11:13:25 <r0bby> bwolfe_: Mark Benscoter had mentioned the dev call -- how do i get in on it?
11:16:35 *** TorLye has left #openmrs
11:20:40 *** TorLye has joined #openmrs
11:45:56 <bwolfe_> r0bby: it was a few hours ago. we will be sending out an email officially inviting people soon
11:48:21 *** bwolfe_ is now known as bwolfe
11:50:16 <r0bby> ah pl
11:50:19 <r0bby> ah ok
11:54:47 * r0bby needs his morning joe
11:54:55 <bwolfe> but its not morning anymore...
11:55:04 <r0bby>
11:55:07 <OpenMRSBot> <$> (at
11:55:36 <r0bby> it turns out the bulk of my code is groovy/JS
11:55:55 <r0bby> w/ my servlet being in groovy which has introduced some interesting problems
11:56:02 *** atomicturtle has quit IRC
11:56:10 *** atomicturtle has joined #openmrs
11:56:10 <r0bby> one of which is where it blows up at runtime
11:56:33 <r0bby> when i try and send the template back in a plain AJAX call
11:56:49 <r0bby> it probably has to do w/ how i designed my code
11:58:13 <r0bby> and i solved my template problem i'm gonna make a map
11:58:42 <r0bby> Where the key is the variable name; the value is my property container (i explained the logic behind this, and it was for this specific reason)
11:58:51 *** sunbiz has joined #openmrs
12:05:23 * r0bby beats sunbiz up
12:05:29 <r0bby> gimme your lunch money
12:05:55 <r0bby> I wish i didn't have to deal w/ classpath like i do
12:06:50 <sunbiz> ;)
12:07:13 * sunbiz launches an A-Bomb on r0bby
12:08:16 <sunbiz> r0bby: but whats with the classpath ??
12:08:20 *** crazee has quit IRC
12:08:39 <sunbiz> r0bby: u can have that in ur lib-common and lib folders right ??
12:08:44 <r0bby> sunbiz: need to get at the OpenMRS domain model objects, as well as the service methods
12:08:58 <r0bby> sunbiz: yes -- but I still need it while it's actually loaded :)
12:09:15 <r0bby> ie the GroovyClassLoader *MUST* know everything on the classpath in the parent classloader
12:09:46 <r0bby> in other news i got jquery goodness :)
12:09:53 * r0bby drools
12:10:09 <sunbiz> mustn't b a prob... use a bean to access all the classes u need... and give Groovy that bean
12:10:43 <sunbiz> ok... r0bby may b its not the best idea to have all the classes through one bean... scrap that idea into the bean
12:10:46 <sunbiz> *bin
12:11:00 <r0bby> no it's not.
12:12:12 <r0bby> Okay i think i understand how classpath hierarchies work
12:12:45 <r0bby> in essence the GroovyClassLoader sees everything in th classloader for openmrs.
12:12:59 <r0bby> which is probably a blessing and a curse
12:14:52 <bwolfe> r0bby: yes, thats because the openmrsclassloader is the parent of the groovyclasslaoder
12:15:07 <bwolfe> and a classloader will allow its parent to load the class before it tries to do it itself
12:15:29 <bwolfe> EXCEPT for the moduleclassloaders...which should be between your groovyclassloader and the openmrsclassloader
12:15:58 <bwolfe> I made moduleclassloaders so that they will try themselves, then try other modules that are "required" by the module, THEN it tries the openmrsclassloader
12:16:01 <r0bby> bwolfe: I'm actually hitting a problem w/ that
12:16:15 <r0bby> how do i get around that?
12:16:29 <r0bby> directly use tomcat's?
12:17:12 <bwolfe> call setProbeParentLoaderLast(false) on the moduleclassloader that is between you and the openmrsclassloader
12:17:15 <r0bby> bwolfe: HEY! I'm just learning about this stuff as I go..this isn't bad :)
12:17:37 <r0bby> thanks
12:18:08 <r0bby> bwolfe: I still am gonna do all my work compiling and such in servlets :/
12:18:36 <r0bby> I wrote a nice method last night to get out the class name from a class def
12:18:47 <r0bby> s.substring(" ","{")
12:19:10 <r0bby> just force certain style on users :)
12:21:09 <r0bby> bwolfe: if i post to foo.form the controller handles it?
12:21:18 <bwolfe> yeah
12:21:24 <r0bby> rather than the servlet
12:21:27 <r0bby> okay thanks
12:21:35 <r0bby> just trying to figure this all out
12:22:07 <r0bby> do you think the map idea would work for retaining field values?
12:22:17 <r0bby> var name:container
12:22:50 <r0bby> This is the one problem that i'm facing (oddly enough! solve this and we have a basic system in place -- at least on the backend
12:23:11 <r0bby> I hope i pass the midterm
12:23:22 <r0bby> :(
12:23:52 <sunbiz> r0bby: I think I've reached my midterm stuff
12:24:11 <sunbiz> mayb some polishing... But I hope brian and justin think its good enough...
12:24:25 <sunbiz> and bwolfe should have any ugly-code problems...
12:24:30 <sunbiz> *shouldnt
12:24:38 <r0bby> I haven't :/
12:25:08 <r0bby> I still have some metaprogramming stuff to do (buzz words anyone?)
12:25:38 <r0bby> can't do bindings; and I haven't the slightest clue how to include code that -- OH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
12:26:05 * r0bby will define a base-class (this will all be done behind the scenes at the compilation step :)
12:26:29 *** bmckown has joined #openmrs
12:26:29 *** ChanServ sets mode: +o bmckown
12:26:40 <r0bby> class MyFormController extends GroovyFormController { ... }
12:27:19 <r0bby> I knew writing that silly method to get the class name would come in handy
12:29:01 <r0bby> now that's solved :D
12:29:04 <r0bby> woohoo!
12:29:09 <r0bby> now i'm gonna implement this!!!
12:32:03 *** sunbiz has quit IRC
12:34:53 <r0bby> ben aren't you glad im not your intern :)
12:35:46 <bwolfe> no, its too bad you're not my intern ;-)
12:35:57 <bwolfe> I'd have whipped you into shape already...burke is too nice. :-D
12:37:30 <r0bby> you woulda?
12:37:42 <r0bby> Burke is AWOL as far as my project is concerned :)
12:37:54 <r0bby> I learned a lot actually
12:37:58 <bwolfe> yeah, he's been out of touch for a few weeks for all of us
12:38:11 <r0bby> w/o him there it's forcing me to be independent
12:38:15 <bwolfe> he's on vacation this week...and attempting to /actually/ vacation without too much emailing :-p
12:38:16 <r0bby> this will help me a lot later on
12:38:22 <bwolfe> good :-)
12:38:42 <r0bby> I wonder if he's doing this on purpose
12:38:45 <r0bby> or what

