Each change is performed in a separated GIT branch. For development of the project we use Standard GIT Workflow. Similar one is used, for example, for GNU/Linux development.
The main idea is that merging is only happening 'downstream', i.e. from the main branch to secondary branches, in order to get to the actual state. Main branch has linear structure as all changes are incorporated via 'patches'. Secondary branches can be then deleted, as all the aggregated information from secondary branches will be present in the main branch.
master is a main project branch and is used for builds.
Each change should be related to a BGERP process with PROCESS_ID, used for all information exchange for a given change.
For each change create a separate GIT branch based on master. Branch’s name should start from p<PROCESS_ID>, then use "-" as delimiters. Example: p11788-link-filter-title
When developing, you can use any commit strategy within a branch: intermediate commits, reverts and resets. We would recommend to push intermediate commits, using GIT repository as a backup copy.
Main branch can be periodically merged to the change branch in order to synchronize with the actual state.
Branch has to add build/change.<PROCESS_ID>.txt file, create it by running
./gradlew touchChanges. This file has to describe new functions, fixes or other changes - each item on a separate row. Format is identical to changes.txt, which accumulates all build/change.<PROCESS_ID>.txt information when release update gets published.
All the necessary documentation changes are done in the branch after the code changes.
Request branch acceptance to master once development and testing completes for a given change by moving BGERP process into Acceptance status.
Process gets closed after check/acceptance, and change gets merged to master as a single commit with a comment starting with the change ID.
|Be sure that your local GIT repo is properly configured.|
All the following GIT commands have to be executed in the project’s directory.
git checkout master && git pull origin master && git checkout -b p12345-my-change-branch
git checkout p12345-my-change-branch && git add . && git commit -am "My changes" && git push
At the first push for a branch you will be asked to set an upstream branch using the command.
git push --set-upstream origin p12345-my-change-branch
For showing the current state of GIT working directory use:
Displays text-rendered GIT graph:
git log --oneline --decorate --all --graph
git checkout p12345-my-change-branch && git pull --rebase && git fetch origin master:master && git merge master
Clean all links to non-existent/deleted branches.
git remote prune origin
Clean GIT repo from unreferenced objects after.
git reflog expire --expire-unreachable=now --all && git gc --prune=now
Clean unneeded GIT LFS files.
git lfs prune
Error: Encountered 7 file(s) that should have been pointers, but weren’t Solution
Probably only these two commands are enough:
git rm .gitattributes git reset .
When change is being accepted, 'change' branch is compared with the master. So merge the latest state of master to the 'change' branch before passing a change to acceptance.
GIT commands to be used for merging change from pXXXXX-short-change-description branch to master:
git checkout pXXXXX-short-change-description && git pull git commit --allow-empty -m "MERGED" && git push git checkout master && git pull git merge --squash pXXXXX-short-change-description
Commit with current GIT user.
git commit -am "pXXXXX Some change description."
Or for preserving the author in GitHub. Mapping internal to external mails is available in file
git commit -am "pXXXXX Some change description." --author="Developer Name <email@example.com>"
And finally, push.
|Perform a separate GIT Push after each acceptance in order to correctly publish in the open repository.|
Release is published periodically from the master branch.
Long-lived branches only get changes which are not altering product functionality, for example: localization and documentation fixes, code formatting, tests. BGERP process for a change does not get closed , and acceptance is performed multiple times upon completion of specific change(s).
Plugin documentation should have the following structure:
About - common information about;
Setup - how to configure;
Usage - using instructions with screenshots;
Development - recommendation for developers.
Images like screenshots in documentation must be stored in PNG format with .png extension. This extension is configured to be stored in GIT LFS. Use width attribute for limiting size rather than resizing that can sometimes increase a file size.
Documentation changes are recommended to be done at the end of branch development, using changes file as preliminary notes. CI job test-and-publish-update builds documentation automatically for each commit or it might be built locally.
