Subject [GitHub] cloudstack pull request: Load mysql driver before connecting to db
Date Tue, 03 Nov 2015 08:47:23 GMT
Github user miguelaferreira commented on the pull request:
    I've searched the legal section of Apache's JIRA and found several posts about including
GPL licensed products in builds and test runs. One in particular (
mentions "runtime dependency". My commit "ccb2cd9568fd7d2febfe6de08e43c43e460c0bee" makes
the mysql connector an explicit runtime dependency, by requiring that the class is loaded.
    I would argue that mysql connector is already a runtime dependency because without it
the application won't run. My commit makes that explicit. Which could be a problem in legal-land.
    I've tried an failed miserably to understand how is the mysql connector loaded in tomcat
when installing from RPM. Does anyone know how this is done?
