Bug Description

I tried to run S&D with latest version of z3c.form with Plone 4.
Zope raises ConfigurationConflictError, because collective.singing adds z3c:widgetTemplates for radio and checkbox widgets which are already part of later z3c.form releases. Splitting up into different zcml files and providing a feature we could check on using zcml:condition would be a nice solution to work with both, old and new z3c.form library.

I'm also running into this problem, but fortunately, I only need Plone4 compatibility at this point.

Quick fix for Plone4 only: Delete the two offending registrations in collective.singing-0.6.15-py2.6.egg/collective/singing/browser/configure.zcml.

Using zcml.condition requires z3c.form to provide the appropriate features. The following patch does this:

After that, one can ask for these features in the configure.zcml of collective.singing. Because I'm lazy, I only checked for one feature, and put both widgets into one zcml file:

$ cat oldz3cform.zcml


$ diff -uw configure.zcml.orig configure.zcml

With these changes, I can now fire up a Plone 4 server with collective.dancing 0.9 installed. I've not checked with older versions, though.

I'd say we just drop support for older versions of z3c.form. Can we find out which version introduced the widgets in question, and just require that as a minimum version in Still might want to leave oldz3cform.zcml around for people who like to tinker.

I'll modify the collective.singing/browser/configure.zcml the next days on trunk and will add a new old_z3cform.zcml which includes these widget template registrations. We have to update the documentation when chaning this (see #456383) because most people will claim about non-working s&d installation after updating to a new release.
