Alexander Kahl commented on JXPATH-138:
---------------------------------------

Fedora Packaging Guidelines require *all* software to build from source and *all* provided
tests to be run.

>          Issue Type: Wish

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