Description Andrew Overholt 2007-01-22 20:48:19 UTC
Spec URL:
Description: ECJ is the Java bytecode compiler of the Eclipse Platform.  It is also known as the JDT Core batch compiler.

This package is somewhat a duplicate of the existing eclipse-ecj package (a sub-package of the eclipse SRPM).  Due to developments in gcc, the gcc SRPM will soon need to BuildRequires:  eclipse-ecj.  This large dependency (and build loop) is undesirable so this separate ecj package was created.  eclipse-ecj will cease to exist when this package is included.

This package cannot go into Extras due to the gcc requirement on it.

Comment 1 Andrew Overholt 2007-01-23 19:32:08 UTC
After thinking about this some more and discussing with Ben Konrath and Tom
Fitzsimmons, I've decided to close this request.  We couldn't come up with any
actual benefits to having the separate ecj package.  This SRPM can be used by
those wanting quick turnaround on ecj changes, although these are not very likely.
