Aggregate 1.0 Alpha 3 release for Google App Engine download now available

Hi everyone. I've just posted a zip for the Google AppEngine installer of
the Alpha 3 release of ODK Aggregate v1.0.

"Alpha" releases are not code complete. DO NOT USE THIS FOR PRODUCTION.

*Kick the tires, help us by testing and stressing it, and let us know what
you find broken.

··· * The zip is for installing to Google AppEngine. A Windows MySQL installer will appear with the alpha 4 next week.

Divergences from Aggregate 0.9.x:

  • stricter requirements on form ids defined using "xmlns" to conform to URN
    format (e.g., "http://your.domain.org/formId"). If you get an error
    complaining about the form id, change to use id="yourFormId" instead of
    xmlns="yourFormId"

  • stricter requirements for typing of the data fields. All data fields are
    now strongly typed. If a field is not typed (via ), the form will not load. The eIMCI form, for example, needed
    several dozen type declarations added before it could be uploaded to the
    server.

Missing features:

  • MySQL table locks, tasking and watchdog.
  • authentication and authorization
  • briefcase (so don't put production data into it and expect to be able to
    get anything out!)

To clarify a few things about the Alpha 3 release of ODK Aggregate v1.0:

  1. You will need to go to the downloads page
    http://code.google.com/p/opendatakit/downloads/ to get the zip file
    that icludes the installer as we don't want people exploring ODK to
    use a barely tested version. Therefore the zip won't show up on the
    front page of the ODK website to limit it's exposure.
  2. We are asking that people kick the tires and test out Aggregate-1.x
    alpha 3 and file an issue about any problems they find. While we will
    be testing the software we won't be able to test every use case so we
    are asking developers to help us out and act as a tester and find what
    isn't working for their specific use case. The issues website can be
    found at http://code.google.com/p/opendatakit/issues/list.
  3. It's only through our customers suggestions that this project gets
    better so please test this trial version out and file an issue about
    things you don't like.

Cheers,
Waylon.

Hi,

I am new to ODK Aggregate - new setup one yet.

Double-clicking aggregate-gae-deploy-1.0.jar does not work in Linux?
I like to local install it.
I could not find the "launchAggregateTestServer.sh".

[1] ~~~~~~~
Installing a Local Instance¶

  1. Download ODK Aggregate vN.N and unzip it.
  2. If you are using Windows, run "launchAggregateTestServer.cmd".
    Mac users should run "launchAggregateTestServer.app" and Linux users
    should run "launchAggregateTestServer.sh".
  3. A local version of ODK Aggregate is now available. Go to
    http://localhost:8080 in your web browser.

Any hint how to install and ODK Aggregate 1.0 Alpha 3 release with PostgreSL?

Thanks,

Noli

Note that the installer installs to the Google cloud, not to a local
instance. This is different than the old launchAggregateTestServer.sh
script.

Do you have Java 1.6 installed? And is the "java" command in your PATH?

If that is not the issue, then you may need to run this manually from a
command prompt. To do that, you would type:

java -jar aggregate-gae-deploy-1.0.jar

From the directory containing that jar file. This executable jar file
replaces the launch scripts from the 0.9x release.

Thanks for the bug report! The issue is fixed in the current code tip.

I'm aiming to get an Alpha 5 out this week as I work through a few
cross-platform compatibility issues between the GAE hosting and Tomcat.

There has been significant clean-up in Alpha 5 since the earlier releases.
The tip of the code tree now supports HTTPS and Basic and Digest Auth,
though there is no working version of ODK Collect that can talk to it with
those features enabled.
