Hi galaxy devs,

We are in the final stages of deploying a new Galaxy instance. We
downloaded the galaxy-dist version a month ago aprox. We realized that,
when launching a job and deleting it in the middle of the execution
(hitting the Delete button in the history bar) will output the following
error in the logger:

galaxy.jobs.handler DEBUG 2012-11-05 15:56:33,537 Stopping job 45:
galaxy.jobs.handler DEBUG 2012-11-05 15:56:33,537 stopping job 45 in local
galaxy.jobs.handler ERROR 2012-11-05 15:56:33,538 Exception in monitor_step
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/www/galaxy-dist/lib/galaxy/jobs/handler.py", line 298,
in monitor
  File "/usr/local/www/galaxy-dist/lib/galaxy/jobs/handler.py", line 341,
in monitor_step
    self.dispatcher.stop( job )
  File "/usr/local/www/galaxy-dist/lib/galaxy/jobs/handler.py", line 438,
in stop
    self.job_runners[runner_name].stop_job( job )
  File "/usr/local/www/galaxy-dist/lib/galaxy/jobs/runners/local.py", line
180, in stop_job
    if job.get_external_output_metadata():
AttributeError: 'Job' object has no attribute 'get_external_output_metadata'

By copying the definition of get_external_output_data from the Task class
into the Job class, we fixed the problem and now the jobs are terminated
successfully. This is the code I added:

class Job( object ):

    def get_external_output_metadata( self ):
        return None

In this file:


Do you think this fix is correct, or is it a potential problem?

Also, sorry I sent you through this channel, I couldn't find the way of
reporting this on BitBucket.
