Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-1079) Add module under apachds to test that the server.xml is up to date
Date Mon, 01 Oct 2007 19:14:50 GMT


David Jencks commented on DIRSERVER-1079:

I don't see any good reason this has to be in a new module.  I added a simple test in apacheds-server-xml
that tries to fire up a spring configured server using the xbean stuff.  Due to the changes
alex made yesterday in partition setup the current server.xml doesn't work, but now you can
see that really quickly :-)

rev 581038.

Ole -- the schema for the xbean server.xml is generated from javadoc like annotations on the
source classes.  Therefore any xml tool or parser can be used to validate server.xml against
the generated schema.  At this point I don't see that an xml schema first approach from which
we generate the component classes would be an improvement or even workable.  I think at this
point what will help us most is simplicity in our tool chain and simplicity of configuration.
 Perhaps when the server is clearly assembled out of well defined IOC components we can look
into additional configuration mechanisms but I think in order to get the current refactoring
complete enough to use we shouldn't add any more technologies than provide a clear immediate
simplification and advantage.

indeed the test I added does check that server.xml fits the model :-)

since this is overlooked quit often it's a good idea to just add a module to test that this
server.xml file is working.
