Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-433) Tolerate non-Sun JREs
Date Tue, 26 Jul 2005 11:15:30 GMT

Vamsavardhana Reddy commented on GERONIMO-433:

I tried building the Geronimo M4 source thru Eclipse using Sun's SDK 1.4.2 and IBM's SDK 1.4.2
.  Here are my findings:

With IBM's SDK, only one file, namely, modules\security\src\test\org\apache\geronimo\security\network\protocol\
fails to compile with error, "import can not be resolved".
 All other references to com.sun.* classes are made indirectly by coding the class name as
a String parameter.

-- Did not find any references to in the workspace

-- com.sun.jndi.rmi.registry.RegistryContextFactory is available in IBM's SDK under server.jar

-- is not in IBM's SDK, but,
is available in security.jar

-- is not in IBM's SDK, but,
is in ibmjgssprovider.jar

The classes available in IBM's SDK implement the same interface/extend the same class as their
counterparts in Sun's SDK.  To tolerate other JRE's, the references to these classes need
to be moved into a configuration file instead of hardcoding them in the java files.

OpenEJB seems to have a dependency on Sun's SDK.  As of now, I don't know how this can be
made to tolerate non-Sun JREs
