I really have put off working on my RadioAtomBridge for a while
now. It worked for me, and that’s what counts … right? 🙂
Well, over the last week, it stopped working for me … and I was
frustrated. I haven’t seen any comments on the blog about it, and
so I figured that it was probably ok, but the more that I looked into
the problem it appears that there were two issues:
- It appears that Blogger/Google have lived up to their promise of
requiring SSL/TLS to secure the ATOM posting. This really does
make sense, and I’m not against … I just didn’t want to have to edit
code again. But I have, and I am now testing this new version
that I worked on last night. If all goes well, I’ll post a new
version for people in the next day or so. Oh and another note …
this is slowly becoming the Radio Blogger Bridge
again since I am slowly hardcoding some things to work with Blogger,
and removing some options. I might see how easy it is to add an
option for SSL/non-SSL … but don’t count on it.
- I also found that Blogger will not allow you to create a post
that does not include a “title”. So if you post, and the title is
empty, it causes a java:Null Pointer Exception on their server.
Wonderful. I haven’t yet fixed this, but am looking at what I
might do … maybe force a default title of the time and date?
Anyhow … it was fun to get into Radio again … and it was also a
pain. I hate that I have not yet found a fully supported blogging
tool that really does what I want it to do. But I am working on
