If you're interested in JBoss Application Server I'm forwarding the
current status of the packaging effort.

You may be wondering what's happening in the jboss-as package world :) I
know I haven't updated you since some time, but finally there is a bunch
I'm working on jboss-as-7.1.1-4. This will be a pretty big update, a lot
of new subsystems will be enabled and the way I work on the spec will be
1. New subsystems.
Compared to 7.1.1-3, following new subsystems will be enabled:
As you can see, 7.1.1-4 is focusing on OSGi stuff. This involved
packaging a lot of new JBoss OSGi dependencies (12 packages). As usual,
you can watch the table for latest packaging info:
2. New way of working with AS7 patches
With 7.1.1-3 we reached more than 80 patches to the AS7 codebase to
compile it and make it run on Fedora. The amount of patches was pretty
close to what RHEL5 had :) It wasn't fun to manage it.
So far I moved new subsystems to minimalistic profile and afterwards I
build it. Over the time, when I added more and more subsystems - the
patch set was growing.
Since we have only a few modules not available in Fedora, starting from
now - I'm building default profile and commenting out modules which are
still not available. This simple step will save me a lot of work and
make the development more stable.
I think 7.1.1-4 is going to have about 25 patches.
Once we'll have all AS7 deps available, the goal is to rebase one more
time and leave only patches that are necessary and remove everything
else. This will decrease the patch amount one more time.
3. New linked modules
The new way of building mentioned in #3 showed me that I forgot to link
some modules. This will be fixed and about 35 additional modules
(/usr/share/jboss-as/modules/...) will be added.
4. ExampleDS available
There was one issue hanging since some time in BZ:
In 7.1.1-4 we'll have the ExampleDS finally available!
If you want to help me pushing 7.1.1-4 out, please take some packages

High priority is #830763, since it blocks everything else... If you have
questions or need help, please join #fedora-java IRC channel on freenode.
