Daily Log for #alfresco

2019-08-29 07:40:52 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> @Thijs @lars created a branch on the SDK fixing the issue I was having - do you have any info/tips on running the non-published maven plugin version (2.0.1)

2019-08-29 07:40:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> gradle* plugin

2019-08-29 07:41:11 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> I hope to dump the Alfresco SDK for good this time and be done with it

2019-08-29 07:43:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> @bhagyas he created a multi-config-project branch

2019-08-29 07:44:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> but for now, he only added a test to reproduce your issue

2019-08-29 07:44:15 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> yp

2019-08-29 07:44:25 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> so it is not fixed there yet

2019-08-29 07:44:28 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> ah okay, so it's not fixed yet?

2019-08-29 07:44:29 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> got it

2019-08-29 07:44:32 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> I'll try to fix it

2019-08-29 07:44:51 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> ok

2019-08-29 07:44:53 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> I had the plugin checked out to work on it, but didn't get to invest much time learning the code base

2019-08-29 07:45:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> we would be thrilled if we got some external contribution

2019-08-29 07:45:29 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> ^_^

2019-08-29 07:45:52 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> I'd love to, if I can get this to work

2019-08-29 07:45:54 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> 😄

2019-08-29 07:46:00 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> you can publish the plugin to your mavenlocal

2019-08-29 07:46:31 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> or, like we usually do, is use the reproduction test to debug, fix it

2019-08-29 07:46:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> and then publish locally and use it in another project to validate

2019-08-29 07:47:33 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> yeah

2019-08-29 07:47:40 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> I'm going to try that

2019-08-29 07:47:51 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> for now, I think fixing the deprecation warnings might just make it work

2019-08-29 07:48:09 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> 🤞🏽

2019-08-29 07:50:07 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> ./gradlew publishToMavenLocal

2019-08-29 07:52:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> got it

2019-08-29 08:03:32 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> @bhagyas It should work if you stick with Gradle 4.10.3

2019-08-29 08:22:43 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> ah okay

2019-08-29 08:23:01 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> are you using gradle wrapper?

2019-08-29 08:32:43 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> yeah

2019-08-29 08:32:48 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> or not

2019-08-29 08:32:53 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> nope, I'm using just gradle

2019-08-29 08:33:33 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> well, in your project folder, execute:

2019-08-29 08:34:02 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> I found some intersting fixes on other gradle plugin projects

2019-08-29 08:34:03 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> https://github.com/apollographql/apollo-android/commit/97ec9c568ca4d40294a68da0735bd4af220b4191

2019-08-29 08:34:05 GMT <alfbot> Title:Modernize build and fix deprecated gradle API usages (#1476) · apollographql/apollo-android@97ec9c5 · GitHub (at github.com)

2019-08-29 08:34:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> gradle wrapper --gradle-version 4.10.3

2019-08-29 08:34:52 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> then you should be able to use the local ./gradlew

2019-08-29 08:35:01 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> as a temporary workaround

2019-08-29 08:48:55 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> got it

2019-08-29 11:33:09 GMT <AFaust> angelborroy: Isn't there a server-root WAR for the 6.1 release? Or is that still using the same as in 6.0.1?

2019-08-29 11:33:31 GMT <angelborroy> Good question

2019-08-29 11:33:37 GMT <angelborroy> Let me see

2019-08-29 11:35:03 GMT <AFaust> At least I did not find a newer one on artifacts.alfresco.com, but maybe the artifact ID has changed (again)

2019-08-29 11:35:16 GMT <angelborroy> 6.0.1

2019-08-29 11:35:19 GMT <angelborroy> There is no other

2019-08-29 11:35:53 GMT <AFaust> Oh... Alfresco Search Service 1.4.0 has been built / published on Nexus yesterday...

2019-08-29 11:36:03 GMT <angelborroy> Yep

2019-08-29 11:36:09 GMT <angelborroy> We’re releasing these days

2019-08-29 11:36:34 GMT <AFaust> Still going to stick to latest 1.3.0.x for this customer that I am migrating from 3.4 to 6.1...

2019-08-29 11:36:45 GMT <angelborroy> No relevant news from 1.3.06

2019-08-29 11:37:07 GMT <angelborroy> Sharding has been improved and some other fixes

2019-08-29 11:37:11 GMT <angelborroy> But no new features at all

2019-08-29 11:39:21 GMT <angelborroy> Be careful with 1.3.0.6 / 1.4, as it’s SSL by default

2019-08-29 11:39:28 GMT <AFaust> Oh wow... I never thought I'd be downloading a 3.4 WAR ever again, but for the upcoming test migration I want to have every reasonably relevant intermediary version handy..

2019-08-29 11:40:08 GMT <AFaust> Well, that customer is running on Windows, so no Docker at all, and only explicit config instead of some magic defaults...

