JS Resources not loaded in IE


I'm developping plugins for Jira 5. I have the following description:

<web-resource key="autocomplete" name="Activities Autocompleter">
        <resource type="download" name="activity-edit-ac.js" location="com/xxx/apps/jira/plugins/xxx/web/js/activity-edit-ac.js" />
		<resource type="download" name="activity-edit.css" location="com/xxx/apps/jira/plugins/xxx/web/css/activity-edit.css"><property key="content-type" value="text/css"/></resource>
		<resource type="download" name="auto_button.gif" location="com/xxx/apps/jira/plugins/xxx/web/img/auto_button.gif" />

It works perfectly fine with Firefox (3 & 10) and Chrome. But in IE (7 & 9) my resources are not loaded (I can't see my javascripts files in the head section)

What is going on? Anybody have seen this before??

This widget could not be displayed.

Ok, have found this one, seems closely related to my issue:


This widget could not be displayed.

I don't think they should appear in the <head> section, they should be added to batch.js. You can disable this by adding the element:

<param name="batch" value="false"/>

to your <resource> element. Or in dev you can set system prop jira.dev.mode: true.

What actual script error do you get in IE, if any?

have changed the context to atl.general, still the same problem...

changing the user-agent using Fiddler to something else than IE, my resources get loaded...

This widget could not be displayed.

Actually, I should have an error saying my call is not a function, and obviously that's right since it's not defined anywhere (neither in batch.js nor any other js resource) (not sure about the exact error message since my developper station has very restrictive security settings, and I can't activate scripting error popups, but using alert almost everywhere I'm sure my function get not called).

Your tip of setting a param batch to false did not help... Exact same behavior...

Why under FF and Chrome the include is made right, and not under ie? it's weird to have a different server behavior depending on the browser, for such a simple thing as adding a script tag in the head section...

Yes, under FF and Chrome I can see a node like that in the head section:

&lt;script type="text/javascript" src="/jira/s/fr_CH-a1hkwu/713/3/1.0-SNAPSHOT/_/download/resources/com.xxx.apps.jira.plugins.xxx:autocomplete/activity-edit-ac.js" &gt;&lt;/script&gt;

And not with IE...

> it's weird to have a different server behavior depending on the browser

I agree, it is weird. So the page source is actually different? You expect some minor differences like diff stylesheets, but not that.
