Subject Releasing 2.0.3?
Date Thu, 11 Jul 2002 10:35:31 GMT

with the help of Stuart we now seem to have solved the JDK 1.3/1.4 issues.
Thanks Stuart!

Now, we can go on planning the 2.0.3 release...

Building Cocoon now requires to set a new build property "jvm-target"
to either "13" or "14". When doing this you get either a version targetted
for jdk 1.2 upto 1.3 or jdk 1.4.
I tried to automate this as ant detects which jvm is used to build Cocoon
but failed in testing the specification. It is possible to use the system
property "java.specification.version" which returns "1.2", "1.3" or "1.4".
But then we have to distribute different versions of the jar files for
all these possible values as we can't compare values with Ant.

Ok, anyway, it works this way and we can see for the 2.1 release if we
have a better solution.

So, we need do to the following:

a) Testing if everything works, espcially with regards to the different
   JVMs - I did a quick SQL test with both versions and they both

b) Update the documentation to include the "jvm-target" property etc. This
   should also go into the README

c) Layout the distribution

So, any volunteer for a) and b) is very very welcome!!

Let's get to c):
Currently, we have a binary and a source distribution - so we can either
c.1) Make two big binary distributions (for 1.2/1.3 and 1.4) and a source
c.2) Make one big binary distrubution for 1.2/1.3 and a diff or update for
     and a source one.
The easiest way would be c.1)

What do you think?

Ah, and finally a release date. If no problems or big bugs are found, I
would propose monday, 15th of July.
