Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-765) Create RPM with jpackage
Date Fri, 01 Jun 2007 03:46:15 GMT


Ole Ersoy commented on DIRSERVER-765:

The thing about JPackage is that
they allow only one official version
of each library supported in each
JPackage release.  

This means
that instead of having something
like a maven repository with 
lots of different versions of the 
same artifact, they have one version
of each artifact.  This in turn of coarse
means that if Tomcat and ApacheDS
depend on a library artifact, but depend
on different versions, JPackage might
decide that it's OK to use 
version 1.3.4 of the artifact for
both ApacheDS and Tomcat,
when the reality is that Tomcat was 
built with version 1.4.0 and ApacheDS

JPackage does have very good spec files though,
and highly skilled RPM packagers, so looking at their 
spec files is very helpful.
