java/63511: bsd.java.mk 2.0: testers needed

System: FreeBSD arabica.esil.univ-mrs.fr 5.2.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE #0: Fri Feb 27 11:36:17 CET 2004 XXXX@XXXXX.COM :/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/ASSIMILATED i386


The FreeBSD Java community has started an effort to improve the current
framework for Java-based ports. The main objective is the automation of JDK/JRE
build and run dependency checking.

The original version was aimed to ease the life of porters. Although it has
proved to be useful and reliable to a great extend, we are currently working on
a new version. We intend to reach a high degree of flexibility to cope with the
recent increase of available JDK/JRE flavors. Furthermore, the new version will
be easier to maintain, which means improved reliability, and hopefully more
frequent updates.

For more information on the subject, please read:
http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ~hquiroz/freebsd/bsd.java.mk-2.0.html

This PR is to centralize testing efforts regarding bsd.java.mk 2.0.

I have packaged the latest development release so it may be installed easily on
any system, and also deinstalled easily with no hurt to the system. So I ask
any volunter to install and test it for as many Java ports as you can. Only
this way we may claim bsd.java.mk 2.0 stable enough to be commited. I would
really like to have this commited before 5.3-RELEASE which is expected to be a
decisive release (becoming -STABLE branch BTW).

You will find a list of all (known) Java ports:
http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ~hquiroz/freebsd/bsd.java.mk-2.0-ports.html

For each one, it is indicated whether or not the port installs successfully
with bsd.java.mk 2.0 (and the possible reasons why it does not install).
Please report your success at installing any of the port that are not yet
marked as 'OK'. Also, please report any failure at installing a Java port with
bsd.java.mk 2.0.

Failure reports should be sent as follow-ups to this PR whereas success
notification should be sent directly to me: XXXX@XXXXX.COM .
Please read the current status of a port before sending a success report: try
not to send success report for a port that is already marked as 'OK'.

As it the case for any development stage, take note that this is UNSTABLE
software so you test it at your own risks.


- Download the latest release from
http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ~hquiroz/freebsd/bsd.java.mk-2.0.html
- untar
- make install
- (re)install any Java port and possibly report success or failure

Synopsis: bsd.java.mk 2.0: testers needed

Responsible-Changed-From-To: freebsd-java->glewis
Responsible-Changed-By: glewis
Responsible-Changed-When: Thu Apr 1 17:02:25 PST 2004
Responsible-Changed-Why:
I'll take this.

Herve, if you haven't found any subsequent problems lets just take the
bull by the horns and commit this. Given the testing its gotten I think
we can deal with any minimal fallout.

Greg,

I am ready. I will go back home in a couple of hours. Then I will be
ready to provide hotfixes if anything breaks during the weekend (if my
DSL connection doesn't break either). AFAICT, there should be no problem
with version 2.0, but maybe some minor bugs with some very-specific
use cases...

Herve
