Any time we have a new source for the loader or need to provision into a
different AD we need to update the properties files and for them to get into
effect we need to rebuild.

Just curious, why do you need to rebuild? The patches have the latest code
in there. If you are editing files and want to incorporate them then need to
rebuild, but for hooks or plugins you can just make your own jar and not
bother with rebuilding grouper.

With the one command to apply all patches we have tried to make it not very

If you don’t apply patches on top of a build then things could get messy if
you are editing or downloading files on top of patches. The patches make
sure that the underlying files are not edited when they are applied.

We have been kicking the tires on Grouper for over a year now and this is the
first time we are hearing about this. Re-build should of course not wipe out
previously installed patches. Now, a separate function called factory reset
would wipe out patches and configuration but a rebuild should simply rebuild
with any code and patches in place.

This is particularly important with Grouper where the patching process is
very cumbersome and somewhat flawed. I will surely look at the wiki and adopt
the automation of patching.

I hope the Grouper team reconsiders the patching process and finds ways to
improve, as well as the rebuild with respect to patching.
