-= The existing Tutorial should be used with Torque-3.0! =
+= The Tutorial has been updated for Torque-3.1! =
-If someone would like to indicate updates that are necessary to bring the tutorial up to
the latest release then please note your findings here.
+If you find any problems with the Tutorial you can list them below.
-I tried to follow the tutorial on the torque web site. It worked very well except for the
following issues, which I had difficulties with:
- * It took me a while to figure out that I should have downloaded torque-gen as well as torque
itself in step 1 (Ok, the link points at a directory where both files are listed, but a short
hint for the stupid cannot hurt ;-)). It seems that the tutorial is not yet adapted to the
situation of a separate generator. Some files which are said to be in the root of torque are
actually located in the root of torque-gen.
- * Also, it would be worth while mentioning that one should call {{{Torque.init(path_to_config_file)}}}
at the start of the java code, before one starts using torque classes.

-= Towards a tutorial for Torque-CVS =
-I just got the CVS version of Torque to generate XML schema from my running db, so I will
post some things that I think might be nice to have in a tutorial.
- * the directory structure is nothing like that listed in any of the docs, which is really
- * so I used maven, that seeming to be the thing to do, and because I couldn't find the files
to modify to go the ant route.
- * In retrospect, maven use could be pretty painless, except for the following problem that
kept tripping me up.  If I did the following:{{{
-    cd db-torque 
-    maven install:plugin
-    maven torque:jdbc
- Then I would get an error, as the maven plugin could not find the source for my org.postgres.Driver.
 The only fix I could figure out was to directly edit {{{~/.maven/plugins/maven-torque-plugin-3.2/project.xml}}}
and insert the following dependecy node: {{{
-    <dependency>
-      <id>postgresql</id>
-      <version>7.4.1-jdbc3</version>
-      <properties>
-        <classloader>root</classloader>
-      </properties>
-    </dependency>
-    }}}
- I could not get this dependency to stick by editing any of the project.xml files in db-torque,
nor in {{{myproject/project.xml}}}.  After adding that hack, the following worked: {{{
-    mkdir newproject
-    cd newproject
-    [create project.xml]
-    mkdir -p src/schema
-    touch src/schema/schema.xml
-    maven torque:jdbc
-}}} producing the following output (with my server name changed) {{{

-=  I suppose Torque.properties in the tutorial should be updated? =
-I've spend a day figuring out what's wrong with the Bookstore example (I used torque-3.1.tar.gz
and torque-gen-3.1.tar.gz) as I always get the following error messages:
-[WARN] IDBroker - -IDBroker is being used with db 'bookstore', which does not support transactions.
IDBroker attempts to use transactions to limit the possibility of duplicate key generation.
 Without transactions, duplicate key generation is possible if multiple JVMs are used or other
means are used to write to the database.
-java.lang.NullPointerException: There was no DataSourceFactory configured for the connection
-My original '''Torque.properties''' file I used from the old tutorial
-log4j.rootCategory = DEBUG, default
-log4j.appender.default = org.apache.log4j.FileAppender
-log4j.appender.default.file = ./torque.log
-log4j.appender.default.layout = org.apache.log4j.SimpleLayout
-torque.database.default = bookstore
-torque.database.bookstore.driver = org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver
-torque.database.bookstore.url = jdbc:mysql://
-torque.database.bookstore.username = user
-torque.database.bookstore.password = password
-The above '''Torque.properties''' does not work.  So I tried the new one indicated in 
-[http://db.apache.org/torque/configuration-howto.html Pool-config Howto]
-torque.dsfactory.bookstore.factory= org.apache.torque.dsfactory.SharedPoolDataSourceFactory
-torque.dsfactory.bookstore.pool.validationQuery=SELECT 1
-torque.dsfactory.bookstore.connection.driver = org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver
-torque.dsfactory.bookstore.connection.url = jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/bookstore
-torque.dsfactory.bookstore.connection.user = root
-torque.dsfactory.bookstore.connection.password = 1234
-Then I could run the bookstore example.  I'm not too sure if this type of configuration should
be mention  
-in the tutorial but it sure works for me.  Thanks
-=  Another reason for "... no DataSourceFactory configured ..."  =
-I am using SAPDB had some problems to get my test application running. The reason was that
some code uses upper case. So, when my database property is:
-I have to use upper case in all other properties:
-At least it works for me now.
