Subject Re: RTC don't ship any sun schemas or dtds - GERONIMO-2332
Date Mon, 21 Aug 2006 16:56:00 GMT
I've thought about this some more and have some major reservations  
about this approach.

- The generated code wont have apache headers, so we can't actually  
check in into svn.  There might be a way to fix this with a script of  
some kind.

- More seriously, this will eliminate traceability to the source  
schema.  Sun has in the past fixed errors in the schema without  
changing anything that can be recognized from the generated source.   
(I think they changed a date in a comment).  This is a major problem  

So, I think we need to keep the source schemas in svn.  One way to do  
this would be to move this module into the tck project and publish  
the binary jar from there.  If we found a way to change the headers  
we might be able to publish a source jar too.

So, I'm -0.999 on this proposal at the moment... I think we need to  
find a way to get the source schemas into svn.
