Win32-service-0.6.1 using a Rails Model

Windows 2000 SP4
Ruby 1.8.6
Rail 1.2.6

I’m trying to create a Rail application for our internal use to
provide a one stop access to services. I’m currently trying to get the
Server.status, Service.stop and Service.start to work through a model
in Rails. The Service.* functions work well through Ruby itself, but
seems to have problem through a Rails Model. I’ve been trying to
display the status of the MySQL service.

*** Model

require “win32/service”

class Servicectl

    include Win32

    attr_reader :state

def servicestatus(service_name, host_name)
    @state = Service.status(service_name, host_name)
end

def servicestart(service_name, host_name)
    Service.start(service_name, host_name)
end

def servicestop(service_name, host_name)
    Service.stop(service_name, host_name)
end

end

*** Controller

class ServicectlController < ApplicationController

    def show
            service_state = Servicectl.new
            service_state.servicestatus("MySQL",nil)
            @status = service_state.state
    end

end

*** Show View

<%= @status %>

The following error is posted to the development.log.

I have no idea why it is failing, I’m hoping someone might have a clue
for me.

For reference this is the working code which works well though Ruby
itself.

*** service.rb

require “win32/service”

class ServiceController

    include Win32

    attr_accessor :state

def status(service_name, host_name)
    @state = Service.status(service_name, host_name)
end

def start(service_name, host_name)
    Service.start(service_name, host_name)
end

def stop(service_name, host_name)
    Service.stop(service_name, host_name)
end

end

*** Output:

C:\Shared\SourceCode\Ruby>ruby service.rb
running

Thanks for all your time,
Dave

lib/win32/service.rb:920:in status' C:/Shared/SourceCode/Rails/sandbox/app/models/servicectl.rb:14:inservicestatus’

The line number indicates that OpenService() function call failed, but
I’m not sure why. I’ve forwarded this to the win32utils-devel list. I
can only speculate at this point that it’s something to do with the way
it’s interacting with WEBrick, but I’m not sure.

We’ll keep you posted.

Dan

Roger, yes I’m a local Administrator on the box.

I can’t offer help with win32-service, but I could suggest an
alternative. You could do what you’re wanting to do with Windows
services via WMI, and I’ve written a ruby-wmi gem that has a syntax
similar to Activerecord. My rails is rusty, but here’s an idea.

*** Model

#nothing in here. :wink:

*** Controller

require ‘ruby-wmi’

class ServicesController < ApplicationController

GET /services

GET /services.xml

def index
@services = WMI::Win32_Service.find(:all)

respond_to do |format|
  format.html # index.html.erb
  format.xml  { render :xml => @services }
end

end

GET /services/1

GET /services/1.xml

def show
puts params
service = WMI::Win32_Service.find(:first, :conditions => {:name =>
params[‘id’]})
@status = service.state
end

def stop
service = WMI::Win32_Service.find(:first, :conditions => {:name =>
params[‘id’]})
service.stopservice
end

def start
service = WMI::Win32_Service.find(:first, :conditions => {:name =>
params[‘id’]})
service.startservice
end

end

*** Index view

<% for service in @services %>

<% end %>
<%= link_to service.name, service.name %> <%= service.state %> <%= service.startmode %>

*** Show view

<%= @status %>

Also, I’ll probably be releasing a new version soon (this weekend?)
which will have a WMI::Base#set_wmi_class_name method, similar to
ActiveRecord’s set_table_name for legacy tables.

Then you could write your model like this:

class Service << WMI::Base
set_wmi_class_name ‘Win32_Service’
end

and in your controller:

def index
@services = Service.find(:all)
end

I like the looks of this better, I just never really had a need for it
before now.
