dev-java/lucene[contrib]-3.6.2: build fails

dev-java/lucene-3.6.2 fails to build with USE="contrib":

I can confirm this bug with Java VM icedtea-bin-8

And I confirm that the dev-java/lucene[contrib]-3.5.0-r1 fails also though with a different error:

    [mkdir] Created dir: /dev/shm/portage/dev-java/lucene-3.5.0-r1/work/lucene-3.5.0/build/classes/test-framework
    [javac] Compiling 33 source files to /dev/shm/portage/dev-java/lucene-3.5.0-r1/work/lucene-3.5.0/build/classes/test-framework
    [javac] /dev/shm/portage/dev-java/lucene-3.5.0-r1/work/lucene-3.5.0/src/test-framework/java/org/apache/lucene/util/ error: package org.junit does not exist
    [javac] import org.junit.After;
    [javac]                 ^

Both failures are with Java VM icedtea-bin-8 which provides Java 1.8 just as your configuration that is oracle-jdk-bin-1.8....

I have no idea if these errors appear when Java < 1.8...

Anyway IMHO the current dev-java/lucene-3.5.0-r1 and dev-java/lucene-3.6.2-r1 are really broken especially the last one that has the src_prepare() phase duplicated....

Both versions if contrib flag is used require icu4j 4.8 and this is no longer available in portage, so the contrib icu will not compile...

Using doc flag also doesn't work properly....

Anyway... I did rewrote almost from scratch both ebuilds: dev-java/lucene-3.5.0-r1 and dev-java/lucene-3.6.2-r1 and made them r2...

I am uploading them here both as a patch and the full ebuild, so other could use it till this is fixed in portage...

Should I create a new bug for a version bump on both versions?

This is the patch to make icu4j > 50 to work with lucene.

This should go into files folder of the package in portage.

The patch is taken from Fedora -

See explanation here:

The patch to the lucene-3.5.0-r1.ebuild with the fixes mentioned above.

This version of lucene (slot 3.5) is needed for the dev-java/netbeans-ide-8.2-r1

Also requires the lucene_contrib_icu4j_v50.patch
Comment 5 PhobosK 2018-01-06 17:46:46 UTC
Created attachment 513548 [details]

This is the full ebuild of the newly proposed for portage r2 - lucene-3.6.2-r2.ebuild

This is the full ebuild of the newly proposed for portage r2 - lucene-3.5.0-r2.ebuild
Comment 7 PhobosK 2018-01-06 17:53:05 UTC
All proposed ebuilds work fine with icedtea-bin-8, but should be tested with other Java VM too.

All USE flags - sources, docs, contrib - work OK too...

Tests are still disabled/restricted since all ICU modules tests in contrib fail. All other tests work OK....

Please test these with other VMs and different combinations of the USE flags...

Gentoo Devs, 
Can you please advice if these ebuilds are OK and could go to official portage? :)
Comment 8 Fabio Rossi 2021-01-10 18:14:18 UTC
I am trying your ebuild for lucene-3.6.2-r2 but there are two issues:

1) after copying the patch and ebuild in my personal overlay __mine__, one dep is still missing and it is not in portage:

# emerge -pv lucene::__mine__

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "dev-java/ant-nodeps:0".
(dependency required by "dev-java/lucene-3.6.2-r2::__mine__" [ebuild])
(dependency required by "lucene::__mine__" [argument])

2) I have looked around for ant-nodeps in build.xml, it seems is not used, so after having removed the dep from the ebuild, I get the following error:

    [mkdir] Created dir: /var/tmp/portage/dev-java/lucene-3.6.2-r2/work/lucene-3.6.2/build/test-framework/classes/java
    [javac] Compiling 51 source files to /var/tmp/portage/dev-java/lucene-3.6.2-r2/work/lucene-3.6.2/build/test-framework/classes/java

Comment 9 Fabio Rossi 2021-01-10 18:21:58 UTC
I have found a further patch from Debian, I am attaching a modified ebuild and a modified patch for Gentoo

    dev-java/lucene: add new lucene versions for scilab
    At the moment this only builds with USE="-modules"
    because we are missing a dependency. Will add the
    keywords if/when I get the dependency working
    Also added a fixed ebuild for version 3.6.2,
    the one in ::gentoo fails with USE="contrib"
    see linked bug
