[Zope-dev] Problem

2000-07-25 Thread Anvita



Hello Sir,

I want to create a portal for indian languages 
using zope. The problem is that the programms which handles all font related 
issues or textto speech conversion etc for the site (for Indian Languages) 
are in C and Visual Basic and the programmes are too lenthy that we cann't 
rewrite them. Kindly tell me is there any way to use tham with zope. 


Thanking you,

2000-07-25 Thread jdiebold

Hi, 


I want to create a persistent List (I want to store data for a long time 
without using a relational database). I have found source of such list but 
I don't know how to use it. 

The things that I want to know are : 
-- how could I use personnal object (in Python language)
-- how could I store and retrieve these object ?

I Hope that anybody can help me thanks...

[Zope-dev] (no subject)

2000-07-25 Thread Bruno Nana

Hi,

I have one problem with a Zmethod.

Here is the method:

select *,summe=sum(count(*))
from neuigkeiten
where
(
username like '%!--#var suche--%' or
autorloginname like '%!--#var suche--%' or
headline like '%!--#var suche--%' or
textfeld like '%!--#var suche--%')
order by headline

That is i want to select some data from database and save the number of data
who are found in summe.
There is no error at this level, but there is a problem when i list the
result in the dtml document. There are more data as i need.

Please would you help me to resolv this problem!!

Thank

Bruno

[Zope-dev] Standard Error Messages (was Re: [Zope-dev] Incorrect Padding?)

2000-07-25 Thread Chris Withers

Steve Alexander wrote:

Can someone enlighten me as to what this does?

Does it reset the HTTP response code?

Is _error_html something that gets the acquired standard_error_message?

If not, it should do ;-)

Has anyone made any progress on getting Unauthorized errors to use
standard_error_message?

Here's hoping...

[Zope-dev] Use ZODB3 and ZCatalog for indexing purposes

2000-07-25 Thread Thomas Weholt

Hi,

I'm wondering about using ZODB3 and ZCatalog for a CD-indexing project. The
actual cd-roms will seldom change after they've been registered, and I'd
like to have some sort of auto-full-text-search feature.
How does ZODB3 and ZCatalog fit in this picture? I'm NOT making a
Zope-product yet, just a plain python-script, using ZODB/ZCatalog for
storage. Later, the thing will have a Zope-interface, but for now I'm having
so much trouble with my current implementation using PostgreSQL, mostly due
to the fact that I cannot get full-text-searching, that I really need some
progress now. I'm dealing with plain python objects the entire time, but
searching is alpha/omega in this case and will break it completly if not
implemented correctly.

Any hints, tips, flames or just emails sent out of boredome, I'm a lonely
coder who needs a stinkin' break before I go completly nuts, so any feedback
will be great. :-

Have you seen the Zope on CDROM howto?

Try searching on zope.org (when it's back up that is) for it.

I don't think it's relevant actually.  WHat you do want is Jim Fulton's talk
about ZODB from IPC8 - search zope.org for that.

[Zope-dev] Memebrship User management

2000-07-25 Thread Bill Anderson

OK, so I have been working on a set of user management methods for Membership by 
ta. I
have it where I can see a list of users, and their roles. now, what I need is a way to
modify Roles.

So, looking into the source, I see that roles exists (as currently implemented) as
__roles. This means that you can't modify roles from the web.

So, I added this to the MemberMixin:

def changeRoles(self,roles):
self.__roles=roles
return self.getRoles()

Restartted zope, yadda yadda. Now, it appears to be setting the roles (if I return
self.__roles I see the changes), but the changes are not persistent, since the roles 
don't
seem to be changed. The above will return the same roles the user had prior to the 
call to
changeRoles. :(

So, thinking back to the transactional nature of the ZODB, I added a:
get_transaction().commit(1)
...before the return ... no luck.

Then tried:
get_transaction().commit(1)
...same result.

Now, it is getting early (you know, once you past 'late' ;^) ... and my brain is 
shutting
down. So I figured I would post this to the list, to see if anyone has any bright (or
not-so-bright) ideas. Yeah, I know the above is a total kludge, but I wan't to get this
working before re-implenting a 'bettr' default PUS, to make sure I understand what I am
doing. {:^)=

[Zope-dev] Now; - problems using ZODB/ZCatalog in Python

2000-07-25 Thread Thomas Weholt

First off, sorry for posting a huge, stinkin' post like this, but instead of
posting ten times trying to explain what I do, I post this once and hope
somebody can point out what's wrong and I'll leave you all alone, at least
for a while. 

The example is from the Catalog outside Zope-tutorial available at Zope.org.
I'm using Zope 2.2.0. This might have been written for Zope 2.1.6. I dunno.

I understand the error message, just don't why it is raised. If I should
call some form of commit() or close(), where should this be done?

And, by the way, does Catalog support different kinds of searches, like
matching all the search-words, some, does the order count ? Can this options
be set, if any exists?

Anyway, thanks for your patience and bandwidth.
Thomas

RE: [Zope-dev] Use ZODB3 and ZCatalog for indexing purposes

2000-07-25 Thread Jens Vagelpohl

thomas,

putting together a zope python product to represent a CD isn't hard at
all. if you go the product route you'll be able to index and search
across all attributes of the CD object using ZCatalog.

check out the "boring product" at
http://www.zope.org/Members/gtk/Boring/HowTo-Boring, it is a good guide
to the framework making up a zope product.

thomas,

this error message is raised when the zope instance that contains the
ZODB you're trying to work with is already running (and thereby put its
own lock on the ZODB). are you trying to execute this script while zope
is running? you need to shut it down first.

