 If you want Lift to serve images you should put them in /resources/

 If you want to put images say in /img folder at the same level with /
 WEB-INF for example, you just reference tham /img/{image file} ...
 these will not be served by Lift but by web container.

 There is no need for SiteMap when serving other resources.

 Here is what you need for a minimal Person table that contains two

 package com.jacksdomain.model

 import net.liftweb.mapper._

 class Person extends LongKeyedMapper[Person] with IdPK {
  def getSingleton = Person

  object name extends MappedString(this, 100)
 }

 object Person extends Person with LongKeyedMetaMapper[Person] {
  override def dbTableName = person
 }

 You can then do things like this:

 val person = Person.find(1)   // retrieve the person with id = 1 from
 the database
 val person = Person.find(By(Person.name, Jack)) // retrieve the
 person with name = Jack from the database
 val people = Person.findAll() // retrieve all people form the database
 val people = Person.findAll(By_(Person.id, 10)) // retrieve all the
 people with id  10

[Lift] InputStream to String

2009-11-21 Thread jack
I have seen this problem around and it seems basic but I haven't found
a solution. I need to turn an InputStream into a String. There seems
to be a bug in the Source class that fails for large files so I don't
want to use that (though it is an elegant approach).

The following doesn't work because reader.readLine returns Unit and
not null, as in Java.

 val reader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(is))
 var responseBody = 

 var line = reader.readLine()

 while(line != null){
responseBody  += line
line = reader.readLine()
 }

return responseBody

What to do?

 Which changes are you thinking about?


  Not to annoy him. As
  1.X to 2.X is a big enough change that people who don't want to move can
  stay with a stable 1.X and those of us who are running HEAD/TRUNK
 whatever
  these new fangled git kids call it nowadays can keep racing along.
 

 I'm not sure we have the resources to support a 1.X and a 2.X and a 2.7.x
 and a 2.8.x branch.  If there are any folks who want to step up and
 maintain
 a branch (or if there's money to hire someone), it's something worth a
 discussion, but I don't think there's anyone I know of who could maintain a
 1.X branch if we're going to get radical with a 2.X.  I think it's one
 branch.

   The current Lift is not a major change to Lift 1.0, it's a minor
   progression and a lot of tuning of the developer experience.
  
  
   There are breaking changes to the API which in the version policy
  suggested
   by me (the OSGi way) means increasing the major version number. OK, of
   course we need not stick to this particular version policy, but it
 would
  be
   beneficial to have one. What about: Increasing the minor version number
   (e.g. 1.0 - 1.1) means breaking changes to the API. Increasing the
 micro
   version number (e.g. 1.1.0 - 1.1.1) means *no* breaking changes to the
  API.

Re: [Lift] Re: How do I properly read a value from a cookie?

A refuting piece of evidence from the guy who created nulls. How cool is

  that it's not null--which is a source of many bugs

 After a bold statement like this, one can't help but wonder how
 programmers manage to ship software in all the other languages. :-)
 Come to think of it, after working on a couple of pretty large ASP.NET
 projects (~50 devs), I haven't once seen a bug which was caused by the
 semantics of retrieving the cookie or URL parameter values. I'm not
 saying the Box thing doesn't have its uses, I'm just saying that in
 this particular case it's a pain in the ass and overkill.


 Before judging, spend a month or two writing idomatic Scala code rather
 than fighting with it.

 In your example, I reduced the lines of code, made your code more logical
 and reduced the McCabe complexity (see
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclomatic_complexity).  The higher the
 McCabe complexity, the more defects there are in software.

 So, even in a trivial 20 line program, using the Scala idioms shortens code
 and generally makes code easier to read and easier to maintain.

 And we're not the only ones who think null is a problem... the guy that
 invented null thinks it's a huge problem:

  As others may have said, the difference between a Box and a value that
 may be null is that both may or may not contain what you want it to have;
 but in one case the compiler lets you assume that it does--that it's not

  Programming presents a tension between type safety and conciseness, and
 Scala does an amazing job of being extremely type safe and extremely
 concise. But type safety comes first.

Why can't findCookie return a simple, unboxed HTTPCookie object or
null if cookie is not found?
Why does the value inside a cookie need to also be Box'ed?
 
