Description rudi 2004-02-18 18:59:02 EST

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040115

Description of problem:
The current subversion packages do not build the Java bindings (javahl).
Having libsvnjavahl.* plus svnjavahl.jar available would make it much
easier to package subclipse, the subversion plugin for Eclipse. Right
now there's no choice but to include the subversion sources, which
of course sucks.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install subversion
2. Look for libsvnjavahl and co.


Actual Results:  No bindings

Expected Results:  Bindings should be installed (or should be
available through e.g. a
subversion-java subpackage)

Additional info:

I have no clue which standards for spec files would apply to Java
bindings, but I'd be glad to test or (given enough pointers/input)
work on patches.
Comment 1 Joe Orton 2004-02-19 04:10:26 EST
Well, since we don't ship a JDK, this would mean getting the
Subversion Java bindings working with GCJ.  I doubt anyone has tried
this before.
Comment 2 Joe Orton 2004-02-19 04:37:53 EST
This doesn't look trivial, it needs someone with Java/GCJ expertise to
get do the legwork upstream first.
Comment 3 rudi 2005-03-07 17:06:16 EST
This should be doable now:

Comment 4 Joe Orton 2005-03-08 15:54:41 EST
Anthony has provided a patch to subversion which fixes this side of
things, but the code is triggering an ecj compiler crash on IA64, it
seems, which will block progress.
Comment 5 Rudi Chiarito 2005-03-24 11:41:25 EST
Could this be enabled in Raw Hide for all architectures except IA64?
This is simply making it harder to provide SVN support to Eclipse.
At the same time as the ecj bug gets fixed, a subclipse RPM could at
least get some exposure and testing on other platforms. Right now
an architecture that very few people use is preventing that from

Have I been melodramatic enough?
Comment 6 Joe Orton 2005-04-13 14:30:51 EDT
Yes, seems reasonable; done in Raw Hide on everything except ia64. 

bug 154700 filed for the ecj issue on ia64.
