------------------ Additional Follow-up Comments ----------------------------
Alex M. applied something in cvs for me which I believe should
fix this.

where connecting to the running application would fail in some

cases (see ChangeLog)



though i'm not seeing the ordering front of the clicked on application and haven't tried the keyboard modifier, I'm guessing those cases should be handled in GWorkspace

GWorkspace can't do this.


=================== BUG #6056: FULL BUG SNAPSHOT ===================


Submitted by: stefanu Project: GNUstep Submitted on: Sun 10/19/2003 at 19:08 Category: Gui/AppKit Severity: 3 Bug Group: Bug Resolution: None Assigned to: None Status: Open
Summary:  Duplicate application launching

Original Submission: If I launch an application, that is already running, i get an alert panel asking me about renaming, ignoring or aborting. I would expect that the existing application instance will be activated instead. So the behaviour should be: If there is already running application, activate it, if there is not, launch it.



Btw. are there any situations, where one would like to have two instances of one application open? How are they compared to the usual situations?



From the point of user, I consider this to be a bug. Moreover, it is another additional confusion.

I'm not sure what context you are referring to (ie what application launching mechanism you are talking about).



Certainly I like the behavior the NeXT workspace used to haver, where double clicking on an application in the workspace would simply bring the app windows to the front if the app was already running, but a keyboard modifier would force the launch of another copy of the application.

I see that as an issue for the workspace manager ...

If it uses the NSWorkspace method launchApplication:shoiwIcon:autolaunche: the behavior should be the one we like. Are you saying that there are circumstances where this method does not work properly?

Or are you talking about some other situation entirely?
