Subject Re: Dojo Toolkit inclusion to Geronimo
Date Thu, 14 Sep 2006 06:45:23 GMT

Thanks again for finding time to look at the patch. Sorry to hear that 
it didn’t worked out smoothly in Safari. I agree with you that we should 
find a better way to include/checkin Dojo in G. I decided to include the 
Dojo source in the patch to make it easier for people like you who want 
to look at it without doing additional work like downloading some 
distribution. Your suggestion of expanding the Dojo files upon build is 
fine but I think checking in Dojo as a separate module (webapp) as 
suggested by Paul has an advantage of being reused by other webapps 
deployed in G simply by making the webapp’s parent the Dojo module. 
Furthermore, I was able to verify that this works. I’m still open for 
other suggestions but if we are left with these 2 options I’ll give +1 
to checking in Dojo as a separate module. Any thoughts?

Best wishes,
