Subject Tomcat-5.0.7 build fails behind firewall due to missing commons-daemon
Date Tue, 12 Aug 2003 07:27:23 GMT

when trying to build Tomcat-5.0.7 from scratch behind a firewall (using
http proxy) build fails due to missing commons-daemon:

Environment: Linux (SuSE 8.2)

     [echo] ========== Building: commons-daemon 

does not exist

The problem is that commons-daemon is neither part of the
Tomcat-5.0.7-src nor is it available as a release from but has to be downloaded
as a nightly build from
which means the filename changes and has to be built dynamically within

To make Tomcat-5.0.7 build.xml work when proxy.use=on either build.xml
has to be modified to download commons-daemon and unzip it into the
Tomcat-source-dir or commons-daemon has to be included into the

Making commons-daemon available as a release at or setting a symbolic link
like commons-daemon-current.tar.gz would of course reduce the effort
because the filename wouldn't have to be build dynamically.

Which solution is suggested ?

Best regards,
