Steps needed to make a Grouper release
- WS tests (DONE)
- Look at jars not supposed to be there (from Chad) (DONE)
- Chris and Emily to announce and update wiki
- Emily check wiki make sure things are up to date
- This week
Verifying cherry-picks from branch are in master
This is a somewhat tedious step, as not all commits are official cherry picks (they could be two similar commits), and some cherry picks don't get detected as identical changes (e.g. if there is a merge conflict).
As a first step, run `git checkout <branch>; git cherry master`. This will list all the commits in the branch. Commits with a minus (-) sign are already cherry picked. and commits with a plus (+) sign need further investigation. This will narrow down the investigation a lot. Alternatively, you can use `git log --left-right --graph --cherry-mark --oneline GROUPER_2_3_BRANCH...master` which will show the commit graph for both branches, with '<' for the commits only in the branch and '=' for cherry-picked commits.
For the commits needing attention, there is often no quick way to verify they have been applied to master. Probably the easiest thing to do is look at what changed using `git show <commit>`, see what changed, and then `git blame <filename>` in the master branch to see if the changes somehow made it to master. Github also has a git blame function, so you can compare changes in two different windows. Another way to compare, if you can find a master commit with the same commit message, is to do a `git show` in both commits and compare the differences (maybe using the diff command). If the only differences are in line numbers and spacing, the commits are a good match.
For all the commits that can't be accounted for, ask the original committers to look into why they never got cherry-picked.
Changes in git
Edit all the README.txt files
Edit all misc/version.properties (Chris TODO)
Update Grouper specsheet software requirements page (Shilen)
Grouper client (Chris)
- conf/grouper.client*.properties grouperClient.webService.client.version = v2_4_000
- GrouperVersion.java (Chris)
- Run the command line utility to code generate which jars/sizes/etc are expected: GrouperCheckconfig.main() (did this but do it again in final version) (Chris)
Grouper installer (Chris)
- Documentation for getting jars for client and installer from maven and maybe download a properties file from git
- If there is a new minor version with changes to the wsdl, add a new source folder for that version, copy the coresoap *.javas over to it, refactor to change the package, change the build.xml to build a WSDL for that version. Change GrouperService to be like a previous version but add new methods or change methods in it (DONE)
- Make sure that there is no coresoap (package) in use in src/grouper_ws_v1_6, src/grouper_ws_v2_0, etc. Take out all src/grouper_ws_vx_x except one, make sure they dont depend on each other (DONE)
- Generate the wssec aar's and commit them (DONE)
- Generate WSDLs and commit them (DONE)
- Add src/grouper-ws_v2_4 to the source list of the Maven build-help plugin in grouper-ws/grouper-ws/pom.xml (DONE)
Search for the old version (e.g. 2.2.2 or 2_2_2 or 2_2_002) in all the files (Chris)
See which config files / jar files / ddl changed since last release, make sure there are entries in the change log. (do we do this anymore? Grouper changes v2.2)
If its a minor release, change the release version policy page
Make sure the crontab on webprod3 is installed for this version to make the "grouper.all*.tar.gz tarball"
Git Release Commit
This is the single commit that will be the official release. All code work should be finished at this point.
Create a new branch: git checkout -b GROUPER_2_4_BRANCH
Edit all the pom.xmls <version> tags
- FROM <version>2.4.0-SNAPSHOT</version>
- TO <version>2.4.0</version>
Look for other snapshot references that needs to change: `find . -name pom.xml | xargs grep SNAPSHOT`
Compile grouperClient and morphString with the 2.4.0 tag, in case the jar size changes
Update checkConfig with the grouperClient file size
Update grouperClient and morphString jars in the grouper lib (anywhere else?)
Commit in the new branch. Note, if this is in the master branch, or any other branch that Travis will act on, include "[ci skip]" in the commit message, so that it won't build and publish to the Sonatype snapshot repository.
Push the new branch (TODO needs an extra git command to track the remote?)
