First-time bugs (login info lost, errors in log file)

Reported by Jim Avera | January 5th, 2015 @ 10:09 AM | in 2.1 Release

Some errors occur the very first time JBW is run: The ebay login & pw prompted for at startup are apparently not saved, or somehow lost.

Also, error messages are logged like "Column data for 'current' was corrupted; resetting to defaults"

Since $HOME/.jbidwatcher was completely removed first, there should be no bugs hit relating to unexpected state from prior runs.

After exiting, .jbidwatcher/JBidWatch.cfg contains
ebay.user=default which seems to confirm that the results from the initial dialog asking for login & pw were lost.

I'm running 2.5.6-11-gac197d6 with Java 1.8.0_25 on Linux 64-bit (Ubuntu 14.10)


  1. rm -rf $HOME/.jbidwatcher
  2. java -Xmx512m -jar JBidwatcher-2.5.6.jar
  3. Enter ebay login & pw when prompted
  4. eBay->Refresh eBat Session

Pop-up error "You cannot update the login cookie without first entering your login information on the ebay configuation tab".

EXPECTED RESULTS: The login info prompted for at startup should have been saved.
