Daily Log for #alfresco

2017-09-21 07:55:17 GMT <yreg> Morning fellows

2017-09-21 08:21:52 GMT <Kintu> Hi

2017-09-21 08:23:13 GMT <Bhushan> Hello

2017-09-21 08:23:23 GMT <Kintu> Hi

2017-09-21 08:24:04 GMT <yreg> Kintu, Bhushan hi

2017-09-21 09:02:08 GMT <yreg> mbui, The requirement you expressed yesterday would make a great hackathon project

2017-09-21 09:02:28 GMT <yreg> I think AFaust would be interested in that as well

2017-09-21 09:03:12 GMT <yreg> (adding new policies to public API services in ACS)

2017-09-21 09:03:13 GMT <AFaust> With regards to policies / behaviours?

2017-09-21 09:03:40 GMT <AFaust> Yeah - PermissionService is a service that would be at the top of my list.

2017-09-21 09:04:20 GMT <yreg> makes sense but there is a workaround for that

2017-09-21 09:04:38 GMT <AFaust> Don't know about workflows / tasks, because they sort of already have that capability via TaskListener, but it might be more consistent in Alfresco-land to have behaviours for that

2017-09-21 09:04:46 GMT <yreg> if you set permission changes to trigger the auditable behavior ..

2017-09-21 09:05:02 GMT <AFaust> *cough* ughhh

2017-09-21 09:05:19 GMT <AFaust> that cascades into index tracking updates as well...

2017-09-21 09:05:48 GMT <yreg> oups, forgot about solr tracking acls for reads

2017-09-21 09:06:23 GMT <AFaust> Also, since when is that an option in ALfresco core?

2017-09-21 09:07:10 GMT <yreg> AFaust, I do not know, I think I came across the config property sometime back

2017-09-21 09:07:12 GMT <AFaust> Hmm - I just looked into 5.2.g code and there actually are now policies for the PermissionService - interesting

2017-09-21 09:09:08 GMT <AFaust> Added on June 15th this year, so extremely fresh

2017-09-21 09:09:34 GMT <angelborroy> Some sample for Unit Testing custom Web Scripts using JAR Repo artifact as base?

2017-09-21 09:09:36 GMT <AFaust> For some reason, the commit is lacking any comment

2017-09-21 09:10:01 GMT <AFaust> Also AuthorityServicePolicies...

2017-09-21 09:13:40 GMT <mbui> Also just received another requirement: All users that is assigned a task should receive an email.

2017-09-21 09:14:12 GMT <AFaust> mbui: That is standard behaviour though and provided out-of-the-box

2017-09-21 09:14:20 GMT <yreg> mbui, that one is easy, and available ootb

2017-09-21 09:19:44 GMT <mbui> TaskNotificationListener, right. Thanks :)

2017-09-21 09:20:41 GMT <mbui> Isn't it possible to have a tasklistener that triggers whenever a task is created OR updated? Instead of creating interceptors on workflowservice?

2017-09-21 09:24:05 GMT <yreg> Does any one have an idea about alfresco OAIS compliance ?

2017-09-21 09:24:57 GMT <yreg> angelborroy, unit testing or integration testing ?

2017-09-21 09:25:18 GMT <angelborroy> yreg both

2017-09-21 09:25:26 GMT <angelborroy> but I don’t want to move to AIO

2017-09-21 09:25:31 GMT <angelborroy> I don’t like that approach

2017-09-21 09:26:32 GMT <yreg> angelborroy, well in my experience, you get a lot of headache when you move away from AIO

2017-09-21 09:26:50 GMT <yreg> but what if you create an IO project without children projects

2017-09-21 09:27:04 GMT <yreg> list your jar as a platformModule

2017-09-21 09:27:17 GMT <yreg> and as a dependency in your integration-tests

2017-09-21 09:27:23 GMT <yreg> and start from there ?

2017-09-21 09:27:43 GMT <angelborroy> so there is no “official” path for this

2017-09-21 09:27:47 GMT <angelborroy> ok, I’ll create mine

2017-09-21 09:27:53 GMT <angelborroy> just to be sure

2017-09-21 09:27:54 GMT <yreg> at least not integration-tests

2017-09-21 09:28:10 GMT <yreg> you can re-check ole's presentation from beecon though

2017-09-21 09:28:31 GMT <angelborroy> it’s only related to AIO

2017-09-21 09:28:37 GMT <yreg> are you using dynamic-extensions ?

