Description Larry O'Leary 2010-10-25 19:20:46 UTC
Description of problem:
If an application is deployed to an AS instance's farm directory and the Update Content operation is performed, application is no longer deployed to farm.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHQ 3.0.0
JON 2.4.0
Embedded JOPR (admin-console) with EAP 5.0.0, EAP 5.0.1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup a two node EAP cluster
2. Deploy an application (EAR/WAR) to node1's farm using admin-console
3. Verify application was deployed to both node1 and node2
4. Update the application using the same EAR/WAR (From admin-console, expand and select the deployed EAR/WAR and select it's Content tab and then click Update)

Actual results:
The updated deployed application is now only deployed to node1 in its deploy directory

Expected results:
The updated deployed application is deployed to node1 and node2 and appears in their farm directory

Additional info:
This is a result of the StandaloneManagedDeploymentComponent.deployPackages method invoking DeploymentUtils.deployArchive without a means of passing in whether to deploy farmed or not. Currently, the method appears to support a deployExploded boolean but no method of passing in whether it is farmed or not. The DeploymentUtils.deployArchive method should probably accept a deployFarmed boolean as well as the deployPackages method being updated to check to see if the updated deployment was farmed. Of course, this may be very error prone as this would be directly tied to a hard-coded path name. Maybe we should gather these options from ProfileService or Inventory before we remove the old deployment?

This issue also appears to be the direct cause of https://issues.jboss.org/browse/JBPAPP-8084

Comment 6 Charles Crouch 2012-04-12 19:14:45 UTC
unassigning from Ian as he's focused on EAP6

Comment 7 John Mazzitelli 2012-04-17 19:08:05 UTC

for setting up a cluster. but...

03:05:01 PM) loleary: No need for an actual cluster...
(03:06:07 PM) loleary: Basically... deploy farmed and confirm the app shows up in ${JBOSS_CONF}/farmed
(03:06:29 PM) loleary: Then, re-deploy and you will see it get moved from ${JBOSS_CONF}/farmed to ${JBOSS_CONF}/deploy

Comment 8 Larry O'Leary 2012-04-17 19:11:59 UTC
A cluster is not necessary to confirm the bad behavior of WAR/EAR being deployed to farmed and then re-deployed to deploy, but for testing, an easy way to setup a two node cluster is:

Install EAP 5 as normal
Copy all or production configuration to server1 and server2
Be sure to enable admin account (jmx-console-users.properties) for server1 and serer2
Then start server1 as normal
   # Start EAP server1
   # EAP 5.1.2 
      pushd "${TESTENV_DIR}/$(basename ${PRODDIST_BRANCH})/jboss-as" \
      && rm -rf server/server1/log \
      && cd bin \
      && ./run.sh -c server1 -b &

Then start server2 using a different port number and ServerPeerID
   # Start EAP server2
   # EAP 5.1.2 
      pushd "${TESTENV_DIR}/$(basename ${PRODDIST_BRANCH})/jboss-as" \
      && rm -rf server/server1/log \
      && cd bin \
      && ./run.sh -c server2 -b -Djboss.service.binding.set=ports-01 -Djboss.messaging.ServerPeerID=1 &

not only did I see the file get deployed to deploy/ and removed from farm/ but I also got the attached exception.

Comment 12 John Mazzitelli 2012-04-17 20:35:20 UTC
looks like we need to do the same thing that org.rhq.plugins.jbossas5.deploy.ManagedComponentDeployer.deploy(CreateResourceReport, ResourceType) does - it appears to switch to farm mode, then deploys:

            DeploymentManager deploymentManager = this.profileServiceConnection.getDeploymentManager();
            boolean deployFarmed = deployTimeConfig.getSimple("deployFarmed").getBooleanValue();
            if (deployFarmed) {
                Collection<ProfileKey> profileKeys = deploymentManager.getProfiles();
                boolean farmSupported = false;
                for (ProfileKey profileKey : profileKeys) {
                    if (profileKey.getName().equals(FARM_PROFILE_KEY.getName())) {
                        farmSupported = true;
                if (!farmSupported) {
                    throw new IllegalStateException("This application server instance is not a node in a cluster, "
                        + "so it does not support farmed deployments. Supported deployment profiles are " + profileKeys
                        + ".");
                if (deployExploded) {
                    throw new IllegalArgumentException(
                        "Deploying farmed applications in exploded form is not supported by the Profile Service.");

            String[] deploymentNames;
            try {
                deploymentNames = DeploymentUtils.deployArchive(deploymentManager, archiveFile, deployExploded);
            } finally {
                // Make sure to switch back to the 'applications' profile if we switched to the 'farm' profile above.
                if (deployFarmed) {

git commit to master 951ddce

Comment 17 Larry O'Leary 2012-05-18 14:34:48 UTC
Mazz, I am reassigning this to you as it fails due to package names not matching. It appears this might be related to the content version hash that is auto-generated and ends up in the file's name.

Comment 18 Charles Crouch 2012-05-22 01:42:53 UTC
Setting Assigned To correctly

Comment 19 Stefan Negrea 2012-05-23 15:22:45 UTC
The AS5 deployer uses the file name as-is to determine the name of the app to be updated/deployed. Instead of adding the random UUID to the archive to be deployed, add the random UUID to a temp folder name and then download content there (leaving the file name unchanged). This issue has been fixed for both farmed and non-farmed deployments.

Another update was to switch to the farm version of the AS5 deployer prior to stopping and deleting existing content. The switch to a farm deployer was happening too late (prior to deployment) and was not stopping and removing the farmed application prior to the new deployment.

Comment 21 Charles Crouch 2012-06-18 21:25:35 UTC
(4:21:56 PM) ccrouch: ips: how come you set the Target Release of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=646631 to be RHQ4.3?
(4:22:19 PM) ccrouch: i think it should be 4.5, given stefan_n's commits https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=646631#c19
(4:24:40 PM) ips: yeah, you're right, i misread the date on his commits
(4:25:05 PM) ccrouch: ok, i'll reset it

Comment 22 JBoss JIRA Server 2012-06-18 21:42:00 UTC
Ian Springer <ian.springer@redhat.com> made a comment on jira EMBJOPR-366

I tried cherry-picking the three commits for bug 646631 to the AdminConsole_EAP_5_1 branch. Mazz's commit merged cleanly, but Stefan's two commits had a lot of conflicts, due to so much time passing since AdminConsole_EAP_5_1 was forked. To fix this, we'll either need to manually fix all those conflicts or upgrade the version of RHQ used by the AdminConsole_EAP_5_1 EmbJopr branch to 4.4 or 4.5.

Cherry-picked the two commits to AdminConsole_EAP_5_1. I only merged changes relevant to farmed deployments.
