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:

TODO

Building the Debian Package 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