For the commit just pushed, tag as GROUPER_2_4_0 and push
Or, if there is already a GROUPER_2_4_0 tag, these steps will override it in the remote repository:
In the branch, change pom 2.4.0->2.4.1-SNAPSHOT, update .travis.yml to include the 2.4 branch, commit, test build, commit, and push
In master, change pom 2.4.0-SNAPSHOT->2.5.0-SNAPSHOT, test build, commit, and push
Handle Copyright According to Policy
Run the copyright wizard on the entire branch for java files. Or you can diff in version control and go through the new files. Note, only new files should have diffs... this is the custom copyright. You can update the year for new files, don't update the year for existing files. The year should be used and not a range. That is our policy on copyrights. (dont want to change all files)
Make sure the subjects.sql and quickstart.xml file are in the release directory (copy from 2.3.0)
- Make sure all tables, views, and cols (of tables and views) have comments in the DB (oracle or postgres). (TO DO on a rainy day)
- Make sure the grouper-ws and gruoper-ui web.xml file has the security basic auth in there (didn't get accidentally overridden in commit)
If possible run a security scan against a test instance - University of Pennsylvania via Chris?
*We have not carried out a thorough security review of the existing code base for any version of Grouper. We should do that in order for the incremental reviews to be adequate
Run API (SuiteDefault) JUnit tests (set true in all JUnit test includes in grouper.properties). Also run the Grouper Installer, it should end in success for the client connecting to the WS and you should be able to use the UI.
API JUnit Tests
MySQL (with utf/bin collation table types)
- MySQL windows
- MySQL unix with case sensitive table names
Try the UI with a few different languages in the browser request (en without US, french, something not common)
Try checkConfig tests.
Upgrade from x.y-1 to x.y (e.g. 2.3 to 2.4).
- Install 2.3.0
- Download and run 2.4 installer
- Open the UI, browse around
- Upgrade to 2.4.0: v2.4 Upgrade Instructions from v2.3
- Download the installer
- Open the UI, browse around
Install the grouper installer
- Download grouper installer
- Run: java -jar grouperInstaller.jar
- Try the UI that was installed
- Make sure gsh.sh and gsh works in api, ws, ui for 2.4.0
OS X (10.6)
Web Service JUnit Tests (Grouper WS and Grouper Client) (Shilen work on for 2.4.0, has errors in client tests)
WS samples (DONE for 2.4.0)
WS javadoc (generate, commit, test). Make sure new operations / args / etc are documented in the WS doc page (TODO?)
UI internationalization tests (TODO?)
Test an API patch
Compile test on server
Packaging and releasing
- ssh to i2mibuild.internet2.edu
- cd to ~mchyzer
- Build all with: [mchyzer@i2mibuild mchyzer]$ bin/buildGrouperAll.sh GROUPER_x_y_z
- This is the same as these individual commands:
- bin/buildGrouper.sh GROUPER_x_y_z
- bin/buildGrouperWs.sh GROUPER_x_y_z
- bin/buildGrouperClient.sh GROUPER_x_y_z
- bin/buildGrouperUi.sh GROUPER_x_y_z
- bin/buildGrouperQs.sh GROUPER_x_y_z
- Note: sometimes the grouperWs doesnt build correctly due to a bug with javadoc, just try building the ws again...
Resulting .tar.gz's are in ~mchyzer/tmp/grouperAll/build_<username>. There are both source and binary tarballs for the API and Client packages.
- scp packages built above, to:
- Build to demo server, after the release is tagged, and built on the build server in Chris' directory... (TODO after release)
[appadmin@i2midev1 2.0.0]$ pwd
[appadmin@i2midev1 2.0.0]$ ./upgrade_2.0.0.sh
Packaging and releasing : provisioning
After tagging, publish to maven central by following the instructions on v2.1.0 Grouper Development Environment Using Maven.
grouper.psp-version.tar.gz to the release URL.
Archive the current release
- Create PDF of current documentation for the release archive
- Browse -> Advanced -> Export Space
- select PDF, uncheck save comments, clear all
- select pages to export. try to omit non-product pages, defunct pages, and pages for future releases.
- export, save to desktop, rename and attach to GrouperWG/Archives
- update Archives page with info from the current vN.N+Release+Notes page and links from the Software+Download page.
