Refactored Patch

The initial patch was eclipse workpspace specific and required to have a certain project name. It was created with svn, so files had to be moved. Finally some compile errors had to be removed. OpenCms 7.0.5 was checked out from cvs. The following patch is the result of the integration of the first patch. Please start with this one. 

JPA Driver Patch Refactored.

The required libraries are not in the patch. Use the following zip file. Deflate it and copy it over <eclipse-project>/lib/: jar libraries.

Results 

  • Some work had to be done before the patch could be applied, compiled and installed.
  • Installation was successful. The installations wizard showed changes in the UI which are subject to discussion (e.g. all JPA - supported DMBS are listed next to a checkbox for choice of JPA).
  • After the installation the proper drivers are not contained in the OpenCms configuration (opencms.properties): OpenCms will start with a standard driver set instead of using JPA.
  • The database structure created during setup does not require scripts. At a first glance it looks so as if there is no difference to the previous non-JPA database structure.
  • The Junit test cases would not run due to missing folders and the fact that the current test architecture requires to run scripts for creating and dropping the database. Further work on the tests has to be done.
