[Gnumed-devel] oscar fiddling

after some fiddling , got the cvs oscar to work on my debian testing system.

used the tomcat5 package in debian, but using the sun jdk .

have to export the JAVA_HOME variable for the sun jdk base directory, as well

as prefix the PATH environment variable as well ( export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH)

then can go to /usr/shar/tomcat5/bin and run  sh debug

this starts catalina in debug mode , so can set breakpoints in java web apps.

copy oscar_mcmaster/build/ant  to oscar_mcmaster directory ( this is the subdirectory under the cvs root directory)

and then doing ant here works straight forward,

then need to copy oscar_mcmaster/build/ war files to the /usr/shar/tomcat5/webapps/ directory,

then need to create a oscar_mcmaster mysql database and set the mysql password  by doing

as root ( this is easiest),  "mysqladmin create oscar_mcmaster" and "mysqladmin password 'rootpassword" "

finally copy as  /root/, and make sure the dbname and dbpassword

properties match the database name and root password.

 One problem was logging in , because the passwords are stored as  StringBuffer.toString() conversions of byte arrays

created from MessageDigest.getInstance("sha")  , which converts to some hyphenated number, which is then

stored in the password field of the table .

Here's a little java program that reads in a line of text and gives such a conversion, then

you can do "update security set password = '<paste in the converted password> ' in mysql , so you

can login ( but still need to enter the 1117 pin number in the third field).

The WEB-INF/struts-config.xml  file of oscar_mcmaster shows that  action forwarding is based on the forward name

attribute , but it doesn't forward to a action.Do  path, but directly to a jsp page,  which

is a little slack, because then you have to go within the jsp page to work out what's happening, instead

of working out the flow from what's in the struts-config.xml file.