Update vN.N+Release+Notes page
Generally roll notes from the oldest release off and add notes for the new release. Keep previous release notes in there, so that we always have current + previous.
Update Software+Download page
- Make sure you have copied this to the archives page per above
- freshen links and rows in software download table
- freshen cvs info at bottom of page
- update release date
Review product pages
- Ensure that each page identifies which version it's current for, as in "Building the Grouper API as of v1.4.1" as an h2 at the top.
- Review incoming and outgoing links info for each page.
- If there's new features with new pages, update the Grouper+Product page to appropriately reference the new pages.
- Is it all there?
- Are there pages in the Working Group or Community areas that have graduated to being core product doc? Negotiate with originator to move them over to the product pages.
Just update the "NEW!!" message on this page. Maybe review the Background section to see if it could use some freshening. Maybe add a news item
Review Training Videos
- Determine which Grouper training videos need to be updated. Are new training videos required?
Review Impact, if any, on TIER Grouper Deployment Guide
- Consider if the new release should lead to any changes/updates in the TIER Grouper Deployment Guide
- if yes, discuss with Bill Thompson, Lafayette College
Update Grouper Wiki Documentation
- Update the Grouper Downloads page
- Update wiki pages for all changed features.
- Add a new selection to the Grouper Admin Guides TOC if needed. See here https://spaces.at.internet2.edu/x/UAfw
- Be sure that Grouper wiki doc pages for new features are moved from the Development Items are and area and instead linked from the Admin Guides area.
- Review the Glossary, remembering this could be a first place new people go to learn important terms. It seems rusty to Emily but not exactly sure how to improve it. HELP appreciated.
- Be sure that wiki pages on new Features are linked correctly from the Admin Guides TOC page
Release Numbering and Testing Period
As of Feb. 2012, these procedures were adopted regarding release numbering and testing:
- The X.X.0 release will be considered a pre-release, like a Release Candidate
- That will be the testing release
- The X.X.1 release will be the actual release, presumably after any initial bugs identified have been fixed.
Talk to the TIER packaging team to see what their plan is
Notify about the release
- Compose email to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com with highlights of the new release and link to the Grouper Downloads page
- email to mw-announce [at] internet2.edu email list
- Highlights should resemble those on the vN.N Release Notes page and maybe even be identical.
- If it's especially enlightening, also include a direct link to the changelog (vN.N+Release+Notes#vN.NReleaseNotes-changelog) or to an appropriate Jira report.
- Change jira admin to make that version released, and if the next build or version isnt there, add it
- update Grouper website features page to highlight newest Grouper features
- Social Media: Announce the new Grouper release on the InCommon and Internet2 Facebook and Twitter accounts as appropriate
- work with Todd Sedmak, Internet2 PR & Media Relations Manager, around other possible publicity/press releases etc.
- A Grouper Team member (DaveL for the Grouper 2.2 release) will create a Youtube video (using same tools as the Grouper Training videos) highlighting new features
- promote this video in coordination with the Internet2 Marketing and Communications Team
- schedule a webinar to promote the new release
Publishing Maven jars to Sonatype (Maven Central)
Make sure you are at the official release commit, as it's the only commit without a -SNAPSHOT version number
git checkout GROUPER_2_4_0 (warnings about detached HEAD are ok, just remember to checkout an actual branch when finished)
The Maven step will package all the artifacts, gpg sign them (creating *.asc for all the objects) then upload them to the Sonatype staging repository
Go to https://oss.sonatype.org/#stagingRepositories and there should be a newly created grouper repository with the artifacts inside. The login and password for Sonatype can be found in ~/.m2/settings.xml.
Maven central is https://search.maven.org/search?q=grouper
Sonatype URL immediate repo:
If the objects are all there and look ok, click the close icon to freeze the repository. At that point, you should test the objects, by trying to building something, using the staging repository as if it were the release repository. In your .m2/settings.xml, add:
If it builds ok, click the release icon for the repository, and then it will be moved to the official release repository. Within a few hours, it may be synchronized to other Maven repositories.
If something isn't right with the staging repository, just drop it and the Maven build will create a new one with a different increment number.
