Subject [Tomcat 4.0] Proposed Change in Build Scripts
Date Thu, 01 Feb 2001 17:30:19 GMT
There is movement in the various Jakarta subprojects towards modifying
build scripts so that "build" and "dist" targets are created *within*
the top-level source directory, rather than "up and over" the way they
are now.  For Tomcat 4.0, that would mean you'd end up with the
following directory structure:

    jakarta-tomcat-4.0
        build/                <-- Build destination for Tomcat
        dist/                  <-- Dist destinatino for Tomcat
        catalina/
            build/            <-- Build destination for Catalina portion

            dist/              <-- Dist destination for Catalina portion

        (and so on for other subdirectories).

When executing the Tomcat you just built, the only difference is that
you would set CATALINA_HOME to point at "jakarta-tomcat-4.0/build" or
"jakarta-tomcat-4.0/dist" instead of "../build/tomcat-4.0" or
"../dist/tomcat-4.0".

I propose to change all of the build scripts (and associated README
files) to reflect this new structure, in time for the next beta release.

Comments?  Thoughts?  Questions?

Craig
