Subject [Q] Redistributable J2EE jar?
Date Sun, 21 Sep 2003 08:40:40 GMT

The Sun J2EE jar cannot be redistributed and that's a royal pain. Are
there plans to the same with J2EE as what was done for the servlet API
in Jakarta (,,

Currently for any framework that requires J2EE, we need to ask users to
manually download the Sun J2EE jar and install it locally. If a
lightweight redistributable version could exist, that would be so
great... :-)

What would be great is to make that effort separate from Geronimo itself
(same as the CVS servletapi module was created for Tomcat use) so that
it could be built and used in a standalone way.

Any take?
