[Zope-dev] ZPatterns bug: no help subdirectory in PlugIns

2000-10-19 Thread Steve Alexander

PlugIns-0-4-3b1 (part of the latest ZPatterns release).

__init__.py fails because at line 8 context.registerHelp() fails, as
there is no "help" subdirectory in the PlugIns product folder.

I guess this is an empty directory that got missed off when the whole
thing was tarred up.

A simple fix is "mkdir help" from the PlugIns directory.

Re: [Zope-dev] Reversing symlink namespaces ???

2000-10-19 Thread Shane Hathaway

Phil Harris wrote:
 
 Shane/All,
 
 Anybody using the symlink product?
 
 It seems to me it uses namespaces in the wrong order.  Imagine the hierarchy
 below:
 
 Root
 Folder1
 doc1
 Folder2
 symlink1
 
 Now let's assume that Folder1 has a property 'copyright', and also that
 Folder2 has a property of the same name.
 
 At the moment the 'copyright' from Folder1 is used in preference to the
 'copyright' from Folder2 when viewing the symlink.  Does this seem right?
 
 Anybody got any views, suggestions etc.

This occurs because currently, symlink allows the object to retain its
acquisition context for security.  If you change the line below...

v = ob.__of__(parent)

to this...

v = getattr(ob, 'aq_base', ob).__of__(parent)

...then you'll get the effect you're looking for, but if you allow
others to add or modify symlinks, you just might have a security
problem.

[Zope-dev] WriteLocking Project Initialized

2000-10-19 Thread Jeffrey P Shell

http://dev.zope.org/Wikis/DevSite/Projects/WriteLocking/FrontPage

WriteLocking became a full fledged Fishbowl Project this week, and I've been
spending the past couple of days getting the initial Artifacts and structure
of the Project site together.  The current structure should stand through
elaboration.  There is no planned schedule yet as the Risks themselves are
still being scoped out and the UseCases haven't even been started on yet,
but it is currently planned to get the proposed functionality into Zope 2.3.

The main pages of interest right now are:

VisionStatement (what the project is about, from the original proposal)
 http://dev.zope.org/Wikis/DevSite/Projects/WriteLocking/VisionStatement

RecentChanges
 http://dev.zope.org/Wikis/DevSite/Projects/WriteLocking/RecentChanges

CurrentStatus (I really will work on keeping this up to date)
 http://dev.zope.org/Wikis/DevSite/Projects/WriteLocking/CurrentStatus

There are other pages outlining

 o RiskFactors (this is the one most actively being worked on right now),
 o TargetClients (LOCKing WebDAV clients we're planning to test against),
 o ProjectGlossary (Terms and definitions)

And the general ProjectDiscussion page at
 http://dev.zope.org/Wikis/DevSite/Projects/WriteLocking/ProjectDiscussion

I ask that if you make comments on the proposal to either do them on the
ProjectDiscussion page or on the [EMAIL PROTECTED] list.  Please read the
Scope section of the VisionStatement first, which outlines both what the
intended goals Are and Are Not.

Remember that the project is still in the early stages of Elaboration, and
some of the artifacts are incomplete.  In light of this election season, I
pledge to you I will try my hardest to go to work 50+ miles south of
Washington and fight to keep the information flowing through the Wiki
updated and available to ALL Zope people, everywhere.  No fuzzy math in
these parts!

[Zope-dev] Lists of Objects

2000-10-19 Thread Jack Fitzgerald



Hello,
I am currently keeping a list of objects 
sorted in a particular object. I am wondering if 
anyone has an opinion about whether I should keep 
just the 'id' in this list or if it is ok
to actually keep a reference to the object in the 
list. When I use the list at a later point in time
I will need to access several attributes of the 
object. If I keep the 'id' I would have to find the object 
for each entry in the list. Thanks in advance for 
any opinions.

depending on your application you could just do it the way zcatalog does
it and store the url and resolve the url to an object when you want to
access attributes.

I'm running zope 2.1.6 on Linux with DCoracle on "production",

I tried this, and the tinytables just discarded the column.

As a temporary fix, I've just created a ZClass to hold the

My zclass has a string attribute called p_tinytable which
holds the name of the tinytable to be changed.

However, if I call the function as follows:

dtml-with MyZClass
  dtml-call "p_tinytable.manage_editData(newData)"

I get:

[Zope] ZDiscussions for Zope 2.2.2

2000-10-19 Thread Cary O'Brien


Sorry about being such a winer yesterday.  

I needed a confera bulletin board for work (internal) with
attachments, so I hacked ZDiscussions to work with Zope2.2.2.

I needed to:

1) Get FileObject.py from Confera
2) add __allow_access_to_unprotected_subobjects__  in
   a few places.
3) Fix a check for "Cancel"
4) fix the size of __ac_permissions__

I uploaded it to www.zope.org (never done that before, it is
pretty nice!).  I left the RCS files in place in case anyone
wants to critique my um-er work.

