Discard layers with same name as a dependency causes problems?

Description (last modified by James Burke)

Reported in the forums.

May be two issues: 1) discard layer still shows up in the build output? 2) the dojo.require call for the dependency is stripped out of dependent layers.

It could be related to having the layer name the same name as a module resource.

This is Lance who originally reported on the issue in the forum.

I went back to the profile and renamed the name and resourceName for the discard layer to "dojomino.session.discard" and rebuilt the project.

Build.txt does not include dojomino.session - good.

In the dojomino.js.uncompressed.js file, in the NamePickerSingle? class, the dojo.require('dojomino.session') has been removed - bad. (Still the same issue.)

So I think the issue is global to the build process, and not related strictly to the name and resourceName being the same as the underlying module to be discarded.

Hope this helps.

This is going to be a larger code change than what I feel comfortable for 1.0.2. This ties into the logic where the require calls that are satisfied in other layers are stripped out of dependent layers since it is assumed that is layer dependencies will be loaded before it. I'll give this more thought for the 1.1 release.

In the meantime, you can get around the problem by not doing a discard layer, but specifying your dependency like so:


That syntax is not picked up by the build's regexp dependency parsing, so it should give you the desired effect. Unfortunately it means changing code instead of changing a build profile.

(For future reference, the issue is in buildUtil.getDependencyList() around line 390: the currentProvideList array needs to be trimmed for things that are in a dependent discard layer. Trick is, everything that is required by the discard layer would be trimmed out, which might not be wise since another layer may be loading that dependency. I think it works out, but there needs to be care to make sure the right sort of list is compared when doing the provideList trimming.)

Bulk update to assign BuildSystem? tickets to Rawld. Many of these are probably already fixed in 1.7.