2017-09-21 09:28:42 GMT <angelborroy> nope

2017-09-21 09:28:43 GMT <yreg> if it is an option

2017-09-21 09:28:48 GMT <angelborroy> not really

2017-09-21 09:28:54 GMT <yreg> you can really do alot with that beast

2017-09-21 09:28:58 GMT <angelborroy> I like to develop as close as the product as possible

2017-09-21 09:30:49 GMT <fwu> hi all!

2017-09-21 09:44:15 GMT <mbui> if (Boolean.TRUE.equals(sendEMailNotification) == true) :thinking:

2017-09-21 10:05:47 GMT <bmejias> Hi all, so, it's 22:05 in New Zealand right now.

2017-09-21 10:06:06 GMT <bmejias> in a bit less than 2 hours the Global Virtual Hacakthon will start.

2017-09-21 10:06:08 GMT <bmejias> isn't it?

2017-09-21 10:06:10 GMT <bmejias> :D

2017-09-21 10:12:14 GMT <fwu> ppl, I have some error entries like the following. Any idea about the source of this kind of error?

2017-09-21 10:12:17 GMT <fwu> Set 20, 2017 5:49:15 PM org.apache.catalina.core.ApplicationDispatcher invoke SEVERE: Servlet.service() for servlet jsp threw exception java.lang.NullPointerException

2017-09-21 10:13:37 GMT <fwu> at org.apache.jasper.servlet.JspServlet.service(JspServlet.java:334) and other error lines

2017-09-21 10:13:57 GMT <MTielemans> Could you paste the entire stacktrace to something like pastebin?

2017-09-21 10:14:04 GMT <fwu> yes, sure

2017-09-21 10:14:50 GMT <fwu> https://pastebin.com/dXUXYCeE

2017-09-21 10:14:51 GMT <alfbot> Title: Set 20, 2017 5:49:15 PM org.apache.catalina.core.ApplicationDispatcher invoke S - Pastebin.com (at pastebin.com)

2017-09-21 10:15:07 GMT <fwu> jasper? jasperreports? any conversion, maybe?

2017-09-21 10:15:25 GMT <MTielemans> not jasper reports :p

2017-09-21 10:15:38 GMT <MTielemans> Do you know what a JSP servlet is?

2017-09-21 10:23:35 GMT <fwu> yes

2017-09-21 10:26:48 GMT <MTielemans> Well I can´t lay my finger on why but it seems that PageTag class is trying to write a String to the web view but fails to do so. I really don´t know what it is still used for though. Thought it was Explorer but I still see the class in Alfresco 5

2017-09-21 10:49:06 GMT <fwu> MTielemans, that is the problem. It is a generic error for me...

2017-09-21 10:49:37 GMT <MTielemans> If you have access logs enabled maybe you could crossref the timestamps

2017-09-21 11:41:23 GMT *** marsv024_ is now known as marsv024

2017-09-21 14:07:16 GMT <MartinM_> Hi guys. I'm very excited to work with you tomorrow (and in general more after the Hackathon) :)

2017-09-21 14:13:14 GMT <fcorti> MartinM_ looking forward to (virtually) meet all of you tomorrow

2017-09-21 14:56:53 GMT <bmejias> fcorti will there be a google hangout?

2017-09-21 15:09:22 GMT <fcorti> Ehi, this year we will use zoom

2017-09-21 15:09:51 GMT <fcorti> because with zoom we have a limit of 99 users

2017-09-21 15:09:56 GMT <fcorti> and should be enough

2017-09-21 15:10:13 GMT <fcorti> The link is

2017-09-21 15:10:43 GMT <fcorti> and will remain active for the entire duration of the hackathon

2017-09-21 15:21:15 GMT <bmejias> fcorti ok... let me check that zoom thing

2017-09-21 15:21:31 GMT <fcorti> is a website

2017-09-21 15:21:38 GMT <fcorti> nothing strange ;-)

2017-09-21 15:21:46 GMT <fcorti> Feel free to ask if you have problems

2017-09-21 15:23:51 GMT <bmejias> Belgium is not listed on the times of your blog post :(

2017-09-21 15:24:31 GMT <angelborroy> nor Spain

2017-09-21 15:24:40 GMT <fcorti> come on guys...

