Subject Re: Samples for 2.1.2 - one final push
Date Wed, 17 Sep 2008 17:30:52 GMT

Grrr .... every time I hope to get a samples image up for vote I 
discover (or rediscover) some issues that should be resolved.

Here are the latest issues:
- Most of the samples when run include a Geronimo header with links that 
are supposed to take you to javadocs and xref for that sample.  These 
don't work (and from what I see I'm not sure if they were ever fully 
functional).  So these should probably be removed if I can't find a way 
to quickly implement them.
- There are still numerous dependency versions referenced throughout the 
sample poms.  I think these need to be consolidated into a dependency 
management section in the top level pom or perhaps move our top level 
dependency from genesis to geronimo.  Initially the versions were 
distributed so that samples could be built independently but we now 
require an initial top level build of samples.
