Description Mikolaj Izdebski 2012-05-22 11:37:46 EDT
libreoffice seems to bundle at least the following libraries:

1) saxon is bundled in libreoffice-core
Jar file location: /usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/classes/saxon9.jar

2) hsqldb is bundled in libreoffice-base
Jar file location: /usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/classes/hsqldb.jar

Comment 4 Caolan McNamara 2012-05-22 12:07:21 EDT
yeah, I know, because the two later version of the above cause trouble.

latest 1.8.X series hsqldb doesn't write databases compatible with older versions, IIRC fred said he might being out a point release with a toggle which would allow that, must ping him about that

latest saxon has removed from the free version the features that some older versions had and which our usage of it relies on :-(, plan there was to hopefully try and remove the use of saxon entirely and replace it, that seems to have gotten stalled upstream however
Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2012-05-24 12:07:47 EDT
Pinged fred and said he might get around to releasing a hsqldb- which I guess would appear at http://sourceforge.net/projects/hsqldb/files/hsqldb/hsqldb_1_8_1/ that would solve 50% of the problem anyway
Comment 6 Caolan McNamara 2012-09-11 06:43:57 EDT
for saxon, its required for xslt2 support, but there's been a lot of work (IIUC) to move our xslt filters to xslt1 and use the libxslt transformer, which is now the default. So last step would be to split out the saxon-using transformed into an available-from-elsewhere extension if someone really needs it, and not bundle/include it by default. dtardon's got some hack-in-progress there apparently
Comment 7 Caolan McNamara 2012-09-12 06:37:27 EDT
reassign to dtardon for the saxon bit anyway
