Wish you guys had a better documentation!!
Or some better FAQ or a wiki. The documentation is bare-bones, and it definitely needs technical attention!
And using foul language is no way to answer qs...You are under no obligation to answer the question!!
More professionalism is expected from jboss than this
To be sure, I do not believe Ronald is a JBoss employee. He's just a hard working guy that donates his free time to helping people out with jBPM-related questions. I don't know if you read all the posts in this forum, but as a moderator type guy, I'm sure Ronald does. So I can imagine his frustration at seeing the same questions asked and answered over and over again when there is a perfectly functioning search feature.
Whatever be the case : he may be a hard-working jboss employee or a diligent forum moderator , he has no business using foul language! I dont think it is professional or acceptable in either case.
He could have just chosen not to ignore the post (just as many other posts are in the forum)
Sometimes somthing just triggers you. This post did.... why?
For this specific issue, which is not even a jBPM issue, but stemms from the fact that jBPM uses hibernate.
So step one is that you are, technically, posting the question in the wrong forum. You could have known that if you did a little investigation. Chances are big you didn't.
Secondly, it is just a warning, happening when you do a very common thing. So chances are big someone before you would have run into this before. They did, more than once.
Thirdly, the web is not about documentation, it is about information. More than one source is available for this. The amount you can print out and read as a bool while enjoying a nice cocktail on a white sandy beach with beautiful women around you is low. Admitted. The amount you can find by using the searchfunctionality on the JBoss site, this forum or even google (do not tell me you never used google), is growing every minute by (amongst others) me answering questions in this forum
So, just like I should be a good citizen, so should all the others. Read http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html#answers and see how to interpret things. I've been nice before specifically on this item (read http://www.jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&p=3944627#3944627 and all referencing urls in it.
Peace, oh and remember.... Marc Loves you
You can give whatever reason/excuses you want for your inappropriate reply...but nothing really justifies it. This is a public forum, and one can post whatever one wants!
You could also take a leaf out of your own book, and try to be a better citizen!
Lets just close this thread, and lets not get too personal, impulsive or merely triggered in all future posts. And I still maintain that you DID NOT HAVE TO REPLY TO THE POST!
Do you see the contradiction here?
This is a public forum, and one can post whatever one wants!
Besides the fact that I have a different opinion, I choose to post whatever I wanted so.
And no, I did not have to reply BUT YOU SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT AND SEARCHED BEFORE POSTING.
Besides that. You give WAY to little information on your environment (another misdemeanour IMNSHO). So who started this 'inappropriate' stuff?
And by referincing 'the' book again, which is btw not MY book but based on lots of earlier experiences by other people
Remember: When that hacker tells you that you've screwed up, and (no matter how gruffly) tells you not to do it again, he's acting out of concern for (1) you and (2) his community. It would be much easier for him to ignore you and filter you out of his life. If you can't manage to be grateful, at least have a little dignity, don't whine, and don't expect to be treated like a fragile doll just because you're a newcomer with a theatrically hypersensitive soul and delusions of entitlement.
You only point to me... he, he, he, you, you, you.... where is the I? Oh here it is I DID give you the answer, right? So Therefor I DID have to reply.
Oh and btw, how corteous to remain anonymous...
Whatever! You can go on as much as you like, trying to cover what YOU did... I guess I'll be the more decent "and better citizen" here and just chose to ignore all other posts in this thread, to bring an end to this!