You can either use the PersistentMapping object that comes with Zope 
"from ZODB.PersistentMapping import PersistentMapping" or 
AndrewWilcox's http://www.zope.org/Members/AndrewWilcox/PersistentListDict. 
PersistentMapping is limited to string keys only, which is sufficient most of the 
time. 
Just create a PersistentMapping in your Zope class and use it as if it was 
a regular python dictionary. PersistentMapping takes care of setting 
the necessary attributes for it to be persistent.

Alternative you can use a TinyTable directly in Zope for storing a table.

Regards,
Johan Carlsson

You're definitely looking for this article.  It explains very clearly

[Zope-dev] Nameconflict 'Property' and Object in Folder

2000-07-25 Thread Martin Grönemeyer

Hi all,

has there some discussions about a name conflict, if I start to add an
object to a folder with an object-id wich is also a Property of the folder ?

In the method _checkId of the ObjectManager e.g. the folder is checked with
hasatrr(this,id). And this is true if there exists a property with the same
name as the object-id. I see no workaround, because a property or an object
are attributs of the folder.

Any comments ?

[Zope-dev] ZCatalog and ZEO

2000-07-25 Thread Johan Carlsson


I have started to use ZCatalog for a great deal of thing,
but I'm a little bit conserned about scalability.
If I whan to move my applications to a ZEO configuration
how will my ZCatalogs be distributed.
I use ZCatalogs alote and they may become quite large,
so what will happen when a ZCatalog is updated, for instance
if a new object registers it self and gets indexed.

1. The ZEO server sends expiration messages to all ZEO clients.
2. The ZEO clients then new to get updated ZCatalog from the server.

Does the clients have to get the all of the ZCatalog or just the indexes
thats been updated?
Does it have to get the whole index or can it just get the updated information?
Are there any "pattern/howto" to use when working with Catalog that will optimize
for scalability?

Johan Carlsson

RE: [Zope-dev] Stuff hanging off user not in cookies

 Is there are reason why configuration info for the user

Have you looked at the "Better User Management" proposal? One 
aspect of it is a better level of lowest-common-denominator 
support for extended attributes. I think that a prerequisite 
for what you are asking for is a well-defined interface for 
hanging extended attrs on users that can work reliably (or 
fail in a well-defined way) for whatever flavor of user 
source you are using.

[Zope-dev] How can Catalog index all parts/words of a attribute

2000-07-25 Thread Thomas Weholt

Hi,

I try to use Catalog with a object stored in ZODB3. I need to match single
words in attributes in what might be a long string with several words in it.
I've tried to set "self.cat.addIndex('name' ,'TextIndex' )" which is
supposed to be full text searching at least said to be in the Zope-pages
when creating a catalog in Zope. But when I try to search for objects they
only return stuff if I enter the entire content of the attribute in
question, not parts of it. This is not a Zope-product yet, but a foundation
for a future product. I'm working on a full-text searching command-line
interface, so nothing of this can be done thru Zopes web-interface at this
point.

the code has been posted earlier, in "Now; - problems using ZODB/ZCatalog in
Python". Any quick hints?

Thomas

RE: [Zope-dev] PATCH: Expanded access file

2000-07-25 Thread Brian Lloyd

 Hm.  I don't think this could be classed as a "minor" 
 change, however,
 since it has impact on ownership, for example.  What's the 
 path of the user
 folder which is above "/", for example?  The whole thing is 
 useless if
 these extra users can't be owners, and the ownership 
 machinery right now
 wants an access path.  I think perhaps we should go the 
 fishbowl route on
 this, if only to make sure that Jim doesn't have a heart 
 attack when he
 gets back.  :)
 
 Looks like I was wrong.  This was in fact quite a minor 
 patch.  I've only
 tested this lightly so far, but if anyone else wants to try 
 it out, here it
 is.  

Hi all -

I think that this is _definitely_ the kind of thing that 
should be done in the fishbowl on dev.zope.org. Why? Because 
while it may be a "minor patch" in terms of lines of code, just 
applying the patch causes a number of problems that have nothing 
to do with software per se. They are the same problems that I get 
beaten about on a daily basis for everything that has ever been 
added to Zope to date :^)  They are the problems that dev.zope.org
is being designed to solve:

  o There is no visibility of the reason for the change. 

What is the problem being solved? How exactly does this solve 
it? Is it the right solution? Why did we make the decisions we
made? Of course some discussion of these has occurred on the dev 
list, but the only way I (or anyone else) can discover these is 
to piece things together by searching list archives. 

  o There is no visibility of the impacts of the change.

How does this affect ownership? Does this work with all existing
user folder objects, or do they all need to change to support it?
If they all need to change, shouldn't we make sure that the 
authors of other implementation generally buy into this? What 
other issues might there be? Again, we can only scour the 
list archives :(

  o This would become Yet Another Undocumented Feature.

One of the big things that the dev area is going to do is to force
us to assess the documentation impact of changes and ensure that 
the required documentation is produced and integrated with the 
appropriate offical or unofficial docs. I can see the expanded 
access file change potentially having an effect on at least two 
kinds of documentation (user/admin guides and developer materials
regarding how to implement new kinds of user folders). 


The structure of projects in the dev area is such that a finished 
project tells a story. What was the problem? What was the solution? 
How was it done? What documentation or other resources were created 
as a result? All of those things are available in one place once a 
project is complete.

Sorry about that.  As you may have seen from the list, I did enquire as to
whether this should go in the fishbowl, and was told that such a minor
patch probably didn't need it.  I thought the issue was more complex than
it was also; I was under the impression that Zope had a user folder *above*
the official "root", not realizing that it was merely that the "physical
root" had a default user folder in existence.


What is the problem being solved? How exactly does this solve 
it? Is it the right solution? Why did we make the decisions we
made? Of course some discussion of these has occurred on the dev 
list, but the only way I (or anyone else) can discover these is 
to piece things together by searching list archives. 

