Subject [jira] Commented: (HARMONY-6546) [classlib] Make JARs available to (central) Maven repository
Date Tue, 08 Jun 2010 21:42:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-6546?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12876818#action_12876818

Mark Hindess commented on HARMONY-6546:


Sounds interesting but I'm not sure I understand the use cases for it.  It might be a good
idea to explain the anticipated usage on the dev list to see if you can convince others to
help progress this idea.  Some of the jars are quite tightly coupled with the portlibrary,
vmi, etc. so would be difficult/impossible to deploy on a non-Harmony compatible VM.

I'm curious how platform dependent jars - and corresponding native dlls - can be managed in
maven repositories.

> Occasionally, one wants to compile and test an application against different JREs. (Doing
this exposed HARMONY-6533, for example.) In the Java world, alas, this is quite difficult
as the JRE's JARs are typically not available in a central (Maven) repository - in stark contrast
to the majority of libraries out there. It would thus be great if the Harmony project would
make the JRE's JARs available to Maven central. (With appropriate qualifiers, of course, if
the JARs differ across operating systems.)
> P.S.: If the OSGi bundles are already available in a publicly-available p2 repository,
consider this issue semi-closed; Maven can interface with p2.
