2019-05-11 10:18:03 GMT *** CptLuxx_ is now known as CptLuxx
2019-05-11 10:44:09 GMT <gdeverlant> greetings again
2019-05-11 13:32:34 GMT <gdeverlant_> nevermind it works now
2019-05-11 13:32:54 GMT <gdeverlant_> this time it worked flawlessly
2019-05-11 13:38:14 GMT <AFaust> gdeverlant_: Good to know
2019-05-11 13:39:51 GMT <gdeverlant_> Something weird
2019-05-11 13:40:03 GMT <gdeverlant_> I tried to install the dynamic-extension amp
2019-05-11 13:41:30 GMT <gdeverlant_> it doesnt show in the share amdin toolls
2019-05-11 13:42:10 GMT <gdeverlant_> java -jar alfresco-mmt.jar install alfresco-dynamic-extensions-repo-1.7.6.amp G:\servers\ alfresco-6.1.2-ga\tomcat-9.0.19\webapps\alfresco.war -verbose
2019-05-11 13:42:26 GMT <AFaust> The Dynamic Extensions AMP is a Repository-tier extension - those will never show up in the Share Admin TOols
2019-05-11 13:43:40 GMT <gdeverlant_> but when I installed it on 5.2
2019-05-11 13:43:50 GMT <gdeverlant_> it showed in the Share Admin Tools
2019-05-11 13:44:35 GMT <gdeverlant_> how do I know it is installed ?
2019-05-11 13:52:22 GMT <gdeverlant_> ok it seems it is trying to load from Alfresco
2019-05-11 13:59:34 GMT <gdeverlant_> but there is an error

2019-05-11 17:05:15 GMT *** dfgd is now known as gdeverlant
2019-05-11 17:05:41 GMT <gdeverlant> AFaut:
2019-05-11 17:05:48 GMT <gdeverlant> AFaut: still there ?
2019-05-11 17:27:37 GMT <gdeverlant> I was able to debug the source code of the Dynamic Extension
2019-05-11 17:28:05 GMT <gdeverlant> but the files are Kotlin files ... FrameworkManager.kt and I cannot see the source code why ?

2019-05-11 17:54:31 GMT *** jelly-home is now known as jelly
2019-05-11 17:56:55 GMT <AFaust> Still here - just not paying much attention on the weekend
2019-05-11 17:57:31 GMT <AFaust> Yeah... I don't know either how you'd deal with Kotlin files.
2019-05-11 17:58:26 GMT <AFaust> I do sometimes work with the company that now maintains Dynamic Extensions, but I myself do not use it. The unnecessary use of Kotlin (and inclusion of a Kotlin library) is one of the reasons...
2019-05-11 18:04:19 GMT <gdeverlant> How do I set eclipse so that when it sees the .kt class file it maps it to the .java class
2019-05-11 18:05:52 GMT <AFaust> I would say: first install / setup Eclipse for Kotlin development
2019-05-11 18:05:53 GMT <AFaust> https://kotlinlang.org/docs/tutorials/getting-started-eclipse.html
2019-05-11 18:05:54 GMT <alfbot> Title:Getting Started with Eclipse IDE - Kotlin Programming Language (at kotlinlang.org)
2019-05-11 18:06:18 GMT <AFaust> In the hope that that enables source lookup
2019-05-11 18:06:38 GMT <gdeverlant> damn man this is getting too complicated IMHO
2019-05-11 18:07:09 GMT <gdeverlant> that's why we will always turn in circle in IT world and not advance further
2019-05-11 18:07:37 GMT <gdeverlant> having the illusion that we are evolving but instead really turning in circle
2019-05-11 18:10:48 GMT <gdeverlant> like trying to sell serverless and making other believe there is no servers anymore... it runs on pancakes in the ether
2019-05-11 18:11:24 GMT <AFaust> Well... you don't have to use Dynamic Extensions if it's too complicated.
2019-05-11 18:11:50 GMT <gdeverlant> well I love OSGi and everyone should base their project on that
2019-05-11 18:12:05 GMT <gdeverlant> I think that it is the best framework available out there
2019-05-11 18:12:15 GMT <gdeverlant> for Enterprise Applications
2019-05-11 18:12:21 GMT <AFaust> But I understand the feeling. For me it's the whole current craze about Activiti cloud / microservices in Alfresco that I find excessive / unnecessary, and makes the product way harder to use as it should be.
2019-05-11 18:12:45 GMT <AFaust> The circles we do in UI (Angular / ADF) until there is an actually usable state is also annoying as heck.
2019-05-11 18:13:08 GMT <gdeverlant> 10 years ago I predicted that all giants will port their CMS on OSGi
2019-05-11 18:13:13 GMT <gdeverlant> and now it is reality
2019-05-11 18:13:18 GMT <AFaust> Yeah, but pushing OSGi into a product which has not been designed for OSGi from the ground up is just asking for trouble.
2019-05-11 18:13:37 GMT <gdeverlant> well not really because Liferay did it
2019-05-11 18:13:51 GMT <gdeverlant> and on the way they fixed and contributed a lot to OSGi
2019-05-11 18:14:17 GMT <gdeverlant> Liferay is still not OSGi 100% like Alfesco it is based on tomcat
2019-05-11 18:14:18 GMT <AFaust> Oh... bad example. I used to work at a company that was Liferay partner, and that software was the biggest pile of crap I have seen in my professional life so far
2019-05-11 18:14:38 GMT <gdeverlant> but they are moving away on OSGi completely
2019-05-11 18:14:56 GMT <AFaust> Moving crap from Tomcat to OSGi still leaves you with crap.
2019-05-11 18:14:59 GMT <gdeverlant> lol you are too harsh
2019-05-11 18:15:26 GMT <gdeverlant> how long since you touched Liferay?
2019-05-11 18:15:47 GMT <AFaust> I certainly can be once an opinion has set in and been proven (at least for me)
2019-05-11 18:16:01 GMT <AFaust> Actually had a look again last year as a customer was asking for an integration.
2019-05-11 18:16:01 GMT <gdeverlant> now it is way more better
2019-05-11 18:16:08 GMT <gdeverlant> which version ?
2019-05-11 18:16:38 GMT <AFaust> Most of what I have seen from the core hadn't really changed that much...
2019-05-11 18:16:55 GMT <gdeverlant> if you go version 7 and up you will see a lot changed
2019-05-11 18:17:25 GMT <gdeverlant> but yes it was a big pile of Monolith crap
2019-05-11 18:17:38 GMT <gdeverlant> now you can just use the beauty of OSGi
2019-05-11 18:17:56 GMT <gdeverlant> it is perfect if you are skilled in OSGi of course
2019-05-11 18:19:14 GMT <AFaust> I have since deleted everything related to Liferay from my system, so difficult to say what version it was. But as far as I remember, a new major had just come out and I was looking at the latest version.
2019-05-11 18:19:47 GMT <gdeverlant> which parts you hated the most ?
2019-05-11 18:24:59 GMT <AFaust> Code quality, hard-coded assumptions / conditions not fitting production use cases (i.e. checking for request URL host name "localhost" to allow access to some admin functionality), laughable permission models (have seen a couple of information leaks at one customer intranet portal), laughable CMIS integration with external repositories (no support for any form of custom metadata)
2019-05-11 18:28:48 GMT <AFaust> I'll be leaving now (though PC will stay online) - groceries run before the shop closes...
2019-05-11 18:48:05 GMT <gdeverlant> ok
2019-05-11 18:48:56 GMT <gdeverlant> let me know when you back
2019-05-11 21:39:25 GMT <gdeverlant> you back?