For the sake of comparison, here's how you do the same thing in RoR:
v = cookies[cookieName]
// Do something with the cookie
 
or ASP.NET:
var c = Request.Cookies[CookieName]
if(c != null) {
  var v = c.Value
  // Do something with the cookie

I fail to see why Lift should be more complicated.

[Lift] Comet Actor

2009-11-13 Thread jack

I have a some code in a CometActor that I want to run right after
render is called for the first time. What is the best way to do this?
I could set a boolean variable in the render method and then send a
message back to the CometActor to tell it to run the code. I suspect
there is a better way?

 Your pom specifies lift 1.0, not 1.1 for the majority of lift modules. You
 are using 1.1-M6 for lift-textile. In addition, you don't have the snapshots
 repository configured.

 To fix this, first add the snapshot repository to repositories:

 repository
   idscala-tools.org.snapshots/id
   nameScala-Tools Maven2 Repository for Snapshots/name
   urlhttp://scala-tools.org/repo-snapshots/url
   snapshots/
 /repository

 Then switch *all* your lift-* dependencies to 1.1-SNAPSHOT and your scala
 version to 2.7.7. I use a property for the lift version to use, myself, like
 this:

 properties
 scala.version2.7.7/scala.version
 lift.version1.1-SNAPSHOT/lift.version
 /properties

 ...

 dependency
 groupIdnet.liftweb/gropuId
 artifactIdlift-util/artifactId
 version${lift.version}/version}
 /dependency

 (and so on, for each lift-* dependency)

 I'm not sure what would happen exactly if you have mixed versions of the
 lift modules, but It Can't Be Good.

 Hope that helps,

  David,
 
  I have attached my code. It runs but does not behave as I intended it to.
  The code does a web search on the term scala and displays a list of
 URLs
  of the results. Next to each URL it says Page Length : -1. A process is
  running in the background which takes each URL, goes out and gets the
 page
  and takes the length of the page. The length of that page is then
 supposed
  to immediately appear on the page next to that URL. I put the lengths on
 a
  queue, as they come in, and I have the Comet page poll the queue and
 display
  the results. It would probably be better to have the results send a
 message
  to the Comet class so the page is only re-rendered when there is a change
  but for now I am polling.
 
  I can see the lengths coming in and being put on the queue, but the Comet
  page is not getting them till they are all retrieved. (This takes way too
  long and nothing changes on the screen till its too late). I need them to
  appear as they come in. Occasionally I can see a length being retrieved
 and
  the Comet page finds it but even then it is not displayed until all the
  lengths are in.   I know this is not very clear but I think it will be
 clear
  from the code.

[Lift] Re: CometActor and render

2009-11-12 Thread Jack Widman
Will do. One more small question How do I send a message to the Comet Actor
from another class? Can the CometActor be an object instead of a class? In
the code

X ! messageToCometActor,   what is X? I don't have a variable that holds the
instance of the CometActor.

 Lift instantiates a new CometActor each time it needs one.  If you have a
 singleton CometActor, you'd be sharing state across all sessions and that
 would be impossible to manage.



 X ! messageToCometActor,   what is X? I don't have a variable that holds
 the instance of the CometActor.


 If the CometActor is a listener to another service, you can register the
 instance of the CometActor as a listener during localSetup and unregister
 during localShutdown.

 (if only briefly) what you saw about my actor code that is wrong.


 The act method in an actor sets up the receive/react loop.  It is not a
 background thread in and of itself.  Actors are not background threads
 they are things that process messages sent to them with the ! method.  You
 set up the message handling in the receive/react loop.

 Further, mixing method calls and Actor message handling is wicked dangerous
 (especially without synchronized blocks).  Choose either a traditional
 threading model or an Actor-based model, but not both.

one more thing: I also ran the code without the piece that retrieves

takes) and then return a random number. This worked fine. I can't see
what the difference is.

 Jack,

 I reproduced your code and it seems to work fine.  I've enclosed a
 working copy.

