Subject [jira] Commented: (JCRSITE-19) Create OSGi wrapper for JCR API 1.0 library
Date Wed, 12 Aug 2009 08:32:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCRSITE-19?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12742256#action_12742256

Marcel Reutegger commented on JCRSITE-19:

> We have plenty of precedent in redistributing the JCR API both as-is and in repackaged

I don't see a problem with redistributing the JCR API jar file as-is, however the addendum
does not seem to allow repackaging. It says:

"In addition to the permissions granted under the Specification
    License, Day Management AG hereby grants to You a perpetual,
    worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge, royalty-free, irrevocable
    license to reproduce, publicly display, publicly perform,
    sublicense, and distribute unmodified copies of the Content
    Repository for Java Technology API (JCR 1.0) Java Archive (JAR)
    file ("jcr-1.0.jar") and to make, have made, use, offer to sell,
    sell, import, and otherwise transfer said file on its own or
    as part of a larger work that makes use of the JCR API."

The part that worries me in the context of this issue is:

"[...] unmodified copies of the Content Repository for Java Technology API (JCR 1.0) Java
Archive (JAR) file ("jcr-1.0.jar") [...]"

Is it possible to create a bundle that includes the jcr jar file as is?

> To use the JCR API in OSGi frameworks it would make perfect sense to have separate OSGi
bundles providing the API. For JCR 2.0 the library will come as an OSGi bundle. For JCR 1.0
the library is not an OSGi bundle and needs to be wrapped.
> For this, Jackrabbit should provide a simple wrapper bundle around the JCR library and
export the respective API.
> This wrapper project would be part of the jackrabbit/commons proper and mainly be a service
of Jackrabbit to the OSGi users out there.
