Hi, My initial start with z3c.sampledata was enthusiastic but now I don't know where to go.
The simple scenario is to build sampledata with: A site A photo utility in etc A photo folder I register the utility:: <adapter name="tfws.gallery.utility" factory=".generator.testPhotoUtilityDataFactory" for="z3c.sampledata.interfaces.ISampleDataPlugin" provides=".generator.IPhotoUtilityDataSource" /> <SampleManager name="Sample photo utility" > <generator name="tfws.gallery.utility" dataSource="tfws.gallery.utility" contextFrom="z3c.sampledata.site" /> <datasource name="tfws.gallery.utility" adapterName="tfws.gallery.utility" adapterInterface=".generator.IPhotoUtilityDataSource" /> </SampleManager> This works just fine. I have a print statement in the utility generator:: print context.__name__ which prints the chosen name for the sample site. Now I try to add in the photofolder:: <utility name="tfws.gallery.photofolder" factory=".generator.SamplePhotoFolder" provides="z3c.sampledata.interfaces.ISampleDataPlugin" /> <adapter name="tfws.gallery.photofolder" factory=".generator.testPhotoFolderDataFactory" for="z3c.sampledata.interfaces.ISampleDataPlugin" provides=".generator.IPhotoFolderDataSource" /> <SampleManager name="Sample photofolder" > <generator name="tfws.gallery.photofolder" dependsOn="z3c.sampledata.site tfws.gallery.utility" contextFrom="z3c.sampledata.site" dataSource="tfws.gallery.photofolder" /> <datasource name="tfws.gallery.photofolder" adapterName="tfws.gallery.photofolder" adapterInterface=".generator.IPhotoFolderDataSource" /> </SampleManager> The dependsOn is maybe where I am going wrong though I have tried numerous approaches. What happens here is the generator form shows me the 3 samples I want to generate: site, utility and photofolder but on submit I get File "/opt/zope/sandbox/lib/python/tfws/gallery/utility/generator.py", line 89, in generate sm.registerUtility(util, self.interface) ForbiddenAttribute: ('registerUtility', <LocalSiteManager ++etc++site>) The print statement that I mentioned above shows context.__name__ as None so the utility is not installing to the generated site as I expected. I verify this by trying to generate the utility without sample site - ie with context as the zope app root, and I get the same error. I need a bit of advice here, because I want to go forward and generate a large set of sampledata with a site, half a dozen local utilities and numerous content components. But as you see I can't get a single component in place with a dependency on a single utility. Some of my components depend on more than one utility. Help and advice is definitely required.
