Daily Log for #alfresco

2019-08-20 08:20:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MartinM> cool stuff

2019-08-20 08:43:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> Got some more stuff coming, like the filename parsing to detect webscript extensions, and host networking mode on swagger docker with mounting

2019-08-20 08:53:43 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> Generated via Swagger gen

2019-08-20 09:00:47 GMT <AFaust> Somewhat disturbed by the URL pattern there. I expected either resendInvites or resend-invites, but resendinvites is just plain cruel...

2019-08-20 09:01:26 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> @Loftux 😛

2019-08-20 09:04:25 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> It's all because of Brexit, we need to obscure any method to get invited again once they leave 😬

2019-08-20 09:07:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> while I can't name who wrote the name due to collective ownership and responsibility, I'm going to hold him personally responsible for this naming mishap 😛

2019-08-20 09:12:09 GMT <angelborroy> AFaust I’m testing OOTB Tools with 6.2

2019-08-20 09:12:17 GMT <angelborroy> It looks like there are some problems

2019-08-20 09:12:23 GMT <angelborroy> Do you want me to raise some issues?

2019-08-20 09:13:01 GMT <AFaust> For things that can be considered "stable" (i.e. "not likely to change") in 6.2 EA, sure, raise them issues...

2019-08-20 09:14:13 GMT <angelborroy> btw great stuff that “Command Console”, congrats!

2019-08-20 09:21:19 GMT <angelborroy> Are you using JAR or AMP deployment?

2019-08-20 09:21:29 GMT <angelborroy> It looks like Scheduled Jobs doesn’t work also with 6.1

2019-08-20 09:24:36 GMT <AFaust> AMP deployment, always.

2019-08-20 09:25:25 GMT <AFaust> I mean, for proper deployments. In some "quick-test" deployments, I may use JAR deployment from time to time...

2019-08-20 09:39:33 GMT <angelborroy> It looks like AMP works

2019-08-20 09:39:44 GMT <angelborroy> But JAR deployment doesn’t work for Schedule Jobs

2019-08-20 09:42:07 GMT <AFaust> Great... For what reason would I expect a JAR module produced by (official) SDK 4 to work.

2019-08-20 09:42:37 GMT <angelborroy> It works fine also with 6.2

2019-08-20 09:44:10 GMT <AFaust> Is it only Scheduled Jobs that does not work with JAR deployment, or are other tools affected too? (Having some issues with my local test system not spinning up now for some reason to do my own checks)

2019-08-20 09:44:39 GMT <angelborroy> At least, Scheduled Jobs, but I can make a deeper test if you want me to

2019-08-20 09:46:02 GMT <AFaust> If you already have it running, that would be cool. Have to figure out why my instance won't connect to the local DB today...

2019-08-20 09:46:20 GMT <AFaust> If JAR does not work, looks like something went wrong in our review process...

2019-08-20 09:47:09 GMT <angelborroy> I’ll test it later

2019-08-20 09:53:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> 🙃 I reviewed the code, and tested the amp with 6.0, sorry for not going deeper

2019-08-20 09:55:25 GMT <AFaust> Argh... looks like my postgres is being real difficult today. Service won't (re-)start. Well, about time I finally do an upgrade. Let's hope I can save some of the (dev) tablespaces...

2019-08-20 10:13:31 GMT <angelborroy> https://github.com/OrderOfTheBee/ootbee-support-tools/issues/145

2019-08-20 10:13:32 GMT <alfbot> Title:Using JAR Deployment produces errors in some options for Alfresco Admin Web Console · Issue #145 · OrderOfTheBee/ootbee-support-tools · GitHub (at github.com)

2019-08-20 10:24:37 GMT <AFaust> Ehmm... angelborroy: Did you remember to deploy the required 3rd party libraries?

2019-08-20 10:24:47 GMT <angelborroy> Nope

2019-08-20 10:24:59 GMT <angelborroy> :)

2019-08-20 10:25:04 GMT <AFaust> I mean, that is by definition the downside of the JAR deployment model - every user has to take care of properly deploying dependencies.

2019-08-20 10:25:09 GMT <angelborroy> I know, I know

2019-08-20 10:25:22 GMT <angelborroy> I didn’t know that there were 3rd party libraries tobh

2019-08-20 10:25:46 GMT <AFaust> To be fair, we currently do not document those 3rd party libs.

2019-08-20 10:26:12 GMT <AFaust> I mean, we do not document how to deploy JARs at all...

2019-08-20 10:26:24 GMT <angelborroy> I see the pom.xml now

2019-08-20 10:26:53 GMT <AFaust> But we clearly state "care must be taken to also include all of the third party dependencies"

2019-08-20 10:27:45 GMT <angelborroy> For the people reading documentation, that should be fine

2019-08-20 10:28:00 GMT <angelborroy> But probably including a reference to “pom.xml” to identify dependencies could help

2019-08-20 10:30:09 GMT <AFaust> Yes. Obvious things must clearly be documented. After all, in every project there is also a documentation of "here is how you build with Maven", where I always read between the lines: "in case you cannot be bothered to remember this simple command or read the Maven documentation"

2019-08-20 10:31:46 GMT <AFaust> FYI: Not even being sarcastic there. We / I missed that bit when updating the README, and I am reminded again to never forget documenting, even if I may find it obvious / "common knowledge"...

2019-08-20 10:34:15 GMT <angelborroy> I documented it on the ticket

2019-08-20 10:34:41 GMT <angelborroy> Just for people like me, that need “donkeys guide”

2019-08-20 10:34:48 GMT <AFaust> I was just about to comment and potentially rename the issue to "Create JAR deployment for Dummies section"

2019-08-20 10:36:52 GMT <angelborroy> “Creater JAR Deployment for Alfresco Engineers” should be an option :D

2019-08-20 13:47:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> now the swagger-gen supports schemas and auth!

2019-08-20 20:30:04 GMT <AFaust> The web script runtime defines a "session" root scope object for web script controllers (undocumented for some reason), but of course that object is effectively without functionality as somewhere along the chain of wrapping a HTTP session into a web script session, a crucial session factory is missing / hard-coded to null.

2019-08-20 20:31:24 GMT <AFaust> Wondering how I did not stumble over that root scope object earlier, given my various script engine experiments... might have just overlooked.
