Sandbox implementation and organization 11 Years, 9 Months ago Karma: 2  
We have been having some of this discussion on email, but I think it rightfully belongs here so the entire community can follow and contribute to the discussion. Here is some of the email thread:

I can agree with that - but then there needs to be a “general” project for functoids and extensions (for the few dozen we have now and should add to) which can be used on any project (getTimestamp(), getfilename(), copyfile(), validatedate(), truncatestring(), formatMoney(), DeleteElement, SetText, Optional, etc.) or do we create a “Date” project, a “File” project, a “StringUtil” project, a “Format” project, etc..?

I think the top level organization needs to be functional groupings, not based on the type of component. For example, the EDIFACT stuff would be a separate subproject, which may include functoids, extensions, bizview files, etc.

Jeff,

Certainly, I wasn’t just thinking of code. I would think if someone has some BizDoc’s they would setup a project that contains those. Perhaps what you are suggesting though is to organize the subprojects based on whether they are a set of bizview files, an extension, functoids, bizcomps or wizards? I think that is a good idea to make it easier for someone to search.

Hi Tim,

Sounds great. Do you think we could have a subproject to share BizDocuments and extensions with the community?

Another thought on this is that I would like to make sure we are all working off of the same definition of Sandbox. To me it means the following:

1. We provide a shared location where people can own a project and store the files for it.
2. A forum can be produced for that project.
3. A listing and description about that project (a simple home page maybe) is provided
4. In general we do not “build” the project in our automated process, a build script (ANT or Maven) is provided by the project owner and someone has to download it and build it themselves, alternatively we provide a download location where they can put their artifacts. Some projects may be pulled into our build (i.e. Salesforce)

Seems like a good use for a hive... The hive can be public so all interested parties can participate.

I don't like the idea of a separate project and forum on SourceForge but there's also nothing preventing him from doing it if that's what he wants...

Is this covered under some existing Atos license or are they going to subscribe and become a conversion?

I think, in order to avoid confusion and present the most useful environment to the community, that it would be best to keep one forums. We can create a forum there for Sandbox projects. But I do like the idea of using SF CVS to host Sandbox project code. Does it also support separate and fine grained issue tracking? Is this something we could set up quickly to satisfy danga’s need for his EDIFACT project?

I have been doing research on sourceforge’s CVS capability, which is code management utility. We us the SVN capability for our main code base and the reason that we cannot use this for the sandbox is that we are not able to have fine-grained control over write access to specific areas in the repository. However, we are able to do the fine-grained access in CVS. We could go ahead and use our project’s forum’s and CVS repository to host the sandbox area. I don’t know if this would be confusing to people if they wanted to post to a forum about our main product though. The advantage to this is that we would then capture all sandbox activity in our project statistics thus improving our ranking on Sourceforge.

He also says:

We are now ready to start developing a solution for EDIFACT transformation.

I would like to ask people that would like to participate in realizing a generic approach / solution for EDIFACT to let me know. Please reply to this post.

I have been waiting for the SANDBOX but since it is still not there I am considering setting up a project under Sourceforge or elsewhere to support the development of an XAWARE EDIFACT Transformation Project .

Anyone interested in joining us let me know.


So, this is good, but we might want to discourage him from setting up his own project on Sourceforge by providing a better alternative. What should we try do to here?
