Subject [jira] Updated: (GERONIMO-1686) Servlet 2.5 and JSP 2.1 api jars for JavaEE 5 work
Date Wed, 28 Jun 2006 11:26:30 GMT

Greg Wilkins updated GERONIMO-1686:

    Attachment: geronimo-spec-servlet-2.5.patch

This patch adds  jetty version of the javax.servlet API  to the main geronimo spec repo.

While much work has been done typing in the 2.5 specification, this lacks the javadoc which
is a vital part of the specification.   Thus I think we need a better version.

The Jetty version has the following history:

 1) copied from the apache 2.0 licenced jakarta 2.4 files
 2) patched to 2.5 by comparison to the apache licensed glassfish 2.5 files (before they 
     were converted to a sun license (how can they do that?)).
 3) manually maintained by monitoring posts to the servlet JSR EG group.

The javadoc in these files is probably not perfect... but it is close.  
I think the history above makes these legal - although it may be better eventually to get
the jars from tomcat 6?
