Subject [MERLIN] build problem resolved
Date Sat, 29 Mar 2003 06:41:54 GMT

Earlier this evening Jason and I got stuck into the Merlin build problem 
that was raised on the Avalon User list a couple of weeks ago.  It seems 
that there is a problem related to the setup of the web-server on OSM 
and a Maven requirement to see the parent directory.

We have resolved this problem by moving the jar files from OSM site to 
ibiblio (the default Maven repository) under the group identifiers 
"avalon", "excalibur" and "merlin".  In the meantime Jason is looking 
into problems that Maven encounters when it does not have access to a 
parent directory (as in the case on the OSM server under its current 

Following these changes there should be no problem building merlin from CVS.

  $ cd avalon-sandbox
  $ maven merlin-dist

See the README.TXT for further information.

For reference the following supporting jar files have been moved from 
OSM to ibiblio.


The Avalon license has been sent through to Dion earlier this evening.  
Please note that the above list of jar files will need to be updated to 
reflect the excalibur release process, however, before that happens I 
need to take care of synchronizing Merlin with the Phase 1 releases 
including updating of related excalibur project definitions.

The following jar files have also been moved from OSM to ibiblio and 
correspond to Meta, Assembly and Merlin core packages.


Based on the test build performed by Jason there is a problem related to 
the SAX libraries which are not declared as a dependency.  This is not a 
problem if you building under JDK 1.4 but will cause a build failure 
under 1.3.  I'll try to get that one sorted ASAP.

Cheers, Steve.
