Not quite some of activity on the forum

by  filip »  2011/07/28 11:36

Hi All,

 

I would like to ask a few questions here:

 

1. What is there inside the Customer Extranet? Do you have some additional and helpful documentation there?

2. How one can gain access to this extranet?

3. The forum seems quite inactive? Is there somebody who is actually checking/answering users questions?

4. What about the helloworld application, mentioned in the README file of the SDK? Is just outdated stuff from older versions of Jahia?

 

Your product seems to be amazing, but I am sure anyone would like to see bigger community, active forum users and good documentation.

 

Kind Regadrs,

Filip

Hi Filip,

Here is some answers for your questions:

1. The Customer Extranet contains hotfixes, nightly builds, customer support and advanced stack documentation.

2. The Customer Extranet is available for customers who have an Enterprise Subscription.

3. As you said, the forum is not very active. I do try to address most of the post and get people to answer them. We are currently putting a lot of effort into improving the forum as well as the way manage it.

4. This is a great feedback. I just downloaded the SDK and it seems that we did not package it correctly. Many folders are empty. I just forwarded this issue to the team. We will provide a correctly package SDK within the next few days.

Thank you for your feedbacks, we have been working hard on the 6.5 release. We are now focusing on providing some more documentation, improving our website as well as stabilizing this fresh release.

Regards,

Fabrice

Customer Extranet, SDK package, Jahia Enterprise Editon

by  filip »  2011/07/29 12:40

Hi Fabrice,

 

thanks for clarifying about the extranet - when you do have the time - it would be good if you put up all of this information on your website, including a comparison chart between CE and EE Jahia.

I hope we will have the newly packaged SDK soon.

 

Kind regards,

Filip

Filip,

 

I think it's important for regulat developers that we get back to the forum a couple of times a week, see if we can answer queations, or somtimes even post a little 'HOWTO' to help others doing what we now know how todo :)

This way we can slowly start building the Jahia CE/EE community. I think Jahia is a great CMS, and I an using it for one of my open source projects's website (http://librecad.org)

So, wherever I can help I will try to do so...

    Hi,

    Filip, I will forward your suggestion about a chart showing the differences between the standard and enterprise stack.

    Ries, we really appreciate your contribution on the forum. The "HOW TO" posts are a good idea, I will think about maybe creating a topic for that :)

    Hi Ries,

    yes - any help will be appreciated. And yes, I also think Jahia is great (also amazing)

     

    However, I wasn't able to find any API reference or Javadocs or TAGLIB references, etc.

    I think these are essentials, needed by any developer to start working with Jahia and using its services.

    For example, I saw there is the JahiaUserManagerService class, which provides some kind of services about the registered users. (The Oshyn modules). Howver, I didn't find any API reference in the Jahiapedia or anywhere else.

    OK. There is the Javadoc in the taglib source files, which could be used....

    Alos, I saw the public-api folder, which has the: JahiaUserService class....

    ... but is that all? Are there other services availble to developers?

     

    Kind regards,

    Filip

    Howto ? You said howto ?

    by  gulhe »  2011/08/23 09:36

    I feel just as Filip does (at least I think so).

    This site lacks some howto, some detailed articles and comprehensive list of machanisms available for devs.

    I am really interested in this solution and I would love to be able to use all of its features.

    My source of documentation is 50% this website, and 50% the sourcecode both the available JSP files within all modules but teh SVN aswell.

    I have been written a couple of modules already (SSO based on GET parameters (gelgacy app...), some groovy script, and going to make a render filter this week. All examples can easely be taken and modified from the source code with fairly easu dev steps.

    keep comming back to the forum, the more active, the better and if persons know the anseers to questions, I am sure to post back.

    How to call Jahia action and return from it - without AJAX/JSON

    by  filip »  2011/09/28 12:30

    Hi Ries,

     

    just a quick question - if may help ...

    I have created some modules and things are moving forward with my project, however .....

    it seems the preffered way to call a custom Jahia action is via AJAX and the action returns the results in a JSON object.

    For example, if you at the Oshyn modules  "LastRegisteredUsers"

    What if I want to call the action directly via HTTP GET? You can do this like calling directly the URL for the action.

    /cms/render/default/en/sites/GrandcityHotels/home/book-1/maincontent/filip.myService.do"

    Up till now - all is fine.

    Now, I want the action to redirect to a JSP - where the results will be displayed.

    1. I didn't find a way to do the so called "forward" to my view - as for example in struts and therefore to use the request.setAttribute as transport for my data. Instead I do HTTP redirect and I set all  my data in the session. Not very nice - but it works.

    2. I didn't find a way to automatically generate the redirect URL, i.e.

    if I return from my action this one:

    return new ActionResult(HttpServletResponse.SC_OK, "/sites/ACME/home/book", null);

    I don't know how the path: /sites/ACME/home/book, could be dynamically built using Jahia API, instead of hardocding it.

     

     

    So, my question is in general, how one can achieve a standard request-forward technique, as for example in struts:

    1. you set some data in the request attribute request.setAttribute("NAME", name);

    2. then you do the forwarding: request.setAttribute("NAME", name);

    3. and then - you read the data in your JSP and show it on the screen

     

     

    Any help will be appreciated!

     

    Thanks,

    Filip

    Re: How to call Jahia action and return from it - without AJAX/JSON

    by  rvt »  2011/09/28 15:26

    Filip,

    I think I can only answer part of your questions as I am not familiar with struts.

    I have made some ajax enabled modules and what I ususally do is get my ajax data as plain HTML, not even as JSON objects. I create one module that just responds to a ajax request in behalf of a other module.

    So what I do is add 2 modules on a page, one that just shows the initial data, and a secon dmodule that just responds to ajax requests.

    In my CND I have something like this:

     

     

     

    [jnt:naPIproduct] > jnt:content, jmix:editorialContent, jmix:cache
     - defaultBrandName (String,choicelist[script=channel.groovy]) = Pepsi
     - productSelectionContentItem (weakreference) < jnt:naPIproducts
     
    [jnt:naPIproducts] > jnt:content, jmix:editorialContent, jmix:cache
     - productSelectionContentItem (weakreference)  < jnt:naPIproduct
     
    So the module jnt:naPIproduct can have a link to the module jnt:naPIproducts to get content.
     
    Within JSP that goes something like this:
     

    <c:url value="${url.base}${currentNode.properties.productSelectionContentItem.node.path}.html.ajax" var="dataUrl">

    <c:param name="year" value="${currentYear}" />

    ...

    ...

    </c:url>

     
     
    dataUrl is something I use in my jQuery call to get additional data from Jahia and on return I add that to a container. So tge path is dynamically generated by Jahia, you don't have to 'know' during codeing time.
     
    A ajax path to your current running module can be fetched with:
     

    <c:url value="${url.base}${currentNode.path}.html.ajax" var="myOwnUrl">

    ..

    ..

    </c:url>

     
    Within your module you can do this to know if the request was actuallt a ajax request:
     

    if (renderContext.isAjaxRequest()) {

    ..

    ..

    }

     

    Or with JSTL:

     

     

    <c:if test="${renderContext.ajaxRequest}">

    ..

    ..

    </c:if>

     

     
    Within Jahia I didn't had to do any form submission though, just Ajax style requests to fetch data from a backend DB.
     
    Does that make sense?
