Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-377) allow native view servers
Date Tue, 04 Aug 2009 17:52:15 GMT


Damien Katz commented on COUCHDB-377:

This patch looks good to me, though I would like to see some JS based tests using the run_on_modified_server
functionality in the test suite.

> There has been some discussion on IRC etc about how to support 'native' view servers,
such as 'erlview' in a generic way.  Currently using erlview requires you to modify couch.
> I'm attaching a patch as a first attempt at supporting this.  In summary, the patch now
looks up a new 'native_query_servers' config file section for a list of view_server names
with a {Module, Func, Args} style string specifying the entry-point of the view server.  The
code now passes an additional atom around indicating if the PID is 'native' or 'external',
and map_docs takes advantage of this to avoid the json step.  This patch allows erlview to
work for me, but in theory any erlang code could be used here.
> I'm very new at erlang - please let me know if I should make stylistic or other changes,
or indeed if I should take a different approach completely.