Due the strict references and snippets checking, it is quite possible to have broken state of documentation even without changes in
.adoc files. Something like the following:
2020-05-25 12:17:39,149 INFO DocGenerator [main] Processing: srcx/doc/project.adoc 2020-05-25 12:17:39,844 ERROR Snippet [main] Snippet '../../src/ru/bgcrm/struts/action/MessageAction.java' doesn't start from: 'message.se', line number: 205, content: newProcess.setDescription(message.getSubject()); 2020-05-25 12:17:39,855 ERROR Snippet [main] Snippet '../../src/ru/bgcrm/struts/action/MessageAction.java' doesn't end on: ');', line number: 71, content: if (message == null) 2020-05-25 12:17:39,859 ERROR Snippet [main] Snippet '../../src/ru/bgcrm/struts/action/MessageAction.java' doesn't start from: 'pu', line number: 241, content: 2020-05-25 12:17:39,860 ERROR Snippet [main] Snippet '../../src/ru/bgcrm/struts/action/MessageAction.java' doesn't end on: '}', line number: 253, content: 2020-05-25 12:17:39,911 ERROR Snippet [main] Snippet '../../webapps/WEB-INF/jspf/user/search/search.jsp' doesn't start from: '<div', line number: 1, content: <%@ page contentType="text/html; charset=UTF-8"%> 2020-05-25 12:17:39,911 ERROR Snippet [main] Snippet '../../webapps/WEB-INF/jspf/user/search/search.jsp' doesn't end on: '/div>', line number: 134, content: <%@ include file="/WEB-INF/jspf/shell_title.jsp"%> 2
For such cases here is the fixing algorithm. First, find the failing line in
After that, using branch comparison, find the new rows and change them in the
If documentation was already corrected in the current branch, you can create a mock branch on the last working state.
Use line numbers for searching over failing snippets.
Place human readable changes description with screens in 00000 document.
The job is executed in every change branch.
Launches Unit tests and documentation build and validity check>. If everything is wents without error then publishing <<build-change, update with documentation from the branch to https://bgerp.org/update/<PROCESS_ID>;
|All the published change updates have the same version, equal to the next release.|
The job is executed in master branch.
The job is executed in master branch.
The job is executed in master branch.
Publishes actual source code from
master into an open repository https://github.com/pingvin235/bgerp
Project is configured in Gradle format (configuration file: build.gradle)
For building and publishing, apart from Java you will need console environment with available ant, ssh and rsync packages.
| Here and below all commands are shown for WSL environment, *NIX will not need
bash -c "./gradlew clean doc"
Resulting HTML files will be present in target/doc. Internal link validation is performed automatically.
|This task is automatically run by CI.|
All the updates packages are copies to Web directory:
https://bgerp.org/update/PROCESS_ID The changes file has also copied, and all documentation links there starting from
https://bgerp.org/doc are automatically replaced to the
Users have a capability to update to the change using a PROCESS_ID as an identifier.
Build is performed from a master branch and can include many accepted changes.
|Be sure that Integration tests are successfully done on master to provide data for Demo DB.|
Perform the following:
bash -c "./gradlew resetProperties clean buildClean buildUpdateLib buildUpdate"
Build a Docker Image:
bash build/docker/files.sh && docker build build/docker -t bgerp/bgerp && docker push bgerp/bgerp
bash -c "./gradlew patchChanges rss publishBuild publishCommit"
Check the release commit and make:
Merge the latest state of the master on documentation branch:
git checkout p11862-documentation && git pull --rebase && git merge master && git push
Pick documentation changes back to master, probably will be an empty commit.
git checkout master && git pull --rebase && git merge --squash p11862-documentation && git commit -am "p11862 Documentation." && git push
Document with current changes 00000 has to be copied to a new one.
Check if the current version and documentation time are updated on Web site. Add a news to the site link to the changes documentation.
|In case of bugfix releases already existing changes document may be renamed, now news is needed.|
JUnit framework is used (`srcx/test' directory) Used to test specific algorithms, test do not depend on each other and do not work with DB.
Test are launched locally using the following command:
bash -c "./gradlew clean test"
TestNG framework is used (`srcx/itest' directory)
Integration test performs initialization an empty DB and filling after it with configuration. Tests form a dependencies graph which defined order and execution parallelism.
By default the tests uses MySQL instance with credentials taken from
bgerp.properties file. For local run use Docker DB Instance for that.
Additionally to the recommended MySQL configuration, check and set in
That will significantly increase table creation speed. After the first successful run, the structure of a DB will remain persistent and re-created faster by this way.