Re: [Zope] Bypass ZODB and use File System

2000-10-19 Thread Michael Bernstein

Noah wrote:

 What we really want to do is to provide a second view to
 /var/www/htdocs for Apache. I understand that Apache won't
 serve up our dynamic content, but that's not important.
 Zope is just viewed as a better solution for managing our
 static documents. The problem we have in my organization is
 that there is a lot of resistance to my prototype Zope
 document management system due to the fact that everything is
 stored in ZODB. We think this risky -- possibly a data prison.

The way my organization does it, is to manage the content
within Zope, and to regularly run 'wget' on the server to
replicate it all to static files, which are then served by
Apache on another server. Doing that, plus regular backups
of the Data.fs file (you're already making regular backups
of your Apache based system, right?), and you should be
guarded against any but the most catastrophicly unlikely
disaster scenarios (you do have a disaster recovery plan,
right?).

wget is really a very easy way to get documents back out of
Zope, and if your system is designed to do this as a matter
of course (perhaps by using 'cron'), it should silence those
particular criticisms.

 Also people don't want to change from their current habits of
 editing files via NFS or Samba mounted directories. My original
 plan was to allow them some sort of syncronization process,
 but now I think that would be crazy.

Hmm. I guess it depends on what percentage of your users
want to keep doing this. You can certainly combine LocalFS
with the approach that I outlined above. I would make it a
special case. Keep the CMS server separate from the Apache
server, and only allow the mounted directories on the CMS
server. I've found that people appreciate being able to
manage their content from anywhere through a browser, and
they tend to gravitate toward that as a matter of course,
once it's there, if they're not forced to do it.

In short, give people options, and see which ones they
actually use.

HTH,

Michael Bernstein.

Keep in mind that the Zope Book is being compiled as a draft of a document

"there yet", in terms of inclusion as a standard part of the Zope download
package. Python Methods are available, but as an add-on. Perl methods too,
but they are even newer, as in less mature / stable / all those positive
adjectives.

So if you really want to try Python Methods, look here:

 Sorry Jon, i've lead you down a slippery slope...
 
 unlike ttw dtml-methods and the rest of zope which relies on the
 security context soley, for a filesys python method to be exposed
 through the web via xml-rpc it must have a doc string as well as have
 proper credentials.
 
 looking through propertysheets there is no 'proper' way to do this...
 but i lead you down the path, so here is a way back out... 
 
 there are a couple of options.
 
 the easiest is to have dtml_method for this zclass that functions as a
 helper method, 
 like
 
 dtml method -- external_helper
 
 dtml-var "propertysheets.propertyMap()"
 
 and in the client
 
 x = root.subfolder.zclass.external_helper()
 meta_info=eval(x)
 print meta_info
 ({'id': 'vvv', 'type': 'int', 'meta': {}, 'mode': 'w'}, {'id': 'aaa',
 'type': 'lines', 'meta': {}, 'mode': 'w'}, {'id': '', 'type':
 'tokens', 'meta': {}, 'mode': 'w'}, {'id': '122', 'type': 'date',
 'meta': {}, 'mode': 'w'}, {'id': 'ff', 'type': 'float', 'meta': {},
 'mode': 'w'}, {'id': '', 'type': 'text', 'meta': {}, 'mode': 'w'})
 
 or if external_helper returned propertyItems()
 
 [('vvv', 1), ('aaa', ['']), ('', ['ss', 'aa1113', '3', '4']),
 ('122', DateTime('1900/01/01')), ('ff', 455.0), ('', '')]
 
 
 if you're working with DateTime values in your propertysheets this will
 be trickier as you'll need to either retrieve the property you want
 independently or import Zope's DateTime module. also remember to set the
 security on the helper method so its not helping somebody hack your
 site.

[Zope] pcgi authentication

2000-10-19 Thread meden

We've got Zope running behind IIS as a pcgi process.  Currently we 
are using the jcntuserfolder product to do authentication, but we are 
having some trouble.  The problem is that we want to allow anonymous 
connections to our site.  So we have the permissions to the zope.pcgi 
resource set to "allow anonymous" and "challenge response" through 
IIS.  When we try to access the root level "manage" screen in Zope we 
are getting the manage_menu page in the left frame, but we are 
getting the index_html document in the right frame instead of the 
mnage_workspace page.

[Zope] dtml-if problem

2000-10-19 Thread Terry Babbey

The following will not evaluate true and I am stumped again.

dtml-if "Area == 'BIS'"

Area is a variable I am passing to my method and I want to check to
see if the variable is set to BIS, but it never returns true even
though a dtml-var Area displays BIS.

