Subject RE: What do I need to build/test?
Date Wed, 06 Aug 2003 14:07:13 GMT

I can understand the "version lock or skew" issue - I guess I just wasn't
what was expected of me.  Take the list of jars you said you have, that's
close to what I have, but is that really all I need to feel safe when I
commit a new
change?  For example, I was assuming "httpunit" is one that I really needed
to have,
but maybe not.  And when I went to download it there wasn't an obvious
"download here" link on that page so I stopped, and decided it just wasn't
the trouble - which lead me to think Axis should have those in its cvs tree
to make
life easier for everyone.  Is there a license issue to include them in the
cvs tree
as long as we don't ship them?

Subject:    RE: What do I need to build/test?

We have avoided checking in some jar files to our tree to prevent version
lock or skew.  If you drop (most of?) these jars in xml-axis/lib, they will
get picked up automatically by the ant scripts.  I wouldn't be opposed to
checking in copies of stuff to the tree, but its unclear if we can
distribute Sun stuff (activation, mail, etc) per the license.

Here is what I have on my class path:
  xercesImpl.jar                     (I have 2.3.0, but is doesn't matter)
  junit.jar                    (3.7 is what I use)
  log4j.jar                    (1.2.x)

>From the top level build.xml, here is what it says:

   jakarta-ant        from
   wsdl4j             from
   commons-logging    from
   commons-discovery  from
   log4j              from
   activation         from
   mailapi            from

Optional components:
   servlet            from
   regexp             from
   junit              from
   jimi               from
   xml-security       from
   jsse               from
   commons-httpclient from
   httpunit           from
   jms                from
   castor             from
j2ee.jar contains the mailapi, activation and servlet libraries

Subject: What do I need to build/test?

Would it be possible for someone to check-in all of the jars someone
would need in their classpath to build/test?  Quite a few new jars are now
required in order for someone to build and run all of the required tests.
It would really be nice (just from the convenience factor) to have the
set of jars a committer should have in their classpath when they say
"ant clean all" - and if that works then they can feel safe to commit their
changes.   Maye just a copy of them in java/build/lib  ??
