Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-2284) Console DB/JMS and Security Realm naming inconsistent
Date Mon, 14 Aug 2006 14:54:15 GMT
    [ ] 
Aaron Mulder commented on GERONIMO-2284:

Unfortunately, I'm not sure that's realistic given where we are.  We currently hide the group/artifact/version/type
from the user, and the name they specify becomes the artifact, with a fixed group, version,
and type.  Because of that, I dont' think we can accept slashes in the name.

However, be aware that the point of this issue is to alter the artifact name, which is separate
from the DB pool name.   When mapping a resource ref you only need the DB pool name (which
can be "Daytrader" or "DaytraderJDBC" just not "jdbc/Daytrader"), and for your dependency
you can just list artifact=DaytraderJDBC or whatever.

So, bottom line, the user should be able to stay unaware of whatever we use as the group name
(curently console.dbpool), but the artifact name can't have slashes, so the DB pool name most
likely can't have slashes.

If it was really desirable we could have an "advanced options" screen to let the user override
the group/artifact/version/type so they could leave slashes in the pool name and override
the module ID to be something valid, but I don't think this adds a whole lot of value.  They
can already generate the plan and just add a "jdbc/" to the pool name in the plan.

> When the console creates a database connection pool or JMS resource, the module ID has
the group "console.dbpool" or "console.jms".  However, when it creates a security realm, the
module ID just has the group "console" and the artifact ID has the prefix "realm-".  Instead,
the security realm module ID should have the group "console.realm" and the artifact ID should
be the same as the name the user specified.
