Runmodes and Configs for Fun and Profit

  1. 1. Runmodes and Configs for Fun and Profit Lightningtalks.adaptTo(Berlin, 2011) Mike PfaffFreelance [Day|Adobe] [CQ|WEM|ADEP] Consultant
  2. 2. Huh?Short Intro on how to use custom runmodestogether with sling:OsgiConfig to easilymanage different configurations andenvironments.Info based on real-world usage of thesefeatures in CQ 5.4 Sling trunk might have added features (e.g. save-back of configs)
  3. 3. RunmodesCQ - author or publish (Do NOT remove!)Multiple additional custom runmodes possibleSuggested Use Environment: local, dev, test, prod Location: berlin, basel, timbuktu Company: acme, partner, customer Special system type: importer
  4. 4. Setting runmodesVia JVM Options (recommended) Usually via CQ_JVM_OPTS in start script,dev,berlinVia Sling Properties File launchpad/,dev,berlin
  5. 5. Steps (as seen on South Park ;)sling:OsgiConfig
  6. 6. 1) sling:OsgiConfig
  7. 7. 2) Runmode-aware config
  8. 8. 3) Profit
  9. 9. Naming Config Locations /apps/adaptto/config/ All Systems, runmode-independent /apps/adaptto/ Systems with berlin runmode /apps/adaptto/ Systems with berlin AND dev runmode
  10. 10. Example - InstancesInstance Runmodes Type Environment Location #1 author dev berlin #2 author prod basel #3 author prod berlin
  11. 11. Example - ConfigsDifferent mailserver configs per location config.basel/ debugging per environment
  12. 12. Hints & Suggestions 1/2 Partial configs not supported Config with most matching runmodes wins Always set all properties to avoid confusion Use a type indicator (e.g. {Boolean}, {String}, etc.) in every property /apps wins over /libs (as always) KISS principle (“Keep it simple, stupid!”)
  13. 13. Hints & Suggestions 2/2 JCR installer keeps a digest. Thus you can’t reinstall an identical config as just before. Config for same component at and put on system with dev, berlin and author runmodes JCR installer gives them the same priority, so do this only if you want one of them randomly applied ;)
