Re: [virgo-dev] EBR repository.zip location

Thanks for looking into this Glyn

I think for now we'll continue to rely on the copy of the index that's bundled with the tools, and we'll hide the link to check for updates.

Cheers,
Leo

Hi Leo

I tracked down the engineer who produced the JSON and the code to produce it is no longer available. I'm afraid we'll have to live without the JSON unless someone fancies writing a tool to convert the indices below to JSON format.

Yes, JSON is the expected format. When the tools unpack the repository.zip we expect to find JSON which then gets parsed to build up an ArtefactRepositoryModel, so that's a format we like. The tools pack its own copy of repository.zip, but also knows to look for updates at http://static.springsource.com/projects/sts-dm-server/index/repository.zip (which isn't up any more). It's probably not very urgent if the repository isn't updated often, but it would be nice to have a recent copy of repository.zip, either bundled with the tools or at a known stable URL.

Cheers,
Leo

The repository indices have been rebuilt. As I'm about to go on a week's vacation, backups of the old indices are available here (for at least one week, after that they'll only be on my macbook's hard drive):


Chris Frost has the necessary S3 privileges to replace the index files should that be necessary for any reason.

These files appear to some kind of packed xml.

However, I peeked inside the repository.zip an it seemed to contain json files, so I'm not sure what the relationship is between the two sets.

Hi Leo

Yes, the EBR index is out of date. I'm seeing if there is someone in SpringSource who remembers how to update it and can do so. (Remember the EBR is still in beta and is officially unsupported.)

(Also, I gather that a snapshot of the index was taken and copied into the dm Server tools. It would have been better to have the tools refer to the index remotely, preferably through a standard interface such as the upcoming OSGI OBR standard. But the EBR is pretty static these days. Spring 3.1.x releases should be published there and certain bundles required by Virgo, but other than that very little will change. I am still investigating a community-based alternative to the EBR, but that is very slow in coming...)

Hi all

In the Virgo tooling, there's a reference to http://static.springsource.com/projects/sts-dm-server/index/repository.zip as the location of the latest EBR repository index, but that URL is clearly out of date. Does anybody know where we can find the current EBR index?
