Description Stefan Bluhm 2023-04-20 06:32:36 UTC
Description of problem:

Uyuni requires the tomcat-juli.jar artifact. As tomcat-juli.jar is installed into /usr/share/tomcat/bin/tomcat-juli.jar and not (anymore?) into /usr/share/java, none of the standard build tools will find the required classes (i.e. build-classpath,  build-classpath-directory, build-jar-repository ).

Can you please provide a symlink 
ln -s -f %{bindir}/tomcat-juli.jar %{buildroot}%{libdir}/

or via %mvn_alias ?

If this is OK, i am also happy to provide the PR.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Tomcat 9.0.65 and 9.0.73

Expected result:
Tomcat for EPEL9 contains tomcat-juli in the resolvable classpath.

Comment 1 Coty Sutherland 2023-04-20 13:12:06 UTC
I took a quick look and the removal of that logic was intentional (as part of some maven cleanup), however it seemingly introduced a bug requiring that we add the jar back to the libdir. Thanks for the report!

The commit that removed it is at https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/tomcat/c/972b590988e15d6d82db951aa8b14a2ef06e0cc9?branch=epel9.

Please also note that the tomcat package will be retired from EPEL next month as it is available in RHEL. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2168636 for more details.

I took a quick look at rawhide and seems that this issue affects that branch too. Since tomcat was retired from EPEL, I've moved this issue over to rawhide to be fixed there.