13:59:04 <r0bby> how do I programmatically get at the ModuleClassLoader?
13:59:20 <r0bby> nvm,

13:59:44 <r0bby> api docs++
14:00:41 *** atomicturtle has quit IRC
14:04:19 <r0bby> uh ben
14:04:24 <r0bby> visibility issue
14:04:44 <r0bby> setProbeParentClassLoader is protected
14:05:24 <r0bby> bwolfe: ^
14:05:33 <bwolfe> hmm, I wonder why
14:05:50 <bwolfe> should probably make that public
14:05:58 <bwolfe> try it out in your code and see if that solves all your issues
14:06:05 <bwolfe> and then open a ticket with the patch if it does
14:06:12 <r0bby> mind me changing it and commiting it?
14:06:46 <r0bby> If you say no, i won't
14:08:14 <bwolfe> jacobb: what is the "proper" sql standard replacement to the mysql tinyint, do you know?
14:08:22 <bwolfe> r0bby: no, don't
14:08:25 <bwolfe> r0bby: ticket
14:08:39 <r0bby> w/ a patch?
14:09:19 <bwolfe> yeah, might as well...but its a pretty small patch. :-)
14:09:53 <r0bby> just out of curiousity
14:09:56 <r0bby> what will the behavior do?
14:10:41 <r0bby> will it allow the module to use the original tomcat classloader?
14:10:43 <bwolfe> r0bby: what behavior?
14:11:14 <bwolfe> r0bby: did you read the javadoc comment on setProbeParentLoaderLast ?
14:11:36 <r0bby> yeh
14:11:53 <r0bby> it's confusing..
14:12:08 <bwolfe> "whether or not to look at the parent classloader last"
14:12:18 <r0bby> what does that mean
14:12:19 <bwolfe> that means:
14:12:51 <bwolfe> if probeParentLoaderLast is true: look in moduleclassloader first for a class, then ask the parent classloader
14:13:18 <bwolfe> if probeParentLoaderLast is false: ask the parent classloader if it knows about the class first, if it doesn't know about a class, look in the moduleclassloader
14:13:29 <r0bby> Okay that will work
14:17:13 <r0bby> !ticket 894
14:17:13 <OpenMRSBot> r0bby: Ticket #894:
14:17:27 <r0bby> ^
14:20:00 <r0bby> this is needed for my current work
14:20:06 <r0bby> so it's critical to me
14:20:56 <r0bby> bwolfe: let me know when it's commited
14:23:46 <bwolfe> r0bby: trac will let you know. :-p
14:23:55 <bwolfe> r0bby: it migth be a while
14:24:00 <bwolfe> do it to your locale and keep working. :-)
14:24:10 <bwolfe> ("a while" == ~week)
14:25:06 <r0bby> meh
14:25:18 <r0bby> that would require me adding current svn jars
14:26:20 * r0bby sighs and does that
14:26:41 <r0bby> i think i need to shower
14:52:22 <r0bby> ahh yes I got what I want :)
14:53:16 <bwolfe> a shower?
14:53:20 <r0bby> No
14:53:27 <r0bby> the openmrs jars :)
14:54:58 <r0bby> I hate having to maintain an eclipse classpath file and IDEA
15:16:59 <jacobb> who's the admin of the openmrs mailing lists?
15:21:34 <bwolfe> jacobb: burke
15:23:46 <r0bby> jacobb: wanna bitch about me I swear i didn't mean ti kill that dog

