Subject Re: Support for reloading/refreshing Tile Definitions
Date Mon, 04 May 2009 17:23:29 GMT
Hi Antonio,
 
Sorry for not following this through earlier due to unavoidable circumstances.  I have resumed
my task of try to implement reloading of Tiles Definitons from the database.  To summarise,
I have implemented DbDefinitionDAO class and DbTilesContainerFactory class.  The DbTilesContainerFactory
is defined as:
 
public class DbTilesContainerFactory extends BasicTilesContainerFactory { 
 

protected DefinitionDAO<Locale> createLocaleDefinitionDao(Object context,
TilesApplicationContext applicationContext,
TilesRequestContextFactory contextFactory,
LocaleResolver resolver) {
DbDefinitionDAO definitionDao = new DbDefinitionDAO();
return definitionDao;
}

 
protected LocaleDefinitionsFactory instantiateDefinitionsFactory(
Object context, TilesApplicationContext applicationContext,
TilesRequestContextFactory contextFactory, LocaleResolver resolver) {
return new LocaleDefinitionsFactory();
} 
}

Here is the output from Log4J (after my app server has started):
 
2009-05-04 12:59:49,132 INFO [[ACTIVE] ExecuteThread: '0' for queue: 'weblogic.k
ernel.Default (self-tuning)'] AbstractTilesApplicationContextFactory - Initializ
ing Tiles2 application context. . .
2009-05-04 12:59:49,147 INFO [[ACTIVE] ExecuteThread: '0' for queue: 'weblogic.k
ernel.Default (self-tuning)'] AbstractTilesApplicationContextFactory - Finished
initializing Tiles2 application context.
2009-05-04 12:59:49,210 DEBUG [[ACTIVE] ExecuteThread: '0' for queue: 'weblogic.
kernel.Default (self-tuning)'] UrlDefinitionsFactory - Updating Tiles definition
s. . .
2009-05-04 12:59:49,226 INFO [[ACTIVE] ExecuteThread: '0' for queue: 'weblogic.k
ernel.Default (self-tuning)'] TilesAccess - Publishing TilesContext for context:
 org.apache.tiles.servlet.context.ServletTilesApplicationContext
 
I don't see an exception, but I do not understand why the UrlDefinitionsFactory is being used
to load the TilesDefinitions instead of the LocaleDefinitionsFactory.  My Tiles Servlet is
configured in web.xml like this:
 
<servlet id="Servlet_tiles">
     <servlet-name>tiles</servlet-name>
        <servlet-class>org.apache.tiles.web.startup.TilesServlet</servlet-class>
        <init-param>
            <param-name>
              org.apache.tiles.impl.BasicTilesContainer.DEFINITIONS_CONFIG
            </param-name>
            <param-value>
              /WEB-INF/tiles-defs.xml
            </param-value>
        </init-param>
     <init-param>
     <param-name>
       org.apache.tiles.factory.AbstractTilesContainerFactory
      </param-name>
      <param-value>
       com.xyz.DbTilesContainerFactory
      </param-value>      
     </init-param>    
        <load-on-startup>4</load-on-startup>
            </servlet>
 
I think I did notice is that I need to have an entry for the BasicTilesContainer.DEFINITIONS_CONFIG
param, otherwise I get an exception during startup.  My tiles-defs.xml file is empty.
 
I have an earlier implementation based on a DefinitionsReader working successfully where I
load definitions from the Database.  I wish to use the DAO approach as I need to be able
to refresh definitions on the fly.
 
Regards
Vibhore

This is strange, probably an exception happened.
Can you turn on log4j DEBUG logging for "org.apache.tiles" and post
the log here?
