Did you test this plugin with AR System 7.6.04? Now in 7.6.04, the arplugin process runs in 64 bits and that's not the case in the version 7.5 described in your documentation.
I have not tested it on ARS 7.6.04. But since this plugin uses java (no native libraries are included in this plugin distribution), I think It should work seamlessly.
Or could you please test it on your ARS 7.6.04 on 64 bit machine and share the result here?
Sure, I will test it on a 64bits 7.6.04 installation as soon as I have enough time.
I'll keep you informed.
I have tested this on windows 2008 and ARS 7.6.03.
This is working fine.
Thanks for sharing such a nice plugin.
Thanks and regards,
thank you for your effort testing the plugin. Nice to hear that it works on ARS 7.6.03. I hope it will broaden the people that can take benefit of this plugin.
thanks for the plugin, good job!
If you're accepting wishes for future versions, here's one: add regexp-based substitution/replacement, as in perl 's/<regex>/<subst>/g' construct. This would be the most-welcomed feature
Thank you for your suggestion. That's really a great idea. I will inform here when the feature is available
Based on Sergey's wish, I have updated the Regex plug-in. Now it supports string substitution. Hope that this will make you take more benefit from this plugin.
Thank you Sergey. Anyone who has any idea to improve this plug-in, kindly write your wishes here
I tried to install it on ARS 7.5. I followed your instructions, but when trying to access the plugin I get the error:
The specified plug-in does not exist. :
MII.ARF.REGEXVALID (ARERR 8755)
I activated the plugin log, and don't see anything extrange.
Could you tell me where to start to solve the problem?
1. Make sure that your <AR System Installation>/pluginsvr/pluginsvr_config.xml file contains MII.ARF.REGEXVALID configuration like this:
<pathelement type="location">C:/Program Files/BMC Software/ARSystem/pluginsvr/regexfilterapi-3.0.jar</pathelement>
2. Make sure that your ar.cfg (or ar.conf) file contains MII.ARF.REGEXVALID configuration like this
Server-Plugin-Alias: MII.ARF.REGEXVALID MII.ARF.REGEXVALID <your arserver name>:9999
3. After you modify these values, restart arplugin. If you don't know how to restart arplugin, just restart the arsystem service.
first of all, your jar location file is "C:/BMCSoftware/ARSystem/pluginsvr/regexfilterapi-3.0.jar" but you write it in your pluginsvr_config.xml file as "C:/BMC Software/ARSystem/pluginsvr/regexfilterapi-3.0.jar". So, remove the space in "BMC Software".
I notice that in your pluignsvr_config.xml, you write (with space after dot)
It must not contain any spaces. It must be
Note: there are some errors in the documentation. I checked the documentation of this plugin and it contains spaces as well. I will revise the documentation and reupload it.
Modify your pluginsvr_config.xml file accordingly then don't forget to restart the arplugin.
That was the error. Changed the files, restarted the service and it's now running. Thank you for this valuable contribution.
I'm creating a def file so the call to the filter api is made using a service wich can be easier to many people (including me), and also can unitarily test the functionality or the regular expression used.
Also I will publish this plug in and the def file on my blog, citing you (if you don't have any inconvenience).
Thanks for your contribution. Sure, you can publish this plugin on your blog. That's the power of communities. Our contributions will make ordinary product become good and good product become great.
