Subject RE: [Tomcat 4.0] Proposed Change in Build Scripts
Date Thu, 01 Feb 2001 21:46:18 GMT
As long as this works with sandboxing different versions of the system, it
should be fine.
That is, jakarta-tomcat-4.0 will use, by default, the ant in
../jakarta-ant/dist and the servlet api in ../jakarta-servletapi-4/dist, and
so on.

Subject: [Tomcat 4.0] Proposed Change in Build Scripts

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:

        build/                <-- Build destination for Tomcat
        dist/                  <-- Dist destinatino for Tomcat
            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

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.
