Subject Re: [GSOC] Simple and lightweight HTML-based browser for surveying Apache CXF logs
Date Thu, 29 Jul 2010 11:25:42 GMT
Hi Sergey,

Thanks for your reply.

I've made a number of commits, but I forgot write what they fixed:

- Refactored code of BootstrapStorage (for easier configuration) and
- Moved "static file" servlet to BootstrapStorage as subresource;
- Removed dependency of XStream from source code and from pom.xml file;
- Fixed bugs connected with restoring settings from BootstrapStorage;
- Fixed configuration for logger in sample (for better interaction
with AtomPullServer);
- Moved configuration of JSONProvider to BootstrapStorage;
- Removed "CHECKSTYLE:OFF" attribute from some classes;
- Added "Copies" input in "generate.html" page for define number of
copies. "GenerateServlet" class will generate number of message
(specified in "Copies" field) in one time;
- Fixed bug with not clearing previous page after going to another. Added
- Added basic exception basic handler
- Removed datetime, level from event content.
- Fixed broken layout of 'settings' tab;
- Fixed broken layout of 'authentication' tab;
- Fixed moved 'last' link;
- Fixed title of the page;
- Add cutting long message in log entries list;

However I also found issues (I will fix them ASAP):

- Hide security fields (username, password etc) in "Add/Edit endpoint"
dialog box (because I won't implemented authentication for endpoints
in the near future,)
- Add more advanced exception handler for easy investigating exception;
- Add word wrap to entry content;

When I fixed all issues I will come back to refactoring, adding JavaDocs etc.
Below some comments.

I think it's good enough. I patterned "logbrowser" user interface upon
"Google Reader" user interface - they sometimes use links as buttons
to be more compact.

It's thread name. I agree with you that it's a little bit enigmatical.
I will change it into "Thread name: X" and move it into new special
section within current "entry content" section.

I've already added new input "Copies" to "generate.html" page. If you
enter "40" there, "GenerateServlet" will generate "40" entries in one
time. Maybe I should rename this input from "Copies" to "Number of
copies", because at the moment it could be a little bit confusing.

Great advice! I will fix it ASAP.
