Feature Requests for the OSS Developer

Postby Kahuna » Thu Jul 15, 2010 1:39 pm

Hi Folks

How does one make feature requests for the OSS development on Servoy Developer. I was under the impression that it was through ServoyForge now but cant find a route to post the request??

My request is to have a start-up switch to allow the use of several different Servoy.Properties files in developer start-up.

I know this has been requested before directly to Servoy but I figured since there is now a OS developer community they would be the ones to target this. Am I wrong or did I miss a link somewhere?

Hi Ian,

this is already possible, but you have to define the shortcut yourself.
I use the shortcut as below, which also can point to a specific workspace.

C:\Servoy_All\Servoy_5\developer\servoy.exe -data "C:\Servoy_All\Workspaces\5.0.0_dev" -vmargs -Xms40m -Xmx700m -XX:MaxPermSize=256M -Dproperty-file=servoy.properties.local

Hope this helps.

Very cool - thanks Marc :D
I take it you just then have servoy.properties.local or servoy.properties.dev as separate properties files for each short-cut etc?

Yep, indeed!

What I didn't mention is the -vmargs etc arguments.
These do change the settings of memory usage.
You might want to change those accordingly to your current settings as I'm almost sure you can't leave them out of this shortcut...

Hi Ian,

I see that Marc already answere. But in general, to post a feature request on ServoyForge, you can either
1/ create an issue on the ServoyForge (the website) project: http://www.servoyforge.net/projects/servoyforge/issues/new
2/ open a discussion on the ServoyForge forum http://www.servoyforge.net/projects/servoyforge/boards
3/ do what you did here: start a discussion on the Servoy forum, and if we think it's an idea that OSS developers could have a go at, we will direct you to create an issue on ServoyForge anyway...

Cheers,
-Patrick

Note that memory settings are specified by default in servoy.ini via the vmargs option, but if you add a single VM argument (-vmargs) on the command line,
*all* vmargs specified in servoy.ini will be ignored.
