  • Roo shell does not give output

    When I use the Roo shell I don't see any of the very important output. Here is an unedited copy of my recent shell session:

    roo> version
    roo> hint
    roo> help
    ** Type 'hint' (without the quotes) and hit ENTER for step-by-step guidance **

    roo> blahblah
    Command 'blahblah' not found (for assistance press TAB or type "hint" then hit ENTER)

    As you can see it will print purple things out, but not green things. hint should have printed a bunch of lines of stuff and it did nothing

    The Roo shell does seem to be working otherwise. I can run scripts and generate stuff just fine, but I don't know if I made an error because those get printed in the green kind of message.

    I am using Ubuntu 8.10 and I started using Roo 1.0.0 RC2 and just upgraded to RC 3, although that didn't fix the problem.

    Please double-check $JAVA_HOME points to a Sun JDK (not OpenJDK). There are known issues with OpenJDK regarding console output.

      yes, that is the problem: I have java home pointed at openjdk.
