Description huggi 2002-06-13 18:15:35 UTC
I'm using Mozilla 1.0 (final build) and set-up a database connection between ooo
and the mozilla addressbook in my german ooo-version 1.0:

How I did set-up the "Mozilla Addressbook":
1. Using OOOWriter 1.0 (final build)
1a. Over the menu File > Document template > Addressbook source
1c. Click 'Administration'
1d. Click 'new Datasource'
1e. Change database type to 'Adressbook'
1f. Change database URL to 'Mozilla Addressbook'
1g. Click 'Okay', finish!

How I realized that, the "Mozilla Addressbook" wouldn't update if the
ooo-Quicklounder is active:
1. Using OOOWriter 1.0 (final build)
1a. Pressing "F4"
1b. Selecting the current "Mozilla Addressbook" database
1c. All entries are there.

2. Using Mozilla 1.0 (final build)
2a. Using 'Addressbok'
2b. Adding a new entry
2c. Closing 'Mozilla'

3. Using OOOWriter 1.0 (final build), already opened (see 1.)
3a. Pressing "F4"
3b. Selecting the current "Mozilla Addressbook" database
3c. All entries are there, except the new one.

What I did try to update the "Mozilla Addressbock" without changing any settings
4a. Pressing the "Update"-icon does not change the situation
4b. Using the menu Extras > Update > Update all does not change the situation
4c. Disconnecting and Re-Connecting the database won't change the situation
4d. Escaping OOOWriter and opening it again wont change the situation.

What solve the problem
5a. Closing "quickstarter"
5b. Closing OOoWriter
5c. Opening "quickstarter" and OOOWriter again, all entries (including the new
one are showed together).

So for me the "Mozilla Addressbook" is used like a static file, only updated
when you restart (including "quickstarter"). For my
understanding, this should be a "live" connection and should be updated if you
press "update" ;-)

Good look!

this is definately a database access issue
Comment 2 john.marmion 2002-10-22 14:06:42 UTC
There is a fix for this which is available currently in the latest
developer build. This fix will b ein the next release of OOo. The fix
means that if  the Data Administration window is closed, then all
updates since the previous connection will be available.  Note that if
the "Enable Pooling" is enabled for the Mozab SDBC connection in the
Options->Data Sources-> Connections, then this update will not appear
until the Timeout period (default 60 seconds) has elapsed.

I appreciate that this is not a total fix i.e. the refresh update is
not available until you exit the Data Administration, but this is a
huge improvement particulary in the  situation where the QuickStart
feature means that OOo is permanetly loaded. Also, the same behaviour
would be visible if you were able to run two simultaineous version of
Mozilla's Address Books.

I would vote to mark this as fixed
