Subject Re: [VOTE] apache-empire-db-2.0.4-incubating andapache-empire-struts2-ext-1.0.4-incubating release
Date Wed, 17 Sep 2008 08:31:11 GMT
Hi Henning,

thanks for your vote. 
Here are a few answers to your comments:

Testing is currently performed by running the two example applications provided with the distribution,
which contain various tasks. Each of them is run once for each supported database, and the
logs are checked. This has to be further automated of course with proper unit tests. 

We deliberately desinged the build.xml supplied with the distribution that it will build a
jar without a version number, assuming that people will build the jar only if they have made
changes to the code (why would anyone just build it?). And if they have made changes then
the version number is undefined. IMO only the official build should contain the version number.
Disagree?

With the struts-extentions we're in a dilemma. It won't build without servlet-api.jar and
jsp-api.jar. There is an info file that informs the user about the requirement for these two
jars.
Does anyone have an idea how to deal with this except using maven? Can we expect all users
to use maven for building the project and the examples?

I very much appreciate if the other voters would not reject or abstain from voting the struts-extentions
just for the build problem concering the servlet-api.jar and jsp-api.jar. We have discussed
this issue with the previous release candidate and there were no objections on the way we
solved this now (i.e. providing an information file). I have already asked for alternatives
but no one suggested a different solution.

BTW: Here's my +1 for both distributions (although non-binding).
