Eventum and its model for a Blueprint PHP Application
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Harry, thanks for the praise for Eventum. This is mainly the result of my work and Bryan Alsdorf at MySQL (http://mysql.com/eventum), even though I’m no longer with MySQL AB anymore. We do agree with you on the aspects of making the page controllers as simple as possible, and also trying to let the code be as simple as possible, but still easy to maintain and change.

For some of its technical weaknesses such as the use of HTTP_GET_VARS and etc, there is a reason for this. Eventum was initially supposed to be a commercial product, and I wanted to sell commercial licenses of this application, to be then installed at the customer’s server. I tried to make the installation process as easy as possible (and it still is one of the easiest web applications to install

dotProject integration with Eventum
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I was busy last week with meetings in Cupertino, but Adam Donnison wrote me to tell me about the work he did to provide some integration between the two systems. I personally never tried dotProject myself, but for those interested, here is the email from Adam:

It provides the backend for Eventum using Companies and Contacts
within dotProject, and provides a reciprocal view-only listing
of open issues for dotProject users.

It does require the latest CVS version of dotProject (or more
correctly the classes/query.class.php from the latest CVS) to
provide the multi-db query support.

URL is:

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=70930&package_id=159274&release_id=345568

Feedback is very much welcome!

Eventum 1.6.0 Released!

Go get it here (http://mysql.com/eventum).

A few security problems were found on previous releases, so upgrade as soon as possible.

HTTP Authentication and Microsoft IIS / PHP ISAPI module
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Eventum has a feature to provide RSS feeds of custom filters, which is basically a way to save advanced search parameters into a special URL that you can call out to check on results. Pretty useful feature, and a lot of people use that. However, we can’t simply have an open window into a potential confidential database of issues/bugs/tickets, so the RSS feed script authenticates the user with HTTP Auth, with the usual PHP way of doing things:

<?php
if (!isset($_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER'])) {
header('WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="My Realm"');
header('HTTP/1.0 401 Unauthorized');
echo 'Text to send if user hits Cancel button';
exit;
} else {
echo "Hello {$_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER']}.";
echo "You entered

Old Eventum Banner Ads
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Back when Eventum was still a commercial product of mine, I tried to create some banner ads to try to promote the product. I just found some old copies lying around on my web server:

And some vertical banners that I would use on my weblog:


  

Isn’t that adorable?

Outlook 2003 and missing Message-ID
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

So here’s the deal: Outlook 2003 doesn’t include the Message-ID header if you are sending email through a mail server other than Microsoft Exchange. There are other rants about this:

  • from Peter Pentchev
  • from Terry Frazier
  • And they both point to this priceless news bulletin, which contains this gem:

    According to Mark, Microsoft apparently had a few complaints from people using Outlook that their machine name was “leaked” in the Message-ID header. Instead of ignoring the complaint or making the host name used in the Message-ID header configurable, Microsoft chose to remove the Message-ID header.

    Technically, Outlook 2003 is still

    Eventum now on FreeBSD?s port collection
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    I had no idea about this, until I noticed a new section on our Wiki page that describes the installation notes for FreeBSD:

    You can alternatively take the easy way and install Eventum from FreeBSD’s ports collection. At first, you need to update your ports collection using cvsup (http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/cvsup.html). Once you updated your ports directory, use: cd /usr/ports/www/eventum && make install clean

    Pretty cool

    Application Structure
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    I love how Richard Heyes’ Application Structure post which describes his way of layint out PHP applications is similar to my own personal structure. I have been using something very similar for a few years now, which evolved by working with PHP applications and dealing with problems and how to avoid them in the future, so it’s amusing to see two people come up with something so similar.

    I basically agree with the way he separates library code from normal PHP scripts that are available to the Web, but I do things a bit different. I use the following directory structure:

    application root
      |
      +- crons
      +- include
      |    +- jpgraph
      |    +- pear
      |    +- Smarty
      +- locks
      +- logs
      +- scripts
      +- setup
      +- templates
      +- templates_c
      +- webroot
           +- css
           +- images
           +- js

    Getting up to date on contributions
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    So the last few months were pretty busy at work, and I had not much free time to handle Eventum patches/contributions from the community, so I’ll be catching up for the next few days and make sure we are going through the process of merging those changes into the next release of Eventum.

    The community as a whole seems to be growing at every release we do, and we will try to release more often in the future. The next 1.5 release of Eventum should have some pretty nice features, like per-project permissions and etc that Bryan was working on.
