#905 IOException when saving file

3: Ugly

The following steps throw an exception in revision 5425

1. Start DrJava
2. Type something on text area
3. Save
4. Type random text containing "/" (e.g. "/dd/crash.java") in filename textbox
5. Click OK

A dialog box containing IOException trace will show up. I'm unable to copy the trace here because it doesn't show up in the Errors window.

OS: Ubuntu 10.10
Java: jdk-6-21

    This error seems happen to almost all other Open and Save windows. For example, in Create New Project,

    1. Follow Menu Project/New
    2. Enter /crash/crash/crash in the project path textbox
    3. OK

    Exception trace:

    I don't think the IOException on Save is a bug. If a user enters an invalid file, some error has to be displayed. We should omit the stack trace, though. It makes it look like a bug.

    The IO operations that can be done with projects, as well as Save All, do have bugs, though. If the user enters a project file that cannot be accessed, the operation should terminate, not pop up the Project Properties window and several error windows.

    I'm working on fixing both.