Problem being solved: the new ownership model requires a place for
ownership to "bottom out" so that user databases themselves can have
owners.  The previous solution was the creatable-by-super hack, which only
created further holes in the ownership model, since user databases which
involved components which followed the security model (e.g.
GenericUserFolder and LoginManager) then had to suppress ownership
characteristics or else be unusable as a root-level user database.

Second problem: the initial existence of only a single Zope user who could
not actually do anything except create a UserFolder, was troubling to new
users of Zope and at best inconvenient for experienced ones.



  o There is no visibility of the impacts of the change.

How does this affect ownership? Does this work with all existing
user folder objects, or do they all need to change to support it?

* The "rootUsers" can own things

* They appear to be normal members of the root UserFolder, except that they
do not appear in its contents as they are not stored there.

* It is not necessary for a user database to support the rootUsers; however
if the top-level user database of a Zope installation does not support
them, they will not be usable in that installation.

* User databases using the existing name==super.getUserName() protocol are
unaffected; they simply will not provide access to the new rootUser objects.

* User folder objects must be changed to support the rootUsers dictionary.
The patch provides this support for the Zope UserFolder object.

In practice, I believe that there is a relatively small (i.e. near-zero)
number of publically-available user databases currently in existence which
correctly support the Zope 2.2 security model, apart from those developed
by DC themselves.  Private developers of user databases need only implement
the support if they would like the additional feature, and for the rest, I
believe this patch should actually make it easier to implement 2.2 support
for most such user databases, since they won't need to implement the
creatable-by-super protocol or work through ownership issues.


  o This would become Yet Another Undocumented Feature.

One of the big things that the dev area is going to do is to force

appropriate offical or unofficial docs. I can see the expanded 
access file change potentially having an effect on at least two 
kinds of documentation (user/admin guides and developer materials
regarding how to implement new kinds of user folders). 

My assumption was that this feature would actually be easier for DC to
document than explaining to someone why they have to log in as superuser,
create a user folder, put a user in it, then log out by closing their
browser, and then log back in again as that other user in order to start
using their Zope installation.  My intent was to make both your and my life
easier, not more complex.  I apologize for any such side effect.  :(

[Zope-dev] Re: Probably ZopeFind Bug (was: Re: [Zope] all DTML Methods of current folder and subfolder)

2000-07-25 Thread Dieter Maurer

  Jerome Alet writes:
Thanks to you, the syntax you gave me is accepted by the dtml parser, but
both

and 

dtml-in "ZopeFind(this(), obj_metatypes=['Folder'],  
  obj_expr='not objectValues([\'Folder\'])',
  search_sub=1)"

have given me an empty list.
  I analysed this strange behavior in Zope 2.1.6
  and have a partial explanation.
  
Although the permission setting for "objectValues"
is "Access contents information" which by default
is granted to "Anonymous" and "Manager",
only "Manager" is allowed to access "objectValues"
in the context of the above "ZopeFind".
  
I could not yet determine, why this is the case.
  
But taken this fact for granted, the behavior
becomes clear: the access to "objectValues" results
in an "Unauthorized" exception. This
is catched but prevents any object from being
added to the result list.

By now, I know why we get this strange "objectValues__roles__"
result inside ZopeFind.

In "FindSupport:145", "ZopeFind" strips away the acquisition
context of an object.

base=obj
if hasattr(obj, 'aq_base'):
base=obj.aq_base

if not hasattr(base, 'objectItems'):
return result
try:items=base.objectItems()
except: return result

This, too, removes the information needed for "acl_user" based authorization:

  In the traversal of the aquisition chain to determine the
  roles associated with "objectValues", the application object
  on top of the acquisition hierarchy is not longer reached.
  Therefore, "ApplicationDefaultPermissions" is not used
  and "PermissionRole" falls back to its own default
  "('Manager',)".

This acquisition context stripping is almost surely responsible
for other problems reported for ZopeFind, too.


The behaviour would disappear, if the line

try:items=base.objectItems()
is replaced by
try:items=obj.objectItems()

Note: "ZopeFindAndApply" would need the same patch.

I am not sure, however, whether this will have adverse effects
at other places.


I will put a reference to this report into the Collector.

This is now in the Collector, as bug number 1457.

Incidentally, http://classic.zope.org:8080/Collector/1409/view is
another patch to the same problem. However, that patch doesn't address
the root of the problem, which is that DateTime instances are associated
with a particular timezone, and users expect all formatting to occur
with respect to that particular timezone. The fix in collector #1409
makes all strftime formatting happen in the local timezone of the Zope
installation, not the timezone given in the particular DateTime instance
being formatted.

 Here's a working patch to make formatting of a DateTime instance work as

 It could be made more efficient by compiling the two regex (regexes?
 regexen? regular expressions :-) ) into class attributes.

There's a problem with this optimisation -- see my other posting to

Hi Herbert,

I have no clues regarding sybase, sorry. I am using a MySQL database which
*can* run on the same or on a different host.

But have you checked if there is a new Sybase DA on zope.org ?
Furthermore, have you mailed this to the maintainer ? He/she might be
interested in that you want to connect to a remote host. Maybe you will get
what you want if you trigger the maintainter ... :-))

Can you switch to a different database ? If so, why not use MySQL or PostgreSQL
? Both are free to use (well MySQL costs a couple of bucks for commercial
purposes) and quite well supported.

This shows only the objects I want to show but the sequences is counted
wrong because even though it doesn't show the objects with BOOLEAN=false
they are still counted in the dtml-in.

How can I loop only the objects I want to loop?

