kawa: Please migrate from tomcat6 to tomcat7
Last modified: 2014-06-19 02:59:09 EDT
We want to transition from tomcat6 to tomcat7 in Fedora. By depending on tomcat6 kawa it is successfully blocking the mentioned transition.
The following is the list of kawa dependencies affecting the transition (the list is not guarranteed to be complete):
Pleasee update kawa to use tomcat7 instead of tomcat6. Thank you.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.
(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
More information and reason for this action is here:
This affects me too. Trying to install kawa on a fresh Fedora 19 alpha install gives me:
--> Running transaction check
---> Package kawa.i686 1:1.11-5.fc19 will be installed
--> Processing Dependency: servlet25 for package: 1:kawa-1.11-5.fc19.i686
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: 1:kawa-1.11-5.fc19.i686 (fedora)
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
I'll have a look later.
And I also welcome your help!
The requires servlet25 correspond to Tomcat 6, which is not available in Fedora. You should migrate to using "servlet3" instead (package tomcat-servlet-3.0-api).
In the best case there will be no other changes to kawa required. Unfortunately servlet 2.5 and 3.0 APIs are not entirely compatible, so you may have to patch source code to support newer version of the API. You can find the specification and migration guides in the Internet.
