== Building with free tools ==
=== java-gcj-compat-dev ===
Calling build/build.sh (which in turn calls ant) fails very early with:

{{{ init:

_buildmagic:modules:most:
BUILD FAILED

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: while resolving class: org.jboss.util.Objects
}}}
Any hints on why this happens would be appreciated.
Nevertheless the build succeeds in these subdirecories:
 * common/
 * jmx/
 * j2ee/
 * naming/

== TODO ==
 * complete the above table
 * use Debian versions of thirdparty packages, where available
 * package missing thirdparty stuff from the above table, that isn't already in Debian
 * use Debian's ''ant'' instead of the one shipped with JBoss
 * fix building with a free java compiler

== Building the Debian Package from Alioth SVN ==

= Building the packages from vcs =

== Building the Debian Package (jbossas5_5.1.0.GA-0.1) from GIT ==
 * This package uses the original ''build.sh'' script from the JBoss source tarball. It also uses maven do download a lot of dependencies. The downloaded maven artifacts are saved in /tmp/maven-repo . If you want to use a local network mirror of repo1.maven.org and/or repository.jboss.org please activate the ''0002-Use-a-local-network-maven-mirror.patch'' in ''debian/series'' and adjust the uri of the mirror in the patch.

 * Clone the repository
{{{
git clone git://git.debian.org/pkg-jboss/jbossas5.git
}}}
 * Set up the needed branches
{{{
git co upstream_jboss.org
git co master-5.1
}}}
 * Build the package
{{{
git-buildpackage --git-debian-branch=master-5.1 --git-upstream-branch=upstream_jboss.org --git-no-pristine
}}}

== Building the Debian Package (jbossas5) from GIT ==
 * Clone the archives with {{{git clone}}} or better with {{{gbp-clone}}}
{{{
gbp-clone git://git.debian.org/pkg-jboss/jbossas5-libs.git
gbp-clone git://git.debian.org/pkg-jboss/jbossas5.git
}}}
 * Build the jbossas5-libs package
{{{
gbp-sid
}}}
 * Install the jbossas5-libs package in your buildsystem. With a local repository add the repo to /var/cache/pbuilder/case-sid.cow/etc/apt/sources.list. and do
{{{
sudo cowbuilder --update --basepath=/var/cache/pbuilder/base-sid.cow
}}}

 * The jbossas5 package is an evil beast a the moment. First install openjdk-6-jre and ant that the sanity check in debian/rules has it's peace.
{{{
 apt-get install openjdk-6-jre ant
}}}
 * Build the package. If you use git-buildpackage and friends (as i do like described [[MatthiasSchmitz|here]]) run
{{{
 gbp-sid
}}}
otherwise install all Build-Depends and run
{{{
git-buildpackage
}}}

If you want to use a local network mirror of repo1.maven.org and/or repository.jboss.org please activate the 0002-Use-a-local-network-maven-mirror.patch in debian/series and adjust the uri of the mirror in the patch.

  • Clone the repository

git clone git://git.debian.org/pkg-jboss/jbossas5.git
  • Set up the needed branches

git co upstream_jboss.org
git co master-5.1
  • Build the package

git-buildpackage --git-debian-branch=master-5.1 --git-upstream-branch=upstream_jboss.org --git-no-pristine

Building the Debian Package (jbossas5) from GIT

  • Clone the archives with git clone or better with gbp-clone

gbp-clone git://git.debian.org/pkg-jboss/jbossas5-libs.git
gbp-clone git://git.debian.org/pkg-jboss/jbossas5.git
  • Build the jbossas5-libs package

gbp-sid
  • Install the jbossas5-libs package in your buildsystem. With a local repository add the repo to /var/cache/pbuilder/case-sid.cow/etc/apt/sources.list. and do

sudo  cowbuilder --update --basepath=/var/cache/pbuilder/base-sid.cow
  • The jbossas5 package is an evil beast a the moment. First install openjdk-6-jre and ant that the sanity check in debian/rules has it's peace.

 apt-get install openjdk-6-jre ant

  • Build the package. If you use git-buildpackage and friends (as i do like described here) run

 gbp-sid 

otherwise install all Build-Depends and run

git-buildpackage

Building the Debian Package (jboss4) from Alioth SVN

 (1) mkdir jboss && cd jboss
 (2) svn co svn://svn.debian.org/pkg-jboss/jboss4/trunk jboss4
 (3) wget http://switch.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/jboss/jboss-4.0.4.GA-src.tar.gz
 (4) tar zvxf jboss-4.0.4.GA-src.tar.gz
 (5) cd jboss4 && cp -rl ../jboss-4.0.4.GA-src/* .
 (6) debuild -us -uc
  1. Create a build dir
  2. Checkout debian package source
  3. Get JBoss 4.0.4 from http://labs.jboss.com/portal/jbossas/download

  4. Unpack the upstream source
  5. Copy (actually hardlink) the upstream source into the Debian package source
  6. Build the package

Older (maybe obsolete) JBoss 5 TODOs/plan

jbossas5

  • create a inofficial package jbossas5-libs with all jar files that are not packaged for Debian but needed for the app server - DONE
  • create a transitional package jbossas5 that (Build-)Depends: jbossas5-libs - partially DONE
  • build a minimal package that can be uploaded to main

joesnmp/opennms

Apache scout

The following packages might be needed for jbossas5 but the list must be checked again.

jacorb

istack-commons

rngom

txw

xsom

jaxb

  • the JAXB API is already in Debian: libjaxme-java
  • https://jaxb.dev.java.net/

  • blocked by codemodel, com.sun.xml.dtdparser?, istack-commons-runtime, istack-commons-tools, rngom, txw, xsom
  • Build-Depends: glassfish-activation, xml-commons-resolver1.1

Open bugs

We use BTS usertags with user pkg-jboss-maintainer@lists.alioth.debian.org to keep track of bugs.

  • ITPs and bugs concerning the packaging effort.

Thirdparty JARs

The JBoss source tarball contains several thirdparty packages under common/lib/ which need to be compiled from source for Debian. This list tries to keep track of the current status:
