Description Mikolaj Izdebski 2013-06-25 13:39:52 EDT
Description of problem:
mvn-rpmbuild should be deprecated (but not removed yet).  Ideally the script itself would print a warning saying that it's not supposed to be used any longer and that users should mograte to other ways of building packages.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Mikolaj, how should we do the equivalent of mvn-rpmbuild in eclipse builds ? Note: we haven't integrated with xmvn yet and do all our builds using mvn-rpmbuild. I want to be sure that we have a clean path forward before declaring it as deprecated.
Comment 2 Mikolaj Izdebski 2013-06-25 14:30:21 EDT
Deprecating mvn-rpmbuild doesn't mean removing it.  As long as there are more than a few packages using it and no obvious alternative is available it will be kept around.

As a long-term solution I think that adding support for installing Eclipse plugins would be ideal.  I am working on automating installation of Eclipse plugins and features and I am aiming for Fedora 20.

Also take a look at bug#977984.  One of important use cases of that feature is replacing binary JARs in lib/ directory of OSGi bundles with symlinks so that Eclipse plugins can be installed automatically.

I believe that this bug is fixed in javapackages-tools-3.4.1-1,
which is available in Fedora Rawhide, so I am closing this bug now.

The build containing the fix can be found at Koji:
