Subject Java EE 5 sandbox
Date Thu, 02 Nov 2006 17:18:57 GMT

It appears that sandbox/javaee5 is the location that we should be using 
to integrate various EE 5 items until 1.2 is released.  Therefore, I 
thought I would post some information that I've learned (and problems 
that I've encountered) here since I supposed others are or soon will be 
doing the same thing.  Perhaps somebody has some information that might 
help get around some of problems listed below (such as when Jetty 
snapshots might be published?).

First, this is a feature branch. To use it you must first build trunk to 
  populate your local repository.   Next you must checkout and build it.

However, in doing the last step you'll hit some problems:
-  The Jetty 6.1 snapshots are not published anywhere yet (at least not 
anywhere I've been able to find them).  Therefore, you will need to 
build Jetty 6.1 locally.  Can somebody related to both Geronimo and 
Jetty help us to get the Jetty 6.1 snapshots published?
Building Jetty:
- You can check out Jetty from 
    Jetty requires cvs to build (in case you don't already have it). 
For me the build failed because of test failures but it appeared to 
create the jetty jars that we need.

After building Jetty you should be ready to build the javaee5 branch. 
Of course, this build requires JDK 1.5

-  Next I hit a problem building javaee5.  Apparently there have been 
some changes in Jetty since the original integration in the branch.  It 
appears that the Jetty Session object may have changed.  Here is the 
error I received:
[INFO] Compilation failure


cannot find symbol
symbol  : constructor Session(<nulltype>,java.lang.String)
location: class org.mortbay.jetty.servlet.AbstractSessionManager.Session

I then spoke with David Jencks and he told me the revision of Jetty that 
he used when he first created the branch.  That was revision  1064.  So, 
I checked out this Jetty revision but with this one the build fails 
earlier with this error ....
2006-11-02 11:48:40.687::WARN:  failed 
org.mortbay.jetty.NCSARequestLog@79717e Cannot write log directory C:\tmp

I'll let you know as I resolve these issues in case you too need to work 
on the JavaEE5 branch.
