00:00:07 <nribeka_> for the patient, personname, personaddress class
00:00:25 <sgrannis> ok - i have the confif file open on link.rg
00:00:46 <sgrannis> fire away
00:00:55 <nribeka_> the row name will take form: patientmatching.<fully-qualified-class-name>.<property-of-the-class>
00:01:19 <sgrannis> ok
00:01:36 <nribeka_> while for PersonAttribute and PatientIdentifier --> it will take the human readable form
00:01:38 <sgrannis> we'll have to map that to the actual field in the DB
00:01:47 <sgrannis> ?
00:01:51 <nribeka_> like "Health Centre"
00:02:12 <nribeka_> so we might need to treat this two type differently if we want to map it to the database
00:02:15 <sgrannis> are PersonAttribute and PatientIdentifier not in any object
00:02:16 <sgrannis> ?
00:02:49 <nribeka_> they are an object
00:03:07 <nribeka_> but unlike the other
00:03:08 <sgrannis> why are PersonAttribute and PatientIdentifier referenced differntly?
00:03:13 <nribeka_> for example:
00:03:17 <sgrannis> :)
00:03:37 <nribeka_> PersonName have property firstName and value "Shaun"
00:03:44 <nribeka_> but for PersonAttribute:
00:04:02 <nribeka_> they have property "name" with value "firstName"
00:04:17 <nribeka_> and another property "value" with value "Shaun"
00:04:34 <nribeka_> i hope i explain it well enough :P
00:04:59 <sgrannis> one sec
00:05:03 <nribeka_> so, we may need to treat this two type attribute differently
00:05:10 <nribeka_> that's my issue :D
00:05:13 <nribeka_> ok ok
00:05:53 <sgrannis> The PersonAttribute use an EAV model, right?
00:06:03 <nribeka_> yep
00:06:12 <sgrannis> e.g. attribute name 'firstName'
00:06:23 <sgrannis> attribute value = 'Shaun'
00:06:27 <nribeka_> yep
00:06:48 <nribeka_> but the personname, personaddress, patient ... not using eav
00:07:22 <sgrannis> why wouldn't we refernce by PersonAttribute.AttributeName, which woudl return the PersonAttribute.AttributeValue
00:07:28 *** njero has quit IRC
00:08:24 <sgrannis> e.g., getAttributeValue(AttributeName firstName) returns 'Shaun'
00:09:09 <sgrannis> acutally should be: getAttributeValue(AttributeName firstName, patientID) returns 'Shaun'
00:10:12 <nribeka_> hmm ... that's works
00:10:30 <sgrannis> Again, I'm a little loopy (tired) but seems like we should be able to reference as something like PersonAttribute.attributeName, no? Is that a bad idea? Feel free to ouch basck
00:10:40 <sgrannis> ouch basck = 'puch back'
00:10:44 <sgrannis> ouch basck = 'push back'
00:12:13 <nribeka_> mapping it to the database will be a bit complicated, right?
00:12:19 <nribeka_> when we retrieve the data?
00:12:32 <nribeka_> no? what do you think sgrannis?
00:12:43 <sgrannis> right, mapping (I think) will be the hard part
00:12:57 <nribeka_> if you're too tired, we can discuss it through mail :)
00:13:28 <sgrannis> I'm OK for now.
00:13:31 <nribeka_> introspecting is fairly straightforward :)
00:13:32 <sgrannis> so if we said "(Attribute) SSN"
00:13:49 <sgrannis> we know that we need the "value" for the attribute "named" SSN
00:14:02 <sgrannis> so equivalencing:
00:14:27 <sgrannis> "(Attribute) SSN" == "Attribute.SSN"
00:14:53 <sgrannis> how do you do introspection? In hibernate? in Spring? In POJO?
00:15:01 <nribeka_> in pojo
00:15:44 <sgrannis> ic
00:17:43 <nribeka_> Attribute.SSN --> get value column of the row with attribute-name=SSN
00:18:02 <nribeka_> btw, the attribute name is not in the PersonAttribute (i think)
00:18:12 <nribeka_> it's in PersonAttributeType
00:18:34 <sgrannis> Attribute.SSN or "(Attribute) SSN" -> SELECT * FROM PatientAttribute where attribute_name='SSN' and patientID=XX
00:18:34 <nribeka_> so SSN is not in PersonAttribute but in PersonAttributeType hehe ... :)
00:18:47 <sgrannis> ah yes yes
00:19:21 <sgrannis> i need to look at those tables ...
00:19:39 <nribeka_> you can do that tonight or tomorrow sgrannis :)
00:20:37 <sgrannis> ok - just looked at it
00:21:16 <nribeka_> select * from person_attribute_type will list all available attribute-name
00:21:23 <sgrannis> SSN will have a person_attribute_type_id om the person_attribute type table
00:21:31 <nribeka_> yep ...
