Date Mon, 22 Dec 2008 20:06:44 GMT

Rick Hillegas updated DERBY-3985:
---------------------------------

    Attachment: derby-3985-01-aa-simplerBuildInstructions.diff

Attaching derby-3985-01-aa-simplerBuildInstructions.diff. This replaces BUILDING.txt with
a web page, BUILDING.html, which contains simplified instructions for building Derby. Note
that this patch should not be committed until DERBY-3984 is done.


Touches the following files:

A      BUILDING.html
D      BUILDING.txt

Replaces BUILDING.txt with BUILDING.html.


M      java/build/org/apache/derbyPreBuild/PropertySetter.java
M      java/testing/org/apache/derbyTesting/functionTests/tests/jdbc4/README.html
M      java/testing/org/apache/derbyTesting/functionTests/tests/junitTests/compatibility/testScript.xml

Replaces references to BUILDING.txt with references to BUILDING.html.

> At this point, BUILDING.txt contains a number of mis-statements. It is structured in
a way which makes the Derby build look complicated and intimidating. The build instructions
need to be thoroughly overhauled and divided into two main sections:
> 1) The simple build instructions for people who are new to the community. This will be
a build with few pre-requisites which just works out of the box.
> 2) Trickier build instructions for people who want compile-time checks for the different
platforms which Derby supports.
> While we're at it, I suggest that the revised instructions live in an html file rather
than a flat text file. I think this will result in a document that is more readable and easier
to navigate.
