Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-1194) Installer should only install packs(features) selected at install time
Date Sat, 14 Jan 2006 21:38:31 GMT

David Jencks commented on GERONIMO-1194:

The installer partly works for me.  Here are some remaining problems:

1. It is not clear what the copyright statement on the files in the new modules should be.
 We need advice from experts.

2. The installer does not know about the openejb, axis, openejb-builder, or axis-builder modules.

3. javamail/smtp doesn't work.  I set it to load=false for now.  If selected, the javamail
car does not get installed.

4. there is no default database: the system database should be installed as part of j2ee features.
 I set up the config.xml for this but I'm not sure what is making the copy happen.  In any
case the choice should be removed IMO.

5. IMO all selected cars should be enabled by default.  This does not happen if you select
tomcat and some tomcat apps: they are all disabled by default.

6. We should try to copy in only the jars needed by the configs plus the few that are included
into the installer independent of any config.
