Description Mary Ellen Foster 2008-11-04 16:40:09 UTC
Spec URL:

cglib is a powerful, high performance and quality code generation library 
for Java. It is used to extend Java classes and implements interfaces 
at runtime.

Note: This package is loosely based on an existing JPackage package by Ralf Apel.

Comment 1 Mary Ellen Foster 2008-11-05 12:45:32 UTC
Updated spec, now builds properly in mock and is rpmlint clean.

Comment 2 Aaron S. Hawley 2008-11-06 08:08:51 UTC
I haven't done Java packages, but you should probably make /etc/maven/fragments/cglib a %conf.  rpmlint warns:

cglib.noarch: W: non-conffile-in-etc /etc/maven/fragments/cglib

Comment 3 Mary Ellen Foster 2008-11-24 14:08:29 UTC
Updated to flag maven depmap as "config" and to explain the purpose of the patch

Comment 5 Mary Ellen Foster 2008-12-09 16:39:45 UTC
Oops, the URL was wrong above. Note that I've also changed to use the latest greatest BuildRoot:

Comment 6 Fernando Nasser 2008-12-10 14:55:34 UTC
Can you use cglib 2.1.3 instead?  The 2.2 will conflict with things like Hibernate, JBoss AS etc.

In the meanwhile, I am contacting the communities mentioned above to check if they could certify their software with a cglib 2.2 as well.


Comment 7 Mary Ellen Foster 2008-12-10 15:38:34 UTC
Oops, I now notice that cglib 2.1.3 is already in jpackage:

What's the procedure for importing that into Fedora?

Comment 8 Mary Ellen Foster 2008-12-16 12:53:09 UTC
After a bit of further investigation, it seems that cglib 2.1.3 depends on a very old version of objectweb-asm. Fedora currently has packages for objectweb-asm (=version 3.1, October 2007) and asm2 (=version 2.2.3, April 2006), but cglib 2.1.3 depends on classes last defined in asm version 1.5.3, which was released in November 2004.

jpackage has a package for asm version 1.5.3 which could probably be imported quite easily as "asm1" or the like:

It's not very satisfying to be packaging all of these old libraries, though ... :)

Comment 9 Fernando Nasser 2009-01-20 16:25:01 UTC will soon have a cglib22 package with cglib 2.2 (which uses the objectweb-asm 3.0) package.  Interested? Can you use cglib 2.2 in place of 2.1.3?

Comment 10 Mary Ellen Foster 2009-01-28 12:56:15 UTC
I'd certainly prefer cglib 2.2 -- when the jpackage package appears, will/can a jpackage person submit it to Fedora or should I do that?

Comment 11 Jason Tibbitts 2009-07-10 17:36:07 UTC
So, nearly six months later, what is the status of this ticket?

Comment 12 Jason Tibbitts 2009-08-01 02:58:10 UTC
No response; closing.

Comment 13 Lubomir Rintel 2009-11-10 11:04:18 UTC
I'm not sure why was this closed, did it get stalled due to lack of reviewers? If it is the case, I can review this (and in any case, you can always mail fedora-devel-list or join #fedora-devel channel at freenode to find someone to review your packages, or exchange a review with someone else).

Mary, do you still plan getting this in? Please open a new ticket with current package or let me know if you no longer need the package.

Comment 14 Lubomir Rintel 2009-11-12 11:25:05 UTC
Review resubmitted here: bug #537066

Mary, feel free to steal the ticket/package if you like, I'd be happy if you maintained it.
