Forum OpenACS Development: Bleeding edge status

Posted by Barry Books on
I'm looking to upgrade to 9i this fall and in the spirt of changing everything at once I figured I'd upgrade to ACS 5 and AOLserver 4. So far it seems I may be the first to try this. My question is what modules do I need to build to support 5.0? From what I can tell the list seems to be
  • AOLserver 4.0 beta 8
  • tcl8.4.3
  • nscache-1.5
  • nsoracle-2.6
  • nssha1-0.1
  • tDom-0.7.7
I'm running Solaris 9 and AOLserver/TCL, nscache and nssha1 seem to build fine.

The Oracle driver is a mess. There are a couple of changes needed to compile with AOLserver 4 and 9i but even then it gets a few hunderd prototype warnings. I also can't link it but I think I've got a 32/64 bit compile problem. I hate to ask this but is anyone supporting it anymore?

I'm also having a problem with tDom. When I set --with-aolserver it complains it can't find ns.h.

I suspect this is something dumb but I'm curious if I have the correct versions or if I'm the first to try this?

I figured out the tDOM problem. It appears with AOLserver 4 you don't use the --with-aolserver flag.

Barry, I have been maintaining the oracle driver and if you have patches for the compiler warnings versus what's currently in the sourceforge cvs please send them along. I don't have a 9i install locally so have not built it versus 9i but a number of people are using it now with no reported problems. If you do find any bugs please report them at the bug tracker on sourceforge.

I'll pull the latest Oracle driver from CVS, hack on it and send you the result.