00:22:16 <sgrannis> so select * from patient_attribute_type where name='SSN' will return the attribute_type_id
00:22:21 <sgrannis> then ..
00:22:41 <nribeka_> need to select it to the person_attribute to get the value ...
00:22:47 <nribeka_> or join both table
00:22:57 <nribeka_> :)
00:23:35 <nribeka_> so in PersonName -> select * from person_name
00:23:37 <sgrannis> select attribute from person_attribute where person_attribute_type_id=<result from first query> <--- yes we do a join
00:23:48 <sgrannis> got it now
00:23:48 <nribeka_> for custom attribute --> we do join :)
00:23:54 <sgrannis> yep
00:24:01 <nribeka_> two different thing right :d
00:24:02 <nribeka_> :D
00:24:04 <sgrannis> or as we say in the midwest
00:24:12 <sgrannis> "yepper doo"
00:24:19 <nribeka_> haha ... lol ...
00:25:13 <nribeka_> so we need to have the knowledge of which one we need to join and which one we don't need join :)
00:25:39 <nribeka_> or we can hardcode it :)
00:25:44 <sgrannis> A couple questions:
00:26:08 <nribeka_> yes
00:26:10 <sgrannis> 1) can you clairfy what the "two different thing right" are
00:26:16 <sgrannis> and 2) ....
00:26:39 <sgrannis> what is a "custom attribute" versus any other type of attribute?
00:27:02 <nribeka_> two different thing: one need join and one don't need join :)
00:27:31 <nribeka_> custom attribute: credit card, cvc
00:28:15 <nribeka_> other type, i mean identifier of a patient -> driving license, ssn, student id etc
00:29:05 <nribeka_> custom att goes to PersonAttribute
00:29:21 <nribeka_> patient identifiers goes to PatientIdentifier
00:32:25 <nribeka_> is it clear enough sgrannis :P
00:32:36 <nribeka_> i don't think so right ... :(
00:33:02 <sgrannis> yes
00:33:07 <sgrannis> here's my take on it:
00:33:14 <sgrannis> attributes are always custom
00:33:31 <sgrannis> attribute are identifiers/traits that aren't hard coded into the data model
00:33:43 <r0bby> zzzz
00:33:46 <r0bby> nini
00:33:49 <sgrannis> they are place in the person attribute table
00:33:55 <r0bby> (goodnight)(
00:33:58 <sgrannis> is that accurate from your perspective
00:34:06 <nribeka_> nite r0bby
00:34:07 <sgrannis> g'night r0bbert
00:34:19 <sgrannis> ;)
00:34:41 <nribeka_> sleep is for weak r0bby ;)
00:34:43 <nribeka_> lol
00:34:48 <sgrannis> :)
00:34:58 <nribeka_> that's what r0bby always said sgrannis :P
00:35:06 <sgrannis> :)
00:35:08 <nribeka_> back to attribute
00:35:14 *** njero has joined #openmrs
00:35:14 *** ChanServ sets mode: +v njero
00:36:01 <nribeka_> it's accurate enough ...
00:36:30 <sgrannis> anything that is an "attribute" is described in the person_attribute and person_attribute_type tables
00:36:50 <sgrannis> (my definition of attribute) ^^^^^^^^^
00:37:31 <nribeka_> so we don't take anything from patient_identifier?
00:37:40 <sgrannis> not sure what you mean?
00:37:44 <sgrannis> "take" ?
00:38:17 <nribeka_> because attribute and identifier are two separate thing (from what i understand :D)
00:38:32 *** njero has quit IRC
00:38:34 <nribeka_> so there are person_attribute and patient_identifier
00:38:41 <sgrannis> i *think* identifiers are codes
00:38:58 <sgrannis> e.g., SSN may *actually* belong in a patient identifier
00:39:09 <nribeka_> ah ic ic what you mean sgrannis :)
00:39:15 <sgrannis> medical record number may belong in patient identifier
00:39:15 <nribeka_> sorry took me a while to get it :D
00:39:27 <sgrannis> well, I'm not sure I fully "get it" yet :)
00:39:43 <sgrannis> but burke and i had a talk on attributes and identifiers a ways back
00:40:27 <nribeka_> hehe ... for now i consider myself "get it" :)
00:40:44 <sgrannis> but in OpenMRS "mother's maiden name" is an attribute, not an identifier
00:40:59 <nribeka_> yep
00:41:14 <sgrannis> alright ... anything else we need to chat about?
00:41:36 <nribeka_> i think that's about it for now sgrannis :)
00:41:47 <nribeka_> it's time for u to "gnite" :)
00:41:53 <sgrannis> good talking with you. have a g'nite
00:41:57 <sgrannis> :)
00:41:59 <nribeka_> ok ok sgrannis
00:42:10 <nribeka_> will discuss about it again tomorrow i think :D
00:42:17 <sgrannis> okee dokee
00:42:22 <sgrannis> cya
00:42:29 <nribeka_> gnite sgrannis

