Daily Log for #alfresco

2018-09-27 08:26:41 GMT <dgradecak> hi angelborroy, regarding the discussion about "simple modules" and the folder modules/platform ...

2018-09-27 08:27:08 GMT <dgradecak> yesterday I added a permission the the catalina.policy in order to make that work with PostResources

2018-09-27 08:27:11 GMT <dgradecak> so mainly this:

2018-09-27 08:27:12 GMT <dgradecak> RUN echo 'grant codeBase "file:/usr/local/tomcat/modules/platform/-" {permission java.lang.reflect.ReflectPermission "suppressAccessChecks";};' >> conf/catalina.policy

2018-09-27 08:27:29 GMT <dgradecak> and the modules run as if they are in webinf/lib

2018-09-27 08:32:07 GMT <angelborroy> hi

2018-09-27 08:32:24 GMT <angelborroy> that’s a side (and dark) configuration

2018-09-27 08:32:39 GMT <angelborroy> I’d not include that in default configuration

2018-09-27 08:32:52 GMT <angelborroy> But I’m going to include a Wiki Page for that

2018-09-27 08:33:18 GMT <angelborroy> What’s the difference between modifying dinamically the access by using reflection and this configuration?

2018-09-27 08:36:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> well, I have a couple of modules and I am doing a new installation with docker for a customer. Therfore for each new install I do not want to "up" my new docker comose but I rather use the mounted drive where I drop my "jar" modules

2018-09-27 08:36:58 GMT <angelborroy> And this is why you need that "grant"?

2018-09-27 08:37:00 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> therfore seems the security manager when using a folder from outside the web application (mainly ouside webinf/lib) would complain about security acces

2018-09-27 08:37:10 GMT <angelborroy> interesting

2018-09-27 08:37:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> yes on that folder modules/platform for instance

2018-09-27 08:37:31 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> and than all jars can be normally loaded with the standard alfresco.xml configuration

2018-09-27 08:37:37 GMT <angelborroy> so you’ve also included “alfresco.xml” configuration in

2018-09-27 08:37:40 GMT <angelborroy> right ;-)

2018-09-27 08:37:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> indeed

2018-09-27 08:38:25 GMT <angelborroy> As I’m always using AMPs in my customers, this approach is not as good as I’d wish

2018-09-27 08:38:32 GMT <angelborroy> But it’s a nice approach, congrats

2018-09-27 08:42:33 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> well you saw what thay wrote about amps ... mainly that is deprecated (hm)

2018-09-27 08:42:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> I am using jar as (amp modules) for a decade

2018-09-27 08:43:15 GMT <angelborroy> https://github.com/jpotts/share-site-creators

2018-09-27 08:43:16 GMT <alfbot> Title:GitHub - jpotts/share-site-creators: An Alfresco add-on that limits site creation to those in a specific group. (at github.com)

2018-09-27 08:43:21 GMT <angelborroy> What about external modules?

2018-09-27 08:43:29 GMT <angelborroy> Are you re-compiling / re-packaing them?

2018-09-27 08:48:17 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> not sure I understand

2018-09-27 08:48:28 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> aha using external modules

2018-09-27 08:48:34 GMT <angelborroy> I’m using modules from the Community, as that one from Jeff Potts

2018-09-27 08:48:36 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> no I use them as they are provided

2018-09-27 08:48:45 GMT <angelborroy> Ok, so you are using AMPs

2018-09-27 08:48:51 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> so if someone has somehting interesting and it is an amp I use it

2018-09-27 08:49:19 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> I am just not creating "amps" my self when working on project, mainly it is an amp but inside a jar of course

2018-09-27 08:49:31 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> for share too

2018-09-27 08:49:37 GMT <angelborroy> This is why I said your approach is not for me

2018-09-27 08:49:53 GMT <angelborroy> I have a selection of AMPs from the Community to use in every Alfresco installation

2018-09-27 08:49:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> well ... I do that for an easier development, and always have an assembly

2018-09-27 08:50:16 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> if ever I need to provide an amp for someone, but rather not 😉

2018-09-27 09:47:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Arun> Hi @Francesco Corti

2018-09-27 09:49:17 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Arun> is it possible implement barcode scanner and document scanner in alfresco process service using custom stencil.

2018-09-27 10:10:16 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Hi @Arun, not natively. You might need third party integrations.

2018-09-27 10:20:25 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Arun> Can you suggest any third party integrations to support with APS

2018-09-27 10:54:44 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Sorry, I usually used a different approach in the past projects I did and I'm not aware about any (but it doesn't mean they don't exist).

2018-09-27 10:55:01 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Let's hear here, if someone else has suggestions.

2018-09-27 12:22:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <uvukasinovic> I am using APS 1.9. And yesterday I had very weird problem. I added new item in my stencil and now I am not able to put that item in my form, because I have validation problem with very obscure error message. I have also message in Dev Console: 'Plugin need a stencilset which is not loaded'. There is fixed task, but I have similar problem: https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/ACTIVITI-247

2018-09-27 12:23:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <uvukasinovic> if someone knows a solution for this, please let me know 😃

2018-09-27 13:31:25 GMT <alfresco-discord> <uvukasinovic> .... Fixed. Whenever I put new field in the form, parent of that field is generated and id is "container1". If I add two fields, I have id conflict.

2018-09-27 21:08:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Shibak Tensai> Is anyone able to get to this site?

2018-09-27 21:08:12 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Shibak Tensai> http://licensing.meteorite.bi/

2018-09-27 21:08:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Shibak Tensai> Trying to setup aaar and its wanting a license. I've read the documentation that states that if this error occurs then go here to get a free license.
