Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-2332) RTC Put the generated xmlbeans files for the j2ee 1.4 schemas in svn in a spec module so we don't need the schemas in svn at all

Alan Cabrera commented on GERONIMO-2332:
----------------------------------------

While I understand the problem that this is trying to solve, I do not agree with the way we
are trying to solve it.  I think we should just get permission from Sun to redistribute. 
That said, here is my opinion, which I *strongly* hold:

These files must not be put into specs.  They are a technology descision that was made by
the Geronimo project and have no place in the technology agnostic spec jar.  These files need
to be placed into new jars like geronimo-xmlbeans-j2ee-mumbojumbo.

I am willing to discuss this issue but be prepared for me to be slightly instransigent on
this.

> See GERONIMO-2307.  It seems that the option with the least legal exposure is to not
distribute and sun schema files and not have any in our svn.  This is a proposed spec module
that uses a m2 profile to pull the schemas from suns website (where they are freely available),
run xmlbeans on them, and remove the copies of the schemas that xmlbeasn helpfully tries to
include in the output.  We can then check this stuff into svn.
> A normal non-profile build then just builds these sources into a jar.  We can replace
the xmlbeans step in j2ee-schema with a geronimo dependency on this new spec jar.
