Built-in Messaging Table

https://spaces.at.internet2.edu/display/Grouper/Grouper+messaging+built+in

  • Chris is working on the Built-in messaging table

  • Like change log consumer, a message is a record in the table w timestamp on when sent

  • For change log, rely on the timestamp and add 3 more digits of precision

  • helps to set the order  if two machines are putting in messages

 

Q: is this for ordering or to resolve conflicts?

A: it is for ordering

if you have comments, let Chris know

TIER update

http://www.internet2.edu/vision-initiatives/initiatives/trust-identity-education-research/

  • There has been discussion of versioning in context of TIER

  • In the Grouper Project, we don’t use “RC” for release candidates

  • We use same numbers for released version as for candidate

  • inside the Grouper code, such as in Web Service, the version # gets parsed

  • if we change our approach, we need to find all such places in Grouper Code where the code looks at the version

https://spaces.at.internet2.edu/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=41582755

https://spaces.at.internet2.edu/display/Grouper/Release+steps#Releasesteps-ReleaseNumberingandTestingPeriod

 

 

  • Should projects such as Grouper change their versioning scheme for the TIER Collaboration?

  • This is being explored

  • Idea: Could there be a common way to print out the versioning info that a user sends to support  if they have a problem?

===

 

  • Tom : there is TIER Architecture work ongoing to develop principles for TIER.

  • The outputs will go to TIER investor council and TIER developers to help direct TIER

  • Reviewing the requirements that emerged from workshops
