In order to extend Database Model, Minyaa introduces an Abstract Model Manager.
Its allows a plugin to extend Database Model by creating its own Model Manager.
Before Minyaa 2.2, extension was done by modifying directly the OFBiz files !
This previous solution had many constraints :
- Restart after Minyaa installation,
- Risk of incoherence if the installation was stopped before the end,
- Need to force a stop on Trial License expiration (this point should be resolved with 2.3 or over)
Atlassian is providing a new solution to extend Database : AO Plugin
. But it is reserved to Plugin V2 and comes with some other constraints.
With Minyaa, we choose to provide a way to extend Database Model, availalable for Plugin V1, and allowing to use JIRA entities in queries based on the new added entities.
How it is working ?
Each plugin defines its Database Model Extension as resouces, and Minyaa accesses to OFBiz APIs to append the provided configurations
To extend Database Model, a Plugin has to extend its own Model Manager
