MKS 0.7.3 looking for pre release testers :)

I'd like to release the next version of the MKS plugin next week if possible, and even though I use it everyday, I'd feel more comfortable if other people would test it also in different configurations.

This version will be released for IDEA 7.0.3 and current EAP (currently built against 8823), is anyone interested in testing it ?

Hello Thibaut,

Bien sûr! We just upgraded to MKS 2007 a few weeks ago, and all my colleagues suffer from the quirks of the new MKS plugin for eclipse :)
So far your plugin has been a real pleasure to work with. Does the version include the fixes to issues 41 and 46 that had been fixed for Selena already?

Regards,
Jens

Thanks,

I've uploaded the plugin here
For IDEA 7 : http://code.google.com/p/ideamksplugin/source/browse/0.7.3-RC1/IDEA-7/mks-idea-dist.zip
For IDEA-8 : http://code.google.com/p/ideamksplugin/source/browse/0.7.3-RC1/IDEA-8/mks-idea-dist.zip

Please let me know if you encounter any problem

edit : issues 41 and 46 should have been solved in 0.7.2 already, didn't that work ?

I must admit I didn't try it with IDEA 7, and as fas as I am aware, there was no 0.7.2 build for IDEA 8, right?

As far as the new RC build is concerned, I can use to commands that bring up the Member Differences, the Member History (MKS window), Resynchronize, Checkout etc., but if I try the command "Show history" or "Check File Status...", nothing happens; not even an error message.
However, when looking at the IDEA log file, I see that it is full with warning messages such as


(line wrapping and path obscuration by me) that repeat every 10 seconds for every currently open editor. Is that anything to be worried about?
BTW, I use IDEA 8769.

Regards,
Jens

I didn't release the plugin for IDEA 8 yet, you're right, I plan on releasing this new version for it though.

THe warning message is actually a debug one, allowing to see which commands the plugin issues to the MKS Command line interface.

The viewsandbox command that keep popping up are IDEA refreshing the current version of the file you asked history for I believe.
I'm surprised that it asks this if it fails to display the history though.

What you should see in the log is something like this

2008-10-02 12:48:31,554 WARN - istory.MksVcsHistoryProvider$2 - executing si viewsandbox --batch --fields=locker,workingrev,workingcpid,deferred,ty
pe,name,memberrev,locksandbox recurse "sandbox=$$CLOSEST SUBSANDBOX FOR YOUR FILE.pj$$" --filter=file:$$RELATIVE PATH OF YOUR FILE RELATED TO THE SANDBOX BEFORE$$
2008-10-02 12:48:31,664 WARN - mands.ViewMemberHistoryCommand - executing si viewhistory --batch --fields=revision,date,author,cpid,description $$ FULL PATH OF YOUR FILE$$

can you see the si viewhistory command ? if not, when you execute the si viewsandbox (associated with the MksVcsHistoryProvider$2 logger) what's displayed ?

BTW The "Show history" command should display the history in IDEA "Version Control" tool panel.

I'm personnaly using 8823, can you try with this one ? the VCS portion of the OpenApi has had a number of changes in IDEA 8 EAP

Hello Thibaut,

it took me a while, but now I'm on build 8823, too.

Unfortunately, I still cannot see the viewhistory window or the file status. I do get the two si command in the log file plus one saying "si servers --batch" and one saying "si viewcps --batch --fields=id,user,state,summary --hostname ..."

Too bad; I used to be able to see at least the viewhistory window (but that was a long time ago with Selena (and a different MKS)).

Best regards,
Jens

Jens, can you try executing the commands (in a command shell) that get written in the idea.log when you try to show history ?

The ones that get logged using MksVcsHistoryProvider$2 and ViewMemberHistoryCommand categories.

the "si viewsandbox --batch --fields=locker,workingrev,workingcpid,deferred,type,name,memberrev,locksandbox recurse "sandbox=$$CLOSEST SUBSANDBOX FOR YOUR FILE.pj$$" --filter=file:$$RELATIVE PATH OF YOUR FILE RELATED TO THE SANDBOX BEFORE$$" should list your file, with it's current revision

the "si viewhistory --batch --fields=revision,date,author,cpid,description $$ FULL PATH OF YOUR FILE$$" should list all mks controlled revisions of your file.

As we don't have MKS 2007 here I'm not sure where the issue comes from.

Okay, files with results are being sent to you directly (as they contain confidential information).
