work if I have to. Problem is, it doesn’t see the share because we are not on the same network.

    Thanks!

    I have still the following problem:

    I’m using FireFlyClient (Version svn-1696 | client 0.9b) for a long time without any problems. Now i’ve got the following exception message on the client side when trying to load the songs:

    [FireflyClientException] class org.xml.sax.SAXParseException – SAXException while unmarshalling the song list (during parsing).
    at net.firefly.client.controller.request.RSPRequestManager.getSongList(RSPRequestManager.java:499)
    at net.firefly.client.gui.swing.dialog.DatabaseDialog$LoadRemoteSongListButtonActionListener$1.run(DatabaseDialog.java:596)
    at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)

    The Firefly server crashes (see logfile of the server):

    2010-01-04 14:09:19 (00018003): Thread 3: Bad arg:
    2010-01-04 14:09:31 (00004000): Rendezvous socket closed (daap server crashed?) Aborting.

    Any ideas?

    I’m having a frustrating problem using the Java Firefly client, and I can’t determine (with confidence) whether the problem is related to Java, or to the Firefly client. I’ve found countless mentions of the problem online through Bing and Google, but nothing I’ve found has led to an effective solution.

    I cannot run the .jar from the Windows GUI.

    * I’m running Windows 7 (64-bit).
    * I’ve downloaded FireflyClient-v0.9b-20081231.jar .

    Before beginning this process, I had Java – J2SE Runtime & Dev Kits version 1.50.220 installed.

    No file association or filetype existed for .jar files.

    I added the file associations and filetypes.

    Next, I downloaded and installed Java 6 Update, version 6.0.180.

    The problem remains.

    If I double-click the .jar file, I see this error:
    “Could not find the main class. Program will exit.” The title of the error window is “Java Virtual Machine Launcher”.

    The error seems to suggest to me that the problem is that the .jar file doesn’t specify the main class properly.

    BUT, if I open a command prompt window and enter this command:

    javaw -jar FireflyClient-v0.9b-20081231.jar

    Then, the program opens and runs fine.


    C:UsersSteveDownloads>assoc .jar
    .jar=jarfile

    C:UsersSteveDownloads>ftype jarfile
    jarfile="C:Program FilesJavajre6binjavaw.exe" -jar "%1" %*

    I’ve tried changing the ftype to run java.exe instead of javaw.exe, and also tried removing the %* characters from the end of the line.

    I don’t understand why the program runs perfectly fine if I launch it from the command line myself, yet if I try to run it by double-clicking I get the error, considering that the ftype seems to be running the same command I run manually.

    Looking at my PATH variable, the path included the 1.5.0.22 jdk, not the jre6 directory. I changed the ftype to use that javaw.exe, so that the command-line and GUI would use the same javaw.exe, and I still see the same discrepancy – I can’t start the program from a double-click, getting the error described above, yet running the above command from the console starts the program just fine.

    I’m stumped. Help?

    Thanks,
    Steve
