2017-10-20 05:59:00 GMT <mtsiak> hi all
2017-10-20 05:59:20 GMT <mtsiak> i have a problem connecting to webdav
2017-10-20 05:59:20 GMT <mtsiak> https://pastebin.com/i82m7yhC
2017-10-20 05:59:21 GMT <alfbot> Title: https://mydomain/alfresco/webdav HTTP Status 500 - 09200022 Failed to set cur - Pastebin.com (at pastebin.com)
2017-10-20 06:02:37 GMT <twen> good morning
2017-10-20 07:00:28 GMT <yreg> Morning everyone !
2017-10-20 07:04:21 GMT <mtsiak> what is the difference between the two urls?
2017-10-20 07:04:22 GMT <mtsiak> <endpoint-url>http://docs-staging.it.auth.gr:8080/alfresco/wcs</endpoint-url>

2017-10-20 07:04:23 GMT <twen> hey yreg
2017-10-20 07:04:48 GMT <mtsiak> /alfresco/s
2017-10-20 07:04:57 GMT <mtsiak> alfresco/wcs ?
2017-10-20 07:05:38 GMT <twen> mtsiak The problem is that you first need to login to alfresco before requesting webdav with the given token
2017-10-20 07:05:54 GMT <twen> (line 9 of your pastebin)
2017-10-20 07:05:54 GMT <AFaust> mtsiak: /s (short for /service) is the web script endpoint with HTTP Basic authentication, /wcs (short for /wcservice) is the endpoint for SSO support
2017-10-20 07:06:06 GMT <twen> and 3 too :p
2017-10-20 07:07:02 GMT <mtsiak> AFaust thanks
2017-10-20 08:19:02 GMT <Tichodroma> ServiceRegistry.getScriptServer is @deprecated. Any idea what would be a future proof way to reach it?
2017-10-20 08:21:48 GMT <yreg> Tichodroma, I was not aware of script server !
2017-10-20 08:21:57 GMT * yreg looking up what it is and what it does
2017-10-20 08:22:08 GMT <Tichodroma> getScriptService, sorry
2017-10-20 08:26:37 GMT <yreg> Tichodroma, I was just looking up latest repository code from github
2017-10-20 08:26:50 GMT <yreg> and it does not seem to be deprecated
2017-10-20 08:27:19 GMT <Tichodroma> yes, and it has been at least since 5.1
2017-10-20 08:28:00 GMT <Tichodroma> from the JavaDoc: This method has been deprecated as it would return a service that is not part of the public API. The service itself is not deprecated, but access to it via the ServiceRegistry will be removed in the future.
2017-10-20 08:28:55 GMT <Tichodroma> So if ScriptService will continue exist but not as part of the public API, what would be a way to reach it? Sadly, the @deprecated note does not say anything about this.
2017-10-20 08:29:25 GMT <Tichodroma> But maybe whoever added the deprecation forgot about this plan and things will remain like this for some time.
2017-10-20 08:30:50 GMT <yreg> Tichodroma, can you point me to the line where it is mentioned as deprecated ?
2017-10-20 08:31:24 GMT <Tichodroma> https://github.com/ecm4u/alfresco-ce-repository/blob/master/root/projects/repository/source/java/org/alfresco/service/ServiceRegistry.java#L359
2017-10-20 08:31:25 GMT <alfbot> Title: alfresco-ce-repository/ServiceRegistry.java at master · ecm4u/alfresco-ce-repository · GitHub (at github.com)
2017-10-20 08:33:34 GMT <yreg> Tichodroma, You will still be able to auto-wire the bean directly
2017-10-20 08:33:38 GMT * AFaust is so glad he does not care about ServiceRegistry at all...
2017-10-20 08:33:53 GMT <Tichodroma> or in the SVN history of https://svn.alfresco.com/repos/alfresco-open-mirror/alfresco/COMMUNITYTAGS/5.2.g/root/projects/repository/source/java/org/alfresco/service/ServiceRegistry.java
2017-10-20 08:34:02 GMT <yreg> https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-repository/commit/620e4d37d5280852df35b53a39eff44aceb19f7e
2017-10-20 08:34:03 GMT <alfbot> Title: ACE-4598: ServiceRegistry exposes services that are not part of the p… · Alfresco/alfresco-repository@620e4d3 · GitHub (at github.com)
2017-10-20 08:34:24 GMT <Tichodroma> sure, beans are always possible
2017-10-20 08:34:30 GMT <yreg> https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/ACE-4598
2017-10-20 08:35:42 GMT <Tichodroma> well, two years have passed and nothing has happend. So it looks save to just use the ServiceRegistry approach until the method is removed. I can always switch to beans later.
