Subject RE: [Vote] Geronimo Eclipse Plugin v1.1.0
Date Thu, 13 Jul 2006 19:28:42 GMT
Hi Sachin,

I’ve tried the RC 4 or 5, and here’s some feedback from me:
1) Simple jsp and servlet appears to be working with 1.1 server.
2) Simple jsp and servlet appears to be working with 1.0 server.  
3) I started to have trouble with the tomcat-jsp 5.5.12-1 examples, as the
deployment plan after import was not recognized by the Geronimo deployment
plan editor.   I have had similar prob in the past and the solution is a bit
painful - covert the Geronimo-web.xml to whatever full qualified tags the
plugin likes.   (I posted a discussion on this a while back ago).
4) Is the release note avail?  I can only find 1.0 release note.  I 'd like
to know the new functions in 1.1 besides the test environment option.
5) I don't see the update site package avail.  I'd really like to see users
being able to update from 1.0 plugin to 1.1's plugin via update manager.

I just checked the file and only see
Apache License there (not the full Apache 2.0 license) in all 3 features. 
It might be important to correct the license in these features as installing
via update manager is the recommended method to install the Eclipse plugin. 
 In Eclipse, user will have to accept the licenses in install panel before
the Eclipse continues the installation.

At a minimum, you need to add:
OpenEJB, MX4J, and XStream to the root LICENSE file
Which root license file I you referring to? Do I just append each license to
By root, I meant the notice and license files in
g-eclipse-plugin-1-1/META-INF/. I actually don't think that they should be
in the META-INF dir. I think you should end up with the following when you
geronimo-eclipse-plugin-1-1/NOTICE   (both license and notice should either
be .txt or have no suffix)
The additional license and notice information should be appended to the ASL
license and notice info. see
geronimo/branches/modules/scripts/src/resources/LICENSE.txt and NOTICE.txt
(you can just steal the appropriate sections from these files).
Looks like some of the jar files are still missing LICENSE and NOTICE
files. org.apache.geronimo.v11.deployment.model.edit_1.0.0.jar, for
MX4J, and XMLBeans to the root NOTICE file
Again which root?

Did you investigate Hessian licensing?
Yeah its under Apache 1.0 I think, but could not find a copy of it on their

I didn't find any licensing info (at first). So, took a look at the source.
The first source file I looked at contained the following:

I now see the following statement on their wiki:
"Caucho Technology has released this Hessian implementation under an open
source license (the Apache license). Anyone may freely download, use, and
redistribute the Hessian implementation."
But that's the strongest source of licensing info, that I've found...

I'm afraid I don't see either a NOTICE or LICENSE files in the plugin zip
file, itself, nor any of the embedded jar files. They all must contain both
LICENSE and NOTICE files. Afraid this is a <hard> requirement. And you'll
need to create new binaries... See for
more information.
We should be able to reuse some of the license information we generated for
G 1.1. I'm happy to help with that. I'm not sure how we're putting the
NOTICE and LICENSE info in each of the jar files. Shouldn't be too hard to
figure out, but perhaps someone can chime in...
