Forum OpenACS Q&A: New File Storage included in 3.2.5???
Is this still a topic or is there any other path the file storage module will follow, like a new version within openacs 4.x?
Regarding OpenACS 4.x, the file storage module in ACS 4.x is a rewrite based on the content repository. We've been discussing rewriting the content repository to optionally allow persistent object in either the db or filesystem - a best-of-all-worlds solution, perhaps?
does a new version of the file storage exist? Beside the October thread by Ben it wasn't mentioned anymore on the bboard. It would really help our platform, because it is integrated as a main module.
be released as BETA as there are some issues with it (that we'll be
able to quickly track down with the help of the community *hint). The
module will be disabled by default, with the old data model being
loaded unless you tell it specifically to load the new-file-storae.sql
couple questions. Is it intended that we have
1.) two files in /www/doc/sql (file-storage.sql - new-file-storage.sql)
2.) files in /www/file-storage that are valueable for the new-file-storage but not for the old
3.) the old file in /tcl (file-storage-defs.tcl)
And then: Am I correct to believe that the new file storage will be quicker because it will save files inside the file-system and wouldn't have to perform the cpu intensive blob hack? Perhaps you or Ben could quickly name some changes between new and old.
David: Since new-file-storage is beta, the plan is to have two
directories under www: file-storage and new-file-storage. And two sql
It looks like we hade a little CVS confusion, but this will be
corrected before 3.2.5 is frozen (which should happen as soon as we
get the file-storage and intranet patches straightened out).
Since I am at it, I am committing the intranet patch that Chris Hardy
submitted and that was reviewed by Dan later today, so we may be able
to freeze 3.2.5 today to unleash the gates of testing :)