07:48:02 <bwolfe> nribeka: how is your csv data set up ?
07:48:54 <nribeka> haven't got the chance to write it last night bwolfe :P
07:49:13 <nribeka> planning to today or later on today
07:49:29 <nribeka> sgrannis also suggest to try post it on the dev list ...
07:49:29 <bwolfe> thats not what I meant
07:49:37 <bwolfe> what form is your csv data in right now ?
07:49:39 <nribeka> ah sorry ...
07:50:06 <nribeka> one row per record
07:50:26 <nribeka> uid, first name, last name etc ... separated by |
07:50:27 <bwolfe> what are the columns ?
07:52:48 <nribeka> uid, sex, last, mid, first name, address, city, state, zip, country, email, phone, mother maiden name, dob, cc type, cc num, cvc, ssn
07:53:06 <nribeka> i think that's all the columns in the data
07:53:39 <bwolfe> I see
07:54:15 <nribeka> do you happen to know any useful tool bwolfe ;)
07:55:03 <bwolfe> well I was thinking I wrote a python script to convert some csv data into sql insert statements
07:55:06 <bwolfe> I just need to find it
07:56:41 <nribeka> ah ic. hope you can find it :)

08:53:23 <sunbiz> How do I display a field from an Object returned by formBackingObject??
08:53:43 <sunbiz> I think I was making it work earlier.. but now it isnt working
08:54:15 <sunbiz> bwolfe: ??
08:55:15 <bwolfe> you are returning a map from formBackingObject, right? what is the key of the object in there ?
08:55:43 <sunbiz> nope... Im returning an Object of the Patient type
08:56:53 <bwolfe> oh, right, formBackingObject, sorry
08:57:04 <bwolfe> whats the commandName you've set for that page ?
08:57:17 <bwolfe> you set that in your applicationContext
08:57:42 <sunbiz> patient
08:58:43 <bwolfe> so in your jsp you can do ${patient.personName.givenName}
08:59:07 <bwolfe> just remove the "get" and lowercase the first letter on any of the methods on the object
08:59:08 <sunbiz> yes.... Im doing exactly that... and I think it was working earlier...
08:59:13 <sunbiz> but now it isnt working ??
08:59:48 <bwolfe> put xx${patient}xx into your jsp just to make sure you're getting an object
09:00:01 <bwolfe> because jsp fails silently with null if you put it in ${}
09:00:21 <sunbiz> didnt quite understand the last part
09:00:34 <sunbiz> xx${patient}xx... ??
09:03:32 <bwolfe> if you just put ${patient} or ${patient.patientId} in the jsp, you will see nothing
09:03:38 <bwolfe> (if patient is null)
09:04:00 <bwolfe> if you put xx${patient.patientId}xx you will either see xx1234xx or just xxxx
09:04:10 <bwolfe> if you just see xxxx, then you know you're not even getting a patient object
09:04:11 <sunbiz> bwolfe: u r the man!!!!!!
09:04:26 <sunbiz> finally after hitting my head for 2 days on the wall
09:04:56 <sunbiz> ur exception joined at the source of JSP pages has helped !!!
09:05:15 <sunbiz> bwolfe: wow.... how did u do that ??
09:05:31 <bwolfe> I don't know what you mean by "exception joined at the source"
09:05:52 <bwolfe> because I've run into errors like this all the time. never hesitate to ask
09:06:13 <sunbiz> I mean... the exception is commented ...and can be seen when u view source
09:06:16 <sunbiz> on a JSP page
09:06:38 *** jmiranda has joined #openmrs
09:06:38 *** ChanServ sets mode: +o jmiranda
09:06:40 <bwolfe> oh yeah, thats sweet. thats a pretty new thing
09:07:07 <bwolfe> just had to set the error handler in the openmrs header
09:07:09 <sunbiz> bwolfe: didnt u add that... I mean showing exception that can be seen when u view source on a JSP
09:07:15 <bwolfe> yeah
09:07:27 <bwolfe> so you were getting an exception, is that why is stopped working ?
09:07:44 <sunbiz> man... why didnt I think about it before... it was just an exception and the page wasnt being displayed....
09:07:54 <sunbiz> I had changed everything just for this !!
09:08:14 <sunbiz> :D :P :D :P
09:08:52 <sunbiz> why wasnt the tomcat showing the exception... I wouldnt have wasted so much time!!
09:08:55 <sunbiz> thanks ben !!
09:11:42 <sunbiz> actually feel like kicking myself for wasting so much time and not coming to the experts earlier
09:11:57 <sunbiz> probably my ego wanted to solve it myself... :(
09:15:43 <bwolfe> hehe, we all have that same ego problem sunbiz :-)

