Subject [jira] [Commented] (WOOKIE-176) Find an improved method for updating unidentified widgets
Date Thu, 25 Aug 2011 15:21:29 GMT


Scott Wilson commented on WOOKIE-176:

I'm not sure its going to be possible to solve this satisfactorily - you could make a best
guess based on things like the title, description or even inspect the file contents to get
some sort of match % but I'm not sure I'd trust such an algorithm to not make mistakes, potentially
overwriting other widgets.

Perhaps we should just warn admins when they try to submit widgets which have no identifiers,
or provide a configuration option to reject widgets with no ID.

> This issue is a follow-on from issue 171 which identified some problems with the manifest
parser's handling of ids.
> Currently widgets that have no id or have an id which doesn't pass the IRIValidator test
won't update when re-uploaded or re-deployed.
> This is because the in these cases a random id is being generated and it is ids which
are used to indentfy if a widget already exists.
> We need to find a better method to identify and compare incoming widgets with ones already
in the system - particularly as ids are an optional feature in the widget specification.
