Subject upgrading some supporting products
Date Fri, 30 Jul 2010 07:50:12 GMT
One of the things that we usually do in the lead-up
to a release, especially one that is so long between,
is to upgrade some important supporting products.

Now that Gump is running Forrest again, it is showing
that we can upgrade these with some confidence.


Some candidates are Ant, Xerces, Xalan, xml-apis, Excalibur,
ant-contrib, various Apache Commons stuff.

See the list of supporting products being used by our Gump at 
The ones with "Annotation = Work Entity" are specific versions
of some products. Of course Gump is using a packaged version
of Cocoon-2.1.11 release, because Gump is not yet building the
head of Cocoon-2.1 branch. See our Gump descriptor at [1] for
more info.

The rest in the list at [2] are the head of each product's

So compare with what we have in our lib directories in SVN
to see what might be upgraded.

We are still using a very old version of Ehcache (v1.2.3)
and Gump is not yet attempting to use the recent development version.
So local testing would be needed to determine if that can
be upgraded.

If someone feels like doing those tasks, then please do.
