Sergiu Dumitriu 6.4 72 == The Velocity engine was updated to version 1.7 ==
Sergiu Dumitriu 6.2 73
Marius Dumitru Florea 4.1 74 {{warning}}
Sergiu Dumitriu 6.2 75 We upgraded Velocity to version 1.7 which brings several changes that are not backwards compatible.
Marius Dumitru Florea 5.1 76 {{/warning}}
77
Sergiu Dumitriu 6.2 78 We had to fix the following problems on the velocity code bundled with XWiki Enteprise:
79
80 * Escape quotes in interpolated strings (both ' and ") by doubling them ('' and "") (See [[VELOCITY-555>>https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VELOCITY-555]])

83 * [[XE-806>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XE-806]]: Upgrade activity macro to work with velocity 1.7
Sergiu Dumitriu 6.2 84
85 === Macro evaluation strategy ===
86
87 The main change is that Velocity 1.7 changed the way macro evaluations work. While before it was more flexible with many possible outcomes depending on what parameters were passed, and how they were used inside the macro, the current version simplified a lot the internal logic of variable assignments inside macros, which resulted in a critical regression for us. The same change was introduced between 1.6.0 and 1.6.1, but was reverted in 1.6.2 when we notified them of the regression, with the decision to go further with the change in 1.7.
88
89 To better understand the kind of code that doesn't work, take this example:
90
91 {{code language="none}}
92 #macro(callBySharing $x)
93 #set($x = 'a')
94 #end
95 #set($y = 'y')
96 #callBySharing($y)
97
98 $y -> 'y' in 1.7
99 $y -> 'a' in 1.6.2, 1.6.0 and before)
100 {{/code}}
101
102 But:
103
104 {{code language="none"}}
105 #set($x = 'x')
106 #callBySharing($x)
107
108 $x -> 'a' in all versions
109 {{/code}}
110
111 This means that only macros that are supposed to assign and return a value in one of its formal parameters will stop working, and only when the formal and actual parameters have different names. Macros with signatures like:
112
113 {{code language="none"}}
114 #macro(computeSomething $fromValue1 $fromValue2 $putResultHere)
115 {{/code}}
116
117 The only macro in the global ##macros.vm## that was broken by this change was ###setVariableFromRequest##, which is already fixed in the released version.
118
119 Now there's also a generic ###setVariable ("variableName" $value)## macro which can be used to emulate the call by sharing behavior in custom macros. How to use it:
120
121 Suppose you had a macro like this:
122
123
124 {{code language="none"}}
125 #macro(isBlogGlobal $blogDoc $isGlobal)
126 #set($isGlobal = false)
127 #getBlogProperty($blogDoc 'blogType' '' $discard)
128 #if($discard == 'global')
129 #set($isGlobal = true)
130 #end
131 #end
132 {{/code}}
133
134 Here ##$isGlobal## is the output variable which now doesn't always work. The updated version of the macro can be written as:
135
136 {{code language="none"}}
137 #macro(isBlogGlobal $blogDoc $isGlobal)
138 #set ($result = false)
139 #getBlogProperty($blogDoc 'blogType' '' $discard)
140 #if($discard == 'global')
141 #set($result = true)
142 #end
143 #set ($isGlobal = $util.null)
144 #setVariable ("$isGlobal" $result)
145 #end
146 {{/code}}
147
148 Pay attention to the last two lines in the macro.
149
150 In Velocity, when rendering ##$variable##, where ##$variable## is ##undefined## or ##null##, will cause the variable name to be printed instead. As it happens, when inside a macro, what gets printed is the name of the actual parameter (the one passed in the macro call), and not the formal one (the one declared in the macro definition). So, whenever ##$isGlobal## is rendered as a string, the name of the actual parameter is obtained.
151
152 ###set ($isGlobal = $util.null)## will make sure that no matter what the previous value of the variable was, ##$isGlobal## will be ##null## from this point forward, and ##"$isGlobal"## will output the name of the actual parameter.
153
154 When calling ###setVariable ("$isGlobal" $result)##, the first parameter will contain the name of the actual parameter used when calling ###isBlogGlobal##.
155
156 Inside the ###setVariable## macro, the wanted variable is assigned using ###evaluate##.
157
158 === Quotes and apostrophes inside strings ===
159
160 The second change is the escape syntax used inside strings for quotes and apostrophes. While before this used to work:
161
162 {{code language="none"}}
163 {{velocity}}
164 #set ($a = "He said \"maybe\"")
165 $a => He said \"maybe\"
166 {{/velocity}}
167 {{/code}}
168
169 now this snippet would throw an exception. Trying to escape an apostrophe inside an apostrophe-delimited string would have failed even before.
170
171 In Velocity 1.7 it is possible to place both single and double quotes inside a string, by doubling that character. For example:
172
173 {{code language="none"}}
174 {{velocity}}
175 #set ($a = "He said ""maybe""")
176 $a => He said "maybe"
177
178 #set ($b = 'that''s funny')
179 $b => that's funny
180 {{/velocity}}
181 {{/code}}

Marius Dumitru Florea 6.1 183 == General Notes ==
184
Marius Dumitru Florea 5.1 185 {{warning}}
Marius Dumitru Florea 4.1 186 If you're running in a multiwiki setup you'll also need to define the property //xwiki.store.migration.databases=all// to your //xwiki.cfg// file or explicitly name all databases to be migrated as in //xwiki.store.migration.databases=db1,db2,...//.
187 {{/warning}}
188
189 You may also want to [[import the default wiki XAR>>Main.Download]] in order to benefit from the improvements listed above.
190
191 {{warning}}
192 Always make sure you compare your //xwiki.cfg// file with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Note you should add //xwiki.store.migration=1// so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
