Subject [jira] [Updated] (LUCENE-4415) need to document/fix/remove build.xml dependencies on javascript
Date Sat, 22 Sep 2012 01:50:07 GMT


Hoss Man updated LUCENE-4415:

    Attachment: LUCENE-4415-option2.patch

Updated patch: nows uses ivy to fetch bsf as well, and forces ant to use the BSF engine instead
of the built n javax.script engine.

I'm not sure if this works "better" then my last patch, but i can say that when i butchered
the rhino.jar in my openjdk setup, the build still worked find with this patch.

One thing i forgot to mention before: no idea what the licenses for BSF/rhino are, or how
using them in this way affects us.

> Radim Kolar pointed out on the solr-user mailing list that he was unable to build Solr
on his FreeBSD machine due to the use of {{<script language="javascript"... />}} tags
in the ant build file, and the lack of javascript by default in his Java install.  There was
no clear indication that he should need anything else.
> It seems like prior to releasing 4.0, we should do one of the following:
> 1) find a way to remove the dependency on using javascript in the build.xml files (ie:
our own custom ant target written in java?)
> 2) use ivy to ensure we have the rhino jar in a classpath we pass to {{<script>}}
tag (it appears we already do something similar for pegdown)
> 3) update lucene/BUILD.txt and solr/README.txt to make it clear that the rhino js.jar
is a build requirement (and link to a wiki somewhere that provides tips on how to install
it in ant if your JVM doesn't include it)
> (Assigning to Uwe in hopes that he has some inspiration, i know he's familiar with this
scripting deficiency on FreeBSD)
