Description Thomas Fitzsimmons 2006-12-14 23:42:50 UTC
For the proprietary JDK packages I'd like a way to cleanly disable repacking
jars.  (For various reasons, we install the JDK jars under /usr/lib, in
arch-specific directories, so there is no need to adjust their contents'
timestamps).  I could use a hack like this:

# HACK: disable brp-java-repack-jars
%define __os_install_post    \
    /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/brp-compress \
    %{!?__debug_package:/usr/lib/rpm/redhat/brp-strip %{__strip}} \
    /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/brp-strip-static-archive %{__strip} \
    /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/brp-strip-comment-note %{__strip} %{__objdump} \
    /usr/lib/rpm/brp-python-bytecompile \

but I would prefer something like:

%define _disable_jar_repacking 1

where %__os_install_post would contain:

    %{!?_disable_jar_repacking:/usr/lib/rpm/redhat/brp-java-repack-jars} \

Will be in the next version of redhat-rpm-config; if you want it backported for
RHEL5, reopen

Mechanism to disable is
  %define __jar_repack 0
in the spec file

Comment 2 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2007-06-29 18:08:35 UTC
I would like this backported to RHEL-5 so that I can avoid repack attempts on
signed jars in the JDK packages.

Comment 3 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2007-06-29 19:05:06 UTC
I have found a way to avoid running brp-java-repack-jars, by adding:

%define __os_install_post %{nil}

at the top of the spec file but it would be preferable to disable only the jar
repacking script.

Adding patrickm@redhat.com to the cc list as the manager of the disabled user fitzsim@redhat.com who reported this bug

Comment 5 Jeremy West 2009-04-22 02:15:06 UTC
Thomas and Jeremy,

We've had a similar RFE filed by Nortel:

I intentially filed that bug as it's asking for a more generic way to disable not just brp-java-repack-jars, but also brp-python-bytecompile.  Should we close this one as a dup?


Comment 6 Caolan McNamara 2009-11-18 10:20:52 UTC
My efforts to backport OOo 3.1.1 to RHEL-5 also re-trigger the problem of
i.e. reordering the order of MANIFEST.MF in the .jar file -> no help search available, where the only fix is to disable the jar repacking, which is hard in RHEL-5

Marking bugs as duplicate of another bug which is not visible outside RedHat is not very useful.
