I am fairly new to zope & python but I am working to migrate some data/objects from zope 2.6.1 to zope 2.7.0-b2 (and eventually 2.7.0 final.
What I am doing is this.
(1) get Dublin core metadata + some Dublin core extensions for the objects
(2) get pure text representation of object content - I can't use a simple import/export in zexp format because the classes in the receiving zope instance differ significantly from the classes in the sending zope instance.
I am able to collect all the data mentioned above and pass it across to the new 2.7.0-b2 zope instance but i am having trouble getting my objects to live where they need to live; specifically their path is not being accepted properly when i recreate the objects.
here's a code snippet for an external method i am working on
<preliminary stuff removed ...>
def addObjects(self, objectList):
from Products.CMFCore.PortalFolder import PortalFolder from OFS.Moniker import Moniker import urllib
nameList =  for myObject in objectList: metadata = myObject content = myObject dcMetadata = metadata['DC'] edcMetadata = metadata['EXTENDED_DC']
name = metadata['OBJECT_ID'] oType = metadata['TYPE'] portalType = metadata['PORTAL_TYPE'] metaType = metadata['META_TYPE'] DCType = dcMetadata['Type'] path = metadata['PATH'] root = metadata['ROOT']
selfPath = self.getPhysicalPath()
q = content['CONTENTS'] uq = urllib.unquote(q)
<other code to manipulate the object's content removed ...>
<clean up stuff removed ...>
the line "self.invokeFactory(portalType,'__'+name)" should be creating the new objects should be created in the context (self) that the external method is executing in - i checked what path 'self' has and it is correct (in this case /DF/testStuff).
but instead of being created where I'd expect the new objects are being created in /DF
I am sure this all come down to my own inexperience but I would really appreciate any advice that a more experiences python/zope person can give.
Cheers, altkey (aka Phil)
