Does anyone know where the app skeleton can be found now? I've looked
all over the website and can't find it anywhere.

I might just be blind though...

Neil, et al

This weekend, I put a MachII skeleton together for 1.5. Integrated is the new ColdSpring property manager and a cute little page to let you know it is all configured properly.

I haven't released it yet. Would you like to be the first tester?

Included in the attached zip is MachII1-5Skeleton. If you are able to give it a go, please report back any issues or items where your preference is different.

This goes for anyone else on the list also,

Dan,

Works well.

Only two things that I noticed:

1. The MACHII_DTD_PATH was pointing to the old 1.1.1 dtd
2. What version of ColdSpring is required? I updated to the SVN
release and it worked, but previous release didn't

FYI, the ColdSpring Property is compatible with ColdSpring 1.2RC1 or
higher. It is not compatible with the 1.0 Final Stable Release. You
can get 1.2 RC1 here:
http://coldspringframework.org/index.cfm?objectid=2DD544DF-E8F4-83AA-E2D7FED1F1B53FAE

Or use the version controlled BER from CVS.

Eric,

Re: DTD.

 In the Application.cfc? It looks like I missed that one.

Which brings up a good point, In the XML files, I use <!DOCTYPE mach-ii PUBLIC "-//Mach-II//DTD Mach-II Configuration 1.5.0//EN" " http://svn.mach-ii.com/framework/1-5-0/trunk/mach-ii_1_5_0.dtd" >

I got that specific DTD from this post: http://blog.maestropublishing.com/index.cfm?mode=entry&entry=C1DA0A10-E139-A00A-49A341F4C0ED2E5B

Of course, that post is dated a year ago so there is probably a new and official version. Can someone supply the correct DTD?

Re:ColdSpring

I am personally using the BER. This should be released as final pretty soon. I don't know what the minimum version is that uses the new style of integration.  I did think it was helpful to show the new way of integrating with ColdSpring. I guess the old method should also be included in the MachII skeleton?  What do you think?

All stable/final DTDs are always located at:

http://www.mach-ii.com/dtds/

Directory listings are available for that directory -- so hitting that directory will give you a list of all the available DTDs

The latest DTD (1.5) is located here:
http://www.mach-ii.com/dtds/mach-ii_1_5_0.dtd

I've created a FAQ for this here:

Nice work Dan. This is much needed. May I suggest to include a readme
file that at least says to copy into a directory named MachIISkeleton
or alternatively to change the applicationRoot value in the
mach-ii.xml file?

Either that or make the name of the zip match the applicationRoot so
that when extracted to a web root, it just works.

Let's get these small tweaks done and beg Peter to include it on the M2 site.

Beg? Do you really think you'll have to beg? ;-)

I'll even throw it into version control and create a nice ANT script
installer while I'm at it! Plus, we can I use the new skeleton for 1.6.

So far, I have:

1) include the ColdSpring plugin for older versions
2) put the right DTD in place in the XML files and in Application.cfc
3) Add a readme or change the name of the root file in the zip


I can do this tonight. Are there any other changes folks would like to see?

Do you mean the XML or including the actual file? The old
ColdspringPlugin is still in the CS releases -- so if that is the case
-- it's not necessary to include the file. However, it's our
recommendation to not use the old ColdspringPlugin -- so it might be
best to make a note about it the skeleton and not include it.

> 2) put the right DTD in place in the XML files and in Application.cfc
Yep, sounds about right.

> 3) Add a readme or change the name of the root file in the zip
I'd just change the root directory -- the ANT script I'll write will pop
up a prompt asking you if you want to change the appRoot and will make
the change in the config file and change the directory name for you. Of
course the ANT script is optional to use, but it's so nifty!

Great work, Dan!

Peter, if you think it's fine to have a skeleton in pre-release for 1.6, I can take Dan's final and convert the default event handler to the publish/subscribe format (leaving the original available but commented out) and update the DTD reference to 1.6.   That  might be helpful for folks wanting to get an early start on 1.6.  Any other updates to add that you can think of for a 1.6 skeleton?  That is, if a pre-release skeleton is okay. ;)

Just one tiny tiny tiny thing I have noticed. You don't have any
subroutines node in the config xml, everything else appears to be
there.
Having it in might help newbies pick up on this functionality.

ColdSpring 1.2 RC1 was released recently. I would hope it would with
that. What version did you try originally?

If anyone's interested I've slapped together a build file (newapp.xml)
for the app skeleton which will create a copy of the skeleton in the
folder of your choice. Should be attached.

To run, just stick it in the skeleton, then in eclipse right click on
it, Run as Ant Build, and then follow what it asks for.

You would probably have to have people hit you up off list to get the file sent to them.  I don't think the mail list allows attachments,

Thanks Neil,

This is added into the attached zip along with a sample subroutine. It seems we hit all the raised issues.

Here is a quick summary of the features of the Skeleton.

-Shows best practice for integrating with ColdSpring using the ColdSpringProperty.xml
-Will detect if you have ColdSpring installed correctly. If you do not, it will nag you.
-Shows how to use the subroutine feature of Mach-II 1.5 (thanks for the suggestion Neil)
-Shows a sample Listener and xml configuration
-Shows a sample Filter and xml configuration
-Shows a sample Plugin and xml configuration
-Has an ANT task for rapidly creating new applications (thanks again Neil)
-Points to correct Mach-II 1.5 DTD references

The newest files are zipped and attached. Here is a link for those who do not get attachments:

http://www.nodans.com/custom/machii/MachIISkeleton.zip


Peter, Is this ready for official inclusion?

Yes, it is.  Yesterday I imported the skeleton in source code control and cleaned up a few things to match the project's internal coding guidelines.  I also made the "success" home page "pretty" (well, to the best of my abilities). ;-)

I need to add the ANT task as well and update it.  I'll even use regex to update the appName property in the config xml.  Also, I will rename the ANT file to build.xml as that is the standard naming convention for ANT build file.
