Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-3878) Unable to deploy Postgres Datasource from console dialog "Database Pools" because of missing jar files in jar selection listbox.
Date Mon, 03 Mar 2008 21:46:50 GMT


David Jencks commented on GERONIMO-3878:

bq.Yes, that's right. It works if you donwload the driver directly. The dialog first does
not work, if you try a test, it fails. But after this first failure, the dialog is ok. It
always comes up with the corret postgres specific settings, and more over, the datasource
is ok. The application works. But i'am still confused because of the following:

bq.    * Why this strange behaviour - only for Postgres? With geronimo 2.0.2 you could download
the driver separately, and then use the common libs dialog (now called repository) to deploy
it. Then you will see it in the jars listbox. This still works - if you use another database
type (like DB2).

I installed postgresql/postgresql/8.2-504.jdbc3/jar using the "repository" page and saw it
in the wizard.  I think I've been getting confused between "postgres" and "postgresql".  I
notice that my previous post embodied this confusion :-)

I think two things might help...
# a checkbox to show all jars 
# a page or change to the repository page to copy a jar from a maven repo to the geronimo
repo.  (part of GERONIMO-3884)

 bq.   * This workaround is not suitable for a production system. In production we "NEVER"
have a internet connection. People in the production system are used to get a jar, and then
they deploy it using the dialoge. So, i could use the dialog of an other system with internet
connection to create a plan and advice production to deploy the plan. But this will probably
result in editing and changing the plan to the preferences of production systems. And this
will result in errors.

I'm not sure what you mean by a production system.  In an even slightly controlled environment
I'd expect that you would not use the admin console for anything, and instead would have a
project-wide controlled maven repository for approved artifacts and build plugins and assemblies
for your apps as described  here:

> Trying to deploy a datasource with console dialog "Database Pools". 
>  - Select link "Console Navigation/Services/Database Pools".
>  - Select link "Using the geronimo database pool wizard".
>  - Enter some database name like for instance "vesuv" and select as Database Type: "PostgreSQL
XA" or "PostgreSQL local".
>  - Click the Next button.
>  - Now, on the page where you specify the properties of the database pool, the listbox
where you can select the driver jar  is empty. If you choose another database type (on the
previous dialog page), the list is filled with all entries from repository. The same steps
have been made with Geronimo 2.02. There the database could be deployed.
