Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-2226) Site migration to m2 build
Date Tue, 25 Jul 2006 00:14:14 GMT
Site migration to m2 build

                 Key: GERONIMO-2226
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: website
            Reporter: John Sisson
            Priority: Trivial

Currently the Geronimo site is build using Ant.

The Ant build has been recently updated to use Velocity to 1.5-dev (I built from svn rev 386004)
to fix issue where generated html files have inconsistent line endings when building the site
on Windows ( see


A conversion to Maven 2 needs to use a version of velocity that has this fix.

You can test whether the version of velocity has the fix by:

    * running touch * in cygwin in the geronimo\site\xdocs directory
    * build the site
    * attempt to check in the generated site files under geronimo\site\docs - if you don't
get any errors about inconsistent line endings then you are using the fixed version of velocity.

For a list of dependencies required by velocity see the doco at
. FYI, the current Ant build loads the jars in the geronimo\site\lib dir onto the classpath.

I don't know if velocity's project.xml file is up to date as they aren't doing builds with
maven yet AFAIK..

Looks like we should wait until velocity 1.5 is released as we are currently running from
a velocity 1.5 development build to get around some bugs.