 Some comments about your code:

- The foos variable and the foo variable may be getting confused in
the code... the render method may be rendering the same thing based on 
 the
unchanging foos variable.
- Doing null testing is a sign that you have logic errors in your

[Lift] using Dispatch library for Http

2009-11-05 Thread jack

I'm using the Dispatch Databinder library for Http.  http://bit.ly/NPWcW

My code is this simple method.

 def testCheckPage(url:String):String = {
try {
  var http = new Http
  var request = new Request
(url)
  val req_with_agent = request : Map(User-Agent - Mozilla/
5.0)
  val responseBody = Http (req_with_agent as_str)
  responseBody.length.toString
} catch {
   case ex: Exception = {
 Message:  + ex.getMessage
   }
}
  }

For some urls, e.g., http://bae.cf.huffingtonpost.com/ , an exception
is thrown but the exception message is null. Any ideas?

 From the Scaladoc for scala.util.matching.Regex:

 You can use special pattern syntax construct (?idmsux-idmsux) to switch
 various regex compilation options like CASE_INSENSITIVE or UNICODE_CASE.
 See java.util.regex.Pattern javadoc for details.

 Probably better to ask Scala questions on the Scala list(s).

 This question has been asked quite a number of times recently on list.

 Change:

 version1.0/version

 on the liftweb dependencies in your pom.xml to be:

 version1.1-SNAPSHOT/version

 That will give you the latest HEAD build. If you want a known point in
 time, use M6:

 version1.1-M6/version

 I don't know what a source is, but you really, really have to be careful

 Hello everyone,
 I am pretty much brand new to lift and scala, and I come from a non-
 framework jsp/java servlet/hibernate background. I've been reading
 this board, Beginning Scala, The lift book, and googling how to use
 the lift framework, but I can't seem to find some basic info.


 That's why we're here.  Ask away!


 Please
 help me out. I know these are very basic questions, and posting on the
 group was a last resort after coming up empty on searches. I want to
 start off with best practices since I'm beginning from scratch.


 Doing some searching is great, but asking on list is heartily encouraged.



 1. Directory structure - where is everything?
 Looking at the PocketChange example and making a basic lift 1.0
 project via netbeans, I know that the DB schema go under model, the
 snippets in snippet, the templates in the corresponding webapp/
 templates-hidden directory, and the web pages in the webapp
 directory.

 What I don't know is where /classpath or lift:CSS.blueprint are
 actually going. Is classpath still going to src/main/resources/
 toserve, or is that old info? Looking at the default.html template,
 there's no jquery.js or CSS files in a toserve directory; in fact
 there is no toserve directory period, so I made my own. Also I see
 lift:CSS.blueprint, and I have no idea where that's going. I don't
 see any CSS class with blueprint method, but the syntax looks clean
 and I'd like to add my own custom stylesheet in the same fashion.


 The /classpath stuff is served out of the Lift JAR file rather than out of
 a directory.  If you want to have your own CSS, just put it in
 /src/webapp/css/xxx.css and then refer to /css/xxx.css in your web page.



 2. Dynamically generated HTML - what's the best practice, and how to
 do it?


 Snippets are the way that Lift does dynamic HTML.  It's not a templating
 system, but a binding between your XHTML file and methods on classes that
 substitute the dynamically generated HTML.


 I would like to know what the lift equivalent is for the following:

 a href=%=request.getContextPath()%/home/index.jspIndex/a


 In the case of Lift, you don't have to do this.  a
 href=/home/indexindex/a will automatically be rewritten for the correct
 context path. No work on your part.


 That's the way I was taught to link web pages together because it
 avoids hardcoding the page location, but the main point is the stuff
 inside %=...%. It looks like the lift uses {...}, but this example
 from the lift book causes an IllegalArgumentException (bad XML
 according to the msgs I've found on this board):
 link type=text/css rel=stylesheet href=
 {LiftRules.resourceServerPath + /css/style.css } /


 If you're writing Scala, then you can do substitutions like the one above,
 but Lift's views are not like JSP templates.  In the above case, you can
 simply say:
 link type=text/css rel=stylesheet href=/css/style.css/

 And it will be automatically updated based on the context path.


 How do I go about making this work, and in what scenarios should I be
 using this {...} approach vs snippets?

