Re: [smila-dev] Distribution DBXML

This is the ideal approach.  If it makes sense (technically and time wise) you would put an insulating layer between you and these libraries.  Then people can plug in whatever implementation of the XML DB support they need/want.  your project can supply some number as appropriate.

Note, leaving it to the user to download something works IF that thing is somehow optional. If it is a required part of your function (i.e., your system does now work without this other lib) then you will be deemed to have distributed it and have the same CQ issues.  This is a somewhat gray area that needs to be dealt with on a case by case basis.

p.s., It is great to see this kind of discussion going on in an open and transparent way.

Sure. But I'm not proposing to completely replace Berkeley DB by Xindice in big projects.
The idea was just to include it to be able to provide a SMILA distribution for demos that works out of the box if we cannot include Berkeley DB in an Eclipse download. For big projects it should still be possible to replace Xindice by a more performance DB (i.e. Berkeley), and the bundles for this could be downloaded from another source.

Cheers,
Jürgen.

I think that Berkeley dbxml is more popular and better supported that
Xindice.. are there any known cases of using Xindice in big projects?
If binary libraries are problem itself, I think we could require to
install berkeley dbxml separately (at lease for the initial version),
anyway we still need java interface for these libraries (probably can
be
installed separately too)

Hi,

There is an XML database by Apache named Xindice,
http://xml.apache.org/xindice/index.html. The lib directory
of the download looks quite harmless. Could it work as an
replacement? Maybe somebody can have a look at this who knows which
features are needed.

Cheers,
Jürgen.

We got new feedback for the CQ for our DBXML Bundles.

What do you think, what we should do,

We can separate it from our main distribution but smila need a xml
database...


See the comment from the CQ:

Hi Sebastian. This contribution is very large and will quite
          
possibly
    
take on

        
the order of a month and half for the IP team to do the review
          
that's
    
required.

        
How do you intend to use this code? Are you planning to wrap it
          
into
    
a Equinox

        
bundle and distribute it that way? Or is this something that the
          
user
    
will be

        
required to install separately?
