Description Thomas Matthijs (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-09-08 08:19:59 UTC
Following the new java policy, packages shouldn't rely on packed jars, dependencies need to be added on our own packages and used.

these are the dependencies of aqua-data-studio.

i resolved nearly all of them. one big problem i've found is db2java.jar. i asked ibm where to download a standalone jdbc for db2 version 7.2 and they told me the following:

In 7.2, this would need to come from a DB2 client.  Please see Paul's note


Has to come fro ma client in V7.2 - -but they are not allowed to do that --
it is against the license


dont know how to resolve this issue. for version 8.x one is able to download a standalone package of the jdbc drivers.
Comment 2 Jan Brinkmann (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-02-04 10:40:05 UTC
i think we should simply remove this package from the tree, it's hardmasked for other reasons and we've no possibility to replace the jdbc driver for db2 with a portage own version.

removed aqua-data-studio from the tree, it was hardmasked an there is no possiblity to remove the packed jar issue. upstream hasn't done anything to resolve the other issues, so it's gone now.
