Image Use Instructions
In pier configuration click on 'Magma Control Panel', which will inform
you that the repository does not exist. If you have placed this image on
seasidehosting then you will have to manually create the repository
directory. Given the list of options as to what repository to create,
click the 'create' button (and wait). The existing pier kernel should
appear in the list with a 'persist' button next to it, click 'persist'.
Then try it and see!
Detailed Log of Image Creation Steps (alternative title: "monticello
This image was prepared as follows:
Beginning with Squeak3.8-6555full
Initial start asks for updates: select "do not ask again" - this is
important should you wish to deploy. Headless servers (e.g.
seasidehosting) cannot handle user interaction and will stop at this point.
From "world menu > open.... > Monticello Browser"
Browser opens with (Monticello....)
Click the "+Repository Button", select "HTTP" as the repository type,
as the repository info (if you have a login on Squeaksource then you can
enter your initials
as the 'user' above.)
Add the following repository for Monticello.
Add the following repository for Magma.
and the following two repositories for Magritte and Pier
(to edit this information:
click the menu button in the right hand pane of the Monticello Browser)
Loading Latest Monticello.
More recent versions of Monticello provide better feedback as to which
packages are currently loaded.
Select the http://www.squeaksource.com/Monticello repository, click
"open", select the latest package (Monticello-avi.279) from the main
"Monticello" branch, and click "load".
Select the Monticello package on the left hand pane, and the
squeaksource/Monticello repository in the right hand pane. Click 'open'.
In the repository browser, click on the latest version
(Monticello-avi.279.mcz) and click 'Load'.
Select "world menu > open... SqueakMap"... and a dialog will ask if you
wish to upgrade SqueakMap. Which you do. Notice that SMBase, SMLoader
packages appeaer in the Monticello browser, since the upgrade is
performed by loading Monticello packages.
In SqueakMap, select the ever so convenient "Seaside Installer" which
should load in the whole of seaside with its dependencies in one go. To
do this select the left had pane menu button, "install". (Part way
through the install you will be prompted to enter an admin username
(seaside) and password (admin))
(if SqueakMap doesnt work it is being knobbled by a more recent
package-cache, remove it and try again)
Select the seaside repositoryClick the "open" and the repository browser
Select Seaside2.6b1 which is the current latest. In the right hand pane
are the releases. Releases may be made by anyone and they may be small
branches off from the main stream. Periodically an effort will be made
to ensure that all changes are merged. Click the history button in order
to browse the history of this package to get some idea of what is going
on. Look at the ancestors of a package to see if one version is being
sequentially built on the next, or whether any branching is occurring.
Seaside is fairly mature and changes infrequent, therefore it is likely
to be safe to grab the latest version.
To start Seaside doit:
WAKom startOn: 8080.
( Or use the "beach flags" SeasideMorph
available from: http://minnow.cc.gatech.edu/squeak/5862 )
To test if everything is running, check the following url in your normal
you should be prompted for you username and password (as given earlier).
Back to the Monticello Browser. Deselect the selected package by
clicking on it once. This should re-reveal all of the registered
(It is worth saving this. In the right hand side pane menu button there
is a menu item: "Save Repositories", which writes a simple configuration
script to the working directory.)
Select the http://www.squeaksource.com/MagmaTester repository, and click
Select MagmaServerLoader, and click "load". (it takes a while!)

I am building a form that consists of two components, e.g. House and
Person. For each of these, when a new one is created I register it.
I have a manager class that displays these using:
classes: (Array with: House);
accessor: (MASelectorAccessor new
default: Array new;
People is similar. The Manager class is a form, but with no buttons
as it is only needed to let the add buttons work on these relation
descriptions. The accessor shown here, houses just calls "House
instances" to get currently registered houses. I subclass
MACheckedMemento and create a custom memento that simply overrides the
#push: method to see if the object is new (no members will be set) and
if so, registers the object after called "super push:".
Everything is fine except for Houses, after I create a new hause the
main display always shows 2. If I leave the page and visit new I see
only one. I have looked around but I dont see how this is happening.
I have a problem in moose.unibe.ch with Pier. After a while the links
lead to localhost instead of moose.unibe.ch.
How can this be fixed?
I have to say that we are using Apache 1.3, so there is no Apache

"Every successful trip needs a suitable vehicle."
snapshot appears to be checking to see if it has been forked by the OS
and then in the image about to be saved it
is clearing all of the handlers.
But I cant see where this forking actually takes place so it appears to
me that all users get logged off every hour. Am I missing somthing?

Finally worked out how to call a PRWidget and make sure it is wrapped in
the current PRContext when NOT in a pier application. (i.e. the
I made a PRCurrentContextDecoration to wrap widgets in when you want to
use PRWidgets in a different content.
I've got a problem witch Pier.
I created an application with Seaside. And I want to add
the application in Pier.
I wrote in Edit mode +application+, than I clicked on it
and select type: Component. Exactly like on this video: http://www.lukas-renggli.ch/smalltalk/pier/videos/sushi.mov
But in combobox Component class
i don't see my seaside application. What is the way to put my application in this list and then
Thank You very much!!
I was wondering if anyone tried to do any kind of XML mapping using
Magritte. I have the requirement to generate RDF from my business
objects, so I was thinking of ways to simplify this. My idea was to
add something in the Magritte descriptions for each object that
pointed to the appropriate URI and schema.
This may be more trouble than its worth. I suppose anyone who has done
anything with generating XML from Magritte could maybe provide some
insight on any hurdles they faced, design ideas, etc.
I also am looking at Magritte for simplifying XML serialization in
general. My problem overall is that I have to generate all these
formats (XML for web service, RSS, ATOM, RDF) and I do not want to
have to write a complex parser to even do this 1/2 way dynamically.
Are there any other libraries out there that do this already? For
instance, I did notice that there is that library (name escapes me)
that lets you port your objects between Smalltalk versions by dumping
to XML files, so that is somewhat close to what I need to do.
I am thinking since I already have a large number of Magritte
descriptions, I might as well expand upon that. This will also let me
do things like change a schema dynamically and provide easy access
memento objects to do things like create a preview of whatever format
I am trying to produce. Thoughts?
I came accross a situation in which an MAValidationError was raised
having a tag = nil.
Exception returns messageText from #tag in this case which being a
string does not respond to #label.
^ self tag label ifNil: [ self tag asString ]
Haven't tried anything with 3.10. I'm using SIXX 0.2c with 2.9.
