jPOS6

/by apr/

This time we got it right!

I’ve tagged a v1_5_2 version and moved the version number to 1.5.3, but while working on these major build system changes I thought it was time go up to 1.6.0.

We’ll refer to jPOS 1.6.x versions as jPOS 6 and its svn repository
is https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/jpos/trunk/jpos6/

I was thinking about doing these changes on the current ‘jpos’ directory, but looking further into the work we have ahead, it seems like it will require several days or weeks to have everything migrated to the new environment, so a ‘jpos6’ temporary directory seems like the way to go. Once we are ready to release ‘jpos6’, we can get rid of the older versions in ‘trunk’ (it will remain available in tag/v1_5_2/*)

I’m committing a basic installation there with just a the main ‘jpos’ and ‘q2’. The nice thing about the new layout is that we don’t need conditional compilation anymore, if something requires some extra library, it will be distributed in its own module.

I will update the README and INSTALL files as time permits (help is welcome), but to get an idea of where we’re going, you may want to read the first chapters of the jPOS-EE SDK guide.

If you want to stay up to date with the latest commits, you can subscribe to the SVN notifications list (send e-mail to jpos-commits-subscribe at jpos dot org).

This time we got it right! (you’ve got to read that piece, it’s so funny and sad at the same time that everything there is sooooo true…)
