relates to SAK-10159 Unable to interpret RSS from Google News CLOSED
CLE Team Issue:


The news tool fails to resolve Google RSS feeds. One solution recommended by Sam Ottenhoff (see SAK-10159) involves adding -Dhttp.agent=Sakai to JAVA_OPTS. Matthew Buckett has also contributed an update patch for ROME that requires additional work before it can be implemented (see also SAK-10159). The current recommendation is to specify the http.agent in JAVA_OPTS explicitly.