 Note: An earlier example in the lift book used href=/classpath/css/
 style.css, but later on said that the 1st method is better. The basic
 lift archetype references /classpath everywhere as well, so I don't
 know what to believe.

 I guess those are the glaring questions I have right now. In addition,
 what are some common search terms I could use to find this sort of
 basic info on the board, or where can I find best practices info and
 more examples of working sites? I'd rather see what documentation/
 tutorials already exists for beginners before I send more messages for
 the board, but my main issue is knowing whether or not I'm getting the
 right information; most every lift example document/wiki/tutorial I've
 seen is outdated code or incomplete. I'm looking for more code
 examples that comply with lift's current evolution. The lift book is
 helpful, but I also feel a little left out when I read it because I
 get the feeling the book assumes the reader knows certain lift and
 scala basics that are obvious to more seasoned users, but not to...me.

 Thank you so much for your help!


 Sure thing.

 Welcome to the community.

 Thanks,

 David

[Lift] Re: The quality of the Lift list [was: Don't shoot the non-XML messenger ...]

2009-10-14 Thread Jack Widman
 at each
  insertion point as to whether the incoming String needs to be escaped.
   Because Strings are untyped, you don't know what they mean, if they're
  safe to be passed directly or if they need to be escaped.  On the other
  hand, keeping the output structure in XML, you know when you're promoting
 a
  String to an XML element and by default, it's done securely.  The
 developer
  has to affirmatively do something that will introduce a vulnerability.
   Here's an example:
 
  val inputFromBadUser = scriptalert('boo');/scriptval
  vulnerableStringTemplating = divThe other guy said:
  +inputFromBadUser+/div
  val safeXMLTemplating = divThe other guy said: {inputFromBadUser}/div
 
  Sure, it's possible to use the Unescaped class for a String and it's
  possible to parse the user's input as XML, but both of these cases are
 based
  on doing something other than the default.  The default if you're using
 XML
  for XHTML templating is that things are secure.  The default if you're
 using
  Strings to represent the output is is insecure unless the developer does
 the
  right thing at each insertion point.
 
  I thank you all for your participation in this community.  It's the kind
 of
  place I like being part of and that's because of the quality of the
 people
  and the discussions.  I want to make sure as we grow from 1,400+ members
 to
  5,000 members that the group retains the quality and energy that it has.

  Folks,
 
  It is not lightly that I ban someone from the group... this is only the
  second time I've banned a substantive poster.  I'm going to discuss some
 of
  the process and then touch on some of the substance of the questions
 that
  the poster was getting at.
 
  The Lift community, reflected on this list, is an inquisitive, friendly
  place where people who have a passion for building great web apps
 converge
  and contribute to making Lift a really great open source framework.
  Newbies
  are the lifeblood of the group because they come with fresh perspectives
 and
  new ways of looking at things.  Questions from newbies help us refine
 and
  enhance Lift and the associated documentation.  Folks who are building
  production apps on Lift receive the fastest turn-around because these
 folks
  are betting their careers and their enterprises (even enterprises of
 one) on
  Lift and they deserve the best support in the industry for taking this
 risk.
 
  A big part of why this community is successful (in terms of size,
 quality of
  discussion, and quality of results) is because we keep the quality of
  discussion high.  How do we do this?  The folks who have been on the
 list
  generally keep the level of discussion to the Lift ideals.  We reward
  newbies with quick answers and encourage friendly discourse.  We are
  generally slower to respond to those that are less reflective of the
 list
  ideals.  I warn folks who are pushing boundaries (usually privately, but
  every once in a while publicly) and where the line is.
 
  In this case, nothing worked.  The poster was neither asking questions,
  giving usable feedback, or being polite in his engagement with the folks
 on
  the list.  I received a substantial number of private communications
 about
  this poster (which is pretty rare), and I took action.
 
  In terms of the substance, let me address to threat issue first.  I

  Folks,
 
  It is not lightly that I ban someone from the group... this is only the
  second time I've banned a substantive poster.  I'm going to discuss
 some of
  the process and then touch on some of the substance of the questions
 that
  the poster was getting at.
 
