I'm attempting to learn RPE 1.2 and am stuck on Lesson 2, Step 3c. The instructions say "In the Properties view, you can enter the default URI as the tutorialSpecialAttributes.xml data file." Can someone please explain how to do this?
If I click on "Data Source Schemas", the properties window says "Properties are not available".
At one point after fiddling around, I was able to get a table with one a column for "Property" and a second column for "Value" but I couldn't edit either. And, I haven't figured out how to get that display back.
After closing the Properties view and trying to reopen it, I'm blessed with a dialogue box with "An error has occurred. See error log for more details. java.lang.NullPointerException" and an error in the Properties window called "Could not create the view: An unexpected exception was thrown." I assume that this error is the result of doing something unexpected that no sane knowledgeable person would do.
So, I guess my real question is "Is there an obvious way for me to get around the "Properties are not available" message and actually enter the default URI? Or, could the problem be that the tutorial's instructions haven't been updated for version 1.2 and that I should be doing something completely different?
Thank you, in advance.
