Description Jared MORGAN 2011-10-05 23:14:52 EDT
Description of problem:

If books have upper-case letter strings in the start of the book title, the book is being incorrectly alpha-sorted on the hosting and live docs sites.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Publican 2.8

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Navigate to
2. Click JBoss Enterprise Application Platform > 5 in the navigation tree
3. Note the order of book titles.
Actual results:

HTTP Connectors Load Balancing Guide appears *before* Hibernate guides.

RESTEasy Reference Guide appears *before* Release Notes

Expected results:

HTTP Connectors Load Balancing Guide appears *after* HornetQ User Guide

RESTEasy Reference Guide appears *after* Release Notes 5.1.1

Additional info:

This also affects docs-stage. It is not just EAP that is affected. Red Hat Enterprise Linux > 6 > DM Multipath is also out of alpha-order.

I spoke to Rudi about this, and he added the following info:

(13:03:45) rudi: Looks like Publican is sorting those titles according to Unicode codepoint

Hope this helps in fixing the issue.
Comment 1 Jeff Fearn 2011-10-10 06:44:22 EDT
Made string comparison of Product and Book Name case insensitive.

Applied to branch/publican-2x and trunk.

Committed revision 1906.

I've checked, and this issue no longer presents. I think you're good to close this off, Jeff.
