08:59:57 <sprasanna> bwolfe: Hi Ben
09:00:45 <bwolfe> hey sri
09:00:54 <sprasanna> bwolfe: i see this line "<c:forEachitems="${model.layoutTemplate.lines}"var="line">" in addressLayout.jsp but i want to know where the feed comes from... can you help me with that?
09:02:01 <bwolfe> what do you mean by "feed" ?
09:03:23 <sprasanna> the jsp file pulls the address component from somewhere to build the <input> tags for the page na... i need to know where it gets those data..
09:05:37 <bwolfe> the object returned by model.getLayoutTemplate is an AddressTemplate object
09:05:45 <bwolfe> AddressTemplate extends LayoutTemplate
09:05:54 <bwolfe> LayoutTemplate has a method called getLines()
09:06:15 <bwolfe> getLines() returns the extremely ugly "List<List<Map<String,String>>>" !!
09:06:47 <sprasanna> oh thanks a lot ben

10:17:49 <upul> Hi bwolfe
10:18:19 <bwolfe> hey upul
10:19:19 <upul> it looks like table names are hardcoded in the source
10:21:34 <upul> about converting sql diff to xml format, problem will be not being able to test with each version
10:22:49 <bwolfe> upul: what do you mean by test with each version ?
10:23:39 <upul> convesion is possible, but can't check for mistakes with each version
10:23:59 <bwolfe> upul: hmm, I still don't know what you mean
10:24:01 <upul> when adding a sql diff entry that has been tested at that time by the added person
10:24:29 <upul> but we are not testing each one with each incremental version
10:25:23 <bwolfe> upul: I don't think converting to the xml is really worth it. if there was a way to call that file from liquibase as the first entry in the new liquibase format, that would work. it would give a common starting point for all future updates.
10:26:28 <bwolfe> upul: need to run. be back later
10:26:32 <upul> ok

11:49:35 <sprasanna> bwolfe: y i dont find LayoutTemplate in javadoc api?
11:50:35 <bwolfe> sprasanna: I think its in the web layer
11:50:46 <bwolfe> sprasanna: because its an interface/presentatino kind of thing
11:50:54 <bwolfe> sprasanna: are you using eclipse ?
11:51:01 <sprasanna> bwolfe: yeah
11:51:12 <sprasanna> bwolfe: using eclipse
11:51:23 <bwolfe> sprasanna: if so, you can use control-shift-t, and then type in LayoutTemplate...or even just type in LaTem and you'll see it
11:51:31 *** njero_ has joined #openmrs
11:52:19 <sprasanna> bwolfe: its not an interface i guess
11:52:27 *** njero has quit IRC
11:52:36 <sprasanna> abstract class
11:52:50 <bwolfe> yes, abstract class that AddressTemplate and NameTempalte extend
11:53:42 <sprasanna> if i create a package like org.openmrs.layout.web with a class LayoutTemplate. will it override the existing one??
11:54:02 <sprasanna> bwolfe: i tried but it dint work
11:54:20 <sprasanna> bwolfe: i just wanna confirm whether i am wrong at some place
11:55:00 <bwolfe> sprasanna: why do you want to override it ?
11:55:07 <bwolfe> sprasanna: why not just use it ?
11:56:56 <sprasanna> bwolfe: hmmm.. i just want to alter that getLines() method alone.. if i do that then i need not modify much in controller and addresslayout jsp
11:57:36 <bwolfe> sprasanna: I see
11:57:47 <bwolfe> well, you can't "override" a java class like that unfortuantely
11:58:06 <sprasanna> bwolfe: yeah i know that but gave it a try
11:58:19 <bwolfe> you might be able to set the template to use to your module class..which just extends TemplateLayout and overrides the getLines method
11:58:49 *** njero_ has quit IRC
11:58:49 <bwolfe> sprasanna: the spring bean defines the class to use: <bean id="addressTemplateRwanda" class="org.openmrs.layout.web.address.AddressTemplate">
11:58:59 <bwolfe> sprasanna: are you defining your own address layout beans ?
11:59:26 <sprasanna> bwolfe: not yet but it seems i have to
11:59:58 <sprasanna> the line you just gave is it from rwanda registration module?
12:00:45 <bwolfe> sprasanna: its in openmrs-servlet.xml
12:00:55 <sprasanna> oh
12:03:06 <bwolfe> sprasanna: ideally those address and name beans in openmrs-servlet.xml are moved to global properties so they can be definied by the user....similar to what darius did with the regimens:

