Subject [jira] Commented: (WOOKIE-26) Standalone version of Wookie for development
Date Wed, 21 Oct 2009 14:39:59 GMT


Scott Wilson commented on WOOKIE-26:

I've applied the patches to the branch.

Here are some issues I've identified when trying to build and run:

Problem: Can't find ivysettings.xml
Fix: Change ivy-common.xml to point to "ant/ivysettings.xml"

Problem: Can't resolve htmlcleaner, shindig
Fix: Change ivysettings.xml to point to "${basedir}/ant/lib/[artifact]-[revision].[type]"

Problem: Compile errors
Fix: Add commons-compress-1.0.jar to /ant/lib, and add to ivy.xml (as also noted above)

>From this point on we can build. Now onto running.

Problem: Class not found
Fix: Add 	<property name="" value="org.apache.wookie.server.Start"/>
to ivy-java-common.xml

Problem: Null pointer in Start.class
Fix: Move the "widgetdb_derby.sql" file into /src/ so the classloader can access it

At this point I'm basically stuck. Rather than use an embedded Derby DB, the build is actually
still pointing to MySQL in its hibernate.cfg.xml. And so the sql script won't run as the column
order isn't the same in MySQL. (And I'm not sure I want it to be playing with my MySQL at
this point anyway)

Happy to commit the fixes noted above if they make sense (being new to this whole Ivy thing)

> A key objective for any open source project is to minimise the barriers to entry for
new developers. Currently a prospective developer needs to jump through quite a number of
hoops to get started (install tomcat, install mysql, configure database, set up realms etc.
> On the mail list it was proposed and approved that we would create a version that used
Apache Derby (thus getting rid of the GPLd MySQL dependency) and Jetty to provide a pre-configured
development environment requiring zero setup.
