Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4415) need to document/fix/remove build.xml dependencies on javascript
Date Sat, 22 Sep 2012 01:19:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-4415?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13460984#comment-13460984

Hoss Man commented on LUCENE-4415:
----------------------------------

bq. but in my opinion the only way to go here is to
remove the js.jar from our jenkins' servers JDK installation, so we KNOW it works.

this is why i was hoping to get uwe's sign off -- i know he's looked into this in depth before,
and decided it made sense to add it to the FreeBSD jenkins machine instead of changing the
build -- IIRC he said it was considered a "bug" in the FreeBSD java packaging and so us ading
hte jar as "ok" because that's what all users should do too -- but i can't remember for certain.
 if that is really the case: then we should just resolve with documentation, if not: we should
fix out build.xml files once and for all not to assume it will always exist.

> 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)
