How to include the driver filter in the package?


Hi,

I'm new to create packages to deliver drivers. I did not understand yet
how to add the driver filter in the package. I understand that I need to
create a Resource object with the content type of
application/vnd.novell.dirxml.filter-ext+xml but this content type is
not in the wizard list of content types. How do I add that to the list,
so it will show in the wizard?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Gustavo

In designer:

Right click the line connected the driver to the IDVault
Select New -> Resource

1. Give it a name

2. Under content type, scroll down the menu until you find
application/vnd.novell.dirxml.filter-ext+xml


3. Click OK

Alex,

That's my problem. I'm not seeing this option in the pulldown menu. Is
there a way to configure Designer to add this content type option?

You can just copy/paste the text string into the contenht-type text field

application/vnd.novell.dirxml.filter-ext+xml

Alex,

I'm using version 4.0.1 because of project requirements.

I tested to include the content type information on the wizard filed,
but i did not work.

It works fine in Designer 4.01. Is your tree set to 4.x level? Is it
set to Package Developer mode? (Not replicated to the tree, you have to
set it in the project).

Geoffrey,

You found the problem. The Designer was not set to Package Designer
mode when I was creating the Resource object. It worked perfectly.
Thanks a lot for your help.

I can confirm that this option disappears if you don't have package
developer mode set on the tree/IDV level. So it's probably that.

I'm still using Designer 4.0.1 at several customers. It works fine for
package development (if a bit of a memory hog)

4.02 is still the mem hog. I have reported more mem leaks in 4.02 with
some extra patches I was testing. We shall see if they try to fix them
for the AU1 release. Would be nice.

There is a leak in the string handler, that leaves many, many strings
behind, stranded. I had 145,000 instances of strings stranded after
10-15 minutes of testing. Ate almost 150 Megs too!

I keep trying to get them to fix that one, since it preferentially
affects large projects. (Which is how I find them, huge projects! Open
and close, open and close, does it every time)

But all the mem leaks I have managed to track down and get them to fix
are all about leaks left behind. None of those have been attempts to
make the proper usage more efficient as we use it.

I wish they would spend some time on that aspect! Cuz 32 bits is
running out of space fast!
