Subject Re: Donation of JAXP 1.3 Sources to Apache
Date Tue, 12 Oct 2004 15:53:18 GMT
A couple of comments:
- Please cc: commons-dev@xml.apache.org, since xml-commons is the
actual repository that holds the JAXP code.

- Yay!  Great progress all, both Xerces/Xalan folks for coordinating,
and Sun folks for getting the process unstuck.  8-)

- Both Elliotte's and Clay's questions below are important.  If someone
familiar with the code could comment on:  For either the main trunk, or
a temporary working branch for integration:

-- What JVM's will this code compile on?  Version/Vendors?

-- What JVM's will this code run on?  Version/Vendors?

We need to *clearly* document which versions this stuff works on, and
should conditionally compile or something if it won't compile on at
least 1.3 (since we still have a lot of older JDK version users here).

My knee-jerk reaction is also to hope that it will compile & run on
both recent Sun and IBM JVMs at least before we put this on the main
trunk: we should really try to be JVM-vendor agnostic.  (anyone still
working on kaffe?  8-)
