Subject BB10 bundling of node.js
Date Wed, 19 Jun 2013 19:01:52 GMT
I'd like to reopen the topic of bundling node js into the blackberry
platform.

I have personally gotten feedback from users of errors which were caused by
node version inconsistencies. We have since updated the check_req script to
test for the minimum version of node we require, but that is not an ideal
solution since users may need a different node version installed globally
for other software.

At a minimum, I'd like to give users the option to point to an alternate
version of node. I have logged a JIRA issue for that. [1]

What I'd prefer to do, is bundle the node binaries into the distribution.
That would completely eliminate the dependency. Users would only need to
worry about setting up the native SDK.

We already do this in the WebWorks SDK [2]

I'm interested how the community feels about this. Are there any licensing
concerns in Apache hosting binaries without source?
