Subject JTC and Tomcat 4
Date Tue, 02 Oct 2001 04:40:20 GMT

As some of you may have noticed, Tomcat 4 is starting to depend on some
modules from the J-T-C repository. The problem is that it creates in some
cases some circular dependencies for some build options. The number of the
dependencies is also expected to go up in the future, including: JK, the new
Java HTTP/1.1 connector, the util package, and the webapp connector.

There are 3 solutions that we can use:
- Duplicate the code. Given the amount of code, I'm -1 with that solution.
- Integrate building these components into the Tomcat 4 build process.
That's probably the most elegant solution, but unfortunately it's tricky to
pull that off (and I tried ...).
- Put the JARs for these modules in the Tomcat 4 CVS (the lib directory
looks like a good candidate for this), based on stable (and tagged or
branched) versions of each component.

I would choose the 3rd solution, since it is simpler, while getting the job
