Subject Re: building the spec
Date Tue, 01 Jun 2010 06:34:47 GMT
I completely agree, the Forrest situation is not just clumbsy to set up, but makes it more
difficult to build and contribute.  Its basically a dead project.

There are two needs that Forrest currently fills that I am aware of that may have different

* The website
* The documentation

We might use something like CQ5 or another content management solution for the web page, and
something else for generating the spec documentation and pdfs.
I'm not sure what is best (or available to Apache) for each, but I can certainly see these
two needs being satisfied by different tools.

Would be nice to just move to a documentation system that works for most people without serious
wrangling and that is, itself, actually maintained and supported (requiring Java 5 in 2010
is not actively maintained or supported).

Anyone have some good options or opinions in this area?

Are you on Snow Leopard?  If so, you manually have to install a copy of Java 5 and overwrite
the Mac symlinks in just the right way.  You don't have to change the default system JVM to
1.5 though.

Does the symlink /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5.0 point to a 1.6
JVM?  That is what it does on Snow Leopard by default. forrest is somehow not forward compatible
with Java 1.6.  The trick to getting it to work is to both set the property to that symlink,
and make sure that symlink points to an actual java 1.5 install.

There are a few threads from the Avro dev list over the past ~7 months that discuss the steps
needed to get it to work in more detail.
