Subject [jira] Created: (JXPATH-138) jxpath 1.3 / mockrunner dependency
Date Mon, 31 Aug 2009 10:22:33 GMT
jxpath 1.3 / mockrunner dependency

                 Key: JXPATH-138
             Project: Commons JXPath
          Issue Type: Wish
    Affects Versions: 1.3
            Reporter: Alexander Kahl
            Priority: Blocker

I'm a packager for the Fedora Project and co-maintainer of jxpath. We,
the maintainers of jxpath, recently tried to update to the latest
version 1.3 and realized that building the package requires mockrunner
which seems to be quite unmaintained and pulls in unbearable
dependencies like a full-fledged J2EE stack. We would therefore like to
ask you to migrate to a modern, actively maintained replacement like
easymock2. Other downstream projects (esp. distributions) that depend on
building from source would also benefit from doing so.

The ticket priority is "Blocker" because using mockrunner effectively prevents us from updating
to 1.3.
