2019-04-11 07:23:01 GMT <Tichodroma> On https://community.alfresco.com/docs/DOC-8102-alfresco-community-edition-201901-ga-release-notes the SCM takg link for "Alfresco Content Repository 6.1.2-ga" points to https://community.alfresco.com/external-link.jspa?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2FAlfresco%2Facs-community-deployment%2Freleases%2Ftag%2F2.2.0 which is a totally different project.

2019-04-11 07:23:05 GMT <alfbot> Title:Alfresco Community Edition 201901 GA Release Notes | Alfresco Community (at community.alfresco.com)

2019-04-11 07:23:16 GMT <Tichodroma> I fail to find the tag 6.1.2 on https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-repository/

2019-04-11 07:23:17 GMT <alfbot> Title:GitHub - Alfresco/alfresco-repository: Metadata and content storage for Alfresco Content Services (Community and Enterprise) (at github.com)

2019-04-11 07:23:41 GMT <Tichodroma> Is this the correct repository to look in?

2019-04-11 07:24:09 GMT <Tichodroma> Background: I try to clone all Git repositories that make up the latest GA release of Alfresco CE.

2019-04-11 07:29:02 GMT <angelborroy> Tichodroma This one

2019-04-11 07:29:02 GMT <angelborroy> https://github.com/Alfresco/acs-community-packaging

2019-04-11 07:29:03 GMT <alfbot> Title:GitHub - Alfresco/acs-community-packaging: Packaging of Docker containers, war file and zip for Alfresco Content Services (Community) (at github.com)

2019-04-11 07:30:15 GMT <Tichodroma> Hm, let me check.

2019-04-11 07:31:27 GMT <Tichodroma> That contains the war, not the sources.

2019-04-11 07:33:01 GMT <angelborroy> What sources are you lookin for?

2019-04-11 07:33:32 GMT <Tichodroma> I am a little bit confused about how to build ACS from the sources. There are projects like https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-remote-api, https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-data-model and https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-repository. Which of those builds the alfresco.war and on which other projects does it depend?

2019-04-11 07:33:34 GMT <alfbot> Title:GitHub - Alfresco/alfresco-data-model (at github.com)

2019-04-11 07:33:59 GMT <angelborroy> https://github.com/Alfresco/acs-community-packaging

2019-04-11 07:34:00 GMT <alfbot> Title:GitHub - Alfresco/acs-community-packaging: Packaging of Docker containers, war file and zip for Alfresco Content Services (Community) (at github.com)

2019-04-11 07:34:05 GMT <angelborroy> This project is building the WAR

2019-04-11 07:34:31 GMT <Tichodroma> I will try that then.

2019-04-11 07:39:28 GMT <Tichodroma> fails: [ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-dependency-plugin:3.1.1:unpack (default-cli) on project alfresco-public-javadoc: Unable to find/resolve artifact.: Could not find artifact com.docflex:docflex-javadoc:zip:1.6.1 in alfresco-public (https://artifacts.alfresco.com/nexus/content/groups/public)

2019-04-11 07:40:48 GMT <angelborroy> I guess that building scripts are not public

2019-04-11 07:42:17 GMT <Tichodroma> so this repository can not be used to build Alfresco. This was reported before defcon and I remember that Ole wanted to take care.

2019-04-11 07:42:37 GMT <angelborroy> You can wait… if this depends on Ole

2019-04-11 07:43:00 GMT <angelborroy> Let me know if I can find some information from ACS Team

2019-04-11 07:43:51 GMT <Tichodroma> I am not sure whom to ask. But I'd really like to be able to build ACS CE from the sources.

2019-04-11 07:44:15 GMT <angelborroy> I’ll tell you later if I get some reply

2019-04-11 07:44:37 GMT <Tichodroma> thanks

2019-04-11 08:01:08 GMT <Tichodroma> I am trying to build tag alfresco-repository-7.43 of https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-repository.git which should be the version contained in the current 201901 GA release. The result:

2019-04-11 08:01:10 GMT <alfbot> Title:GitHub - Alfresco/alfresco-repository: Metadata and content storage for Alfresco Content Services (Community and Enterprise) (at github.com)

2019-04-11 08:01:12 GMT <Tichodroma> Tests run: 3187, Failures: 4, Errors: 1974, Skipped: 7

2019-04-11 08:04:14 GMT <Tichodroma> example for one of many failing tests: https://bpaste.net/show/6710576a617c

2019-04-11 08:04:15 GMT <alfbot> Title:show at bpaste (at bpaste.net)

2019-04-11 08:04:19 GMT <Tichodroma> My questions:

2019-04-11 08:05:42 GMT <Tichodroma> 1) Are the versions listed in the pom.xml of acs-community-packaging tag acs-community-packaging-6.1.2-ga the versions of the modules that make up this GA? https://bpaste.net/show/bff639f195f1

2019-04-11 08:05:43 GMT <alfbot> Title:show at bpaste (at bpaste.net)

2019-04-11 08:06:08 GMT <Tichodroma> 2) Is anybody able to build alfresco-repository-7.43?

