new WebService Module Component.pm with xmlrpc function edit()
attached is the new WebService module Component.pm I added to it xmlrpc
function edit() which should replace our function editComponent().
One thing we need to discuss is that ,, in our current rh_bugzilla_2_18 we have
in the xmlrpc function editComponent() code to re-assign bugs of the component,
I am not really sure if we have to do that for the new function attached here
which is edit() ?? In my opinion it is not necessary, and I think this
functionality is rarely used.
Inputs: hasref with component&product names and fields that will be edited = 1
Outputs: authentication errors , input validation errors, logging messages,
hashref with changes details = 4
Inquiries: components data , user data, product data = 3
Logical files: Zero
External files = Zero
FP total count(simple weighting factor)= (3*1)+(4*4)+(3*3)+(7*0)+(5*0)= 25
FP = 25 * 1.11 = 28
LOC = 28 * 60 = 1680
For Unit testing:
100 LOC for one xmlrpc testcase
total LOC = 1680+100 = 1780 LOC
changed the code for WebService Function Bugzilla::WebService::Component::update()
submitted code upstream for review.
updated code to throw and error when updating name of multiple components of the
same product + added POD
This feature is included now in Milestone 2. Any bugs found with this feature
