Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

AppFuse 2.0 Status

I managed to get most of AppFuse's code moved over to a Maven 2 structure this week. I have tests working in the hibernate/ibatis projects, as well as the service project, but not in the web tier projects yet. I do have everything compiling though. ;-)

If you'd like to review any of the work done thus far, I've uploaded my latest work to:

http://static.appfuse.org/downloads/appfuse2-20060817.zip

The major issue I've encountered to date can be reviewed on the Maven user mailing list. If you happen to try things out, the best thing to do is post feedback to the dev list. I'm considering another device-free weekend, so I may not respond until Monday.

Aren't those Maven2 enabled files on version control somewhere? I can't seem to find them...

Matt,

Wanted a preview of your continuing great work, but I see a bunch of DS_Store files. I don't know Mac's file system but I found this which may help remove confusion in the zip file ...

Preventing Creation of .DS_Store Files

I often use my PowerBook at work to access files on our network, which is all Windows. As a result, our shared files are littered with lots of .DS_Store files. These are usually hidden, but as most power users often do, we like to see all the files, including hidden ones.

Just found a way to prevent the creation of these files on network shares. It basically involves typing a command in Terminal and restarting your computer.

1. Open the Terminal.
2. Type: defaults write com.apple.desktopservices DSDontWriteNetworkStores true
3. Press Return.
4. Restart the computer.

That's it. Now, go forth, and litter your network no more.

UPDATE: At the request of a reader, here is some information on what the .DS_Store file does:

Under Macintosh OSX .DS_Store holds the information which controls the way a folder will be opened; i.e., the shape and size of the window, the position of the window on the desktop and whether file, folder or icon view has been selected. If you were to delete the .DS_Store the folder would revert to the system default next time it is opened and a new blank .DS_Store would appear (invisibly).

I am very interesting on AppFuse (kinda late me think... ) I opt the Struts + Hibernate + Spring combination. And the Maven Approach very intimidating ... As I start my new job as a project manager, I found AppFuse like Rails for Agile Java. Keep up the Great Works!!!

Andreas - this code is not in a source control system at this point. This is mainly due to the fact that I'm waiting for CollabNet to convert AppFuse's CVS to SVN. The conversion is currently scheduled to take place next Monday (August 28th). After that, I hope to check in all the changes and (hopefully) maintain existing files' history. If I hear from other developers that they want to help with this code - I can find a temporary SVN repository.

ok... just asking cause i had some problems with 'mvn compile'... Mainly packages missing at 'AppFuse Spring MVC Module', i.e. package javax.servlet.http does not exist package org.appfuse.model does not exist Previous modules compiled ok...

Hi Matt, You were once in the Ant camp, what made you move to Maven? I've heard that it is supposedly great, but I also understand that it still uses the global library repository.

Posted by Marcus Ahnve on August 22, 2006 at 01:45 AM MDT #

Marcus - I recently answered this same question on another post. See this comment for the reasons supporting my move from Ant to Maven 2.

Matt, thanks for your answer. I've never thought of the centralized repo being like RubyGems, really interesting. I will have to sleep on that. Out of curiosity, does your little math thingy really stop spam? I tried it for my blog without any success; the bots can add this days I guess. I am using Akismet now - awesome.

> Out of curiosity, does your little math thingy really stop spam?

Yes, it stops spam quite well. However, I'm also using Roller, which doesn't seem to be a popular spam target.

Hi Matt: would you give me the most possible date of appfuse 2.0's release launch???. a decision depends of this. Thanks from Argentina

> would you give me the most possible date of appfuse 2.0's release launch?

I can't promise anything because of developer's schedules and current committments. My hope is we can have it done by the end of the year.

Posted by Matt Raible on August 24, 2006 at 01:20 PM MDT #

thanks for your great work, but it doesn't work well here, it says sqlconnector error, so i think i need figure out something else, could you please tell me more about that or make your README.txt file as particular as you can do, ok? thanks again.

Amazing... I just do late-night browsing of this site alone: no wonder there are "Raible Effect" out there! ;) I just give a shot of the SnapShot of AppFuse 2.0 . And then read along the Maven 2 and off course the Continuum too. For newbie like me, it is a great magnitude of me to cruise to those technology. Cool... I also check Mr. Lightbody's Able : it is still Hibernate or iBatis two different design decision isn't it? I better start with Hibernate I suppose. And now, about the framework ... I will learn Spring MVC too, and then steadily will try the Spring Web Flow. Thanks for the Community you build Mr. Raible... May God bless you... ;)
