Subject Re: Will fscontext and providerutil jars be available for automatic download?
Date Fri, 22 Dec 2006 09:56:10 GMT
Hi Bill,

fscontext.jar includes a "File System Service Provider for JNDI"; it 
supports the JNDI features for a local or networked file system. The jar 
providerutils.jar includes utilities used by service provider. You can 
get it from Sun's JNDI Downloads page: 
http://java.sun.com/products/jndi/downloads/index.html. You need to 
click 'Download JNDI 1.2.1 & More', accept the license agreement and 
then download 'File System Service Provider, 1.2 Beta 3'. The zip 
fscontext-1_2-beta3.zip includes fscontext.jat and providerutil.jar.

JDO supports finding a PersistenceManagerFactory via JNDI. The TCK uses 
the above implementation to test the JNDI related APIs. Today a TCK user 
has to manually download the jars and copy them to a specific directory 
in the TCK. It would improve usability if we could define a regular 
maven dependency such that maven automatically downloads the jars.
