Description Lukas Zapletal 2010-12-08 09:49:15 UTC
Description of problem:

There is missing symlink in /usr/share/java to /usr/tomcat6/bin/tomcat6-juli.jar. This library is mandatory for some operations (like running jasper JSP precompiler). Without this link one cannot use build-jar-repository command to compose valid classpath (JULI libraries are missing).

Additional info:

Please add this link to the RPM. Its already in Fedora 12 

* Fri Mar 26 2010 Mary Ellen Foster <mefoster(at)gmail.com> 0:6.0.24-2
  - Add maven POMs and metadata
  - Link tomcat6-juli into /usr/share/java/tomcat6

and it should be very easy to backport this into RHEL6.

Comment 2 Lukas Zapletal 2010-12-08 10:11:46 UTC
Additional info: I was testing the version


Btw theres also a broken link log4j in the tomcat6-lib package.

[root@dell-pe700-01 ~]# rpm -ql tomcat6-lib | grep log4j

Comment 3 Lukas Zapletal 2010-12-08 10:13:40 UTC
The log4j thing was reported to Fedora and is fixed there. See bug 654660.

Comment 4 David Knox 2010-12-08 17:23:35 UTC
In RHEL-6, added link for log4j in libdir, fixed symlink to commons-collection also. Removed the log4j package and replaced with symlink.