10:10:15 *** sioraiocht has quit IRC
10:10:17 <bwolfe> sessionForm has to be set in the modAppContext, yes
10:10:24 <bwolfe> if you set it at all...

10:13:00 <sunbiz> :(
10:15:45 <bwolfe> very interesting
10:16:06 <bwolfe> you can determine if its on page load or page submit with a method call

10:21:51 <nribeka> away now for a moments ...
10:23:35 <sunbiz> bwolfe: is the moduleContextApplication or the Module's Context being cached someplace ??
10:23:53 <sunbiz> or is it the same webapplicationContext that is available to the modules ??
10:24:04 <bwolfe> no, shouldn't be cached
10:24:27 <bwolfe> what do you mean "is available" ?
10:24:47 <sunbiz> I mean... when I write Context.something() ... this Conteext is Spring context right ??
10:24:59 <sunbiz> or does the module have a separate context of its own?
10:27:09 <sunbiz> God knows what happened... I undeployed openmrs from tomcat... then updated openmrs-trunk from SVN and then did a dist and then deployed the new war.... Now it isnt calling formBackingObject twice !!
10:27:27 <sunbiz> this was super wierd !! :o
10:33:27 <sunbiz> bwolfe: back again at formBackingObject beign called twice .... :'(

10:35:11 <bwolfe> sunbiz: Context is an openmrs object...its different than the "spring context" (spring calls its objects springApplicationContext). but yes, there is only one Context. your module is registered to that one when you load it
10:35:30 <bwolfe> sunbiz: throw some log output in there to figure out when/why

10:41:44 <bmckown> That should be fixable with the tomcat startup parameters.
10:41:56 <bmckown> they are located...
10:41:59 <sunbiz> yes... I already have it at 512
10:42:09 <sunbiz> how much more does it need... :(

10:43:13 <bmckown> hmm but 512 should be plenty
10:43:36 <sunbiz> yes... 512M is quite a bit for what Im doing...

