Description Robert Rati 2013-07-31 13:42:03 UTC
Description of problem:
Apache Hadoop has a component called httpfs which uses the catalina.sh and other shell scripts from the tomcat source.  It does not appear the shell scripts from the source are included in any of the tomcat rpms.

Is there a reason not to have these scripts packaged?  Can a subpackage be updated/created that includes these shell scripts?

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

I've checked git history...
In versions 5.0 and 5.5 catalina.sh was installed as d%(name)
Then it was completely replaced.

We can ask Alexander Kurtakov or fedora-java what community thinks about it

Comment 2 Robert Rati 2013-08-19 16:44:26 UTC
I talked with Alex and he didn't know why the scripts weren't packaged.

Stanislav (sochotni) guessed the scripts might have been removed for the transition to systemd.

Just to clarify, the httpfs module needs more than just the catalina.sh script.  It needs some of the other shell scripts as well (which are largely required because of catalina.sh).

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 20 development cycle.
Changing version to '20'.

Using the tomcat@ service I was able to get what I needed.  Doesn't seem the shell scripts will be required.
