Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-425) HWI JSP pages should be compiled at build-time instead of run-time
Date Thu, 16 Jul 2009 19:38:15 GMT


Edward Capriolo commented on HIVE-425:


Here are the current problems I see.

* JSP 
** Hard To check Syntax at Compile Time
** References to other parts of hive (not many but) may become outdated with API changes
* Hard to unit test Are unit test tests the SessionManager, not the actual jsp flow of passing
form items.

So the ideal framework would be: 
* small <5MB. we dont want to make Hive bigger just better
* mostly .Java and servlet based (little/no JSP)
* Possibly a way to unit test a transaction. Login->RunQuery->Verify Results
* Apache compat license 
* XML/CSS (if it helps eliminate JSP)
* Low complexity (I am not interested in learning what a org.springframework.transaction.interceptor.AbstractFallbackTransactionAttributeSource
) is for example :)

I know little about JSP Frameworks. Do you you have one that fits the needs?

> HWI JSP pages are compiled via the ant jar at run-time.  Doing so at run-time requires
ant as a dependency and also makes developing slightly more tricky, as compiler errors are
not discovered until HWI is deployed and running.  HWI should be instrumented in such a way
where the JSP pages are compiled by ant at build-time instead, just as the Hadoop status pages
