Subject [jira] Commented: (LEGAL-21) Geronimo mysql-roller-plugin
Date Tue, 22 Jul 2008 00:48:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-21?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12615483#action_12615483

Sam Ruby commented on LEGAL-21:
-------------------------------

I think the word "depend" in proposed Question a) is too broad.  A hard dependency that would
be difficult to remove would be controversial, but an fully optional, clearly marked, and
easily removed dependency is fine.

I believe that if we want to generalize this to the GPL, we need an abstraction layer, like
JDBC, as well as a credible alternative; as the plugin itself may need to be GPL.

>     * Can we have a Geronimo mysql-roller-plugin? It would allow Roller to run on Geronimo
on top of the MySQL database. By default Derby would be used, but this option would allow
users to choose MySQL instead. It would use Tranql, which has two classes importing MySQL
classes.
