I think this problem is actually easier to solve in the common case than requring that people run a conversion script. The ZGlobals data structure is a cache, and can be blown away and recreated indiscriminately. It's recreated whenever a Product is added or removed, and Zope already does this as a matter of course if anything about the data structure is goofy.
Hm, OK. Then the question is how to decide that it's goofy.
I'll note that I certainly did not intend it to be a cache when I added it a long time ago. I'm a bit uncomfortable assuming that it's always used that way, but you know more than I about the current usage.
I think the problem Sidnei has run into isn't so much that the BTree
module can't be imported, it's instead that the
Persistence.PersistentMapping module redefines PersistentMapping in
order to do something I don't quite understand, and the redefinition is
what appears to be causing the AttributeError, 'data' to appear.
Hm, I'll add a comment explaining what's going on.
it's not used, everything works fine. Here's the module:
import Persistence import persistent from persistent.mapping import PersistentMapping
if Persistence.Persistent is not persistent.Persistent:
class PersistentMapping(Persistence.Persistent, PersistentMapping):
"""Legacy persistent mapping class
This class mixes in ExtensionClass Base if it is present.
Unless you actually want ExtensionClass semantics, use
If you comment out the "if" clause and everything underneath of it, make a dummy BTree.py module with the following and put in in the software home:
from Globals import Persistent
class BTree(Persistent): pass
... and restart Zope with an "old" filestorage file, all is well:
There needs to be a cleaner solution than this. A Dummy BTree module is not acceptable.
I'm not sure what the redefinition is supposed to achieve?
persistent.Persistent is not an extension class. It's a pure new-style persistent base class.
Persistent.Persistent is an extension class if ExtensionClass is installed. If ExtensionClass is not installed, then a warning is issued and it is set tp persistent.Persistent. This is to ease the transition for people who use ZODB outside of Zope.
The check above is to cause an extension-class-based PersistentMapping is ExtensionClass is installed.
