We are happy to announce Open Web Apps(OWA) module version 1 has been released.
I would like to thank @sunbiz and @sandeepraparthi for developing this module. Thank you @darius for pushing us to release the module and @pascal for trying it out.
OWA Module is uploaded at https://modules.openmrs.org/#/show/224/open-web-apps-module
Documentation for developers to create apps can be found here - https://wiki.openmrs.org/display/docs/Open+Web+Apps+Module
Module source code is here - https://github.com/sunbiz/openmrs-module-owa
I’m pretty excited to see this, but the first time I tried to start OpenMRS with this module, I got an error:
Caused by: javax.servlet.ServletException: FileServlet init param ‘basePath’ is required.
Peeking at the code it seems to me that before starting the module I have to manually set the
owa.appFolderPath global property. Is this right? Can’t we set this by default to a folder like /owa in the OpenMRS application directory?
Full error on pastebin.
I have replicated the issue. We are setting default value for appFolderPath
variable but not on startup of module. I have created this issue in GitHub:
I will make change and commit.
Thanks for the fix @n_nehete. v1.1 of the module released to module repo
