Duplicate loading of applications in XP7


#1

Enonic version: 7.2.1
OS: Windows 10

Hi ya,

I’m using gradle deploy to build my apps, this creates a jar-file and puts in the /$XP_HOME/deploy folder. After I while this app had many updates and newer releases, it ended up with something like 10+ different jar-files for the same app inside the deploy folder. After installing a “hello world boot kitten” in the main.js of this app I can see this kitten being initiated for each jar-file. This cannot be optimal way of booting apps? To me it looks like every version of the same app is being installed and started, until the newest one takes precedence. But there’s no reason at all to install or start the old apps, it could even lead to some very hard to debug problems.

Here, see the hello world boot kitten in action using two numbered versions of the same app at the start of XP7. One kitten comes from 1.0.5-SNAPSHOT the other from 1.0.6-SNAPSHOT. Before reporting this I had 10 different versions of the app, all of them being installed and their main.js being executed.

We use a simple gradle script to strip the version number from the jar file. We add this to run after the deploy task in our projects.

    doLast {
        copy {
            from "build/libs/${projectName}-${version}.jar"
            into "${deployDir}"
            rename ("${projectName}-${version}.jar", "${projectName}.jar")
        }
    }

Thx Daniel, nice idea, that would mitigate the problem.

I now have five cats btw! Which is weird, since I only have 4 jar-files of the same app in that deploy-folder.