  The Lift community, reflected on this list, is an inquisitive, friendly
  place where people who have a passion for building great web apps
 converge
  and contribute to making Lift a really great open source framework.
  Newbies
  are the lifeblood of the group because they come with fresh
 perspectives and
  new ways of looking at things.  Questions from newbies help us refine
 and
  enhance Lift and the associated documentation.  Folks who are building
  production apps on Lift receive the fastest turn-around because these
 folks
  are betting their careers and their enterprises (even enterprises of
 one) on
  Lift and they deserve the best support in the industry for taking this
 risk.
 
  A big part of why this community is successful (in terms of size,
 quality of
  discussion, and quality of results) is because we keep the quality of
  discussion high.  How do we do this?  The folks who have been on the
 list
  generally keep the level of discussion to the Lift ideals.  We reward
  newbies with quick answers and encourage friendly discourse.  We are
  generally slower to respond to those that are less reflective of the
 list
  ideals.  I warn folks who are pushing boundaries (usually privately,
 but
  every once in a while publicly) and where the line is.
 
  In this case, nothing worked.  The poster was neither asking questions,
  giving usable feedback, or being polite in his engagement with the
 folks on
  the list.  I received a substantial number of private communications
 about
  this poster (which is pretty rare), and I took action.
 
  In terms of the substance, let me address to threat issue first.  I
  threatened to ban the poster from the list.  Perhaps DHH or Martin
 would not
  make such a threat.  I am very sure that the quality of discussion on
 the
  Lift list is higher than that on the Rails list (one of the reasons I

 Hey jack,

 As I said before, I think the design you have is wrong if your needing to

 for using shutdown almost certianly clarifies an incorrect design.

 Personally I think you could use Ajax for this an have a much simpler
 design of system... I would tend to recomend using comet when you have some
 server side state that changes and needs update client side continually.
 Kinda feel it's hammer to crack a nut here, but perhaps that's just me.

 Hope you get it sorted :-)

 You are correct that Comet is a way to update information after the page

 snippet. A snippet is an XML to XML function.

 Let me start again. Maybe I am misunderstanding when Comet should be
 used. In my application, people search for web pages. I do a lot of
 processing for each resulting page. First I just display the links and
 then as the processing is finished, the links on the page are
 automatically modified with the data I just found for each link. This
 is all working fine.

 But, the session is being shared among all users so if I make one
 search in one browser, and then make another search from another
 browser, I get the results from the first browser.

 David suggested I name each CometActor differently. That is not
 working, though maybe I am not doing it right.

First, there's no way to determine if the browser window is closed.
 
Second, *DO NOT* send a ShutDown message to the CometActor.  This is
 an
internal Lift piece of housekeeping.  If you do this, you will break

 Don't do it.  (There is a reason the message is not private, but it

not be used for this purpose.)
 
CometActors can be named:
 
lift:comet type=Search name={searchString}/
 
You can then have a separate CometActor for each searchString.
  Voila...
you get what you want.  Now, how do you make then CometActor go away
 when
it's not being used anymore?
 
In your CometActor:
 override def lifespan: Box[TimeSpan] = Full(3 minutes)
 
That means if a CometActor does not appear on a page for 3 minutes,
 it's
removed from the session.  If the named CometActor is requested
 again, a new
one will be created.

it would be good if I could shut one down somehow when the user searches on
a new term. Timeout won't work because there is no way to know how long it
will take.

Maybe I could just kill all the actors directly that are doing the
processing.

 CometActors can be named:

 In your CometActor:

 That means if a CometActor does not appear on a page for 3 minutes, it's
 removed from the session.  If the named CometActor is requested again, a new
 one will be created.

[Lift] Re: execute code when browser is closed

2009-10-05 Thread Jack Widman
In my app, when the user is done searching on one keyword, they click a link
which takes them back to the main search page. Thats the time when I wanted
the CometActor to stop. Otherwise there will be too many threads floating
around and performance will suffer.

 That's going to be even worse.  You'll kill something out from under
 Lift... it's going to cause a huge pile of pain.

 You can remove an Actor from the session and that will cause ShutDown to be
 sent to it, but depending on how the Actor was written it's not going to
 stop processing its mailbox.

