I’ve put up JHOVE 1.9 on the SourceForge site today. I think it’s the
least buggy version ever. Please let me know if I’m wrong.
- Jhove.java and JhoveView.java now get their version information from
JhoveBase.java. Before it was redundantly kept in three places, and
sometimes they didn’t all get updated for a new release. Like in 1.8.
- ConfigWriter was in the package edu.harvard.hul.ois.jhove.viewer, which
caused a NoClassDefFoundError if non-GUI configurations didn’t include
JhoveViewer.jar in the classpath. It’s been moved to
- Added script packagejhove.sh and made md5.pl part of the CVS repository
to make packaging for delivery easier.
- jhove.bat now simply uses the Java command rather than requiring
the user to set up the Java path.
- JhoveView.jar and jhove (the top level shell script) are now forced
by ant to be executable so there are no mistakes.
- Warning message given on invalid buffer size string, and minimum
buffer size is 1024.
- Configuration file code for adding handlers and giving init strings
to modules was an awful mess that never could have worked. Major repairs done.
- If an AIFF file was found to be little-endian, the module instance
would stay in little-endian mode for all subsequent files. This
has been fixed.
- TIFF files that had strip or tile offsets but no corresponding byte
counts were throwing an exception all the way to the top level. Now
they’re correctly being reported as invalid.
- Cleaned up reporting of schemas, Added some small classes to replace
the use of string arrays for information structures. Made URI comparison
for local schema parameter case-independent. Resolved conflict between
“s” and “schema” parameters.
- Some uncaught exceptions caused the module to throw all the way
back to JhoveBase and not report any result for certain defective
files. These now report the file as not well-formed.
