Problem with setting dojoConfig.packages, loading dojo with IE in async loading mode

Description (last modified by bill)

Loading dojo in the new (recommended) way for enabling async. loading, e.g. like this (controlled by JSP) doesn't work with IE (with Firefox there are no problems):

 var dojoConfig = { async:<%=async%>, parseOnLoad: true, packages: [
        {name: "generic",location: '<%=rootPath%>/modules/generic'},
        {name: "storage",location: '<%=rootPath%>/modules/storage'},
        {name: "appl", location: '<%=rootPath%>/appl'},]};    
 <script type="text/javascript" src="<%=dojoPath%><%=dojoFile%>">  </script>

The loading process stops in dojo.js at the first line of "fixupPackageInfo" (Line 472 of dojo.js in the source release):

fixupPackageInfo = function(packageInfo, baseUrl)

	var name =;


This is because by some reason it may happen that packageInfo can be null. Then IE complains and stops. A quick fix which solves the problem in my application is:

var name = packageInfo?;

I am aware, that the root cause of the problem may possibly be somewhere else (that would have been to hard to debug). Nevertheless I would greatly appreachiate a standard solution, because otherwise I can't deliver an asynchroneous Version of the program.

Thanks, Joachim Dengler

try fixing your stray comma and see if the problem goes away:

{name: "appl", location: '<%=rootPath%>/appl'},]}; 

// should be

{name: "appl", location: '<%=rootPath%>/appl'}]};

Thanks neonstalwart!


If this is a real problem, please provide a reduced test case with actual parametes. Debugging indirect code via a JSP template is not something we have time for gratis.
