Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 535720
Recreated (deleted then created) package backed resources maintain old backing package assignment
Last modified: 2013-09-01 06:02:01 EDT
Create New a package backed resource, like a Tomcat WAR
Update the package, say, deploy a new version of the webapp.
Delete the WAR
- note, this delete only marks the resource as DELETED, it maintains all the relationships, like history etc, *installed package*, etc
Recreate the WAR (same app name) with a different version of the app than was last deployed (for example, the original version)
Although the deploy works and the desired bits are being run for Tomcat, the InstalledPackage is the same as it was when we deleted the resource. So, retrieving backing package info is incorrect. Also, the installed package history looks weird in the GUI since the wrong info is displayed.
This scenario is probably limited outside of testing but the result can be pretty bad if you do in fact run into this.
Marking for 1.3, for triage purposes
(10:47:31 AM) ccrouch: jshaughn: this is presumably how it worked in 2.2 too?
(10:47:52 AM) jshaughn: I believe so, I marked it 1.3pre
(10:48:30 AM) jshaughn: I think it's an unlikely scenario
(10:48:43 AM) ccrouch: right
(10:49:28 AM) ccrouch: also we dont end up deploying the wrong thing
(10:49:38 AM) jshaughn: that's correct
(10:49:42 AM) ccrouch: so i dont think its huge
(10:51:28 AM) jshaughn: It's bad in that the Deployed version info (current and history) in the GUI is wrong and that if you get the backing package via, say, a script, it's the wrong bits.
This bug was previously known as http://jira.rhq-project.org/browse/RHQ-2387
The reported problem should now be fixed due to the content system changes. The unit tests need to be updated to add back code affected by the reported problem.
Verification steps for QE
1) RHQ server started, RHQ agent running, CLI connected to RHQ server
2) Inventoried Tomcat Server, JBoss AS4 or JBoss EAP5.1
3) Need the ID of a content backed resource, eg. an application resource. The ID can be retrieved from the UI http://localhost:7080/coregui/#Resource/14932, the last portion of the url is the ID of the resource.
4) A sample war application to be deployed to the application server
5) A folder to backup applications from the server
1) Navigate in the UI to the selected application resource, content tab, history subtab.
2) From the CLI run the following commands:
3) applicationResource = ProxyFactory.getResource(14932)
5) applicationResource.updateBackingContent("/resources/new/newcontent.war", "1.2")
7) Navigate in the UI to the resource that was just updated to the Content tab
1) Verify that after Step 1, the Full Package Audit Trail table, version column has either a normal number (eg. 1.2.3) or sha256. The version field should not be empty.
2) Verify that the archive retrieved in Step 3 is the exact archive that was deployed on the server before running the test
3) Verify that after Step 4 the new application has been actually deployed on the application server. Check the file system where the application server deploys content.
4) Verify that after Step 4 the new application has RHQ-Sha256 attribute in the manifest.
5) Verify that after Step 5 the archive downloaded is the application deployed in Step 4
6) Verify the content tab, history subtab has the following:
a) Full Package Audit Trail table has the correct package information marked as Discovered, including correct version.
b) Completed Requests table has information regarding the request submitted from the CLI, including submitted version.
Some negative test cases:
1) Step 4, point to an existing file
2) Step 5, point to a non-existing file
3) Step 6, retrieve content twice in two separate files and then compare the results
4) Step 5, repeat the step with a different version. Observe in the UI that that version is from the last call and two entries in the deployment log.
master branch commit:
Bulk closing of items that are on_qa and in old RHQ releases, which are out for a long time and where the issue has not been re-opened since.
