Subject [PATCH] connector SRPM does not build mod_webapp
Date Fri, 03 May 2002 13:33:38 GMT
Dear developers,

installation of tomcat has been greatly improved since last November. Thanks
for your effort. Nevertheless I had troubles when building the apache
connector modules utilizing the appropriate SRPM.

I prefer mod_webapp instead of mod_jk. But the .spec file of the SRPM did
not include code to build mod_webapp. So I had to add some missing statements
and attached a patch for the .spec file. The added code extracts an APR
snapshot-archive if available or retrieves APR via CVS. (You can either grab a
snapshot prior to compiling or rely on CVS.) Then mod_webapp is compiled and an
apropriate RPM created.

Since there are some properties to be set before compiling mod_webapp can be
successfully made, I included another patch to the source-directory of
"webapp/" that will create the file "". The defined properties in
this file are applicable when junit has been installed as RPM
( and when using tomcat4.
So if anyone uses my patches be sure to adapt  "tomcat-connectors.webapp-
properties.patch" to your requirements.
