Description Jay Shaughnessy 2011-11-29 17:43:07 EST
Minimally the following types in the AS-5 plugin have
plugin config properties that are unset:

  Embedded WAR

This is bad because when you navigate to the plugin config
you are immediately in error, the config editor demanding
values for the fields which you can not edit.  Although not
probable, it would make it impossible to actually edit and
save the plugin config.

The unset properties should be set at discovery or removed from
the plugin descriptor. The latter is probably ok since they
seem unused.
Comment 1 Jay Shaughnessy 2012-01-16 13:04:28 EST
Each unset property pretty much needs to be reviewed on a case-by-case
basis.  The offending properties re-occur in several components and
are one of:


  From what I can see an attempt is made in discovery to set this WAR
  property.  The context path is determined by calling the profile service
  for "contextRoot".  But it either doesn't work at all, or, if the
  app is stopped, is doc'd to return null.

  I don't think the property value is actually used anywhere in the
  plugin code, so not getting set seems to not be a problem, other than
  in the way described in this BZ.  The property could probably be removed
  but instead I'll just remove the read-only setting.


  From what I can see this property is never set/discovered on any of the
  several types on which it is declared.  Moreover, it seems it is never
  referenced in the plugin code.  As such, I'm removing all occurrences 
  of the property.

Actually, mean to say, set contextPath required="false" in addition to
Comment 3 Jay Shaughnessy 2012-01-16 14:15:04 EST
master commit 13546f899490b333b4527ce963d1b39b3a097153

required/read-only contextPath and filename props were not being set
[reliably] at discovery time.  Removed filename props, which did not seem
to be used by the plugin.  Set contextPath props to required="false".
The value does not seem to be used by the plugin but the property is
at least defined in the code.

Test Notes
Import an EAP5 with deployed EAR/War/Embedded WAR and anything else you
see fit.  In the GUI visit connection settings for one of each type
of resource in its hierarchy. Ensure the config editor does not complain
when rendering the config.
Comment 4 Heiko W. Rupp 2013-09-01 05:58:14 EDT
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.
