Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-3816) roller-mysql-database has mysql dependency
Date Mon, 11 Feb 2008 07:24:08 GMT


David Jencks commented on GERONIMO-3816:

I applied the patch in rev 620430 with  some text changes in the poms and README.  

I tried to make the mysql dependency optional but maven tries to download it anyway.  If we
can make it optional then our build won't even need the jar: the only function is to get the
dependency into the plugin dependency list.

Although it would be better to get "optional" to work I think the current state is OK to release.

> 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.
