Red Hat Enterprise Linux (or RHEL) - Packaging of the NetBeans

Contents


Overview

This page accumulates info about effort in the scope of the EPEL to create software packages of the NetBeans that complement the Fedora-based Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and its compatible spinoffs such as CentOS or Scientific Linux.

Goals

A NetBeans IDE 6.1 configuration with reduced set of the modules to limit number of external dependencies is intended to be packaged for RHEL.

Assumptions


Analysis

Required Software Packages

The tables below establish relations between required software package, RHEL 5 Package (if any) and owner(s) of corresponding package in Fedora (if it is useful). Both build-time dependencies and run-time dependencies for the chosen configuration of the NetBeans have been taken into account.

Notation

#1 Public CentOS package repository has been used to investigate accessibility of the software on the RHEL 5 platform.

#2 Fedora/EPEL is upstream for RHEL or it can be used as the upstream.

DONE in cells of the column Current Status means that target is reached and any additional actions aren't required.

For NetBeans Platform

Software Package RHEL 5 Package Owner Current Status Comments
#3 OpenJDK 6 java-1.6.0-openjdk 2 lkundrak,
co-maintainer: langel (Awaiting Review)
DONE
{{{1}}}
#4 Ant 1.7.1
ant-1.6.5-2jpp.2.src.rpm 1 NEED TO BE UPGRADED
Showstopper:
a) EPEL is not an upstream for the RHEL from viewpoint of the Ant software, AFAIU RHEL itself provides it by using JPackage effort.
b) EPEL/FAQ says:
Q: Does EPEL replace packages provided within Red Hat Enterprise Linux or layered products?
A: No

Therefore, we can't use "traditional" Fedora procedure to upgrade version up to 1.7.1.
Subpackages of Ant are also required: ant-junit, ant-nodeps, ant-trax
#5 JUnit 3.8.2 junit-3.8.2-3jpp.1.src.rpm 1 DONE
#6 swing-layout 1.0
NOT EXISTS 1
lkundrak
He is not in both lists EPEL/ContributorStatusNo and EPEL/ContributorStatusNo
He is (co-)maintainer of 129 packages

Communication with the package owner is needed.
All required packages exist.
Can we avoid this dependency if OpenJDK is installed?

#7 javahelp2 2.0.05

Status

Suspended.

Showstopper: There is no package for Apache Ant 1.7.x in the RHEL, but a package for Ant 1.6 exists.
Hence, it is impossible to package the NetBeans 6.x for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux until the "new" version of the Ant will be included in the RHEL.
