SVN update not working on build server

Project:JNode Builder
Category:bug report

It fails with the following message:

     [exec] Error validating server certificate for '':
     [exec]  - The certificate hostname does not match.

(see the build log in 'Build status')

Strangely this doesn't make the whole build process fail, which would be important for immediately detecting the issue.


I had the same kind of message while updating from svn yesterday. I choosed "(p)ermanently" and everything seemed to work well after (but I have not yet tried to do a commit).

I have no idea what's the problem ... sounds like an issue on sourceforge side.
From the above message, it sounds to be due to url mismatch : and *

I ran it one time manually and accepted the certificate permanently. So this should be working again.

I have no real clue why the whole build process failed, this is indeed strange. If you look at the build script, I'd expect the build process to fail as it would for a javac error. I guess it is due to the svn command returning "0" as exit code in that case.

Marking as fixed.
