Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-2254) Create OSGi wrapper for JCR API 1.0 library
Date Tue, 11 Aug 2009 13:28:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-2254?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12741861#action_12741861

Jukka Zitting commented on JCR-2254:

Three more things:

* It would be good to include the JCR API version number right in the artifact id, like this:
"jcr-1.0-api". We're never going to release a bundle for JCR 2.0 (as it's already an OSGi
bundle), and having the version number in the artifact id makes it clearer that the real version
number refers to our bundling and any updates (we may need to release a patched version if
there's some problem) will not affect the bundled JCR 1.0 interfaces.

* It would be better to move this issue to the JCRSITE project that's best suited for issues
that don't clearly fit in any of the other Jira projects. I'd like to keep this JCR project
focused on the development of the Jackrabbit repository implementation (including everything
in jackrabbit/trunk).

* For the record, see LEGAL-50 for the issue where I'm asking ASF legal to formally clear
the Day spec license plus addendum as an OK license for distribution by an Apache project.
This is mostly just to complete the legal record and is not a blocker for releasing this JCR
API bundle. We have plenty of precedent in redistributing the JCR API both as-is and in repackaged

> 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.
