CPC on Mac OS 11 Beta blank window

Post by craigr » Fri Jul 10, 2020 7:54 am

I admit to pushing the envelope but I kinda need Vault to work on my Mac running the OS 11 beta. When I launch the CPC I get the login prompt, then once I log in I get the repository list, then once I choose the repository I get this:

If I touch the window at all, I get a spinning beachball forever. If I don't touch anything, nothing happens. I let it run all night last night thinking maybe it was downloading the initial project tree but in the morning, still the same.

Java version appears to be 8, JDK 14.

Any ideas?

Hello,

When experiencing this issue, which chip are you using? Intel or ARM?

Thanks,

Tonya

If I were using the ARM chip, I wouldn't be allowed to say.

If your advice is different depending on the processor, it might be a good idea to discuss both, in case someone who is under an NDA is experiencing this problem

Hello again,

We are currently working on setting up a test machine with the MacOS 11 Beta on Intel. We will then investigate how the Vault CPC runs on this Beta OS and follow up with any updates in regards to this platform in the next few days.

Thanks,

Tonya

Hello again,

I wanted to get back in touch with you to provide you with an update. We have been able to reproduce the problem you are reporting. We are currently researching into why the foundation libraries do not seem to be working correctly in a Mac OS 11 environment.

Apologies this is taking longer than anticipated. I can report it isn't a JDK version issue, as the issue is still present with previous JDKs as well. I'll update this thread with updates as they come along.

Well... I won't have a solution any time soon. Recently, Eclipse Foundation accidentally changed some "native" app features that were used to build Vault without first checking with users. I'm going thru bug channels to find a work-around. Wanted to update you on the situation.

Ugh. Well it is what it is.

Perhaps electronjs.org would be a good cross-platform solution. Microsoft used it for VS Code. But like you need to rewrite Vault. :-)

I also tried the CLI but couldn't get it to work either. That might be completely different reason for failure. Any chance that would be a path worth spending time on?

Electron would be a non-starter as it would be a complete re-write. Still actively working with the Eclipse Foundation crowd. Still making progress on what's changed between versions, so that's good news.

OK. It is definitely an Eclipse issue right now. It looks as if some bugs have been logged with the Eclipse foundation. We'll monitor. If they get something done in a pre-release, we'll try to build with a pre-release version and see if we can get you a private build from that.

We've integrated some new changes from Eclipse Foundation regarding macOS 11 Beta. Can you download and try this private build of Vault Standard to see if it works on BigSur? Please report back your experience.

Let us know the results.
