Subject RE: manager app+ant bug's n' blues - continued
Date Wed, 30 Apr 2003 22:47:31 GMT
Hi Shapira,

What do you think about replacing the HTTP PUT request by a Axis servlet 
which will expose the API currently served by the manager app? Who would 
help me with digging into the code if I have any questions about the 
current code structure?

Is there a specification about how to perform checksums on WAR files to 
allow easy checking if anything has gone wrong during upload (e.g. MD5 
hash or something of the like)? 

I could imagine an application which exposes the manager app and goes 
beyond it for uploading WAR files:
*) allow upload of two files, one WAR and one checksum file
*) notify the caller if anything has gone wrong during upload (invalid 
*) deploy the WAR file to the docbase the user wants to use
(this would support my versioning effort of multiple versions of one app I 
always talked about so far).
*) make sure that everything gets properly inited (InitParameters, 
JAR-files, etc. not broken, servlet.init() finishes correctly).

Is anybody else interested in implementing that?

thx alot

I don't use the manager app, so I can't troubleshoot with any accuracy,
but I do have a suggestion that can help with all the problems outlined
in this email...

The "solutions" may "come" earlier if you contribute them yourself ;)
