Subject Re: Experiments building security2
Date Fri, 13 Jan 2006 13:32:50 GMT
I think the immediate goal should be to make the 'security2' code a
replacement for 'security'.

Since security is part of the componentized-build bootstrapping code
(i.e. required to run the compiler in self-hosting mode) then we need to
integrate the security2 build script with the classlib/make/build.xml.

Once that is building we can use the security2 code exclusively, and
merge across anything else from 'security' that is worth keeping, before
retiring that module.

Some of the other issues below are interesting, but not blockers for
making the code usable:

Here's my prioritised list:

2. Resolving http://mail-archives.apache.org...
The security2 code contains more than the security component calls for
(there is some crypto and x-net code in there too!)  This is great!
Let's split it up so that they build separately.

6. Something else
Then fix up the classlib/make/build.xml to build security2 code into the
deploy layout, ensuring that the result passes all the tests.

4. Binding Jar verification to security2
5. Selecting one of Base64 de/encoders and ASN.1 de/encoders
Merging the code and getting to an integrated runtime.

1. Closing the issue with Javadocs and updating the sources
3. Renaming com.openintel packages
These are good to keep going, but not critical to ensuring we get the
best of both class library contributions workig together.

What do you think?