2019-04-11 08:06:59 GMT <Tichodroma> 3) Is anybody able to build 201901 GA CE from source to WAR without having access to internal build tools and/or scripts that only Alfresco employees can use?

2019-04-11 08:12:48 GMT <Tichodroma> It looks like a simple `mvn package` is not enough. Many tests fail like this: https://bpaste.net/show/acc7375e6001

2019-04-11 08:12:49 GMT <alfbot> Title:show at bpaste (at bpaste.net)

2019-04-11 08:13:20 GMT <Tichodroma> Is there any database setup required to run the tests?

2019-04-11 08:13:43 GMT <angelborroy> Tichodroma I have no the details, I’m asking to ACS Team

2019-04-11 08:13:49 GMT <angelborroy> But they can take a while to reply

2019-04-11 08:14:11 GMT <Tichodroma> hours? days?

2019-04-11 08:14:24 GMT <angelborroy> If i knew it, I’ll tell you

2019-04-11 08:14:33 GMT <angelborroy> But I don’t know

2019-04-11 08:14:36 GMT <Tichodroma> :(

2019-04-11 08:15:34 GMT <Tichodroma> It is sad the the code of Alfresco CE is available on Github but that it seems to be buildable only by Alfresco engineers. This should be mentioned in the Github README.md

2019-04-11 08:15:46 GMT <angelborroy> agree

2019-04-11 08:27:49 GMT <Tichodroma> It looks like a simple `mvn test` is not enough. A PostgreSQL database must exist and the connection parameters must be set as -D options for Maven. So hopefully this is only a problem of incomplete documentation.

2019-04-11 08:52:20 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> @Tichodroma also @sbennett has a hand in this afaik, with acs-community-packaging, if you comment out the javadoc action in the pom.xml file i was able to build and generate the wars, jars

2019-04-11 08:52:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> the tool they are using for javadoc isnt available afaik

2019-04-11 08:53:33 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> but i agree its not the best, hopefully alfresco will get this sorted

2019-04-11 08:57:09 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> and its not encouraging for prospective enterprise users, who ive heard from in regards trying out the platform with community

2019-04-11 09:11:37 GMT <Tichodroma> fyi https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-remote-api/issues/195

2019-04-11 09:11:38 GMT <alfbot> Title:RemoteFileFolderLoaderTest hangs · Issue #195 · Alfresco/alfresco-remote-api · GitHub (at github.com)

2019-04-11 09:13:01 GMT <Tichodroma> digicat: I will try this, ty

2019-04-11 09:17:30 GMT <Tichodroma> acs-community-packaging-6.1.2-ga can be build locally if <module>public-javadoc</module> is removed from the pom.xml. But as expected, this project does not contain any Java source, it fetches the JARs as dependencies.

2019-04-11 09:18:45 GMT <Tichodroma> So I still face the problem of building the JARs of the modules from sources. This works fine for alfresco-core and alfresco-data-model. But so far I have been unable to build alfresco-remote-api and alfresco-repository locally from the sources.

2019-04-11 09:21:01 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> @Tichodroma good point

2019-04-11 09:41:15 GMT <Tichodroma> fyi https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-repository/issues/397

2019-04-11 09:41:17 GMT <alfbot> Title:Unit tests hang: java.sql.SQLException: Data source is closed · Issue #397 · Alfresco/alfresco-repository · GitHub (at github.com)

2019-04-11 09:42:01 GMT <angelborroy> hope they take this one

2019-04-11 09:43:27 GMT <Tichodroma> Is GitHub the correct place to report issues? Or should I open a Jira ticket at https://issues.alfresco.com/ ?

2019-04-11 09:44:02 GMT <angelborroy> why are you using “lutz” as db user?

2019-04-11 09:44:17 GMT <angelborroy> ah, ok I see

2019-04-11 09:44:23 GMT <Tichodroma> :)

2019-04-11 09:44:36 GMT <Tichodroma> should not matter as long as the DB and Maven use the same credentials

2019-04-11 09:44:52 GMT <angelborroy> yep

2019-04-11 11:35:12 GMT <angelborroy> Tichodroma this is the ticket https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/REPO-4320

2019-04-11 11:35:42 GMT <angelborroy> You can follow the link to track the progress

2019-04-11 14:06:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> morning

2019-04-11 14:06:39 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> does anyone have any idea about any debug I can look at in order to try to indentify this timeout error for the upload new version action?

2019-04-11 14:07:12 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> right now, I am using an apache acting as a proxy, and the result is the same.... I got no response from the server, even though the update is finished correctly

2019-04-11 15:09:43 GMT <angelborroy> @douglascrp is it an ubuntu based installation?

2019-04-11 15:09:49 GMT <angelborroy> by using Loftux scripts?

2019-04-11 20:21:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> @angel.borroy you let me curious now 😄

2019-04-11 20:21:57 GMT <alfresco-discord> <angel.borroy> Nope

2019-04-11 20:22:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <angel.borroy> Just trying to help

2019-04-11 20:22:33 GMT <alfresco-discord> <angel.borroy> It’s late here, I’ll take a look again tomorrow