2017-10-20 08:54:00 GMT <yreg> @Tichodroma, usually deprecated code is only removed when moving towards a major release, I wouldn't expect them to remove that until we go to version 6.x and more like 7.x if there are enterprise customers using it the way you do.
2017-10-20 09:02:46 GMT <Tichodroma> ok
2017-10-20 10:25:42 GMT <AFaust> Anyone here used the recent Eclipse Oxygen release? Any idea where I can disable the "add curly braces at end of line even if you are currently writing a message format / log pattern" behaviour?
2017-10-20 10:28:44 GMT <yreg> AFaust, here is a better tip: Convert to IntelliJ
2017-10-20 10:40:39 GMT <AFaust> yreg: Let me think... "One feature, that can surely be switched off by a setting I have not found yet" vs. "Complete retraining of IDE-specific productivity shortcuts and having to find workarounds for weird stuff in the new IDE"
2017-10-20 10:44:57 GMT <AFaust> ...and I apparently have found that setting now
2017-10-20 10:46:29 GMT <AFaust> For whom it may concern: Preferences -> Java -> Editor -> Typing -> "Automatically insert at correct position" (that option was there before, but apparently it has become a bit more aggressive)
2017-10-20 10:54:08 GMT <mbui> Some of you guys might find this "Hacktoberfest" interesting. Basically 4 PRs on public github repos during oktober for a free t-shirt https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/
2017-10-20 10:54:09 GMT <alfbot> Title: Hacktoberfest 2017 - DigitalOcean (at hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com)
2017-10-20 10:58:31 GMT <AFaust> mbui: Doing 4 PRs is the easy part. If I'd reserve some time I could probably create a few dozen against Alfresco GitHub repos, but chances are a lot of them would not get merged in, as Alfresco has rejected various fixes / improvements in the past...
2017-10-20 10:59:53 GMT <mbui> The prerequisite is to create the PRs only. So completing the challenge is actually really easy, it's just a fun thing :)
2017-10-20 11:00:12 GMT <mbui> I instantly completed the challenge when I signed up
2017-10-20 11:25:59 GMT <douglascrp> morning
2017-10-20 11:27:34 GMT <yreg> hey douglascrp
2017-10-20 11:27:42 GMT <yreg> I replied in github
2017-10-20 11:28:33 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, yes, I saw that one
2017-10-20 11:28:35 GMT <douglascrp> tks
2017-10-20 11:28:43 GMT <douglascrp> I will try and merge it
2017-10-20 11:54:29 GMT <douglascrp> is it possible to simply change an object's version? let's say, from 1.0 to 4.0, without really changing its content?
2017-10-20 11:54:51 GMT <douglascrp> customers have uploaded some document, and Alfresco put them as 1.0
2017-10-20 11:55:08 GMT <douglascrp> some of those documents should have different version
2017-10-20 12:09:28 GMT <MorganP> Upload them via the Bulk Import and use 4 metadata files :D
2017-10-20 12:09:41 GMT <douglascrp> MorganP, :D
2017-10-20 12:09:54 GMT <MorganP> I never saw an add-on to change the default version though
2017-10-20 12:10:16 GMT <douglascrp> I am reading about version label
2017-10-20 12:10:25 GMT <douglascrp> and I will try to manipulate that via code
2017-10-20 12:21:52 GMT <douglascrp> ah, this is simple: document.properties["cm:versionLabel"] = "4.0";
2017-10-20 12:21:55 GMT <douglascrp> that works
2017-10-20 12:22:25 GMT <douglascrp> as I have never tried to manipulate the existing content's version before, I thought there would be a policy to prevent that
2017-10-20 12:25:44 GMT <douglascrp> well, it seems it is not that simple
2017-10-20 12:25:57 GMT <douglascrp> after that, if I try to upload a new version for this document, I get this: Caused by: org.alfresco.service.cmr.version.VersionServiceException: 09200010 The current version label of the node does not exist in the version history.
2017-10-20 12:26:03 GMT <douglascrp> so, back to my research
2017-10-20 12:33:18 GMT <MorganP> I'm assuming you need to have the hierarchy
2017-10-20 12:33:35 GMT <MorganP> and properties for each versions
2017-10-20 12:37:44 GMT <douglascrp> MorganP, exactly
2017-10-20 12:37:49 GMT <douglascrp> I am already working on that
2017-10-20 12:37:52 GMT <douglascrp> it seems simple
2017-10-20 13:09:48 GMT <yreg> douglascrp, I agree on your suggestion on my PR, but unfortunately I no longer have time to work on it
2017-10-20 13:10:01 GMT <yreg> feel free to play with the code as you see fit
2017-10-20 13:10:18 GMT <yreg> otherwise I will try to reserve some time for it late next week
2017-10-20 14:25:57 GMT <yreg> fcorti, I have a colleague thinking about submitting a lightning talk : "10 reasons why I did not fall for the ADF !"
