Today, I was cleaning up the code, trying to get the report page work
again. Got it working finally :) The report wizard consists of two
pages, the first one allows to choose the module, and the second is for
entering details. One thing I don’t like that much is that I have to
API::getClass('Bug'); in order to call
Bug::createNew(), but I
don’t think there is a much cleaner or better solution (moving static
code from the bug class into a bug module would just cause confusion).
A quick, updated roadmap for the next week:
- Get the broken code working again - mainly, bug edit should work
- Finish merging project and module overviews into a new, unified overview page
- Add project/module administration
- Fix up the base/child JScript select code
- A tabbed menu system
The long term roadmap includes:
- Notification system
- Rights managment
- Statistics module
- Support for several languages
Hopefully I’ll be able to finish those next week, as I plan to stop active development on the bugtracker in two weeks. I’ll keep on fixing bugs, but I’m going to focus on my 3D engine.
Bugtracker on SVN
The complete bugtracker source code is now in a dedicated Subversion repository. Later, I’m gonna open this repository for a friend so he can keep on maintaining the bugtracker while I’m working on the 3D engine.
ADOdb & custom error handler
After adding a custom error handler to my bugtracker, the ADOdb library didn’t work properly any longer - debug output caused a script error. All other functions worked right. This was with ADOdb 4.4x, today, I upgraded to the latest (4.54) and it stopped working at all. Fortunately, I found a solution: I include ADOdb before setting up my error handler. This seems to work fine so far, no errors while including ADOdb, and yet it does call my custom handler when an error occurs later.
