Subject [jira] Resolved: (DIRSERVER-931) Provide a zip/tar.gz download for DS
Date Tue, 08 Jul 2008 15:52:31 GMT


Pierre-Arnaud Marcelot resolved DIRSERVER-931.

    Resolution: Fixed


I created a new "Archive installer target". I've set up the installers pom.xml file to create
a zip and a tar.gz archive.
Each archive contains a "sh" and "bat" script to launch the server.

>             Fix For: 1.5.3
> Provide a zip/tar.gz download for DS in addition to the platform specific .exe download
(like there is for Tomcat:
> In many corporate environments it is not possible for users to install Windows exes whereas
unzipping a zip archive is possible. Same goes for Unix, it would be much easier to just untar
DS into a directory and run it instead of having root install it.
> So installing DS is not possible even if DS could be run as pure Java application.
> Even if you have full control over your windows machine I don't like if Java software
registers with the system, I like it much better if a software can be unzipped into a folder
and simply runs (as with Tomcat, Geronimo or Eclipse).
> A workaround right now is to run the DS setup in a vmware vm, zip the install folder
and unzip on the target machine.
