Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-3300) Upgrade Dojo to 0.9
Date Wed, 04 Jul 2007 14:23:05 GMT


Paul McMahan commented on GERONIMO-3300:

Since dojo 0.9 is incompatible with 0.4.x and is so technically different from it I think
we should try to get dojo 0.9 into the geronimo 2.0 release if at all possible, even if it
means going with beta level code.  I agree that using a beta could be risky.  But because
of the forward and backwards incompatibility situation between the 0.9 and 0.4.x apis dojo
developers will have to choose which level of dojo to program against, and I believe they
would almost always go with 0.9 since it's the future of dojo and ajax and the 0.4.x stream
will be stabilized

If we can't get 0.9 into the 2.0 release then I agree that upgrading to it in a maintenance
stream (2.0.1) could be disruptive to geronimo users unless we also leave 0.4.x in there.
  That could be accomplished by deploying the new version of dojo to a different context,
say /dojo.0.9,  or maybe /dojo/0.9 would be more clever... yeah I think that works better.
 The problem that this approach would create is the extra server footprint since the full
dojo library ain't small.

Whatever approach we take I think it would be prudent to go ahead and change the context of
that dojo library that's already in the server from /dojo to /dojo/0.4.3 so we have more flexibility
later.  We can do something clever so that apps that reference /dojo/dojo.js will get the
most recent version of dojo that's available in geronimo, whatever that happens to be.
