repository

Repository commonly refers to a storage location, often for safety or preservation. read more at WikiPedia

  • As the market for Business Process Management (BPM) matures, organizations implementing BPM solutions observe the proliferation of BPEL (Business Process Execution Language), WSDL (Web Services Description Language), and other forms of XML documents. Storing, finding, and using these documents is laborious and inefficient. BPEL Repository has several features that resolve these problems:

    • an extensible framework that currently supports several standard XML files for BPEL, WSDL, and other XML schemas
    • support for access to the stored XML data as Java objects, which makes it easier for Java programs to process the data
    • ability to query the data using an object-oriented query language: Object Constraint Language (OCL)
    • an Eclipse plug-in for visually interacting with and administering the repository of XML data.

    Doxygen phpDocumentator phpunit-logo teamcity512 maven4php

    Maven for PHP uses the power of Maven for building, reporting on and creating documentations of PHP projects. It adapts the Maven build lifecycle to the PHP world while fully supporting PHP 4 and PHP 5. PHP for Maven uses PHPUnitfor unit testing and doxygenfor creating the api documentation.
    Use a PHP library project to create a library that can be used by other PHP libraries or PHP web projects. Use a PHP web project to create a standalone web project.

    So I quickly describe what I did install on my root server (OpenSuse 11.X)

    My Objectives: being able to build all my Joomla! component using best agile development practices

    “Specific tools and techniques such as continuous integration, automated or xUnit test, pair programming, test driven development, design patterns, domain-driven design, code refactoring and other techniques are often used to improve quality and enhance project agility.”

    Maven

    While not needed as TeamCity has an integrated Maven engine, I would like to use an external MAVEN version, in order to have the latest version and living dangerously on the edge!

    So I download

    # wgethttp://apache.mirror.testserver.li/maven/binaries/apache-maven-2.1.0-bin.tar.gz

    And unpack

    # tar xvf apache-maven-2.1.0-bin.tar.gz

    Since I would like to avoid having a version number in my configuration build path, I create a symlink

    # ln -s apache-maven-2.1.0 maven

    I just now tell TeamCity to use my own Maven version, by specifying the Maven Home Path

    teamcity.maven4php 

    phpDocumentor

    phpDocumentor is an open source documentation generator written in PHP. It automatically parses PHP source code and produces readable API and source code documentation in a variety of formats. phpDocumentor generates documentation based on PHPDoc-formatted comments and the structure of the source code itself. It supports documentation of both object-oriented and procedural code. phpDocumentor can create documentation in HTML, PDF, CHM or Docbook formats.

    Can be installed using PEAR, simply run

    # pear upgrade PhpDocumentor
    downloading PhpDocumentor-1.4.2.tgz...

    PHPUnit

    PHPUnit is a unit testing framework for the PHP programming language. Created by Sebastian Bergmann, PHPUnit is one of the xUnit family of frameworks that originated with Kent Beck's SUnit.

    Can be installed using PEAR, simply run

    # pear upgrade PHPunit

    DOxygen

    Doxygen is a documentation generator for C++, C, Java, Objective-C, Python, IDL (Corba and Microsoft flavors), Fortran, VHDL, PHP, C#, and to some extent D. It runs on most Unix-like systems, including Mac OS X, as well as on Windows. The first version of Doxygen borrowed some code of an old version of DOC++; later, the Doxygen code was rewritten by Dimitri van Heesch. from www.doxygen.org

    Artifactory

    Prepare Artifactory by adding new Maven for PHP repositories

    At http://maven.waltercedric.com/artifactory/webapp/repositoryconfig.html

    As Admin user (you cant go to that links without being an admin!), add 2 new repositories

    teamcity.maven4php.artifactory

    In Maven settings.xml

    In order to use Artifactory at his best (proxy and caching of remote repositories), I have a Maven settings.xml that contains ONLY

    # vi /home/teamcity/.m2/settings.xml

    <activeProfiles>
      <activeProfile>cedric-profile</activeProfile>
    </activeProfiles>

    Attention: Artifactory WIKI tell to use http://maven.waltercedric.com/artifactory/plugins-releases and not http://maven.waltercedric.com/artifactory/plugins-releases/ on my HOST with mod_proxy it made an error 404 If I do not add a slash at the end. Try with your host before, you will gain a lot of time by checking if the URL is valid!

    Note that http://url:port/artifactory/repo/ is a virtual repositories that proxy all external repositories

     

    Eclipse

    Use SolarJoomla (hopefully to be distributed this week) to have a running Eclipse, PDT, Maven 4 PHP environment, Mylyn, TeamCity in no time

    Lets build!

    First I create a new Maven Project with Archetype “Maven for PHP” “PHP5 libraries”

    In TeamCity I did create a new project “Joomla 15 components plugins and modules” and a new Build “MyGuestbook”.

    teamcity.maven4php.myguestbook

    The first build failed with

    [INFO] PHP Warning: require_once(PHPUnit/TextUI/TestRunner.php): failed to open stream: Operation not permitted

    This is because of my PHP security restrictions, I only allow file to be opened from /home/teamcity/

    So I just add

    /home/teamcity/TeamCity/buildAgent/ to my open_basedirin my php.ini

    ; open_basedir, if set, limits all file operations to the defined directory
    ; and below.  This directive makes most sense if used in a per-directory
    ; or per-virtualhost web server configuration file. This directive is
    ; *NOT* affected by whether Safe Mode is turned On or Off.
    open_basedir = /srv/www/vhosts:/tmp:/home/teamcity/TeamCity/buildAgent/

    To be continued

    So long an empty PHP project is building successfully, tomorrow I will try to make a REAL Joomla! component build there!

    As soon as It works, and all my Joomla! components are running in TeamCity, I will try to achieve the same goal in Bamboo, why? because it is simply . . .fun!

    I compiled here a list of the major Apache Maven repositories (read an intro to repositories) for You, You can contact me, or post a comment if you would like to add a missing one to the list.

  • git-stitch-repo

    Stitch several git repositories (merging git repository) into a git fast-import stream from Git-FastExport

    Installation

    $ perl -MCPAN -e shell
      
    cpan[6]> i /fastexport/
    	Distribution    BOOK/Git-FastExport-0.107.tar.gz
    	Module  < Git::FastExport        (BOOK/Git-FastExport-0.107.tar.gz)
    	Module  < Git::FastExport::Block (BOOK/Git-FastExport-0.107.tar.gz)
    	Module  < Git::FastExport::Stitch (BOOK/Git-FastExport-0.107.tar.gz)
    	4 items found
    
    cpan[6]> install BOOK/Git-FastExport-0.107.tar.gz
    
    cpan[6]> CTRL-D
    

    Usage

    git-stitch-repo will process the output of git fast-export --all --date-order on the git repositories given on the command-line, and create a stream suitable for git fast-import that will create a new repository containing all the commits in a new commit tree that respects the history of all the source repositories. Typical usage is like this:
    git clone https://github.com/xxxx/A.git
    git clone https://github.com/xxxxx/B.git
    
    $ ls
    A B
    
    mkdir result
    cd result
    git init
    git-stitch-repo ../A:folderA ../B:folderB | git fast-import
    
    # pull both repository in a new branch for examples
    git checkout -b newBranch
    git pull . master-A
    git pull . master-B
    
    # when finished delete unused branches
    git branch -d master-A 
    git branch -d master-B