[Zope] JobBoard update properties-script problem

2000-07-25 Thread brocken22

Hello,
I'm building a JobBoard like Database.Fellows can put in the jobs they
have done, the time they need(for scanning or programming) and the budget of
the project should be updated depending on the job and the time they needed.  
Building the instances was no problem but my problem is the budgetupdate.
This is the script;  Thanks!! -
without the if-statement it's working!!
dtml-call "REQUEST.set('job', job)"
dtml-call "REQUEST.set('time',time)"
dtml-call "REQUEST.set('user',_.str(REQUEST['AUTHENTICATED_USER']))"
dtml-call "REQUEST.set('title', user +' - '+ TS )"
dtml-call "REQUEST.set('value',REQUEST.form['value'])"


dtml- if "_.str(REQUEST['job']) == _.str('scanning')
   dtml-call "REQUEST.set('valueAfter',value - (20*time))"
else
   dtml-call "REQUEST.set('valueAfter',value - (10*time))"
/dtml- if
dtml-call "REQUEST.set('Budget',valueAfter)"
dtml-with "manage_addProduct['DBank']"

dtml-call "eingang_DB_add (_.None, _, NoRedir=1)"

 Is there a Product Builders meta-type registry somewhere?
 
 I can see things getting messed up in the near future as the number of

 I've already seen weird interactions with products
 PSQL Input Wizard and ZNolk when both are installed I only got
 PSQL Input Wizard despite picking ZNolk from the drop down...
 
 At least if developers can register their meta-types then common
 meta-types won't clash for different products (I can see stuff like
 'news item' and 'link' clashing all the time).
 
 Perhaps limit registration to developers who have published their product,
 I know this probably places an additional burden on the already heavily
 under seige developers, but I think some controls are going to be needed.


IMO, this should be done in each individual Zope server. IE, Zope
shouldn't let you have two meta_types called 'News Item'. In combination
with this, Products should list their meta types.

There is a list of product names on http://www.zope.org/Products. If
meta-types were to include the product name

RE: [Zope] PCGI still not functional

2000-07-25 Thread Jens Vagelpohl

bill,

i saw the same symptoms this weekend when i helped a good friend set up
a zope box to serve some of his domains from. his machine runs RH 6.1.
what did it for me was to copy Zope.cgi from apache's cgi-bin directory
back into the root of the affected zope install, he has two instances
running. after doing that the problems went away.

i double-checked the file to see if it points to the wrong places, but
everything in there seemed OK otherwise.

 OK, it isn't just me, I've gotten email from others having 
 this problem; unfortunately, I
 have had to tell them I still have it.
 
 I have tried using older pcgi code, I have tried the 
 PCGI_FDS_CLOSE=0 variable, and still,
 nothing seems to work right. The second method worked once, 
 but a reboot stopped that
 clean in it's tracks, and it doesn't work now. I've even 
 tried combining both of the
 above; no luck.
 
 In the 2.2betas, and in 2.1.6, I could use ZServer and PCGI, 
 but now, I get one or the
 other. Can someone at DC look into fixing this? We still get 
 unable to connect errors,
 _even_ if the pcgi.soc file is created.
 
 I am getting this on _every_ 2.2.0 final server I have. On 
 Linux and HPUX.
 
 Eagerly awaiting resolution ...

Re: [Zope] ZTopics breaks with 2.2?

2000-07-25 Thread Jonathan Cheyne

More than bothersome - I needed to upgrade to eliminate a zcatalog bug
and yet now the other half of my site doesnt work. Rock and a hard
place. I need to create a new fresh site then recreate all my zclasses
and then rekey all my instances? What will break next time?

Are there any alternatives to the ZTopic product? (that filter and nest
zcatalog entries)?

 You may try uninstalling the ZTopics, and reinstalling, but I doubt it will work.
 
 This is something I am noticing with all my 'upgrades'. There are loads, and loads, 
of

Try

J. Atwood

Well, if you "ARE" anal about numbers try

http://www.zope.org/Members/BwanaZulia/zope_benchmarks/benchmarks.html

which has a lot of information. Zope is certainly not going to compare 
to any static webserver in terms of speed so I would not be upset when 
you see that it does not. It does, however, come out much faster than 
other things like Apache Tomcat.

Problem:

I am using Zope 2.2 and jcNTUserFolder 0.0.7. I just installed a top
level NTUserFolder and now I cannot login as superuser (or any user
for that matter). First of all, how do I get back into my Zope
management pages and second, what is wrong with jcNTUserFOlder (or what
did I do wrong?)?

I am running Zope standalone. My root user is mapped to a valid
administrator of my local NT Domain.

Solution:

OK, so I got in by changing the ntuserfolder.py file in my installation:

   def authenticate(self, password, request):
""" try to authenticate the user
"""
# HACK
return 1
# /HACK
.

Error Message:

Zope Error

  Zope has encountered an error while publishing this resource.

  Error Type: SuperCannotOwn
  Error Value: Objects cannot be owned by the superuser

Answer:

You cannot add, copy or move objects as the superuser, but you can add 
users to a user folder and change permissions.  But there should be no 
permissions that need changing.  Make sure that you give the user the 
'Manager' role when you add a new user (while logged in as superuser).

Re: [Zope] user permissions

2000-07-25 Thread J. Michael Mc Kay

I just installed 2.2.  I read that the superuser account cannot edit or add
objects so I set up a user as manager and one as an owner.  The user
accounts are able to add objects but only the superuser account can see them
once they are added.

EX:
I am logged in as user Mike and add  edit a DTML Document.  I complete the
edit and choose change. When I'm returned to the contents the new document
is
not visible.  If I now log in as the superuser, everything is visible but,
of course, cannot be moved, added to, or copied and pasted.

So my question is "What have I not done correctly to have created this catch

RE: [Zope] user permissions

2000-07-25 Thread Webmaster

My installation is on RH Linux, however it sounds to me like you are having
the same problem.

I am no longer having the problem and the voodoo I doodood to get it working
seems like a bad dream now.