10:43:50 <bmckown> for sure.
10:44:11 <sunbiz> somehow lately... Im beginning to hate Tomcat
10:44:16 <bmckown> you're using the netbeans internal tomcat, right?
10:44:18 <sunbiz> lot of other problems
10:44:31 <sunbiz> not the built-in
10:44:42 <sunbiz> but yea... starrting it from within netbeans

10:45:01 <sunbiz> v3 glassfish rocks big time!!!!
10:45:09 <bwolfe> sunbiz: tomcat leaks memory every time you reload openmrs. so after 3-5 reloads you're out of memory with 512M
10:45:28 <sunbiz> yes... thats what I meant tomcat problems
10:45:32 <bwolfe> sunbiz: openmrs should work in glassfish just fine, why not just use that? ;-)
10:45:34 <sunbiz> how much more does it need
10:45:43 <sunbiz> yes.... I've just done that now !!
10:45:47 <bmckown> just needs stop/start tomcat i guess.
10:46:03 <bwolfe> sunbiz: you'll always run out. just know that you have to stop the tomcat process every 4 openmrs reloads or so
10:46:54 <bmckown> and always clean the module before you build it. (you probably knew that)
10:47:29 <bwolfe> bmckown: really? I rarely do. what errors do you get if you don't ?
10:47:35 <sunbiz> yes... I did 3 undeploy and deploy of openmrs
10:47:40 <sunbiz> and it finished 512M
10:47:47 <bmckown> things like what sunbiz is getting above i thought.
10:48:41 <bmckown> if you change a class and its still holding on to the previous cached version no?
10:49:11 <sunbiz> yes... thats what I thought happens...
10:49:37 <bmckown> thing is, since i had problems with that i've always cleaned before each package-module for over a year now.
10:49:53 <sunbiz> bmckown: I was doing the deploy-web ant target... and it doesn't load moduleApplicationContext
10:50:09 <bmckown> and i thought bwolfe had told me over a year ago to be sure to clean the module to avoid those problems.
10:50:35 <sunbiz> bmckown: I followed ur advice and u bwolfe and was doing deploy-web
10:50:38 <r0bby> !oom
10:50:39 <OpenMRSBot> r0bby: "oom" --- Tomcat's memory management sucks. Increase your memory available to tomcat. See
10:50:43 <sunbiz> and it doesnt work well with windows
10:50:47 <r0bby> bmckown: ^ '
10:51:01 <bmckown> yea, it might not. i only use deploy-web for the simple jsp pages. not for things like openmrs-servlet.xml or the moduleApplicationContext etc

10:52:33 <bmckown> and now we have deploy-web explained much more clearly. thanks, bwolfe I always suspected that but never investigated it.
10:52:36 <sunbiz> bwolfe: why oh why...doesnt it!! I think deploy meant nice deploy!! ;-)
10:53:38 <bwolfe> it really should be deploy-just-the-web-files-so-that-I-dont-have-to-compile-my-module-and-reload-it-again

11:02:12 <bwolfe> whats the error with the resources ?
11:02:24 <r0bby> pebkac!
11:02:31 <sunbiz> NOD32 is an antivirus... which is only used in Windows
11:02:39 <sunbiz> not for *nix guys like u!! :P
11:02:43 <nribeka> r0bby, yeah :) it's not difficult after all
11:02:53 <sunbiz> the resources dont load...

