Forum OpenACS Development: Re: OpenACS 5.9.0 and Oracle 12c

Posted by Gustaf Neumann on
Dear Brian,

many thanks for the time invested and the fixes. Some of these can be probably included in the forthcoming release, some of these might require more changes. On some of the changes, you provided a fixed version for the create-scripts, but it is not clear, how to deal with these in upgrades. However since we have this nicely in the tracker, we can improve stepwise.

Concerning the rel-types: you are referring probably to these changes:

by these postings, the documentation and intentions should be clear. The PostgreSQL version appears to work nicely.

Good job and many thanks!

Hi Gustaf

good point about the upgrade scripts. Yes, I'll sort those out.

Thanks for the rel-types info. When I go to look at 591, I'll follow up on that.

thanks for all your great work!

I really appreciate your effort Brain! Unfortunately you may find out issues like the one on ACSMail Lite you have kindly reported (my bad) that are due to our lack of an Oracle test framework. Therefore, modifications on my side that had to do with the Oracle codebase were conducted on a best-effort basis and will probably need some testing/rework.

Please keep up your reporting and I will do my best to give you insights and the help I am able to provide on this. It is very nice to see somebody willing to revamp the Oracle side of the project!

Grazie mille, Antonio! That's very helpful of you, and really, there is nothing to apologise for. That's just how it is.
