Subject [jira] Resolved: (GERONIMO-1849) Attribute Manager broken WRT Reference
Date Fri, 02 Jun 2006 13:27:30 GMT

Aaron Mulder resolved GERONIMO-1849:

    Resolution: Fixed
     Assign To: Aaron Mulder

I think we fixed the most important parts of this (removing the junk text from the XML file,
making the schema match the file, and validating on load).

It is still not possible to fully recreate an abstract name from the elements provided, but
"knock on wood" they should be enough to uniquely identify a target.

In the future as we review the syntax for patterns and object references in general, we'll
just have to remember to review the config.xml syntax accordingly.

> Discovered for a new GBean generated at runtime with a reference.  For a reference to
ServerInfo (a single-valued reference, which can use the exact abstract name of the target),
you get this:
> AbstractName used as the value of the reference:
> geronimo/j2ee-system/1.1-SNAPSHOT/car?ServiceModule=geronimo/j2ee-system/1.1-SNAPSHOT/car,j2eeType=GBean,name=ServerInfo
> Reference to ServerInfo written into the GBean definition in config.xml:
>       <reference name="ServerInfo">
>           <pattern>

>               <artifactId>j2ee-system</artifactId>
>               <version>1.1-SNAPSHOT</version>
>               <type>car</type>
>               <name>ServerInfo</name>
> geronimo/j2ee-system/1.1-SNAPSHOT/car?ServiceModule=geronimo/j2ee-system/1.1-SNAPSHOT/car,j2eeType=GBean,name=ServerInfo#</pattern>
>       </reference>
> Note these things:
>  - The AbstractNameQuery is written as plain text after the </name> with a # on
the end
>  - The pattern chunks do not hold the ServiceModule (though it could be calculated) or
j2eeType (which would just be lost), so they cannot be used to reconstruct the full AbstractName
/ AbstractNameQuery / Pattern
>  - The code also looks for a "module" in the AbstractName to write a <module> element
in the pattern, but there is not "module" in the AbstractName in question (should that be
the ServiceModule?)
>  - Many abstract names hold significantly more components than the ServiceName does due
to JSR-77 requirements (application name, parent component name, parent component type, etc.),
so it's not clear that any hardcoded set of elements can capture the variety of possible abstract
>  - The schema at modules/system/src/schema/local-attribute.xsd bears little relation
to the syntax currently used in the generated config.xml file, which is not validated when
written or read
> To reproduce this, start Geronimo, go to the "Keystores" portlet in the console, click
"New Keystore", enter a file name and password, submit it, and wait a few seconds for it to
be written to config.xml (there will be a new FileKeystoreInstance GBean in the j2ee-security
