Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-4024) Replace felix.jar file with the felix sources
Date Sat, 17 Jan 2009 01:21:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4024?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12664766#action_12664766

Andrew McIntyre commented on DERBY-4024:

I'm not sure that I understand the reasoning behind this change. felix.jar is a part of Derby's
source distribution. Derby completely compiles from the source tarball today, easier than
ever thanks to all your recent build work. What advantage is conferred by including the Felix
source instead of the jar file in the source distribution, exactly?

> In order to bundle Derby with popular linux distributions like Debian and Ubuntu, it
must be possible to build Derby from sources and existing linux components. By replacing Felix
jar with the corresponding sources, we move another step closer to being able to bundle Derby
with linux distributions.
