When I download something from XAPI, for example[route=bicycle[bbox=12.06,48.57,18.97,51.06] bicycle routes], change sometnig, and I want to send my changes to server, it doesn't work. JOSM either pops up error some error in data upload or ends up in following unhandled exception:

Summary: JOSM have problems with files from XAPI[Patch] JOSM have problems with files from XAPI

There is a problem with the output from OSMXAPI. It seems that it doesn't include a version number on all elements and without a version number JOSM can't upload modified data. Whether and when OSMXAPI supports API 0.6 seems to be an open issue.

JOSM should have aborted the loading of[route=bicycle][bbox=12.06,48.57,18.97,51.06] with an error message but it didn't check for data consistency so far.

The attached patch should change this.

It also removes some code related to an attribute "oldversion". I could't find any reference to "oldversion" in the API 0.6 spec and so far I never saw it OSM files.

attachment:relation-reading-1.patch is an update of the patch. It accepts OSM primitives with id < 0 and a missing version attribute.

This patch breaks readability of version 0.5 files. I think it should still be allowed to open 0.5 files in JOSM, and an error should only occur when it is attempted to upload them to a 0.6 server.

I give it another try, see attachment:relation-reading-2.patch

  • now allows for missing version attribute in 0.5 files
  • now also reads new uid attribute introduced in 0.6
  • now avoids NPE because of undefined role on a relation member if user tries to write a dataset

BTW: how do you test that readability of a 0.5 file? Do you have any canonical 0.5 test files? There's no live API 0.5 around anymore to generate 0.5 files, is there?
