2019-10-11 11:17:19 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> what would be the best way to detect an assignment change on a task in APS 1.9? Usually I would do that in java code checking, in later versions (activiti/flowable) I think there is a new "event" to check
2019-10-11 11:17:43 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> @yreg I guess you could know that?
2019-10-11 11:36:52 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> @dgradecak not sure if org.activiti.engine.delegate.event.ActivitiEventType#TASK_ASSIGNED would fire upon each and every assignments
2019-10-11 11:37:20 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> as far as I remember not, but will check that
2019-10-11 11:37:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> anyway, I guess you could setup a TuntimeEventListener and breakpoint to check which events are thrown when you assign 😉
2019-10-11 11:37:49 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> sure
2019-10-11 11:37:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> the question is not only for assign
2019-10-11 11:38:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> but for a "property" change also, like due date for instance
2019-10-11 11:38:46 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> I might be mistaken, but I think new events have been added in flowable 6 to cover those
2019-10-11 11:41:46 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> there is something for entity updated
2019-10-11 11:41:54 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> but you need to do the filtering yourself
2019-10-11 11:42:00 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> check this sample : https://github.com/cijujoseph/activiti-examples/blob/master/activiti-custom-email-extension/src/main/java/com/customer/bpm/common/bean/CustomTaskAssignmentListener.java
2019-10-11 11:42:01 GMT <alfbot> Title:activiti-examples/CustomTaskAssignmentListener.java at master · cijujoseph/activiti-examples · GitHub (at github.com)
2019-10-11 11:42:11 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> the whole repo is full of useful snippets
2019-10-11 11:48:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> seems it has useful things in it, indeed
2019-10-11 12:15:19 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mbui> AFaust: You mentioned earlier that Alfresco SDK has nothing to do with an upgrade, i.e. you can upgrade to 6.x and still use SDK 2. However, when browsing the supported platform stack 5.2.x requires SDK 3 and 6.1 requires SDK 4. Are those simply recommendations/supported or won't the customizations work?
2019-10-11 13:05:31 GMT <alfresco-discord> <forgiven> Hello all! I am having 15gb log files from tomcat access. I'm thinking debugging must be turned on. How do i find out?
2019-10-11 13:07:19 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> tomcat access is not related to debugging at all
2019-10-11 13:08:36 GMT <alfresco-discord> <forgiven> huh? it's tomcat access logs from alfresco install
2019-10-11 13:09:53 GMT <alfresco-discord> <forgiven> oh i see what your saying...
2019-10-11 13:10:32 GMT <alfresco-discord> <forgiven> so then how do i find out why these log files are so huge? Is there a way to turn off tomcat access?
2019-10-11 13:12:40 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Hans> in server.xml comment out <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.AccessLogValve"....
2019-10-11 13:12:44 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Hans> and restart
2019-10-11 13:15:06 GMT <alfresco-discord> <forgiven> yea just checked this and see that valve is already commented out?
2019-10-11 13:17:11 GMT <alfresco-discord> <forgiven> the comment out was not typed right 🙂 Completed the comment out and restarted alfresco
2019-10-11 14:44:37 GMT <AFaust> mbui: What I meant was: You can upgrade your Alfresco installation to Alfresco 6.1 and deploy your customisations on it, without having to upgrade to SDK 4, because your customisations if built correctly on earlier SDKs and provided they do not touch any APIs that have changed (Quartz) should still be compatible.
2019-10-11 14:44:58 GMT <AFaust> E.g. we built OOTBee Support Tools on SDK 2.1 for a long time when it was already compatible with Alfresco 6.1
2019-10-11 14:46:05 GMT <AFaust> And with regards to the "Supported Plattforms" documentation of Alfresco, always take that with a grain of salt. This ONLY lists the combinations of versions which they have specifically tested / tried (not even that in some cases), so it is their "intended" state of support.
2019-10-11 14:48:53 GMT <AFaust> Where SDK support plays a big role is in running your extensions in a runtime Alfresco instance managed by the Maven process (e.g. for integration tests), because there they have royally screwed up cross-version compatibility by switching runner concepts / configurations over and over
2019-10-11 14:51:14 GMT <AFaust> So, if your customisations / extension a) does not need to be run in a Maven managed / initialised Alfresco instance and b) you are not touching on any of the changed / incompatible APIs, THEN you can use almost any version of SDK
2019-10-11 14:52:00 GMT <AFaust> oh, and c) if you are not too particular about the packaging format, so are fine with either AMP or JAR (so, no ideological / religious crusader for JAR)