12:12:29 <OpenMRSBot> Recent updates in the world of openmrs: Upul Godage: OpenMRS database auto update <>
12:24:05 <sprasanna> bwolfe: where can i find any example for modifyiing global properties?
12:24:41 <bwolfe> sprasanna: most global properties are edited on the global property administration screen
12:25:07 <bwolfe> sprasanna: but ideally you just put the globalpropertyportlet on a separate jsp page
12:30:13 <sprasanna> bwolfe: the default value for address format in global prop page is "general".. i can create something like this <bean id="addressHierarchyTemplate" class="org.openmrs.layout.web.address.AddressTemplate">... and i can set its properties in the module application context xml so what i want to now is when i load my module can i do something like this setProperty(layout.address.format) and setProperty("addresshierarchy") ??
12:35:18 <bwolfe> sprasanna: this might work:
12:35:47 <bwolfe> create a bean in your modules application context like <bean id="addressTemplateUS" class="org.openmrs.layout.web.address.AddressTemplate"> (which is in openmrs-servlet.xml)
12:36:09 <bwolfe> your class="..." would be your implementation/extend of AddressTemplate that overrides the getLines method
12:36:42 <bwolfe> then the only thing you need to do is get your bean id into the addressSupport object
12:38:31 <bwolfe> sprasanna: we probably need to change AddressSupport.setLayoutTemplates(List) to do: this.layoutTemplates.addAllThatArentInTheList(layoutTemplates); (instead of just doing this.layoutTemplates = layoutTemplates)
12:40:15 <sprasanna> oh
12:44:32 <bwolfe> sprasanna: does that make sens e?
12:44:46 <bwolfe> sprasanna: did you follow the objects I was looking at in openmrs-servlet.xml ?
12:44:51 <sprasanna> yeah it makes
12:44:53 <sprasanna> sense
12:45:27 <sprasanna> yeah now im little bit confused with the AddressSupport.setLayoutTemplates
12:47:47 <bwolfe> sprasanna: how so ?
12:48:03 <sprasanna> i mean i dont understand that part clearly
12:48:16 <bwolfe> there will be only one AddressSupport object in the system because of how the contructor works
12:48:36 <bwolfe> the AddressSupport.layoutTemplates are the objects available to the user
12:49:09 <bwolfe> the user puts "usa" into their global properties table, and the "usa" template is looked up in the AddressSupport.layoutTemplates list
12:51:17 <sprasanna> but modifying the module application context xml doesnt work or i dunno i have done any mistake...
12:52:03 <bwolfe> sprasanna: what do you have in your modappcontext? is it committed to svn ?
12:52:05 *** bmckown has quit IRC
12:52:38 <sprasanna> i tried modyfing the property keys and values in addressTemplateGeneral
12:52:52 <sprasanna> bwolfe: no its not committed yet i am just working on it
12:53:32 <sprasanna> i did like this bwolfe: create a bean in your modules application context like <bean id="addressTemplateUS" class="org.openmrs.layout.web.address.AddressTemplate"> (which is in openmrs-servlet.xml)
12:54:04 *** bmckown has joined #openmrs
12:54:04 *** ChanServ sets mode: +o bmckown
12:54:10 <sprasanna> i just modified the addressTemplateGeneral but i dont see any difference in my addresslayout page...
12:54:20 <bwolfe> yours would be like: <bean id="addressTemplateWithHierarchy" class="org.openmrs.module.addresshierarchy.HierarchyTemplate">
12:55:13 <bwolfe> and you would need <bean parent="addressSupport" > <property name="layoutTemplate"><list><bean id="addressTemplateWithHierarchy"/></list></property></bean>
12:55:18 <bwolfe> or something like htat
12:56:00 <bwolfe> but with how hte core code is now, after installing your module, AddressSupport.layoutTemplates would /only/ contain your addressTemplateWithHierarchy object
12:58:13 <sprasanna> is it?? you mean my xml will override the complete addressSupport bean?
12:58:44 <bwolfe> upul: if liquibase won't run our sql file, perhaps we could just put a precondition on the liquibase xml doc to check the global_property database_version for the last one in the update-to-latest-mysql.diff. then we tell users to run the update-to-latest file and restart the war file
12:59:01 <bwolfe> upul: then all future updates will just use the liquibase xml file
12:59:22 <upul> bwolfe: that sounds good
12:59:40 <bwolfe> sprasanna: <bean parent="addressSupport" > <property name="layoutTemplate"><list><bean id="addressTemplateWithHierarchy"/></list></property></bean> will use the already defined "addressSupport" object...and call setLayoutTemplates(list of one)
13:02:02 <bwolfe> upul: or you create a customchange java class to run it. :-) (assuming the user is running mysql of course)
13:02:03 <OpenMRSBot> <> (at
13:02:19 <sprasanna> bwolfe: please have a look at this
13:02:59 <sprasanna> is there any mistake in tat xml?
13:06:31 <bwolfe> sprasanna: yeah, thats what I was thinking
13:06:51 <sprasanna> bwolfe: but unfortunately thats not working :(
13:06:58 <bwolfe> sprasanna: expect you shouldn't have <bean id="addressTemplateWithHierarchy" class="org.openmrs.layout.web.address.AddressTemplate"> the class attribute should be your own class from your module that overrides the getLines method
