Subject [jira] [Commented] (AVRO-1769) Depend on external libjansson instead of a bundled copy
Date Mon, 28 Dec 2015 17:09:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1769?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15072916#comment-15072916

Douglas Creager commented on AVRO-1769:

This looks good, though the FindJansson module is pretty old.  Jansson ships a pkg-config
file, so you could use {{pkg_check_modules(JANSSON jansson>=2.3)}} instead, like we do
for lzma/xz.  That has the added benefit of having CMake verify that the Jansson that we find
meets our >=2.3 version requirement.

> To fix AVRO-1691 we need to update to a newer version of Jansson. However, rather than
updating the version of Jansson that is bundled with Avro-C, this would be a good time to
switch to a dynamically linked version. As [~edenhill] pointed out, libjansson is widely available
in distributions nowadays.
