Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache OpenMeetings Drupal Plugin 1.0 Incubating Release Candidate 1
Date Thu, 13 Sep 2012 08:08:19 GMT
Hi Upayavira,

the Drupal plugin relys on PHP API function. You need to implement
certain given PHP API calls. Pure JavaScript is not possible.

To be more specific: Drupal requires the plugin to provide certain
methods. Drupal expect a file "openmeetings.module"
and within that file it expects the methods:
function openmeetings_permission() {}
function openmeetings_menu() {}
function openmeetings_start_form($form_state, $node) {}
function openmeetings_cleanup() {}
Also it epxects a file: "openmeetings.install"
function openmeetings_enable() {}
function openmeetings_schema() {}
function openmeetings_uninstall() {}
function openmeetings_install() {}
And a file "", that includes some version variables

I guess you can compare that to an overwrite in a given Java Class
that you implement.
Those are the hooks that are needed to integrate into Drupal, apart
from this there is no Drupal specific code in the plugin. The other
scripts could be also used (and are actually also used) in other
plugins and integrations.

I don't want to create a "claim" here. If the request raises too many
concerns we will simply move it to Although it
would be better if we could maintain those plugins within the ASF and
contributors have the chance to become full members of our project.
Also I don't understand in what sense implementing an API
automatically requires all code to apply a certain License.

Somehow those issues just prevent progress. Maybe we should wait until
the Incubator/Board meeting at the 19th takes place?
