Windows 2008 R2 64 bit , Internet Explorer (8 and 9)
Getting warning message in a popup saying "Failed to evaluate. Invalid arguments" for jelly form control validateButton. I am getting this pop up irrespective of actual result of validation.
This is happening only in Internet Explorer(8 and 9). This is not getting reproduced when running jenkins using "mvn hpi:run" but
getting reproduced when running jenkins using command "java -jar jenkins.war" and then manually importing hpi file from advanced tab.
For complete details , refer to discussion in
Sample to reproduce this issue is available in my github
or alternatively you can install https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/SCTMExecutor plugin and try to validate in global configuration in IE.
For validate button form control , implementation is available @ scripts/hudson-behavior.js
In validate function , we are using a custom function geval which is causing the issue.
If i replace geval with eval i see that everything works as expected in IE as well.
I will be submitting the fix in git shortly
- is blocking
JENKINS-15617 <st:bind> does not work inside <l:ajax>
So what script fragment is causing "invalid argument"? It seems like the root cause is that there's an empty value in the script header, not the use of geval.
I'm fixing this by adding s!="" check.
This also explains why this bug depends on the servlet container. Jetty must be handlin addHeader("script",null) as removing the header while Winstone must be treating it like addHeader("script","");
Confirmed. In script console,
> eval("") undefined > window.execScript("") (x) "Invalid argument."
Code changed in jenkins

eval("") is no-op in IE but window.execScript("") isn't.
So bring the uniformity outside

I was asked my Jesse Glick to mark this issue as "blocking"
JENKINS-15617to capture the relationship.
I am not sure how to do that. Can some one take care of this
