Known Issues
  • Leading and trailing White spaces (spaces, new lines, tabs) in xml elements contained in requests can sometimes lead to undesirable/incorrect behavior. It is suggested that unnecessary/formatting white spaces SHOULD NOT be introduced either in xml requests or in the xml metadata configuration file
  • The installer may not clearly mention that tomcat restart is required before the last action it does in deploy step.
  • Jakarta Tomcat log files (catalina.out) tend to overflow (especially when LS registration is turned on). Re-routing them to /dev/null is suggested
  • XML-LS pre-installation step requires that eXist database be installed and 'initiated'. This varies from RRD MA and SQL MA services which can automatically do the installation and initiation.
  • BWCTL MP installer stores the configuration insider the perl files (except pre-install). This is not similar to the Java services
  • SQL MA could encounter problems due to user privileges. The default installation scripts for SQL tables (lightpath and utilisation) make use of '%'. Sometimes this use of '%' instead of 'localhost' or any specific service name causes the SQL database to not allow the request to continue. This can be handled on the SQL database side by changing the user's privileges to 'localhost' or the dns entry of the machine where the SQL MA is installed.
  • SQL MA - store functionality does not validate the store request thoroughly. Although proper requests succeed, improper ones could end up being stored as well
  • The collection names that need to be provided in eXist (XML database) is fixed (see default values in interactive questions section). This means that you won't be able to provide your own names to these collections.
