Bug: path._base == unicode on Python2.7

Reported by: jamoore Owned by: spli
Priority: major Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: OmeroPy Version: 5.0.5
Keywords: n.a. Cc: python-team@…, mtbcarroll, cblackburn, spli, hflynn

See: https://github.com/openmicroscopy/openmicroscopy/pull/864/files#r3373785

Under Python 2.7, path.path IS-A unicode as opposed to Python 2.6 where it IS-A str. Minimally, rstring will need to be updated to check isinstance(val, (str, unicode)) which is a pretty common occurrence. More likely, the entire RString stack will need to be checked for unicode handling including unit tests.

Once this is fixed, the rstring(str(f.abspath())) in repository.py can have the str removed; such str may have been added elsewhere as a temporary measure.

  • Cc spli added
  • Milestone changed from 5.x to 5.1.0-m3
  • Version set to 5.0.5

Is this something that needs to be taken care of ASAP?

If anyone has time to look at this, feel free.

  • Milestone changed from 5.1.1 to 5.2.0-m1

Talking to Simon, there are likely 2 ways to fix this:

  • modify path.py to behave appropriately
  • updating rstring to properly handle unicode (largely to match gateway's handling)

Both of these are really too dangerous for 5.1.1. Pushing to 5.2 with the hope that we will just drop PY26 in 5.2. Otherwise, it will be a good time for a breaking change.

  • Milestone changed from 5.2.0 to OMERO-5.2.0

Splitting due to milestone decoupling.

Can I propose we update rstring for 5.2.0 and document the (breaking) change?

Simon, is there anything left to do here after https://github.com/openmicroscopy/openmicroscopy/pull/3950 ?
