Subject [jira] Updated: (GERONIMO-2994) Apache Roller plugin
Date Mon, 03 Sep 2007 18:46:59 GMT


Peter Petersson updated GERONIMO-2994:

    Attachment: roller_maven_ant_task_070902_0.patch

Bringing Roller plugins to G v2.0.1 and roller-4.0_rc1 by adding roller_plugin_070803.patch
and roller_maven_ant_task_070902_0.patch. 

Changes I recall doing
 * Updating roller plugins from Geronimo 2.0-SNAPSHOT to Geronimo 2.0.1.
 * Changing the version schema of the plugins to <plugin module version>(-SNAPSHOT)
and adding geronimo and roller version information to the geronimo-plugin description.   

 * Removing dependency of the roller-war plugin module and updating the roller-weblogger war
by using the 4.0_rc1 version via local maven repo. See additional information on building
and installing the roller weblogger artifact below. 
 * Updating the plugins parent version accordingly (org.apache.geronimo.genesis.config/project-config/1.2)
 * Setting <property name="openjpa.QueryCompilationCache" value="false"/> I am not sure
this is needed (and it is likely a performance damper) but during my work on the roller maven
build system (jira ROL-1537) I got rid of a random exception that bugged me wile adding and
testing out the mvn jetty:run-war on roller-weblogger.war by setting it.  
 * Could not get the DatabaseInitializationGBean to work properly, switched to rollers auto
install by setting installation.type=auto in
 * Updating the geronimo-plugins.xml file to reflect the new version.
 * Updating the README file with up to date installation instructions. 
 * Some general cleanup.

Local maven roller-weblogger.war
 For now (as long as no official roller maven artifacts are available) I found this to be
the most useful way of handling the weblogger.
 Check out the svn 4.0_rc1 tag found at
patch it with the roller_maven_ant_task_070902_0.patch (it's a small maven patch to the ant
build included in this jira) and run 'ant mvn-install'. Observe that you need to download
and install the maven-ant-task jar from here
and place it in <roller_4.0_rc1>/tools/buildtime/maven/. Some of this information can
also be fond in the README file in the plugin root.
Known Caveats
 * uninstall of roller plugins leaves the roller-<database>-resources files present
in geronimo/repostory and it will not be overwritten/replaced by a new one unless you manually
delete it or change the version. This can be a bit annoying and cause some confusion during
work on the plugins.       
 * maven install from root directory dose not work the first time around (from a clean local
repository) you have to install the modules one by one.

> Have been working on getting Apache Roller running under Geronimo I finally got to the
point where the roller application seems to be running smoothly in Geronimo v1.2 (current
snapshot). It would be great to eventually see this application as a plugin in G so here are
pointers to resources and attached plans.

running smothly :).
