Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-33149) Create webservice that returns the preferred mirror url given a path to an Apache project release
Date Thu, 02 Aug 2012 11:51:02 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-33149?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13427250#comment-13427250
] 

Erik de Bruin commented on FLEX-33149:
--------------------------------------

Excellent idea. I've updated my contribution to include this fallback, which is triggered
when the CGI is not found.

Note: this solution is now part of my 'mega-patch', attached to FLEX-33106. I have removed
all my other patches. I was getting my patches crossed, and as the Ghostbusters noted: "Don't
cross the patches… It would be bad… Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously
and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light." ;-)

> Erik de Bruin's proposal:
> 1. Create 'single-mirror-url.cgi' in the root of the site (i.e. http://incubator.apache.org/flex/single-mirror-url.cgi)
with these three lines:
>     
> #!/bin/sh
> # Wrapper around the standard mirrors.cgi script
> exec /www/www.apache.org/dyn/mirrors/mirrors.cgi $*
> 2. Create 'single-mirror-url.html' (.mdtext?) next to the .cgi from step 1., with only
this line:
>     
> [preferred]
>     
> 3. Set CGI script permissions to executable:
>     
> % chmod a+x single-mirror-url.cgi
> 4. In 'ApacheFlexConfig.xml', change the 'path' attribute of the 'ApacheFlexSDK' node
to "/incubator/flex/4.8.0-incubating/binaries/" and the 'file' attribute to "apache-flex-sdk-4.8.0-incubating-bin.zip".
Note: the application (when patched) will take care of the addition of the mirror domain to
complete the URL.
> 5. Apply patches to InstallApacheFlex source:
> InstallApacheFlex.txt for InstallApacheFlex.mxml
> ViewResourceConstants.txt for ViewResourceConstants.as
> RuntimeLocale.txt for RuntimeLocale.as
> HTH and that I understood the rules and regulations for patching, commenting etc. correctly
(if not, please tell me and I'll behave better next time).
