LDAP & the Admin/XWiki user

kenk-3
Hi,

I'm using v0.9.840 with j2sdk-1.4.2_06 authenticating against OpenLDAP.  It works but for the known problem where "Login of local XWiki user (not in LDAP) doesn't work when LDAP auth used" [bug, key: XWIKI-72];  So, I'd like to try the code patch provided on that jira page.

However, I'm just an admin and tho I installed ant and downloaded the xwiki source code (and placed that .diff patch next to its target), I didn't get very far out the door:

[no@nowhere xwikisrc]$ ant -debug
Buildfile: build.xml
 
BUILD FAILED
/home/no/xwikisrc/build.xml:126: taskdef A class needed by class org.apache.cactus.integration.ant.CactusTask cannot be found: junit/framework/Test


I read-up on this and figure that I need junit and maybe to learn ant, but at this point I must ask:

if I start using this patched version will I go down an un-upgradable branch of code and hose my content when I upgrade next?

can I just switch out the existing LDAPAuthServiceImpl.class in my xwiki install with a patched version without having to rebuild the whole app?

and, can anyone point me to an XWIKI-72-patched version of that class b/c I see that merely javac'ing the LDAPAuthServiceImpl.java file doesn't work (cannot resolve symbol errors :)


...if the answer to all of these is "no" I'll just keep trying to build from source, so not too much hand holding needed.

thanks for your help,
Ken

Re: LDAP & the Admin/XWiki user

update:  I was able to build from source after placing my junit jar into $ANTHOME/lib, as described in your dev guide.

So now this is my only question:

> of code and hose my content when I upgrade next?

I ask b/c I don't think I see this code in svn HEAD.  Maybe I'm off-base tho.

thanks!
Ken
