Attachments: New ebuild to build velocity from source jars

Description Thomas Matthijs (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-09-08 08:23:41 UTC
Following the new java policy, packages shouldn't rely on packed jars, dependencies need to be added on our own packages and used.

- that is the main problem of this bug. it seems to be a lot of work to build it from source. it is available but werken-xpath uses very old versions of libraries which are needed to compile the project. it asked the developers to update their project to make sure one can compile it with todays libraries, but they said that they wont do it. they said to me i should ask the velocity team to remove the deprecated library, i did that but there is no response email since yet. we could provide a binary ebuild for werken-xpath, but if you use the version which is available on you're  not able to compile velocity.

I just added werken-0.9.4-beta to portage. This was based on the work done by  
I should be able to commit a new revision that no longer uses bundled jars in  
the next day or two.
