Subject [Couchdb Wiki] Update of "ExternalProcesses" by JarrodRoberson
Date Sat, 01 May 2010 20:25:17 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Couchdb Wiki" for change notification.

The "ExternalProcesses" page has been changed by JarrodRoberson.


  A Java example can be found here:
+ '''Notes for developing external handlers'''
+ When developing handlers you need to restart CouchDB after each change as it doesn't see
the changes until you restart the server.
+ '''Notes for OSX users:'''
+ if you are using launchctl to load and unload your CouchDB instance, it by default starts
the couchdb instance with user couchdb. External handlers won't run if they are not executable
by this user. Calls to them will fail with a 'OS Process timeout' error stack trace from Erlang.
If you start couchdb with sudo couchdb things will work fine.
