Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3225) Some demo programs in -bin distributions are not mentioned in demo/programs/readme.html
Date Mon, 23 Nov 2009 11:53:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3225?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12781374#action_12781374

John H. Embretsen commented on DERBY-3225:

Thanks for working on this as well, Bryan :) I had a look at your patch and have a couple
of comments and suggestions:

 - <zipfileset> changes for bin.zip artifacts look fine. However, you need to do the
same for <target name="bin.tgz" depends="init"> as well.

 - you can do a quick build of release artifacts relatively easily (if you have all required
resources), see http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/DerbySnapshotOrRelease#Making_a_.28private.29_Quick_Build_of_Release_Artifacts

 - demo.html, LocalCalendar: Add period after sentence ending with "when you come back online".

 - localcal/README: This ends saying "ARCHITECTURE <Coming Soon>", which I guess is
wrong (it has been there for quite some time). Although not actually part of this Jira issue,
you may consider removing that paragraph while you are at it... your choice.

 - demo.html, VTIs: Enclose paragraph following bullet-point list ("In addition...") in a
<p class="BodyRelative"> tag, to add space between last bullet point and the following
text (without it it looks a bit cluttered in my browser).

The fact that README files are simple text files seems to work good enough in my browsers.
I did not actually test that the build scripts worked. And yes, it seems that the VTI build
has been changed since this bug report was created, so I guess that part is taken care of.

Thanks again :)

> Currently in trunk, there are 8 demo (sub)directories in the demo/programs directory
scheduled to be included in -bin distributions, each containing one or more demo or sample

> With a -bin distribution of Derby, a user should be able to get an overview of the included
demo program offering by opening demo/programs/readme.html in a web browser (there is a link
to this from the top-level index.html file). In trunk, we are currently missing short descriptions
of and links to:
>  - localcal (see DERBY-1936) [also in 10.3]
>  - scores (see DERBY-1993) [also in 10.3]
>  - vtis (see DERBY-3129)
> Each of these demos have a README file in their respective subdirectories, that could
easily be linked to.*
> The remaining 5 demos are accessible from and described by the readme.html file (readme.html
is a frameset; the actual references and descriptions are in navbar.html and demo.html. These
files are placed in the java/demo directory in the source tree).
> *)
> Also, one should make sure that the README files and other instructions are suitable
for -bin distributions, not only -src distributions or SVN working copies. Otherwise, these
particular demos should not be included in -bin distributions. For example both localcal/README,
scores/README and vtis/README currently refer to build scripts that are not scheduled for
inclusion in -bin distros.