11:07:24 <bmckown> yea, r0bby the groovy forms module still doesn't play nicely with the patient dashboard.
11:07:30 <sunbiz> and its not crossed 220M yet!!
11:07:39 <bwolfe> sunbiz: nice. so glassfish does memory stuff correctly then. :-)
11:07:57 <bmckown> that's okay... you haven't gotten to it yet, r0bby .
11:08:46 <sunbiz> now... if I can only figure out why formBackingObject is wierdly running twice sometime and sometimes only once
11:09:06 <sunbiz> bwolfe: yes... it seems to
11:09:27 <r0bby> bmckown: I've been focusing on other things
11:09:32 <sunbiz> bwolfe: only startup takes a lot of time... understandably due to all the stuff that it loads being a real web application
11:09:42 <r0bby> like getting them created, saving the model, view, and controller, etc :P
11:09:43 *** TorLye has joined #openmrs
11:09:50 <bmckown> yea that's okay. hehe
11:10:10 <r0bby> the patient dash kinda required that
11:10:23 <r0bby> but it also depends on the rendering servlet :P
11:10:23 <bmckown> yea. but...
11:10:24 <bwolfe> sunbiz: startup takes about 30 seconds on tomcat. how long on glassfish ?
11:10:42 <bmckown> the link to groovy documentation... maybe an additional link to the groovy module page?
11:10:42 <r0bby> benchmark jboss too.
11:10:51 <sunbiz> on my machine tomcat starts in 17secs now
11:11:06 <sunbiz> and glassfish in 36secs
11:11:08 <r0bby> how fast?
11:11:15 <r0bby> sunbiz: jboss
11:11:18 <r0bby> :P
11:11:24 <sunbiz> no jboss on this machine
11:11:28 <r0bby> grab it :P
11:11:44 <r0bby> I'll load it onto my new laptop and deploy openmrs
11:11:45 <sunbiz> BTW I like jBoss and websphere
11:11:54 <sunbiz> they r also pretty good for production systems
11:12:09 <sunbiz> just slower to start than even glassfish
11:12:28 <sunbiz> and the default RAM usage is over 350M
11:17:53 <sunbiz> bwolfe: r u sure... formBackingObject getting called twice happens only in module ??
11:17:59 <sunbiz> doesnt it happen elsewhere ??
11:18:45 <bwolfe> it should be called twice only if you set sessionForm=false for your controller
11:19:55 <sunbiz> yes... thats the ideal thing... but is the ideal thing happening in OpenMRS ??
11:20:31 <sunbiz> because its happening in other forms as well... not just my module
11:20:57 <sunbiz> I did a System.out.println at other formBackingObject... and it seems to happen randomly at other places
11:21:06 <sunbiz> atleast on my machine
11:21:13 <bwolfe> sunbiz: we have some controllers that are sessionForms and some that aren't
11:24:39 * r0bby doesn'
11:24:46 <r0bby> t use Spring controllers
11:24:53 <r0bby> I dont wanna learn them

16:09:07 <r0bby> you could probably do it via the user service
16:09:25 <r0bby> i cant wait til i can code again
16:09:28 <r0bby> god
16:09:29 <bmckown> location may be stored as a PersonAddress, a PersonAttribute, or a location on an encounter
16:09:30 <r0bby> I can finnally close the lid!
16:09:30 <r0bby> :D
16:09:46 <bmckown> i was thinking the patient service or maybe the person service
16:09:49 <r0bby> bmckown: to run my code
16:09:57 <r0bby> change the admin user to have a username
16:10:05 <r0bby> I know you're following it :X
16:10:24 <r0bby> Burke/Paul have a lot of faith in me
16:10:55 <r0bby> I wrote a patch to reverse (or at least provide the ability to remove) this code I wrote; I screwed up 5x :X

16:11:48 <r0bby> 1st time i had code that wasn't relevent in the patch (i was implementing Access Control Lists for Factoids
16:11:52 <r0bby> (adding/removing)

16:12:19 <bmckown> oh, yea you want users.

16:12:31 <huntp> i reckon it would make sense to have a method called getUserByLocation on the UserService
16:12:41 <r0bby> propose it :)
16:12:49 <r0bby> this is a collaborative effort
16:13:00 <r0bby> on an off note, my lack of experience screwed me over
16:13:07 <huntp> what is the channel for proposing this?
16:13:15 <r0bby> the dev list
16:13:20 <bmckown> it's probably not there just because no one has needed it yet.
16:13:39 <huntp> ok - should be quite easy to create eh?
16:13:49 <bmckown> but they may say that it belongs in the PersonService
16:14:33 <bmckown> yea, to create is easy.
16:15:13 <huntp> is this the type of thing I could write and submit to the SVN, or is there a core dev team that takes these requests and implements them?
16:16:42 <r0bby> don't commit, submit a patch to trac
