GlassFish source repository on the new java.net - now live!


Following the earlier first wave of projects migrating to the new java.net infrastructure, the main GlassFish project is now almost fully available and the glassfish-svn repository is now available for checkins.

Jane is suggesting the following two options to start using the new environment :

Check-out source to a clean workspace:
svn checkout https://svn.java.net/svn/glassfish~svn/trunk/v3

Switch workspace to the new GlassFish SVN repository
1. cd <v3-dir>
2. svn switch --relocate https://svn.dev.java.net/svn/glassfish-svn https://svn.java.net/svn/glassfish~svn
3. svn info and verify the following:
URL: https://svn.java.net/svn/glassfish~svn/trunk/v3
Repository Root: https://svn.java.net/svn/glassfish~svn

Several people have reported that they were able to follow these instructions (with fast checkout!) and commit code. If any of the above doesn't work, please report your issues (here or on the DEV alias). More in further posts about the other services (mailing lists, bug tracking, website, etc.). So far so good.

Update: Eirik was kind enough to quickly update SVNSearch.org to the new location. Enjoy!

Building GFv3 with Maven and SVN


Julien has a very nice detailed description of how to build the GlassFish v3 Server from the SVN Sources using Maven. Instructions and a couple of screenshots.

The distributed (and just "different" than GFv2) way of building GFv3 has been a common source of discussions in the DEV alias; hopefully Julien's note will help a bit.

Added: Arun covers the topic in TOTD #33.

Brown bag meetings for GlassFish v3

Real brown bag

Similar to the User Experience Meetings conducted throughout the v2 development process, Anissa is scheduling a series of open-to-all brown bag series for GlassFish v3 builds. With the recent move to subversion (on our way to Mercurial), is it probably a good time for everyone still using CVS exclusively to get up to speed with the first meeting on October 30th 2007. Maven 2 is also a key component to GlassFish v3 and will be covered in the next meeting.

Details (hours, conference call numbers, slides) are available here. Times are pretty US and Europe-friendly. Calls should be available for replay for everyone else.

Note for the non-US audience that "Brown Bag" refers to people bringing their own lunch (in a brown bag). Hopefully this explanation is not too far off as I'm not American either... ;)

The Road to Hg... Goes Through SVN! GlassFish SCM Plans

Old Photo of Col de Braus

We are taking a detour through SVN on the way from CVS to Hg. It is a combination of (lack of) maturity of the conversion tools from CVS to Hg, plus window of opportunity closing on us, plus constraints in some of our available infrastructure. This is a temporary detour but will let us continue with the modularization work needed for GlassFish v3.

Check details in Jerome's Road to Hg writeup. Also see older TA posts.

I think those hairpins match this hybrid view from Google Maps. Also see Ask Results for more images.
