Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-505) Erlang code path prefers older versions of CouchDB
Date Tue, 01 Nov 2011 01:33:32 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-505?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13140781#comment-13140781

Adam Kocoloski commented on COUCHDB-505:
----------------------------------------

Enh, doubt that would go anywhere.  Best practices for deploying Erlang/OTP systems these
days explicitly specify the versions of applications to be loaded.

> We're using ERL_LIBS to add PREFIX/lib/couchdb/erlang/lib to the code path on CouchDB
startup.  If multiple versions of CouchDB have been installed,  that directory might look
something like
> mochiweb-r97
> ibrowse-1.5.2
> couch-0.9.0
> couch-0.10.0a
> ...
> In this case, we want the system to use beams from couch-0.10.0a, but apparently Erlang's
code loader sorts couch-0.9.0 higher.  
> One solution would be to fall back to explicitly adding specific app directories to the
code path using -pa.
> An elegant solution would be to make sure that our app directories are named in such
a way that they automatically sort correctly in the code loader.  I'm not sure this is really
possible, though, particularly when a user is installing development versions built from source
next to released versions.
