Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1845) if the build fails to download JARs for contrib/db, just skip its tests
Date Mon, 24 Aug 2009 09:49:59 GMT


Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-1845:

bq. The old one had some problems with the sanity check as the check needs the jar though.

Ahh OK.

bq. how should we handle if the jar can not be obtained? I would rather say the build must
fail asif we du a release build the jar will not be included. 

I think, ideally, If it's the nightly build that's running, the disposition should be robust
(ignored), else it should be brittle (like it is today).

I'm not sure about hosting the JARs.  The license for bdb-je is at
and for bdb
 I think these libs were LGPL'd before Oracle acquired Sleepycat, which was why we could not
host them, but I have no idea if Oracle's licensing would permit us to host/redistribute them.
 Maybe an inquiry on legal@ is the next step?  If the licensing allows it, I think the simplest
solution would be to check them in to our svn repository....

BDB JARs from  I think in such cases we should simply
skip contrib/db's tests, if it's the nightly build that's running, since it's a false positive
