I've refined the build a bit to add a couple of things we need, and modified some of RVDB's preferences to match our own; there will probably be some more of this work to do. I've also written a tiny test site that we can use to quickly confirm that everything is working. And it is working! We now have what looks like a reliable build script that can be run any time. We should run it regularly (once a month?) and archive the builds, so that we have the potential to roll things back if a future build goes bad. Next steps:
To access taporshare on the MacOS:
command-k to open the dialogue
URI - smb://taporshare.tapor.uvic.ca/<sharename>
Username - uvic\<netlinkId>
If you forget the "uvic\" in the username field the authentication will fail.
Investigation and testing related to the container-encoding setting in the new Cocoon build process led me to discover a bug that's currently affecting sites on Pear's Tomcat-dev when accessed through Apache. Here's an illustration of the problem:
If you go to the Mariage site search page on Pear, accessed on its Tomcat port, and search for "mariée", you'll get correct results. However, if you access the site through Apache and the virtual domain and do the same search, you'll get garbled results.
The problem seems to be this:
We build our recent Cocoon stacks as all-UTF-8, and set up Tomcat as well to use UTF-8, but it appears that the last stage in the process, when Apache talks to Tomcat, is not working in UTF-8. We've done a bit of research, and based on this page:http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Using+Apache+with+mod_jk
Two things may need to be changed:
<!-- Define an AJP 1.3 Connector on port 8009 --> <Connector port="8019" protocol="AJP/1.3" redirectPort="8081" />changed to:
<!-- Define an AJP 1.3 Connector on port 8009 --> <Connector port="8019" protocol="AJP/1.3" redirectPort="8081" URIEncoding="UTF-8" />
For the moment, this only applies to Tomcat-dev; Pear's Tomcat-stable is running legacy projects which operate in 8859-1 encoding, and they're working fine.
Wrote to sysadmin to request that they look at this and see if it makes sense.