2017-09-21 15:24:43 GMT <fcorti> :-D

2017-09-21 15:24:51 GMT <fcorti> I'll add it

2017-09-21 15:25:01 GMT <fcorti> bmejias, Perù neither

2017-09-21 15:26:45 GMT <bmejias> fcorti, well, Perú doesn't have a hacker room, but there is one in Spain and in Belgium :D

2017-09-21 15:27:09 GMT <fcorti> let me add them

2017-09-21 15:27:10 GMT <fcorti> :-)

2017-09-21 15:27:38 GMT <bmejias> I don't see any hacker room in Paris nor Warsaw and they are listed... nice cities though, but... at least you could have put Nantes representing France

2017-09-21 15:31:33 GMT <fcorti> Check now!

2017-09-21 15:31:53 GMT <fcorti> Are you happy?

2017-09-21 15:31:56 GMT <fcorti> :-)

2017-09-21 15:43:52 GMT <angelborroy> Madrid????

2017-09-21 15:43:57 GMT <angelborroy> I would prefer Spain

2017-09-21 15:44:07 GMT <angelborroy> In fact, there is no hacker room in Madrid

2017-09-21 15:44:17 GMT <angelborroy> and we have all the same GMT in Spain

2017-09-21 15:45:49 GMT <fcorti> and considering the news I hear in TV... a generic Spain would be better

2017-09-21 15:45:52 GMT <fcorti> let me do it

2017-09-21 15:48:16 GMT <fcorti> bmejias, it is!

2017-09-21 15:48:38 GMT <fcorti> angelborroy, now it's better?

2017-09-21 15:49:03 GMT <angelborroy> better, thanks!

2017-09-21 15:49:12 GMT <fcorti> pfui...

2017-09-21 15:49:16 GMT <fcorti> :-)

2017-09-21 16:43:31 GMT <eswbitto> So I'm trying to determine what setting from this file I need to add in the alfresco-global.properties I'm getting this thumbnail error its at the beginning of the paste...https://pastebin.com/5by65CSs

2017-09-21 16:43:32 GMT <alfbot> Title: Error log ERROR [org.alfresco.repo.action.AsynchronousActionExecutionQueueImpl - Pastebin.com (at pastebin.com)

2017-09-21 16:43:48 GMT <eswbitto> I can't really tell what the parameters mean

2017-09-21 16:48:08 GMT <yreg> eswbitto, may I suggest that you somehow do a thread dump next time you hit that exception with the connection pool, then you can be sure it is the transformer

2017-09-21 16:49:01 GMT <yreg> eswbitto, in any case you need to know from which document type you are transforming to know what to tweak

2017-09-21 16:50:09 GMT <yreg> content.transformer.ImageMagick.extensions.*.png.supported=false

2017-09-21 16:50:29 GMT <yreg> should disable all/most thumbnail generation AFAIK

2017-09-21 16:51:03 GMT <eswbitto> yreg I'm looking at a dump right now. I'm not sure what I should be looking for.

2017-09-21 16:58:34 GMT <eswbitto> yreg this is just a snippet its not the complete dump. https://pastebin.com/YWf1j8HP

2017-09-21 17:21:23 GMT <fwu> ppl, I need some insights related with the creation of a very simple web page. I need to add a page with the look and feel of a "normal" share page. I just need to put in the page a button (that will call a web script) and a yui calendar control to select a year + month.

2017-09-21 17:22:08 GMT <fwu> Where I can read or see an example of this kind? My bigest problem is with the framework to add yui controls.

2017-09-21 17:23:12 GMT <fwu> The other option would be to create a web page using the yui framework "by hand": Nvertheless the creation of web pages respecting the share rules is not clear to me.

2017-09-21 21:01:02 GMT <AFaust> fcorti: I don't know if you are around right now. I was wondering: Is the Zoom meeting setup to require "dial-in by phone"?

2017-09-21 21:02:28 GMT <fcorti> Good night AFaust

2017-09-21 21:03:16 GMT <fcorti> Me and Kristen we are there