I created a simple user name "bob" and a one character password (I'm pretty
sure it was "1"). I then closed and reopened Netscape and logged in as "bob"
and it worked. I then created a second "manager" username and gave it a
regular password and it work like it should have the first time. 

Of course all this happened after trying every conceivable incarnation of
usernames and passwords (two and three character passwords did NOT work),
stomping around my office, slamming doors and cursing everyone on the list
that did not answer my postS ;-) 

Hope this helps!!

Re: [Zope] user permissions

Sounds stupido, but I logged on to zope today as the user and can see and do
all.  I really don't get it.  I tried over and over yesterday to get things
working to no avail.  Today, without having logged in previously I added
products.Zcommerce and Session.  Restarted Zope.
I just recieved your mail so I decided to go through all the motions again
from yesterday to tell you exactly what I was doing.  I log in and it is
working fine.

[Zope] Your feedback: what should DateTime strftime() behavior be?

2000-07-25 Thread Brian Lloyd

Hi all -

There has recently been some confusion over the expected 
behavior of various approaches to DateTime formatting in 
Zope regarding timezone representation. I would like to 
resolve this for the next release by making a proposal 
and asking you to reply to the list with a "vote":

  +1 == agree

  +/-0 == no strong opinion

  -1 == disagree

 
So then, here is the situation. In Zope 2.2 (and earlier), 
formatting a date using either:

  dtml-var theDate fmt="%A, %B %d %Y, %H:%M:%S"

  dtml-var "theDate.strftime('%A, %B %d %Y, %H:%M:%S')"

...would give you the date *formatted based on GMT rather than 
the timezone (usually local) representation of the object*. 
Simply doing:

  dtml-var theDate

...however, would print the date in the current timezone of 
the datetime object.

Many feel that this difference is unintuitive and a pain. The 
proposal is that both:

  dtml-var theDate fmt="%A, %B %d %Y, %H:%M:%S"

  dtml-var "theDate.strftime('%A, %B %d %Y, %H:%M:%S')"

...would be changed to apply the format to the current TZ 
representation of the object rather than convert to GMT. Of 
course, this could be a problem if there are people currently 
counting on the output being GMT, which is why we're putting it 
to a vote. If this change is made for 2.2.1, those who still 
wanted the output in GMT could just call the 'toZone()' method 
of the datetime object to get a GMT version before formatting:

  dtml-var "theDate.toZone('GMT').strftime('%A, %B %d %Y, %H:%M:%S')"


What do you think?

[Zope] ZTopics and 2.2 - solved.

2000-07-25 Thread Jonathan Cheyne


Just a follow up after much gnashing. I deleted the old catalog and
recreated. I also noticed that some ztopics displayed whilst others did
not (these are original ones not new). I tracked the difference to field
types in the catalog. the catalog is less tolerent of sloppy setups i
think - so i deleted an index and recreated as a different field type and
bingo - no probs.

Hope this makes sense.

Cheers

Jonathan

  Subject: [Zope] zzLocale 0-0-3a released on Zope Japan
  
  
   Hi Zopistas,
  
  
   This is the second alpha release of zzLocale, a Zope locale support
   Product.
  
   zzLocale provides a framework for Zope interface internationalization
   (Zope and Products management screens). The localization is done on a
   per request basis, which allows developers from different countries to
   work on the same Zope while each of them having an interface in his
   native language.
  
   With zzLocale, Product developers can easily provide localized
   interfaces for their Products. All that is needed is to put the
   localized interface DTML templates in a "locales/[lang]" subdirectory of
   the Product, and zzLocale does the rest.
  
   This version of zzLocale is pretty useable, and usually falls back
   nicely when something goes wrong. However, it is still alpha, and we
   would not recommend using it on a production server.
  
   This release includes a complete (I mean, as complete as current
   zzLocale features permit) French interface, and a partial Japanese one.
   Tranlators are welcome to provide other languages. Please send us your
   translated templates so that we can include them in the next release.
  
  
 For more information and download:

[Zope] frustrating security problem

2000-07-25 Thread joel grimes

I imagine this topic has been thoroughly gone over, but I didn't catch it so 
I'm pulling my hair out.

I'm using Zope 2.2 (upgraded yesterday) on a Win98 box.  I have a ZSQL 
Method that allows me to view data from an Access database.  But when I try 
to create a Search Interface for that ZSQL Method, I'm asked for a login and 
password before I can view it and NONE of my logins work.  The interface IS 
created and I can edit it, I just can't view it.

I only have 2 users.  The superuser and the one that created the ZSQL Method 
AND Search Interface.

What am I missing?

[Zope] ZClasses to RDBMS

2000-07-25 Thread Satheesh Babu

Hi,

Is there any recommended way to get data from ZClass instances to a
corresponding
RDBMS (Oracle 8i specifically) table?

What I could think of as options are: (I've'nt tried out any!)
1.  In manage_add for my Zclass call the corresponding ZSQL insert method
 - Can this be done?
 - What can be done for updates?
2.  Create masking DTML methods to create Zclass instances dynamically.
 Call ZSQL methods alongside as well.
3.  Do periodic downloads of ZClass instances - say XML format - and batch
 upload to database.

Why I need this?
1. I need to make a RDBMS driven system for managing content. I don't want
to use Zope's
ZODB for storing important content, because of these reasons:
1. It can quickly grow up to 2GB and much more
2. It needs to store and SEARCH through binary documents (Oracle can do
this easily)
3. The way site is to be build from DBMS contents has to be / can be
different - ASP, PHP or Java
 Even a 100% static site might be a requirement.
2. I've tried with ZODB3 with data upto 500MB and it is kind of shaky (was
on an NT4 server. don't
ask me, if it was my decision, I would've picked up linux!).
 H/W: Compaq dual PIII 500MHz server with NT4, SP5 (or 6, I don't
remember. The latest one).
 512MB RAM and 1GB Virtual memory.

