Subject [jira] Updated: (GERONIMO-3816) roller-mysql-database has mysql dependency
Date Sun, 10 Feb 2008 18:05:11 GMT


Peter Petersson updated GERONIMO-3816:

    Attachment: roller-mysql-database_lic_iss_res_080210.patch

This patch intend to reinstate the roller-mysql-database module by resolving the licensing

To prevent automatic download of the mysql connector the mysql-connector-java dependency is
disabled and the 
module is instead set up with a prerequisite on the connector. The prerequisite description
contains information 
on the licensing issue and instructions on what is needed to be done by the user for the module
to be used.

> The roller-mysql-database plugin has a hard dependency on MySQL. We have to remove this
for licensing reasons. See explanation below.
> I plan on disabling the building of the roller-mysql-database plugin as well as removing
the mysql dependency. We'll need to reach a decision on how we want to handle this long term.
