I need to say that I do not know how org-mode interfaces with BBDB.
I am CC'ing this email also to emacs-orgmode@gnu.org.

If org-mode is set up to work with BBDB v2.x, (most likely) this
does not work with BBDB v3. Defining aliases for the old BBDB
functions in terms of the new ones would work only in a few cases.
Of course, this depends first of all on how org-mode is supposed to
work with BBDB.

Yet we are trying to make the new BBDB part of GNU Emacs. So it
would be great if org-mode could be updated to provide (also) an
interface for the new BBDB.

While I'd like to declare soon that BBDB v3 has reached a beta
stage, it was probably good if someone familiar with org-mode's
interface to BBDB could take a look into this so that we could try
to make sure that the new BBDB can work with org-mode as smoothly as
possible. (Various add-ons for BBDB v2 had to go through some pain
to work as intended by advicing BBDB functions and things like that.
With BBDB v3 I tried to clean up and simplify these things; and
various add-ons for BBDB v2 are already incorporated into v3 in one
or the other way. It would probably be good if the needs of org-mode
could be incorporated into the new BBDB before we declare that BBDB
v3 has reached a beta stage.)

I forgot to say:

It is an item on the todo list for BBDB v3 to provide a more complete
list for how things have changed from BBDB v2 to v3.

I'd be happy to take this on. AFAICT, there are three functions in
org-bbdb that no longer exist in bbdb v3.

bbdb-name
bbdb-company
bbdb-record-getprop

The first two can easily be defaliased to bbdb-search-organization and
bbdb-search-name. (For a while, we should probably support bbdb v2 and
v3 simultaneously.)

What is the new name of bbdb-record-getprop (the function that retrieves
the value of a given label in a record)? My best guess is
bbdb-record-note, but I want to confirm this.

The other major change that breaks compatibility is the order of the
parameters in bbdb-split. It has been reversed in the new bbdb: i.e.,
one used to call (bbdb-split string separator), whereas now one must
call (bbdb-split separator string). Is there a compelling reason to
change this order in the new bbdb?

Best,
Matt

Things might be a bit more subtle. The new organization field is
a list, not a single string.

That's mostly true. bbdb-record-getprop also retrieved the company field.

The change is not only with respect to the order of arguments that
could be reverted in BBDB v3. More importantly, I tried to get rid
of hard-coded separators. Most often the separator arg is now the
name of the field that is split. Then the actual separator is looked
up in bbdb-separator-alist. While I do not know yet a good strategy
for the upgrade of org-mode's BBDB interface, I'd find it
unfortunate if such a feature was lost in org-mode to preserve
backward compatibility.

If you want you can build on top of my version. The anniversaries is
still broken since I don't use BBDB-anniv.el. The rest works well for
the past few weeks.

;;; Commentary:

;; This file implements links to BBDB database entries from within Org-mode.
;; Org-mode loads this module by default - if this is not what you want,
;; configure the variable `org-modules'.

;; It also implements an interface (based on Ivar Rummelhoff's
;; bbdb-anniv.el) for those org-mode users, who do not use the diary
;; but who do want to include the anniversaries stored in the BBDB
;; into the org-agenda.  If you already include the `diary' into the
;; agenda, you might want to prefer to include the anniversaries in
;; the diary using bbdb-anniv.el.
;;
;; Put the following in /somewhere/at/home/diary.org and make sure
;; that this file is in `org-agenda-files`
;;
;; %%(org-bbdb-anniversaries)
;;
;; For example my diary.org looks like:
;; * Anniversaries
;; #+CATEGORY: Anniv
;; %%(org-bbdb-anniversaries)
;;
;;
;; To add an anniversary to a BBDB record, press `C-o' in the record.
;; You will be prompted for the field name, in this case it must be
;; "anniversary".  If this is the first time you are using this field,
;; you need to confirm that it should be created.
;;
;; The format of an anniversary field stored in BBDB is the following
;; (items in {} are optional):
;;
;;     YYYY-MM-DD{ CLASS-OR-FORMAT-STRING}
;;     {\nYYYY-MM-DD CLASS-OR-FORMAT-STRING}...
;;
;; CLASS-OR-FORMAT-STRING is one of two things:
;;
;;  - an identifier for a class of anniversaries (eg. birthday or
;;    wedding) from `org-bbdb-anniversary-format-alist' which then
;;    defines the format string for this class
;;  - the (format) string displayed in the diary.
;;
;; You can enter multiple anniversaries for a single BBDB record by
;; separating them with a newline character.  At the BBDB prompt for
;; the field value, type `C-q C-j' to enter a newline between two
;; anniversaries.
;;
;; If you omit the CLASS-OR-FORMAT-STRING entirely, it defaults to the
;; value of `org-bbdb-default-anniversary-format' ("birthday" by
;; default).
;;
;; The substitutions in the format string are (in order):
;;  - the name of the record containing this anniversary
;;  - the number of years
;;  - an ordinal suffix (st, nd, rd, th) for the year
;;
;; See the documentation of `org-bbdb-anniversary-format-alist' for
;; further options.
;;
;; Example
;;
;;       1973-06-22
;;       20??-??-?? wedding
;;       1998-03-12 %s created bbdb-anniv.el %d years ago
;;
;; From Org's agenda, you can use `C-c C-o' to jump to the BBDB
;; link from which the entry at point originates.