 With RDBMS, we've DBA's and good SQL programmers, so data recovery is
much
 more easier. Also, I really don't need much of versioning or undo
capabilities.

It also brings up another solution, make an Oracle storage along the lines
of Interbase storage,
hook up ZCatalog to Oracle's interMedia search. Two problems - I'm little
tight on time, and
DCOracle's support for BLOBs are not yet tried out. I plan to start on this
soon anyway.
So, any suggestion for this would be greatly appreciated.

Note to DC:
I love Zope and I would say it is anyday better than these Java
appservers, to code, to maintain
and to train people. But, lack of any industry strength RDBMS storage is
really a big problem in
selling to suits.

[Zope] App isolation

2000-07-25 Thread Jacques Exelrud

Not sure if this list is the best place to put such question but here it
is...

I need to develop what would be a product if only Zope was the target.
As it´s not I was thinking what could I do to not need to build such app
twice:
I came to 2 options both involving building a server of some kind and
using Python to connect to this server.

1st
Build the app as a COM server (the target OS is Windows) and using
Python support build an interface to this COM server as a Zope product

2nd
Build the app as a XMLRPC server and using Python support build an
interface to this XMLRPC server

The second options is better because I´m not attached to any platform
but, as I said, that´s not an issue right now.

Any sugestions on any of those or a 3rd option ?

Thanks in advance,

Jacques

There are "sequence-index" and "sequence-number" variables

Note: use as "_['sequence-*']" inside "...".

  The error I get, running Zope in debug mode, is this:

[Zope] DCOracle on WinNT

Anyone has a hint how to compile the DCOracle on WinNT?

I was successful in compiling this on Linux.
Now I have to deploy this on Windows NT, I use Cygwin, but the compilation
process complains that there is no {$PYTHON_PATH}/lib/python1.5/config/Makefile.

On RedHat, I get this Makefile with python-devel package.
Where do I get it with Windows? It is not installed by default.

[Zope] Interbase 6.0 Open Source Release

2000-07-25 Thread Jeff K. Hoffman

Hello,

I just wanted to let everyone know that Interbase 6.0 has just been
released as Open Source. Check out:

  http://www.borland.com/interbase/index.html

If you need a high-quality, enterprise class RDBMS for Zope I suggest you
download both Interbase 6.0 and our Zope DA, gvibDA. It is a truly nice
setup.

Let us know if you find any bugs, or if there are some new features you'd
like to see added. We expect to make a 1.0 release of our DA next week,
once we've had a chance to test against 6.0 final.

Back to our regular programming,

--Jeff

Re: [Zope] Product Import

2000-07-25 Thread Chris Herrnberger

Nubie Question;

Why is it that some .zexp products will install seamlessly in the mangement
screen and others generate errors as file not found when the file clearly
exists in the import directory Is there a standard persmission set that must
be followed or is there something else that Im missing. The test system is
install in my home dir with permission set to -u username -g users This is not
the correct install procedure but is simply used for ease of installation and
learning purposes.

Any info would be appreciated.

[Zope] Using MySQL with ODBC causes re-authentification of Zope on WIN2000

2000-07-25 Thread Richard S Herrington


Here is a perplexing problem I am experiencing.  First, I was able to
compile the MySQL database adapter (MySQLdb) for WIN2000 and connect
successfully to a database I set up on Windows.  I set up a ZSQL method to
return rows from the database.  Then I set up a DTML method to iterate
over the rows and fill a html page using "dtml-in" to receive records from
the ZSQL method:

...snip...snip...
dtml-in sqlQuery
dtml-var last-name
dtml-var first-name
/dtml-in
...snip...snip

This worked fine.  Next, I was able to connect with a MicroSoft Access
database using an ODBC method.  Then I did the same as before.  Create a
ZSQL method (e.g. sqlQuery), then iterate over these rows with a "dtml-in"
tag, filling an html page.

Now here's my problem.  When I set up a MySQL ODBC connection.  The ZSQL
method by itself returns rows from the database just fine.  However when I
access the index_html page that contains the "dtml-in" tags.it causes
a prompt to reauthenticate to Zope (username and password).  No known
username and password will work.  I set all my MySQL permissions properly
as far as I know.

I've scoured the archvies but have found nothing.  I need some leads as to
what to try.  Thanks in advance.

 i double-checked the file to see if it points to the wrong places, but

[Zope] ZClasses to RDBMS

Satheesh Babu wrote:

 Is there any recommended way to get data from ZClass instances to a

 What I could think of as options are: (I've'nt tried out any!)
 1.  In manage_add for my Zclass call the corresponding ZSQL insert method
  - Can this be done?
  - What can be done for updates?
 2.  Create masking DTML methods to create Zclass instances dynamically.
  Call ZSQL methods alongside as well.
 3.  Do periodic downloads of ZClass instances - say XML format - and batch
  upload to database.

This sounds like a job for ZPatterns:

Yah I found the zwiki pages alright :) but couldn't find any trace of

I've been a bit out of touch so forgive me if this is documented

3. looks like you're gathering at least some of the wikis into

give a list/overview ? or an alias to wikicentral.

4. could we auto-login with cookies like eg slashdot ? I'm never
logged in when I need to edit a wiki and doing so is quite disruptive.
And, or, make the login page auto-redirect back to where I came from.

It's great to have someone visible and active working on this stuff -

(and not on zope-dev) who would have a stake in an issue and 
end up not seeing (or voting) on it.

Ideally I'll have a web-based voting thing on dev.zope.org 
so that only one pointer to it has to go to the list(s), but 
until then I propose that votes happen on zope-dev for the 
time being...

