I've finally completed the autoconf/automake integration for the C++ python binding. Since this may break trunk or it may be too late for the year1 deliverable, I won't commit the change right now.

Instead I'm attaching a diff to make it possible.

Several specific notes:

  • I renamed the filename of the C++ wrapper from to, since "message" can be a confusing term.
  • Likewise, I've changed the installed file name.
  • ./configure now needs separte swithces for boost::system and boost::python. --with-boost-system and --with-boost-python. They're enabled by default as long as they are found in search paths.
  • the wrapper .so will be installed bind9's standard library directory. a separate install script will make a symbolic link from bind9's python site-packages directory to the installed .so file.

Please someone review the diff (the diff itself is quite small). I'd leave the decision of whether to incorporate this to year1 to others (Shane and Jeremy?).

  • Owner changed from shane to jinmei
  • Status changed from new to assigned

Since this patch missed the year1 deadline, I'll make some more cleanups then ask for review again.

  • Owner changed from jinmei to UnAssigned

Since this patch missed the year1 deadline, I'll make some more cleanups then ask for review again.

Okay, this work is completed. Please review r1617 (and r1618 and r1619 for minor additional cleanups).

Some additional notes:

  • I've figured out how to install loadable module (.so) directly, so the symblic link trick is now unneeded.
  • I've made some changes to (renamed from + removed <string>. At least I didn't need it, and it actually interfered with some boost definitions. + we can't directly pass a pointer to InputBuffer::len_ to PyBytes_AsStringAndSize() due to size mismatch. We could deal with this with an ugly evil reinterpret_cast, but I introduced (IMO) safer fix.

Jinmei, has this code been committed?

If so we'll include it as part of the review for ticket #87 (the general Python wrapper review).

If not, then I'll happily assign it to someone. :)

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

Since Jelte is reimplementing the Python bindings, I'm going to consider this ticket to be overtaken by events.

Jinmei, if you think it is important we can re-open it and make sure we act on it.
