Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-33149) Create webservice that returns the preferred mirror url given a path to an Apache project release
Date Wed, 01 Aug 2012 20:47:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-33149?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13426879#comment-13426879
] 

Alex Harui commented on FLEX-33149:
-----------------------------------

I don't know how close Nick is to getting this done, but it might be time to consider doing
this in AS, at least temporarily.  The mirrors.cgi just seems to get a country code, gets
the list of mirrors for that country from mirrors.list and randomly picks one.  Seems like
we could try to use one of the free GeoIP webservices to get the country code and download
and parse mirrors.list in AS.

> 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).