Is it possible to refer to ZSQL method from some other ZSQL method and
how???

each ZSQL is big and would be very expensive to put as a subquery of another
so can I do something like this:

say one is named ZSQL1: Select Mykey from Data where key  100
and the other is ZSQL2: Select * from ZSQL1 INNER JOIN MoreData ON
ZSQL1.Mykey = MoreData.key

Sorry that I wasn't very clear. My point is whether everyone has to mail

collate the votes and post the result to the list after a period of

But then, perhaps people like seeing how popular the proposal is, in

 There are "sequence-index" and "sequence-number" variables
 defined by "dtml-in". Thus, you need not count yourself.
 Note: use as "_['sequence-*']" inside "...".

I don't think this works for me though, because I don't want to count all of
the sequence items, just the ones that match a certain criterion. 
Specifically, I'm stepping through all of the files in a directory, but I'm
only displaying (and thus counting) the ones that are themselves directories. 
Is there a way to leverage the "sequence-" variables to help me here?

 
   The error I get, running Zope in debug mode, is this:
   
  Error Type: AttributeError
  Error Value: 'string' object has no attribute 'set'
 Is is possible that some of your folders has
 a REQUEST property or acquires it?

No, that's not the case.  Nice thought, though.

I've discovered (with Jonothan Farr's help) that the problem doesn't occur in
Zope 2.1.6, only in 2.2.0.  This leads me to think that a) it's a new bug in
2.2.0 I've uncovered or b) there's something different about the way Zope 2.2.0
handles the REQUEST object that I need to understand and account for.

I've discovered (quite by accident) that an attempt to add a Squishdot
installation (Squishdot-0-4-1) into Zope 2.2.0 generates the same error that my
code generates.  There's a note on the Squishdot page that indicates that they
know it doesn't yet work with 2.2.0, and that it will soon be resolved (by
Squishdot-0-4-4, they promise).  There's no indication, though, of whether the
Squishdot author(s) know what the problem is at this point.

I'm considering making a post to Zope-dev describing the problem and asking if
anyone knows whether this is a feature or a bug that I'm bumping into.

rob

(p.s.  I've just had a thought that I might be able to force the
dtml-in loop to sort the files by type, which would at least guarantee that
all of the directories would be consecutive.  I could also maybe construct a
new list of just the directories and then iterate over the new list.  Either of
these may allow me to use the "sequence-" values constructively.  I want to
learn what's going on here, though, and I'd rather not have to resort to
complicating my algorithms.  Counting stuff is a basic programming task, it
should be able to be accomplished in a straightforward manner.)

   Nothing.
   Check http://lists.zope.org/pipermail/zope/2000-July/029375.html

   Jacques

Following that link I found the text of RDB.py but there seems to be a lot 
of codes in it that I'd need to replace with something (=0A= and =3, etc.)- 
being new to python as well as zope, I don't know what to replace them with. 
  Here's an example:

% _def, names[i])=0A=
type=3Dlower(defre.group(2))=0A=
width=3Ddefre.group(1)=0A=
if width: width=3Datoi(width)=0A=
else: width=3D8=0A=


Don't look quite right to me.  I assume I can just strip =0A=, is =3D just a 
space?

Alternately, is there somwhere I can download the entire RDB.py?  A search 
of www.zope.org for RDB.py turned up nothing.

[Zope] Limiting folder space

2000-07-25 Thread Brendon Grunewald

I want to use Zope to offer registered visitors to my site a little free
webspace on the site. Since I use hosting service that restricts and charges
me for space, I would like to restrict the size that their zope folders can
consume.

Hence:
Is there any simple way of limiting the amount of space that a folder is
allowed to consume including its subfolders? Alternatively, is there anyway
of checking how much space a folder with subfolders consumes?

[Zope] zzLocale 0-0-3a released on Zope Japan

2000-07-25 Thread Johan Carlsson


Yves-Eric,
Brilliant product!
Are there any plans on expanding the framework to include
python embedded strings.
I know it's would be hard to identify all strings in Zope itself,
but providing a framework would encurage python product 
developers that care about i18n and give them a perferd method.

Best Regards,
Johan Carlsson

 
 
  Hi Zopistas,
  
  
  This is the second alpha release of zzLocale, a Zope locale support
  Product.
  
  zzLocale provides a framework for Zope interface internationalization
  (Zope and Products management screens). The localization is done on a
  per request basis, which allows developers from different countries to
  work on the same Zope while each of them having an interface in his
  native language.
  
  With zzLocale, Product developers can easily provide localized
  interfaces for their Products. All that is needed is to put the
  localized interface DTML templates in a "locales/[lang]" subdirectory of
  the Product, and zzLocale does the rest.
  
  This version of zzLocale is pretty useable, and usually falls back
  nicely when something goes wrong. However, it is still alpha, and we
  would not recommend using it on a production server.
  
  This release includes a complete (I mean, as complete as current
  zzLocale features permit) French interface, and a partial Japanese one.
  Tranlators are welcome to provide other languages. Please send us your
  translated templates so that we can include them in the next release.
  
  
For more information and download:

[Zope] namespace and PARENTS doubt

2000-07-25 Thread Fabio Akita

Hi again

That may be a simple doubt but that´s it:

dtml-with "_.namespace( parameter = 'folder1' )"
 dtml-with "_['PARENTS[1].' + _['parameter'] + '.folder']"
   'commands' 
 /dtml-with
/dtml-with

The above statement just doesn´t work. The 'parameter' is a DTML variable in
the global namespace.

But if I try:

dtml-with "PARENTS[1].folder1.folder"
/dtml-with

That will work. What I am trying to do is to execute the "
'commands'." above for lot´s of 'parameter' folders. But the
_['PARENTS[1].' + 'something'] trick doesn´t work. Is there another way to
make the first statement work?