Confused as always,
Terry

RE: [Zope] dtml-if problem

2000-10-19 Thread Eric Walstad

Hi Terry - Disclaimer: I'm a Zope Newbie...
Here's what I'd try:

Length of the value of Area is: dtml-var
expr="_.len(Area)"br
Length of the 'strip'ped value of Area is: dtml-var
expr="_.len(_.string.strip(Area))"br

If you see somethinkg like:
Length of the value of Area is: 4 (or more)
Length of the 'strip'ped value of Area is: 3
when you view the DTML method, you have either white
space in your Area variable or a linefeed charater,
or...

If that's the case, here's a working if statement:
dtml-if "_.string.strip(Area)=='BIS'"

You could also try:
dtml-if "_.string.find(Area, 'BIS')0"
which will search for an instance of 'BIS' in the
value of the Area variable

Hope it helps,

Eric.

Re: [Zope] Bypass ZODB and use File System

2000-10-19 Thread Jonothan Farr

As long as you're only storing text, whether it be html or dtml or what, then
LocalFS might be a good solution for you. You still get through-the-web content
management, and lots of neat Zope-isms like acquisition. What you can't do is
attach persistent properties to the files you store locally, not even as much as
a 'title' property. If you need that ability then LocalFS is not the way to go.
I don't see how Michael's wget solution will help you there either, though.

  What we really want to do is to provide a second view to
  /var/www/htdocs for Apache. I understand that Apache won't
  serve up our dynamic content, but that's not important.
  Zope is just viewed as a better solution for managing our
  static documents. The problem we have in my organization is
  that there is a lot of resistance to my prototype Zope
  document management system due to the fact that everything is
  stored in ZODB. We think this risky -- possibly a data prison.

 The way my organization does it, is to manage the content
 within Zope, and to regularly run 'wget' on the server to
 replicate it all to static files, which are then served by
 Apache on another server. Doing that, plus regular backups
 of the Data.fs file (you're already making regular backups
 of your Apache based system, right?), and you should be
 guarded against any but the most catastrophicly unlikely
 disaster scenarios (you do have a disaster recovery plan,
 right?).

 wget is really a very easy way to get documents back out of
 Zope, and if your system is designed to do this as a matter
 of course (perhaps by using 'cron'), it should silence those
 particular criticisms.

  Also people don't want to change from their current habits of
  editing files via NFS or Samba mounted directories. My original
  plan was to allow them some sort of syncronization process,
  but now I think that would be crazy.

 Hmm. I guess it depends on what percentage of your users
 want to keep doing this. You can certainly combine LocalFS
 with the approach that I outlined above. I would make it a
 special case. Keep the CMS server separate from the Apache
 server, and only allow the mounted directories on the CMS
 server. I've found that people appreciate being able to
 manage their content from anywhere through a browser, and
 they tend to gravitate toward that as a matter of course,
 once it's there, if they're not forced to do it.

 In short, give people options, and see which ones they
 actually use.

 HTH,

 Michael Bernstein.

Here's your problem.  You're setting table to be a string containing the name 
of your tiny table.

dtml-call "REQUEST.set('table', thenameofmytinytable)"

Why don't you try

dtml-call "_.getitem('thenameofmytinytable').manage_editDate(tableDate)"

instead?

 dtml-call "REQUEST.set('tableData',_.chr(34)+'Mydata'+_.chr(34)

 dtml-call "table.manage_editData(tableData)"

 Error Type: AttributeError

This error is the giveaway.  table is a "string", not a "tiny table".

I was following the howto at

[Zope] How do I format date/time in dtml from a ISO-8601 SQL timestampfield?field?

2000-10-19 Thread J Kinsley

I am probably missing something simple here, however I can not get
this to work properly

Given mtime = -MM-DD HH:MM:SS-ZZ as returned from PostgreSQL, how
do I get the following to work without errors?  

dtml-in "sqlquery(...)"
 
 dtml-var mtime fmt="%a %d %b %Y %H:%M:S %Z"
 
/dtml-in query

This returns:
Errot Type:  ValueError
Error Value: unsupported format character 'a' (0x61)


If i drop the %a from the fmt string as follows:

dtml-in "sqlquery(...)"
 
 dtml-var mtime fmt="%d %b %Y %H:%M:S %Z"
 
/dtml-in query

I get the following Zope Error:
Error Type:  Type Error
Error Value: illegal argument type for built-in operation

Mtime was initially declared as a string in the ZSQL Method arguments
list, and changing it to date had no effect.  I have searched the
documentation and all examples I have found that use strftime
formatting indicate that this should work.  I have successfully been
able to change the format using the to_char(mtime) PostgreSQL
function, but then order by mtime does not work properly and besides,
I would like to make the format style customizable from within Zope
instead of on the SQL server.


Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Regards,
Jarrod Kinsley