2017-10-20 14:30:25 GMT <fcorti> yreg, sounds good.
2017-10-20 14:30:30 GMT <fcorti> looking forward to see it
2017-10-20 14:30:40 GMT <fcorti> (the submissions,I mean)
2017-10-20 14:30:50 GMT <fcorti> we need more lightning toalks
2017-10-20 14:31:48 GMT <yreg> He was hesitating that it would be discarded without evaluation and I am convincing him that it would also be interesting for Alfresco to get his insight and his concerns about ADF
2017-10-20 14:33:36 GMT <fcorti> we cannot accept rude or offending talks
2017-10-20 14:33:43 GMT <fcorti> opinions are always welcome
2017-10-20 14:33:48 GMT <fcorti> feedback appreciated
2017-10-20 14:34:35 GMT <fcorti> To the Selection Commitee the last word but the SC is comoposed by Alfresco AND indipendent memebers (OOTBee)
2017-10-20 14:35:19 GMT <yreg> I do not consider the talk to be offending in that wording, but it is definitely strong criticism
2017-10-20 14:35:58 GMT <yreg> fcorti, I know... ;-)
2017-10-20 14:37:14 GMT <fcorti> so probably he will find people not agree with something
2017-10-20 14:37:35 GMT <fcorti> but feedback (expecially if correct from all the points of views) are welcome
2017-10-20 14:38:42 GMT <fcorti> fair talks are welcome (fair does not mean necessarily "positive")
2017-10-20 14:39:19 GMT <yreg> He brought up the React VS Angular thing, the history of Alfresco UI clients (and frameworks and paradigms) along with few other strong arguments
2017-10-20 14:40:10 GMT <fcorti> Me I would like to see it.... the last word to the Selection Committee :-)
2017-10-20 14:40:38 GMT <fcorti> Then I will decide to be agree or not... but this another story
2017-10-20 15:00:55 GMT <AFaust> yreg: I like that lightning talk title... would definitely try to attend...
2017-10-20 15:01:20 GMT <AFaust> ...also glad that I would not have to do it instead...
2017-10-20 15:02:00 GMT <fcorti> :-D
2017-10-20 15:02:11 GMT <fcorti> Can't you see it has sense?
2017-10-20 15:02:14 GMT <AFaust> Mine would have been close to rude / offending...
2017-10-20 15:02:33 GMT <fcorti> lol!!!!
2017-10-20 15:02:50 GMT <AFaust> I mean, "rudely direct and offendingly frank"
2017-10-20 15:03:23 GMT <yreg> AFaust, that was actually a revised title, and the colleague does no longer want to make it (not rude enough - he says)
2017-10-20 15:04:03 GMT <fcorti> so... that's fine!
2017-10-20 15:04:21 GMT <fcorti> oh.. they don't wnat to do it anymore
2017-10-20 15:04:23 GMT <fcorti> noooo....
2017-10-20 15:04:25 GMT <AFaust> It may have sense to some people/customers. I have yet to meet one... and in the meantime, everyone else is held hostage / back by lack of activity on existing UI.
2017-10-20 15:06:24 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, ok, I can do that
2017-10-20 15:08:24 GMT <resplin> yreg: I would suggest a title change to "10 reasons why I am concerned about the ADF". It's more of a conversation than a final statement.
2017-10-20 15:09:03 GMT <yreg> resplin, the guy ruled my wording out for being too soft <grin>
2017-10-20 15:09:44 GMT <resplin> The challenge with a lighning talk like that is that we don't have the opportunity to engage with the audience about the concerns that are raised.
2017-10-20 15:09:50 GMT <yreg> but douglascrp, please feel free to pick that up
2017-10-20 15:10:03 GMT <resplin> I actually think the best way to have the conversation would be for him to moderate a Birds-of-a-feather session on that topic.
2017-10-20 15:10:26 GMT <resplin> We welcome the feedback and want to give him the opportunity to share his views, but don't want it to be the end of the conversation.
2017-10-20 15:14:30 GMT <xoritor> ok, so i am new here... never dealt with this before... any advice on things i should familiarize myself with before trying to implement alfresco?
2017-10-20 15:14:57 GMT * xoritor waits for the n00b roasting to start
2017-10-20 15:16:23 GMT <yreg> xoritor, start by checking out this tutorial : https://ecmarchitect.com/alfresco-developer-series

2017-10-20 15:16:59 GMT <xoritor> great thanks looking now
2017-10-20 15:17:36 GMT <yreg> then you should peek at some of the community addons to have an idea on how people develop alfresco extensions
2017-10-20 15:17:54 GMT <resplin> The backlog of Tech Talk Lives is also great.
2017-10-20 15:18:01 GMT <yreg> this page would be a great reference : https://github.com/bhagyas/awesome-alfresco