(maybe I was a bit confusing here, I hope you understand the problem)

[Zope] Probably Zope Bug (was: Re: [Zope] all DTML Methods of current folder and subfolder)

2000-07-25 Thread Dieter Maurer

Jerome Alet writes:
  Thanks to you, the syntax you gave me is accepted by the dtml parser, but
  both
  
  dtml-in "ZopeFind(this(), obj_metatypes=['Folder'], 
obj_expr='''not objectValues(['Folder'])''', 
search_sub=1)"
  
  and 
  
  dtml-in "ZopeFind(this(), obj_metatypes=['Folder'],  
obj_expr='not objectValues([\'Folder\'])',
search_sub=1)"
  
  have given me an empty list.
I analysed this strange behavior in Zope 2.1.6
and have a partial explanation.

  Although the permission setting for "objectValues"
  is "Access contents information" which by default
  is granted to "Anonymous" and "Manager",
  only "Manager" is allowed to access "objectValues"
  in the context of the above "ZopeFind".

  I could not yet determine, why this is the case.

  But taken this fact for granted, the behavior
  becomes clear: the access to "objectValues" results
  in an "Unauthorized" exception. This
  is catched but prevents any object from being
  added to the result list.

Workaround:
  you need to add the REQUEST parameter to "ZopeFind".
  i.e.:
   dtml-in "ZopeFind(this(), obj_metatypes=['Folder'],  
 obj_expr='not objectValues([\'Folder\'])',
 search_sub=1, REQUEST=REQUEST)"
  
  This allows ZopeFind to use AUTHENTICATED_USER for
  validation of the "objectValue" access.

  The code will then work at least for the manager.

  Hopefully (not tested) a manager proxy role will
  make it work for arbitrary users, too.


I will investigate further, why "this().objectValues__roles__"
returns "('Manager',)" rather than "('Anonymous','Manager')".
However, this can take quite some time because I am
currently a bit stressed.

[Zope] SiteAccess

2000-07-25 Thread Danae and Andy

Hi,

I followed the directions on the SiteAccess product:

"Put a SiteRoot in '/hotsite', your site's physical
root, and accept the default Path."

When I do that I am no longer able to access that
folder in the mgmt interface.

Zope 2.2 and SiteAccess 2

Any ideas?



I have put the SiteAccessRule in the root that reads:

dtml-if "_.string.split(_.string.split(HTTP_HOST,
':')[0], '.')[-2:]==['mysite', 'com']" 
  dtml-call
"REQUEST['TraversalRequestNameStack'].append('myfolder')"
/dtml-if

[Zope] ANN: Border Aware Image Update for Zope 2.2.0

2000-07-25 Thread Jon Franz

The Border Aware Image add-on has been updated for Zope 
2.2.0 - installation has been heavily updated and is now 
much easier.

see:
http://www.zope.org/Members/Coventry/Border_aware_image

Also, the alternate syntax patch/add-on has been tested 
with Zope 2.2.0 now, and no changes were needed.  The 
new documentation reflects this at:

http://www.zope.org/Members/Coventry/dtml_shortcut


Also:
I will be submitting a proposal soon to dev.zope.org: the 
project would handle evaluating and integrating small 
add-ons such as these and others into the Zope core, 
please email me if you would be interested in participating.

Re: [Zope] Your feedback: what should DateTime strftime() behavior be?

You will only ever see votes from people wanting change... apathy rules
otherwise. Then when it changes you'll see a whole bunch of bitching about 
the change, and how there's 1,000 people on the list and only 20 people
voted... etc. d8) Mailling list votes are often a bad idea...

Yes there is, and that's what the development of zzLocale is now
centered on. We are still in an early design stage, so I cannot give you
much information or any expected release date, but the next version of
zzLocale will definitively include some python-embedded strings

[Zope] Re: Probably ZopeFind Bug (was: Re: [Zope] all DTML Methods of current folder and subfolder)

2000-07-25 Thread Dieter Maurer

Dieter Maurer writes:
  Jerome Alet writes:
Thanks to you, the syntax you gave me is accepted by the dtml parser, but
both

dtml-in "ZopeFind(this(), obj_metatypes=['Folder'], 
  obj_expr='''not objectValues(['Folder'])''', 
  search_sub=1)"

and 

dtml-in "ZopeFind(this(), obj_metatypes=['Folder'],  
  obj_expr='not objectValues([\'Folder\'])',
  search_sub=1)"

have given me an empty list.
  I analysed this strange behavior in Zope 2.1.6
  and have a partial explanation.
  
Although the permission setting for "objectValues"
is "Access contents information" which by default
is granted to "Anonymous" and "Manager",
only "Manager" is allowed to access "objectValues"
in the context of the above "ZopeFind".
  
I could not yet determine, why this is the case.
  
But taken this fact for granted, the behavior
becomes clear: the access to "objectValues" results
in an "Unauthorized" exception. This
is catched but prevents any object from being
added to the result list.

By now, I know why we get this strange "objectValues__roles__"
result inside ZopeFind.

In "FindSupport:145", "ZopeFind" strips away the acquisition
context of an object.

base=obj
if hasattr(obj, 'aq_base'):
base=obj.aq_base

if not hasattr(base, 'objectItems'):
return result
try:items=base.objectItems()
except: return result

This, too, removes the information needed for "acl_user" based authorization:

  In the traversal of the aquisition chain to determine the
  roles associated with "objectValues", the application object
  on top of the acquisition hierarchy is not longer reached.
  Therefore, "ApplicationDefaultPermissions" is not used
  and "PermissionRole" falls back to its own default
  "('Manager',)".

This acquisition context stripping is almost surely responsible
for other problems reported for ZopeFind, too.


The behaviour would disappear, if the line

try:items=base.objectItems()
is replaced by
try:items=obj.objectItems()

Note: "ZopeFindAndApply" would need the same patch.

I am not sure, however, whether this will have adverse effects
at other places.


I will put a reference to this report into the Collector.



Dieter