15:36:56 <OpenMRSBot> Recent updates in the world of openmrs: OpenMRS Tickets: Ticket #894 (defect created): ModuleClassLoader.setProbeParentLoaderLast() should be public <>
16:20:52 *** sunbiz has joined #openmrs
16:21:04 <sunbiz> bmckown: u there ??
16:22:26 <bmckown> hi, sunbiz
16:22:36 <sunbiz> does any1 else face this problem in Find Patient... that when u enter the 5th charcter of patient identifier... the results aren't shown
16:22:48 <sunbiz> bmckown: that question ??
16:22:53 <bmckown> hmm.
16:23:04 <sunbiz> that is the reason the barcode search wasn't working
16:23:06 <bmckown> maybe that's the bug.
16:23:20 <bmckown> the find patient does seem to act a little funny.
16:23:39 <sunbiz> we were thinking it was the 'dash' charcter ??
16:23:43 <bmckown> yes
16:23:53 <bmckown> but remember the screenshot I sent you...
16:24:02 <bmckown> hmm. let me try it.
16:24:13 <sunbiz> bmckown: yes... I corrected that
16:24:44 <bmckown> is this a bug specific to your search page?
16:25:42 <sunbiz> bmckown: no... from the find/create patient as well
16:25:52 <bmckown> hmm.
16:25:55 <sunbiz> does it work fine on ur Find/Create Patient ??
16:26:01 <bmckown> lemme check
16:27:55 <bmckown> seems you could be right. I have a patient named test2. test2 always shows up with the other test patients if i search for "test" but not if i search for test2
16:28:23 <sunbiz> very wierd behavior on the getPatient method !!
16:28:35 <bmckown> hmm maybe u could file a bug report
16:28:39 <bmckown> a ticket i mena
16:28:42 <bmckown> mean
16:28:49 <sunbiz> yes
16:29:01 <bmckown> you know I totally trashed my rc.d links
16:29:25 <sunbiz> bmckown: why ??
16:29:43 <bmckown> rm /etc/rc*/*vpn* except that I accidentally put a space before vpn*
16:29:51 <bmckown> hehe
16:30:03 <sunbiz> heheh
16:30:05 *** sioraiocht has quit IRC
16:30:10 <bmckown> i'm in the process of fixing that.
16:30:22 <bmckown> *before* i shut down the computer
16:30:25 <sunbiz> dont u have a bring back feature.... or timemachine on Ubuntu??
16:30:41 <bmckown> maybe, if so i've never looked into that.
16:30:59 <sunbiz> it should be easily accesible
16:31:11 <sunbiz> Vista rocks with that feature... ;-)
16:31:18 <bmckown> ben did me the favor of ls /etc/rc* > helpbrianfixrcds.txt
16:31:38 <bmckown> i'll go for a mac first
16:32:04 <sunbiz> yea... has the bling of doing the same thing
16:32:15 <bmckown> yes. and mac is unix
16:32:31 <bmckown> and i like *nix machines
16:32:39 <sunbiz> I love the gfx on timemachine
16:33:04 <bmckown> i guess i haven't seen much of the gfx on vista
16:33:27 <bmckown> i have xp on the other partition

17:24:39 <r0bby> bug fixed :)
18:01:15 <nribeka_> message's code attribute support EL right?

19:59:38 <r0bby> bwolfe: i may not need the visibility change, but it would be useful
20:01:31 <r0bby> yup what do I do -- i don't need that visibility change?
20:01:54 <r0bby> it was that I didn't include the imports i ddi w/ my checkSyntax method
20:12:02 <r0bby> I rolled back the change i made locally; it was definately a case of pebkac
20:20:08 <bwolfe> well, good to hear you solved it
20:21:21 <bwolfe> but the change is still needed :-)
20:22:39 *** pombreda has joined #openmrs
20:22:39 *** ChanServ sets mode: +v pombreda
20:25:17 <r0bby> I also discovered a small bug
20:25:44 <r0bby> ideally you should be able to pass a Class object *OR* an Object into my getProperties closure -- so you can do both :)
20:26:01 <r0bby> I just check if it's an instanceof Class then i call newInstance()
20:26:10 <r0bby> and go on as usual :D
20:27:31 <r0bby> only problem is my callback isn't working right I make two AJAX calls one right after the other
20:27:41 <r0bby> in the end it's going to be ~5 i think