 Bottom line... there's no way to tell if a user is not looking at a page
 with an Actor anymore.  The best way to deal with that is timing the Actor
 out.  It's going to take time (your timeout period), but it's the best way
 to do it.

Good. Only thing is that if their job was to start an actor to go out and
search some pages, say, then 'stop your job' means '   'call your 'exit'
method, no?Not trying to be a wise guy. I actually have a number of VCs
lined up to look at my app. Overall I am very glad to be using Lift. On the
Comet alone it save me a LOT of time.
Of course, I  have a lot to learn.

[Lift] Re: execute code when browser is closed

2009-10-05 Thread jack

Let me start again. Maybe I am misunderstanding when Comet should be
used. In my application, people search for web pages. I do a lot of
processing for each resulting page. First I just display the links and
then as the processing is finished, the links on the page are
automatically modified with the data I just found for each link. This
is all working fine.

But, the session is being shared among all users so if I make one
search in one browser, and then make another search from another
browser, I get the results from the first browser.

David suggested I name each CometActor differently. That is not
working, though maybe I am not doing it right.

[Lift] Re: execute code when browser is closed

2009-10-05 Thread Jack Widman
So I am using a snippet like this
 def go:NodeSeq = {
var term:String = S.param(term).openOr()
lift:surround with=default at=content
lift:comet type=JoopComet name={term}
auth:joop/auth:joop
/lift:comet
/lift:surround

And the term is indeed different each time. But I am still getting the same
results from two different browsers with different terms.

 You are correct that Comet is a way to update information after the page is
 loaded. I think there's a simpler way using ajax, but I haven't explored
 those areas of Lift yet. But meanwhile you need to have the xml specifying
 the comet actor be dynamic. So you need to have that xml be generated by a
 snippet. A snippet is an XML to XML function.

[Lift] a very simple question

I put the line

println(dude)

in a Comet class write under the class declaration.

i.e.

class JoopComet extends CometActor with CometListenee {

 println(INSIDE COMET CLASS)


When the class runs and all the activity is complete, I hit the back
button and that loads the JoopComet class again.

But I do not see dude printed.

[Lift] Re: a very simple question

2009-10-04 Thread Jack Widman
Well my app is a search application. You search for certain web pages and I
do some processing after the results are displayed. Thats why I am using
Comet. Certain information is added to each result link.
I want the user to be able to either hit the back button or click on alink
that goes to the search page again. When they enter a search term and click
submit, I want to load the CometActor class again.

Do you think sending a ShutDown message will accomplish this?
After the session is killed, how do I get the CometActor to automatically
load again. Do I send the message and then redirect to the page?

I am just not comfortable yet with the mechanics of how Lift handles comet.
Thanks in advance.

Jack

 If memory serves, the comet actor lives on in the session scope until

 Can you show your code?

Atsuhiko,

The way I have modified the code, each thread is returning its Package
object at different times. But its seems the screen updates only when
they all have completed. Could you tell me what piece of the code
makes the screen update?
Thanks.

Atsuhiko,
How would I make one small change? I would like each link to refresh only
once and I would like that to happen as soon as the TSCatcher objects catch
a package. Thanks in advance.

 How about the attached src.zip?
 It will refresh each links only once.
 A package will be sent from JoopComet#localSetup and
 that method will be invoked only once during the life of JoopComet.
 This means that even if you leave test.html page and re-vist there,
 that method will not be invoked again.

[Lift] Re: CometActor timeout problem

2009-09-27 Thread jack

I am still having this problem so I will post a simple example. Say I
want to display a list of the numbers 1 to 100. And suppose I have an
object Foo and a method bar, which takes an integer and returns an
integer. And bar takes about 10 seconds to return. So I want to
display the numbers, run Foo.bar on each of them in the background,
and then update the display via comet to replace each integer with bar
of it. I got the Clock example to work and I think I understand what
is going on there. Could somebody show me how to do this example in
terms of the Clock example? Or just a few lines of code to suggest how
to do it?

 So the page never gets rendered? I would recommend using actors and

  Is there some general principle about launching threads from a

Yes, the page never gets rendered. I am actually using Actors. I will post a
code example tonight. Thanks for your response.
