Description Jay Shaughnessy 2008-07-16 17:50:00 EDT
today we have three bracketed expression tokens: traits, pluginConfiguration, resourceConfiguration

their expressions look something like:


the UI needs to somehow show what the available property names are.
Comment 1 Joseph Marques 2008-07-18 10:55:30 EDT
this is related to RHQ-401, but is a simpler way of getting users of the system up and running with dynagroups without having to build a large expression builder.  a library / look-up mechanism would get users 80% of the way there, and only require 20% of the effort a full expression builder would take.
Comment 2 Joseph Marques 2008-07-18 13:05:32 EDT
rev1113 - support a property name library for lookup up properties;
properties can be traitNames, pluginConfigurationProperties, resourceConfigurationProperties;
properties are classified by the plugin and resource type they belong to;

rev1115 - since ewe allow both null/missing and empty tags for certain parts of the rhq-plugin.xml, let's be a little more proactive in catching errors in both of those cases;

you can see this feature by going to the view or edit page for any individual group definition. click the blue question mark icon at the upper right-hand corner of the textarea for the group definition conditions box.

so far, this is just the raw functionality. i'll leave it up to testers / other devs to decide whether it need to be made "pretty".
Comment 4 Jeff Weiss 2008-08-04 16:12:56 EDT
This feature will be fully incorporated into RHQ-401.  No need to test features that will be replaced anyway.

<ghinkle> consider 686 to have been sucked into 401
