Subject RE: REPOST: Queries in Cocoon 2.1.11 not working with"AS"protocol?
Date Mon, 14 Sep 2009 14:53:28 GMT

I understand.  But, as I said before, the same application is currently
running fine on both the Windows machine and the existing Linux server.  
It is partially working on Cocoon 2.1.11 on the new Linux machine.
i.e. the app works OK except for the strange transformer result I detailed
below; the only difference I can see seems to be the Cocoon version.

Only last week I ran into such an issue where my app was running
flawlessly on my development environment but when I deployed it to the
QA environment I got following exception:

Cannot create handle for transformer "SomeTransformer.xslt" ... This was
due to the fact that my file had two capital letters and in my sitemap I
referred to "Sometransformer.xslt".  on windows this will work so you
don't spot the error in time ;-(

The same goes for (SQL) tables, columns etc.

Your queries run like a charm on windows until you deploy your app on a
unix environment.  Luckily you'll be able to spot these kinds of
mistakes quickly if you keep this in mind.  My advise is to use
consistently lowercase for your tables/columns so you'll never run into
these issues.

Thanks Robby; the production machine is running Linux and
so I had assumed it was *not* a case-problem but more related
to my Cocoon and/or MySQL upgrade - and obviously I do not 
want to upgrade the production server until its running locally...

Not sure if this is important to mention but whenever you port a cocoon
application from windows to unix... you'll bound to see exceptions....
* FileNotFoundException
* table not Found exception   

All this due to casesensitivity on unix systems...

If this is related to this problem I don't know but it's worthwile
checking the tablenames thoroughly and comparing them to your queries.

Kind regards,

(From 2008-08-27 - I'm sure someone can check this error very easily?)

I am in the process of porting my applications over from Windows to
Linux as my
development platform.

I am now running Cocoon 2.1.11 and Mysql 5.0.67 (was 2.1.8 and 4.0.23)

There is one issue I have encountered so far. When running a query of
the form:

SELECT foo AS bar from mytable

The SQLTransformer gives back:


instead of:


(I have tested the same query using the MySQL Query Browser 
and it works as expected.)

Does anyone know why this is and how I can fix it?