2019-08-29 11:40:50 GMT <angelborroy> btw, I added a section in https://github.com/Alfresco/SearchServices/tree/master/search-services

2019-08-29 11:40:51 GMT <alfbot> Title:SearchServices/search-services at master · Alfresco/SearchServices · GitHub (at github.com)

2019-08-29 11:41:08 GMT <angelborroy> As default Docker Image cannot be built from Windows

2019-08-29 11:41:11 GMT <AFaust> Also will be interesting to set up + switch back to all the legacy local transformers for this release.

2019-08-29 11:41:17 GMT <angelborroy> “Building Docker Image from Window”

2019-08-29 11:41:46 GMT <AFaust> Whoever voluntarily runs a production system off of Docker on WIndows is insane...

2019-08-29 11:42:17 GMT <angelborroy> It was related with some members in the team, that are using Windows for developing

2019-08-29 11:42:28 GMT <AFaust> Honestly, I would very much prefer to Alfresco to finally have the guts to say: F**k Windows, we are no longer supporting it, so that customers don't get the idea it is a viable option...

2019-08-29 11:42:38 GMT <angelborroy> Agree

2019-08-29 11:43:04 GMT <AFaust> I am also using Windows for development, but it should be made clear that this is more like "expert mode" and not something that should be done for production.

2019-08-29 11:43:38 GMT <AFaust> Also can't wait for MS SQL support to die...

2019-08-29 11:43:45 GMT <angelborroy> :D

2019-08-29 11:45:04 GMT <AFaust> Same for Oracle support, but unfortunately that is an even larger customer base that would need re-education and some brain un-washing to realise it is a crap DB...

2019-08-29 11:48:37 GMT <AFaust> Did anyone bother to try the in-memory message broker for more than just dev / test environment, maybe even in an Enterprise production environment?

2019-08-29 11:49:23 GMT <angelborroy> What “in-memory message broker”?

2019-08-29 11:49:44 GMT <angelborroy> Kafka has been discarded (don ask me why) and we are tied to ActiveMQ from now

2019-08-29 11:50:40 GMT <AFaust> Referring to this: https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-sdk/blob/master/archetypes/alfresco-allinone-archetype/src/main/resources/archetype-resources/__rootArtifactId__-platform-docker/src/main/docker/alfresco-global.properties#L82

2019-08-29 11:50:41 GMT <alfbot> Title:alfresco-sdk/alfresco-global.properties at master · Alfresco/alfresco-sdk · GitHub (at github.com)

2019-08-29 11:52:01 GMT <angelborroy> It’s used only for testing/development purposes

2019-08-29 11:52:05 GMT <AFaust> It has worked so far in some of my local dev integration tests runs with 6.1 Docker (without disabling events / messaging subsystem), but I am considering to set this up for this customer for real, because who cares for ActiveMQ, they have no need for this at all..

2019-08-29 11:53:19 GMT <AFaust> Yeah, I am not asking what Alfresco thinks about this. I already know the company is hyped on this ActiveMQ bloat... The question was more for other people in this channel if they have considered / tried to use this for reals, not just what Alfresco "intends" it to be used for.

2019-08-29 13:18:31 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> @Thijs fixed it!

2019-08-29 13:18:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> some unit test code needs to be upgraded to work

2019-08-29 13:18:52 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> but im going to commit the changes to my fork

2019-08-29 13:21:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> awesome, I can't wait

2019-08-29 13:32:53 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> @Thijs https://github.com/bhagyas/alfresco-gradle-sdk/commit/cc70b5e93f519432fccb6d054bd4d2b56513eaa3

2019-08-29 13:32:54 GMT <alfbot> Title:Adding support for merging sourceSets and dropping support for Gradle… · bhagyas/alfresco-gradle-sdk@cc70b5e · GitHub (at github.com)

2019-08-29 13:59:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> @bhagyas Thanks. We'd have to check if dropping 4.x support is acceptable already, and if it is avoidable.

2019-08-29 14:11:26 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> The FileTreeInternal is no longer allowed from 4.x

2019-08-29 14:11:37 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> I think dropping 4.x might be the best way forward

2019-08-29 14:12:02 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> (also 6.0 is also on its way, and it would even break even more)

2019-08-29 14:12:24 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> What I found was that dropping 4.x can lead to less code on the plugin, which I think is good

2019-08-29 14:15:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> Now I can successfully build the repo module from the gradle sdk

2019-08-29 14:15:22 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> Going to see how to build the Share module

2019-08-29 14:15:51 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> OK. As soon as you send in a PR, we can start reviewing it, and possibly discuss further there

2019-08-29 14:16:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> I'm already happy somebody managed to work himself into the project

2019-08-29 14:16:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> I'll send in the PR right now, to the branch @lars created

2019-08-29 14:16:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> ok

2019-08-29 14:17:15 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> The unit test for the emptyAmpProject seems to break, since a context constructor is removed from 5.x

2019-08-29 14:17:20 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> so I commented it out

2019-08-29 14:17:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> I'll have a look