Thanks. That's good to know. AFAICT, bbdb-search-organization already
accommodates for this fact. That is, if you give it a regexp, it will
return all records matching the regexp in the organization field. Since
org-bbdb calls bbdb-company with a string as an argument, wouldn't a
defalias be sufficient for the time being?

Thanks for the explanation. For the time being, I'll add a workaround to
accommodate both versions.

Best,
Matt

Thanks Leo! This is very helpful.

I have anniversaries working in my own setup, so between the two sets of
modifications, I should be able to provide a full set of fixes. More
soon...

Hi Matt,

Would you mind sharing the working bits of your setup?
I just tried %%(org-bbdb-anniversaries) and got a
Bad sexp at line […]

thanks for the effort!

I haven't tried bbdb-3.0 yet - I'm still on "bbdb-2.36 devo",
so I can't help with 3.0 problems. But if you want to debug
it a bit, then the following method should give you some idea
of what's going wrong.

Switch to the *scratch* buffer and evaluate the following:

(setq debug-on-error t)
(setq date '(6 13 2011))   ; you can set the date to different things
                           ; in order to pick up different anniversaries etc.
(org-bbdb-anniversaries)

I hope this gives you a backtrace but it may be that the error is caught
(in order to produce the "Bad diary sexp at ..." message) and I'm not
sure whether a backtrace is produced in this case, but it's still worth
trying I think.  In any case, check the *Messages* buffer as well.

HTH,
Nick

Certainly. These are the temporary workarounds I'm using to get org-bbdb
to work with the new bbdb:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defalias 'bbdb-company 'bbdb-search-organization)
(defalias 'bbdb-name 'bbdb-search-name)

(defun bbdb-record-getprop (record label)
  (and (eq label 'company)
       (setq label 'organization))
  (if (memq label '(name degree organization address phone mail aka))
      (funcall
       (intern
	(concat "bbdb-record-" (symbol-name label)))
       record)
    (bbdb-record-note record label)))

(defadvice bbdb-split (around my-bbdb-split activate)
  (when (or (string= string "\n") (string= string "-"))
    (let ((sep string))
      (setq string separator
	    separator sep)
      ad-do-it)))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Other work has prevented me from updating org-bbdb.el yet, but I will
get to it as soon as I can.

Best,
Matt

thanks, got it working now (with some fiddling).

looks like `calendar-date-style' is not honored /at all/, if you don't
use YYYY-MM-DD format (as stated in the org-bbdb.el header, admittedly),
it just blows up in your face :)

While I think the org-bbdb code could be made more forgiving,
I strongly feel that calendar-date-style is an evil variable,
especially if it is applied to input.  One should never rely on it.

my 5c.

Although I am likely to agree with you on this, any interactions with
Emacs's diary requires working with it.  

This reminds me of a problem with the insert anniversary function in the
default agenda view ("i a").  This function ignores the
calendar-date-style and inserts dates in the american style, which of
course means that diary entries are quietly ignored if you have
calendar-date-style set to anything other than 'american...

Not a big deal...  I don't use anniversaries *that* often!

I've made a simple change (attached) to org-agenda.el which at least
considers the 'iso date style as well as european.  Might not be fancy
lisp code but I think it works?

I know I should be formatting this appropriately etc but I'm still not
very comfortable with git...  too much to do, so little time.  sorry.

Thanks for the patch!  Indeed, there was a bug here which always forced
one particular date style even though the code was supposed to do the
right thing.  Thanks!

However, instead of applying your patch, I thought that maybe I
should put my foot where my mouth is and remove these dependencies
altogether.

So I have just introduced a few functions org-anniversary, org-cyclic
and a few more which are just like their diary-* cousins, but with a
stable (ISO) order of arguments.  Ahhhhh, I like this *much* better.
`i a' in the agenda will now also use org-anniversary, not diary-anniversary.

For users of org-diary-class, there is a new function org-class which works
the same as org-diary-class, but with stable argument ordering.

Carsten,

many thanks for this.  The org-anniversary, at the very least, seems to
work perfectly.  It's nice not to have to worry about date orders!
