Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 118612] New: IP clearance: Remove swingExtSrc
Date Thu, 17 Nov 2011 17:10:32 GMT

             Bug #: 118612
        Issue Type: TASK
           Summary: IP clearance: Remove swingExtSrc
    Classification: Code
           Product: external
           Version: OOO340m0
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: blocker
          Priority: P3
         Component: www

The swingExSrc archive in ext-sources
( has (probably, status is
somewhat unclear) an LGPL license and thus can not be used by AOO.

It is used by the rhino module to provide a java tree table widget.  Rhino
again is used in the scripting framework for the javascript editor/debugger.

I see two ways to keep the javascript scripting support:

1. Replace swingExSrc with the similar package that is available on It license seems to
be friendlier but still needs a review by a lawyer.

2. Update rhino from 1.5R5 to the current version (at the time of this writing)
1.7R3.  Its interface, however, has changed considerably.  Changes in the
scripting module are necessary.

As short-term solution I will remove the swingExSrc package and disable (but
not remove) rhino and the javascript part of the scripting module.
