Subject Re: Plugin download fails from
Date Wed, 23 Jul 2008 12:55:56 GMT


It looks like you are trying to install a plugin into the framework 
assembly.  Which plugin are you trying to install?

There are several issues at play here.

1) dependencies with a version such as 6.0.14-G614585 (ie. anything 
xx.xx.xx-Gxxxxxx) is a geronimo specific dependency.  These are items 
for which we perform a private build and check the resultant image into 
our svn under /repository.

2) Normally, these dependencies are already included in the server 
image.  For example, every assembly (with the exception of framework) 
already includes jasper jar that you reference below.  The jasper jar 
itself should be included in the geronimo jasper plugin 
(org.apache.geronimo.configs/jasper//car) and should be added to the 
framework repository when that plugin is installed.

3) Any other plugin with a dependency on jasper should have a dependency 
on the jasper car.

4) There is no public repository that contains these jars but as 
mentioned above for a running server they should be installed via the 
appropriate car.
