#122 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Create a WPI-Package

Reported by: Batchheizer Owned by:
Priority: Feedback Pending Milestone: Enhanced
Component: general Version: 1.6.0-b22 WSE
Severity: highest Keywords:


Some suggestions for the planed WPI:

  • PACKAGEID: please put all infos like now "1.6.0-b22 WSE" into "\major\minor[\revision[\fixlevel]" and not into "vendor\application\package".
  • Set JAVA_HOME in config.sys Info. In eCS 2.1 this set links on my system to "E:\PROGRAMS\JAVA142".
  • Add a association to *.JAR / *JAR from java.exe with "-jar %**F" or so.
  • Add an icon to JAVA*.exe-files.

Thanks for your work on JAVA.

If PACKEGEID would be netlabs\java\openjava160b22\2011\07\12 or so an update to a next java would be netlabs\java\openjava161b4\2012\01\11 or so. That would be in conflict with REQUIRES for JAVA-WPIs and updates over an existing JAVA 1.6.

If ID = netlabs\java\opensdk\1\6\0\22 any updated version (e.g. netlabs\java\opensdk\1\6\1\8) would have the same vendor\application\package and applications or WPIs will find them correct and could check if the version is ok.

Please keep in mind that there will be no WPI from us (all our projects will go the RPM way + ZIPs for those real geeks who doesn't like installers). So although we will help you if you need the details about the installation, we will not support WPI-based installations and will not fix related bugs. Just to make it clear.

Regarding your suggestions, they make sense of course. (Though they also clearly show some of the key WarpIn? limitations :)

Interesting to see, that I'm now a geek :-)

I wote for WPI too, as RPM is currently completely useless for endusers.
As long as RPM can't do simple things, as installing to a user selected
dir on any partition - nobody wants it.

I think the Java6 project owners should consider what eCS users want,
and not what a few Linux Geeks wants.

(but I admit, that I most likely will dl the ZIP ;-) )
